Dead Movie Stars

Quote I Heard Recently:
“The ‘t’ is silent, as in Harlow.” Margot Asquith (1864-1945) to Jean Harlow, who had been mispronouncing her first name.

  9. Jokes are a lot like puppies, far less enjoyable after you take them apart to find out how they work. Still, for those of you who didn't get this I shall explain.



    Hint #1: Jean's last name is pronounced "HAR-LO"




    Hint #2: What do you get when you add a "t" to the end of HAR-LO?



    Answer: Harlot, Noun: A prostitute or promiscuous woman.
