Transcription

[BANK] Mr. Bunion: I hate to see a run on a bank!!! It's awl! Once a man-
/
Mr. Bunion: becomes suspicious of a bank's condition. He flies to it to
/
Mr. Bunion: withdraw his money! While I really have no fear, I'll
/
Mr. Bunion: not take a chance on losing the small bundle I have in this bank, so I'll join the bunch!
/
Mr. Bunion: What I have is no great pile. Still, if I should lose it I should feel it considerably. Conscious all the time that I wasn't losing much.
/
Mr. Bunion: Now! You see? All this panic was for nothing! The bank is paying all comers! Well, its better to be on the safe side! A person me--
/
Mr. Bunion: What? Three o'clock and I can't get my money until tomorrow? Well! I'll be dumbed! [BANK CLOSED Until Tomorrow]
/
Mr. Bunion: Just my luck after standing in line all this time I had to be the first one to face the closed window. Oh, shucks! [BANK CLOSED Until Tomorrow]
