Back when the Fulton Fish Market was open, before Giuliani closed it down, tour guides would make fish jokes. Why? Because the whole area smelled of fish all day. "Know why I'm taking you through here? Just For the Halibut!"

I am a tour guide. I worked for Grayline the double decker company. What amazed me were the veteran tour guides who had more years at the company than teeth. Trust me. Medical *and* dental were dealbreakers in the upcoming Union contract.

I use jokes borrowed from other comedians and personalities who use puns. I’ve borrowed from theBowery Boys, Ken Rudin (NPR) and fellow guides. Most jokes are mostly puns and very family friendly. Some are a bit subtle.

The 5 boros joined together in 1898. Most Brooklynites were not happy about the merger, calling it The Mistake of ’98, which is also what my dad used to call my little brother before my mom made him stop.

So I have been a tour guide on a double-decker bus for more than six years now. What am I doing? All the trappings of New York City life. Fame, fortune, beautiful women--and I'm on top of a bus talking to tourists from Kansas.

Q: "Do people still jump off the Brooklyn Bridge?" A: "No, the Verazano is much higher above the water, so suicidal people have much better luck there. ...On the Brooklyn Bridge, it's kind of hit-or-miss."

Old tour guide about the New York City accent: A one-L lama is a Buddhist cleric. A two-L llama is a South American animal. A three-L lama is a really big fire.

The job really brings customer service to a whole new level. Just the other day I told a tourist to hop off in Chinatown. He looked at me perplexed. I told him, you think hop on, hop off is about the bus? It's code for tourist trap.

In 1993 Staten Island petitioned to secede from the rest of New York. They were unable to do so but most New Yorkers are hopeful that one day they will succeed.
