Cultural Signpost of the Day

My friend Ignota has three separate doctors here in Palookaville--a neurologist, a rheumatologist and an endocrinologist.   They're all named Dr.Singh.

Afterthought: Time to recycle the old joke?
--Hello, Shapiro, Shapiro, Shapiro and Shapiro, how may I direct your call?
--Ah, yes, is Shapiro there?
--No, he's on vacation this week.
--Well, is Shapiro there?
--No, he called in sick.
--Right.  How about Shapiro?
--This is his golf day.
--Well then,let  me talk to Shapiro.
 Another Afterthought: Back in the Pleistocene, the Louisville Yellow Pages (!), under "Attorneys" included three entries for "Leibson"--rather, one for Leibson, Leibson and Leibson; one for Leibson and Leibson; and one for Leibson.

Well, there were three Leibsons in that office: Oscar, Julius, and Charles.

Reminiscent of the old Marx Bros. routine about the law firm of Hungadunga, Hungadunga, Hungadunga, Hungdadunga & McCormick.
