One Of My Favorite Risqué Soundies

In this hilariously racy Soundie from 1940, Joy Hodges sings this ditty from the 1912 Ziegfeld Follies.

I was just thinking about this one and cracking myself up. You must have read my mind!

This one's GREAT, even better than "Princess Papooly's Papaya", with an audience.

'Twas that pesky fickle finger of fate (a.k.a. schedule conflict) that kept you from attending the early spring KFJC Psychotronix Film Fest when I showed this (you were out of town teaching workshops then). They went nuts! I've rarely heard such laughter in a group of roughly 220 people.

As you know, inducing an audience to laugh hyserically and generally go apeshit is the reason I do this in the first place.

Alas, in the real world, not the fantasy world, I just am a little dingy. More than a little, actually.
