If you bother with such trivialities as Facebook, you may want to check out the fan page for 1930s comedy duo Colonel Stoopnagle and Budd. I knew of them through their appearance in the 1932 mish-mash movie International House with W. C. Fields, and in the live action segment of a Max Fleischer cartoon (below), but the Facebook page has led me to a plethora of vintage weirdness from the duo. Fair warning though, listening to early 1930s comedy requires you to adjust to its much slower pace than what we are used to. If you feel an overwhelming urge to multitask while listening, try doing some whittling, or tat an antimacassar.
