With Mirth And Laughter Let Old Wrinkles Come


We see that Loretta uses Jack Benny's old gag of referring to every one of her birthdays as her 39th. This woman, devoid of the capability of original thought, sits and reads in her armchair with all the haughtiness of Marie Antoinette. Go figure. Meanwhile, Leroy does his part to make Loretta's vanity well known.

He doesn't need to make a further pun, as the man on the other end of the line obviously knows Loretta is closer to 89 since the Lockhorns are trapped in some weird time-loop prison.

Wings: There's no pun, just Jack Benny's gag. His estate would sue, but what could you get out of Leroy in a lawsuit?
