I recently heard the 1-15-39 show, where the gang is at the Drugstore across from the Studio. Hearing stuff like "Hit the Jackpot on Whole Wheat" and "One Tuna On Rye, No Brush, No Lather, No Rub In" was funny, and I thought it was just done to get laughs. But then I heard an episode of Fibber McGee & Molly (10-31-39) where they stop at a lunch counter and the person does similar stuff. Do these sort of Lunch Counter antics have any basis in reality, or were they just done for laughs on Radio shows?
