"If the Russians would build some undershirts that won't crawl vip me In hot weather," said a fat man, "I'd b* BO grateful I'd even read a book by Karl Marx." Shoelace* Wanted Another man said he'd never Jeer at SoWct scientists again if they'd come up with a pair of shoelaces guaranteed to outlast hLs shoes. A third remarked he'd settle if they'd invent "just one really good television program." "They're supposed to be so good at propaganda," said a hen-pecked husband. "How about them inventing a story that will make my wife laugh when I come home late?" Anrl an office receptionist pitched this problem: I'd be happy to see it."
