Extensive tests were done in bars and nightclubs. Out of 100 women only 3 correctly identified the toupée, and only one woman thought it was a beaver making love to the man's head.

"You know, being a comedian's hard when the unwashed masses take everything out of context and look for something to be offended by. So either go to the Schlock Comedian's School or become a mortician. Either way your clientele are a bunch of stiffs!"


"Thank you."
