“What came after the stone age and the bronze age?"/"The sausage.”

A joke about the “sausage” (or “Saus Age") is:

TEACHER: What came after the stone age and the bronze age?
STUDENT: The saus-age.


The joke was printed in many newspapers in 1907.

Schoolmaster (examining class in early English history)—Now, then, boys, first we have the Stone Age, then the Bronze Age. Now can any of you give me another age?
