[Someone is heard to shout, in the midst of the raid, 'Don't tell 'em your right name!'] In court the next day, the defense attorney asks that each person charged be allowed to perform. Dolly Lewis, arrested for singing risqué songs, does I ain't that kind of a baby. The orchestra plays from the jury box. The chorus line, held for murdering the black bottom, performs in frills and bathing costumes. The judge and the defense hold a colloquy about a dead waiter ['Was he dead? Well, if he wasn't, he told me a lie.'] Then, Irene Tobasco, charged with an improper dance in scanty attire, performs in a diaphanous gown with a bare midriff. Is she 'raw' or 'well done?' What will the judge decide?"--Internet movie database, as viewed on February 4, 2008.

"Comic songs"--Vitaphone films, 2003. "A vaudeville act. Trixie Friganza performs first a story and then a song. For the story, she wears a wide-brimmed hat and a matching diaphanous shawl. She tells of a visit to a friend who has a five-year old son. The mother tells Trixie a tale of stepping out on her husband, and to conceal the story from the boy, spells out key words. By the story's end, mom is in for a surprise and Trixie has a moral for us. Then, the hat and shawl come off, a [bass] fiddle comes out, and Trixie sings us a comic song about her first two husbands"--Internet movie database, as viewed on February 5, 2008. Trixie is a buxom blonde in the vein of Mae West. The moral of the first tale is "Don't spell in front of your children. Nowadays children know an awful lot before they go to school."
