1. Dear Abby: My boyfriend is going to be 20 years old next month. I’d like to give him something nice for his birthday. What do you think he’d like? —Carol
    Dear Carol: Nevermind what he’d like, give him a tie.

    Dear Abby: Our son married a girl when he was in the service. They were married in February and she had an 8 1/2-pound baby girl in August. She said the baby was premature. Can an 8 1/2-pound baby be this premature? —Wanting to Know
    Dear Wanting: The baby was on time. The wedding was late. Forget it. 

    Here, 13 of Dear Abby’s best zingers.
