Lunedi Lunacy

I was telling my friend Ron about the gaggle of school kids at the Aquarium in Genova and he reminded me of an old Joyce Grenfell monologue. Grenfell was a brilliant monologist - one of those talented people - Ruth Draper, Bob Newhart, George Carlin - who created a world of characters and situations as they stood alone centre-stage. Sadly it appears to be a type of entertainer that has gone much the way of the dodo, perhaps because it calls too much on the imagination at at time when imagination is only a word in TV commercials.

Any suggestions as to what George was doing?

I once got my arm stuck in an airplane soon as the fireman said I might miss lunch..I freaked out and ripped my arm right out of there..left some skin behind..but I was hungry.
