FAVORITE jokes byTIMMJEROqCRS amors NOTE: Timmie Rogers, started dancing at age 12, but by the time he was 78 he was ready for the advice which Timmie Moore (Kingfish on the Amos 'n' Andy Show) gave him. Says Rogers:"/ was doing a lot of pratfalls," and Tim Moore said: "One day you may break your leg and you're out of show business. Study comedy. You've got a funny face; in fact, your mouth is so big you can whisper in your own ear!" Timmie's latest record album features his character. Super Soul Brother. He's played leading clubs and is cur- rently working with Redd Foxx Enterprises; he and Redd have been appear- ./ng on the same bill in many dubs. Here are some of Timmie ("Oh Yeah") Rogers' jokes: · I like Hollywood, I especially like Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Thafs where all the famous movie stars leave their prints in the cement They have Al Jolson's knees, Bing Crosby's pipe, Jimmy Durante's nose, Betty Grable's legs--and they've even got a print of Jackie Gleason's stomach. In the rainy season it fills up with water and the kids use it for a swimming pool. They even tried to get a print of Muhammad Ali's mouth, but it was moving so fast, it kept eating the sidewalk! · Everybody is worried about the economy, but I outsmarted the recession of 1975 cause I went broke during the prosperity of 1974! · I thought I'd beat the inflation by buying one of those small, cheap, foreign cars. They only cost $1600 and they're great The only thing is--since when do you call a motor "optional equipment?" · Today people have to joke about prices at the grocery store. In my neighborhood they've got special escorted tours through the meat department Ifs one of the only ways my neighbors can see what a real steak looks like. · Things are getting so tough that a lot of rich folks in New York have had to give up their fancy cars and ride to work on the subway. One lady who had never been in the subway before walked through the open door of a subway train and asked: "Which way is the club car?" · There is one place where there is no unemployment problem. They need all the help they can get: The clerks at the unemployment office. I asked one man in the unemployment line if he's been waiting long! He said: "Not really, but I do wish President Truman would do something about getting us jobs!" You've taken your last rough puff, once you come up to the smooth taste of extra coolness. Come up to KODL *·£!·£*%. ' '·* -. ' Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined That Cigarette Smoking Is Dangerous to Your Health. ^ -Mitts. 13 rag. "tar," 0.8 mg. nicotine; Kings. 16 mg.
