Shave and a haircut — From the Red Skelton radio show, 1952, “Barber who is trying to improve his shop” – Red Skelton as the inebriate Willie Lump-Lump, a would-be barber
Customer: Nice little shop you’ve got here.
Willie Lump-Lump (Red Skelton): I got it with my GI loan; I’ve only been open for 3 years; all I owe the government is a grudge.
Customer: I was in the service.
Willie Lump-Lump (Red Skelton): Enlisted man?
Customer; No, I was an officer [pause] What’re you strapping me in for?
