You'll find that Jack and the gang repeated many of
their jokes each year when they did their Christmas
shopping skits........one example of this is when
a clerk behind the counter tells Dennis he looks
confused and decides so because it's Christmas and
there's so many gifts to buy......Dennis quips back,
"That explains December, but what about the rest of
the year?". The clerk answers, "I wouldn't know;
I'm standing behind this counter because in a fit
of excitement, I sold my pants!". Another joke that
is used often, (my favorite) is when Mary and Jack
go to the lingerie department. A man with a silly
voice lays out nightgowns for JB and ML to look at.
Mary at one point asks the man to lay out a silk
nightgown and he excuses himself to put gloves on.
He tells Mary that "touching that stuff with me
bare hands makes me a noivous wreck....especially
the black ones!". Then Mary notices little loops
all the way around the hem of the nightie; she
asks what the loops are for and the man says "Oh!
You hook them around your toes so the nightgown
don't creep up on you!". Great stuff, huh? I
can't here that line enough.....I'm glad they used
a lot of their great jokes over and over again! :-)
