How about giving us the date of the original publication?
Currently I’m in the week of May 9, 1994
How about $200 for the Kleenex
I have two boxes of Kleenex hidden away.
I haven’t heard much Goon Show, but I’ve heard the Lurgy. Very surreal.
Lurgy Strikes Britain Is one of the funniest of the Goon shows. It’s from 1954. Another of my favorites is The Canal. There’s another great one, I can’t recall the title, but in it Neddie has to drink Loch Ness. If you have never listened to the Goon Show, you can get it as an app. The app also has Hancock’s Half Hour. The Brits know about the Goons and Tony Hancock. It’s very funny radio from the 1950’s. I first listened to it back in Tallahassee 45 years ago. My favorite characters were Henry Crun (Spike Mulligan) and Minnie Bannister (Peter Sellers) Here’s a clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOgsNX33byk
