    Reminds of a time a cook at work was talking about music and I asked him to guess who sings the song American Woman. He said he didn't know and asked me to tell him. I simply said "Guess Who sings American Woman." After several rounds of this he became quite aggravated and I explained. He never discussed music with me again.

    Yeah, we were all a bit dazed and confused back in the 70s.

    I messed it up and the end.

    Last Costello comment should've been: Guess who plays tonight?

    I confused myself.

    erm..why is this relevant?? sorry..the 'Guess Who', 'Who', 'Yes' skit on the 'classic' A and C exchange has been around for years

    Like their original 'baseball' 'joke'

    It was never that funny

    Relevant to who? You? Why is your opinion relevant? You can point out the 'relevance' of most of the threads here. Why just this one?

    Maybe I should've made Costello's first comment "You mean the band?", then Abbott could answer "The Band played last week"...

    Either way, lighten up. Try to get upset over something more relevant - like world hunger.

    ah, I see now.

    The only thing you find funny are references to women's breasts.

    "breasts (sorry ~ 'pairs'!!!)"

    Okay how's this:
    Abbott: Hey 'Bust'ello
    Costello: Why'd you call me that, Bud?
    Abbott: "Cuz you're a boob"
    Costello: Thanks for keeping me abreast of that."
    Abbott: I always enjoy 'tit'illating conversation"
    Costello: Cut that out or I'm going home to India'nipple'is.
    Abbott: Hey on the way pick me up a couple of 'jugs' of milk, will ya?"
    Costello: Want some melons too?"
    Abbott: Of course. You udder know that."

    Wow..that was a LOT of questions in your previous message, none of which I feel are worthy of a reply.

    The reference to 'women's breasts' WAS an attempt at humour by my good self. Personally, I find it equally amusing as anything that the hugely unfunny A & C pairing ever produced

    I would just say that the original 'Who, Yes, Guess Who etc' tilt on the A&C baseball speech has been around for years. If you think it is so hilarious that it is worth reproducing in full, ok, fine...

    I am flattered that you scroll through threads looking for messages I post that you can reproduce in a humourous way to belittle me. Well, humbled , really.

    I am afraid that I will not be returning the favour.

    'ow'??

    actually, no 'crony' of Robbie's. We are not friends

    Just pointing out a couple of things. main one is, it doesn' take comments from me to 'kill' the dubious 'joy' of an A and C routine.

    Do YOU think they are funny?? Just asking

    Even Abbott and Costello's routine was a variation of an even older classic skit.
    You either love it or not. Much like British comedy.

    St. Dummynic,

    It was your last thread so it wasn't hard to find.

    I am also flattered (and humbled) you find me so interesting to troll. And who gives a rat's ass what you find are "worthy of a reply" You're irrelevant.

    As far as it not being original, I never heard it before so it was original to me.

    Feel free to keep stalking me. I find it amusing.
