Henny Youngman (1906-1998) was a British-born comedian and violinist. Known for his fast-delivered one-liners, his most popular and best known one-liner was "Take my wife, please!" Since then, the joke has been used in several Muppet productions.


  • In the Sesame Street song "I Love My Elbows", Kermit sings a lyric - "Hey, take my ankles, please!"
  • In Elmo's World: Violins, a violin repeatedly makes the joke: "Take my bow, please!"
  • In a Sesame Street sketch, Bert reads from his pigeon joke book. One joke is “Take my hens, please!”
  • In Episode 103 of The Muppet Show, Fozzie Bear says the "Take my wife, please" joke when Kermit asks him to please stop.
  • Episode 3139 of Sesame Street features a chicken comedian, Henny Drummschtick, who parodies Henny.
  • In an Sesame Street sketch, Ernie auditions Merry Men for a Robin Hood play, and finds one in Harvey Kneeslapper, who bothers Ernie with countless one-liners, including "Take my wife... please!"
