"Panama" Red Skelton
- Well, awhile ago I received, as a gift, the Red Skelton 5 VHS
collection. Anywho, Skelton may have done televison's first
marijuana joke. It was definitely a wèêd joke, but there could have
been some before 1954, however if so, I don't know of any.
And the humor went something like this:
[| Skelton gestures with his fingers pinched together -
a classic mime of joint tokin'|]
"A pilot is standing in a airport, and a guy somking one of those
happy sticks comes up to him and asks the pilot.....
HAPPY STICK SMOKER: "Say buddy, how high will you be flying today?"
PILOT: "We'll be flying at 20,000 ft."
HAPPY STICK SMOKER: "Wanna race?"
Yes, I know altitude is not, necessarily, a gauge of airspeed, BUT,
Skelton wasn't teaching aeronautics, he was doing comedy AND he got a
really big laugh.
