My Favorite Jokes by Gannon and Gerstenblatt EDITOR'S NOTE: It's not just comedy but similar life experiences which Cannon -and Gerstenblatt share. Both grew up in Providence, R.I., and became teachers. Wil Gerstenblatt while teaching did television commercials and recalls a pupil who instead of saying, "I saw your commercial," said, "Hey, chief, you came into my house uninvited last night." Gannon and Gerstenblatt have performed at The Bitter End in New York, many of the Playboy clubs, various hotels, and the Tonight Show on television. Here are some of their skits, and jokes: "My wife," says Wil Gerstenblatt, "is very helpful.

All right, Mr. Notwhat, your mother's name? Man: Hannah. Robot: And sex? Man: Female, of course! Robot: All right, Mrs. Notwhat. Man: No, not me, my mother Hannah, she's the female. Robot: I understand. What do you do in your spare time, Mrs. Notwhat? Man: How many times do I have to tell you I'm a man? Robot: In your spare time you're a man? Man: Now wait a minute. You've still got my name wrong. Robot: Spelling is wrong? Please give the * correct letter. Man: I-Robol: Correction note, correct letter, I. Change name from Norwhat to Nitwit! All right, Nitwit, have you any previous skills? Man: I used to be a comic in the old days and-Robot: No previous skills. Man: Why can't I be interviewed by a human being instead of a robot? Robot: It's as I told you. Avoidance of the human error, human error, human error · Psychiatry plays a crucial role in our lives today. We know this for a fact because our psychiatrist told us. And so we wondered what it would be like if some of the more prominent people in history had undergone analysis. For example--Adam. Psychiatrist: All right. Mr. Adam, just say the first thing that comes into your mind. Adam: I came across this creature. I remember it clearly because that morning 1 woke up with a terrible pain in my side and what do you think--my rib was gone. The first thing this strange creature said was "Take out the garbage!" · Two men on the street meet. "Sir," asks one, "how do you get to the telephone company?"
