Jokes from 1935!
Mr. Main: "Toupee or not toupee, that is the question."
Some parents are rude, but others have learned to keep still when the kids are talking.
Mr. Shearer: So Evelyn, how did the experiment come out?"
Evelyn: (holding up test tube) It came out this end."
G.M.: "When is a man not a man?"
V.S.: "When a pretty girl passes by and he turns to rubber."
LISTEN TO THIS:
Where can a man get a cap for his knee?
Or a key for a lock of his hair?
Can your eyes be called an academy
Because there are pupils there?
In the crown of your hair,
What jewels are found?
Who travels the bridge of your nose?
Could you use in shingling the roof of your mouth
The nails on the end of your toes?
Could the crook in your elbow be sent to jail?
If so, what did he do?
Could you sit in the shade of the palm of your hand?
Or beat on the drum of your ear?
Does the calf on your leg ear the corn on your toe?
Then why not grow corn on the ear?

"Pickles" the orchestra played the accompaniment. They also greatly
enjoyed playing for a radio broadcast.
