Abbott And Costello For Sunday...!

Instead of the usual 'toons this Sunday, I thought we would take a trip back through time to the days of Abbott and Costello!

These guys were very popular during the '40s and '50s, back in the "Golden Age" of television. I can remember watching their movies back in the 1950s when I was kid! Funny stuff!

Many of the routines they used in their stand up are still being used in some fashion today. Even folks that never saw them can remember the routines!

The boys had a great combination of slapstick and Vaudeville type humor to really make an audience grin, smile, or laugh out loud!

Ya know, the more I watch this last one...the more sense it makes! That's pretty scary!

Coffee out on the patio this morning. It's chilly, but that's OK. Want some marble cake with peanut butter icing?

Sooo funny! They do math like our government!

Cake and peanut butter icing? - save me two slices!

I don't remember these so thank you for something new.

Marble cake and peanut butter iceing. You sure know how to win a heart. I'ts mighty cold here this morning so I am ready for a really hot cup this morning.

Hey Phyllis...
It still makes me laugh after all these years!

The cake is a little dry, but some butter (or ice cream) will fix that right up!

Thanks for dropping by this morning!

Hey Jo...
Gotta change things up once in a while, ya know?

Hot coffee and warm cake! What a breakfast!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming over this morning!

The videos made me smile. They were such great comedians. Thanks

Hey John...
Certainly my pleasure!

Glad you could come by today!

I totally agree -- masters of verbal clown comedy. My personal favorite (after "who's on first?") is "I've got twenty, too" -
