Trouble everywhere this week
Trouble at the B.B.C.
After recent disgraceful episodes a new clean-fun board (Sir John Reith, Hon. Mrs. Wowser, Col. Dawnay, with Gladstone Murray in attendance) is to be set up to search all comedians in advance for double-meaning gags.
What's the difference between a baby and a champagne cork?
There's no difference around here, boy.
The trouble in the doorway is Bernard Shaw being removed to the Apology Room for mentioning sex on Sunday.
Trouble in the Army
Indignation is felt in the decline in favour of goats and other regimental mascots. This is regarded at yet another betrayal of the army leaders in the war.
Trouble in the theatre
"We will never surrender to Equity" say West End managers. "Undaunted we will carry on, if we have to play the show ourselves."
Trouble in the Zoo
Argument continued upon Sir Arthur Keith and evolution. The monks, by a large majority, repudiate the suggestion that they have descended from man.
Trouble in Harley Street
A secret public meeting of the British Medical Soviet (with non-advertising banners) is to be held to prescribe a suitable poison for the Medical Practitioners Union.
Colonel Blimp's new deal
Gad, Sir, Hitler was right. We should absorb our unemployed by starting them building concentration camps to lock themselves in.
