Barber trying to improve his shop

Barber trying to improve his shop –  From the Red Skelton radio show, 1952, “Barber who is trying to improve his shop” – Red Skelton as the inebriate Willy Lump Lump, a would-be barber

Friend: Howdy, Willy! What’s cooking?

Willy Lumplump (Red Skelton): Nothin’!  It always smells this way in here!

Friend: How’s business?

Willy Lumplump (Red Skelton): I’m going to have to wait for the tourist trade – everybody in this burg’s wise to me, you know!

Friend: If there’s ever a depression and people want to cut their throats, you’ll do a landslide business.

Willy Lumplump (Red Skelton): Oh, I don’t think so … not as long as we have the boys in Washington, they’re cut-throatin’ businesses already, you know!
