eftifino Burlesque/vaudeville joke routines (30) RE: Burlesque/vaudeville joke routines 28 Oct 15

Irish comedians used to get good mileage out of this one. It's in the 'Whose on first" genre:

A father cobbler is introducing his rather simple son to shoemaking.

Dad: Now, Son, the first thing you get is the last.
son: How can the first thing you get be the last?
Dad: The last is what you get first.
Son: So what do you get last?
dad: that's First!
Son: So what is?
dad: Your Grandfather's old Iron Foot.
son: I didn't know he was disabled.
Dad: No, Granddad's old Iron Foot is the last.
son: Which comes First?
Dad: that's right. Good. You're getting the hang of it. Now, Hide.
Son: Hide? Why should I hide? I've done nothin'
Dad: No, son, Hide, Hide, the Cow's outside.
Son: Well, Don't bring the damned thing in!

I suppose you had to be there!
