    When I was a kid in the late 1940s my dad bought that on a 78 rpm record. My mother finally got so disgusted with hearing it over and over and over that she gave the record to my uncle, who thereafter drove his wife (my mother’s sister) bats with it. Thanks for posting it. :)

    Another Abbott and Costello classic is “Susquahanna Hat Company.”

    The late seventies sit-com “One Day at a Time” did a nice homage to this with a routine about the mother quizzing her daughter about going to concert where Yes, Who, and The Band will be playing. I’m sure you can figure out how it went.
