Good lord! It must be getting on for 60 years since I heard that. I'd
completely forgotten about it but the memory came back as clear as day
when I read your post[1]. Must look it out on YouTube.

I think some friends had it on a 78rpm record when I was very young. I
seem to remember that I was expected to find it hilarious like everyone
