[Prof. Bunkem. P.G. World's Greatest Mind Reader!]
Mr. Bunion: Ah! There's where I'll go for a change I've never seen one of those mind-reader's yep! I'll go in and see that fellow! Um!
/
Prof. Bunkem: Will someone step up here upon the flatworm, please, as a subject?
Mr. Bunion: I'll go up and let him operate on me! I'll see if he can read my mind!
/
Prof. Bunkem:
That's it! Come foreword! Do not be afraid, sir! Come up!
Mr. Bunion: If no one else will be subject for you I"ll volunteer!
/
Prof. Bunkem: Yes, Come up, sir! You'll make a splendid subject! I shall endeavor to find an object that you will think of--
Mr. Bunion: Do I come right up?
/
Prof. Bunkem: Mr. Bunion has his mind set on an object in this room. Being blindfolded I shall lead him to the object he is thinking of, with your kind attention!
/
Prof. Bunkem: Placing my left hand on his forehead. His left hand in my right we shall proceed!
Mr. Bunion: It will be no effort for me to concentrate my mind sir!
/
Prof. Bunkem: You must not let your wind wander but keep it firmly upon the object! Sir!
Mr. Bunion: Gracious! I couldn't think of anything else if I tired to! My mind is on it, sir!
/
Mr. Bunion: Hum! THis fellow is surely a mind reader!
Prof. Bunkem: Oh. Eh. Ah. Here it is! You were thinking of this article right here!
