Abstract:

During the Keep sweeping the cobwebs off the moon segment, Jay Flippen patters in a southern accent, perhaps a minstrel-style accent, joking about, for example, "the Scotchman who wouldn't go to school because he had to pay attention;" or, "any girl is liable to be dumb, but she abuses the privilege;" or "a bachelor has no children, to speak of." The second number is introduced as "If bricklayers can lay bricks, why can't plumbers lay plums?" but is in fact Magnolia: "Clara Bow, Ain't she delish, Season her with Lillian Gish, What've you got? Magnolia."
