Known for her signature “How-dee!” greeting, performances on the Grand Ole Opry, and straw hat with the $1.98 price tag still attached, Hall of Fame member Minnie Pearl was country music’s queen of comedy.

Share your new joke book with friends and family in the spirit of April Fools’ Day. All ages. Taylor Swift Education Center.​
