Transcription

Mr. Bunion: I believe I'll try that for a change. Ah! Ha! [ Sign: Lay aside Dull Care! Get Rich Quick! Climb to the top of this mountain to ease and splendor. All you need is grit! Don't miss this opportunity.]
/
Mr. Bunion: I'll leave you here a while, old friend. I may never come back again.
/
Mr. Bunion: I hope so, at least. I've plenty of grit and it looks easy. Well, here goes!
/
Mr. Bunion: It's awful slippery but it isn't far and I am sure I can make it.
/
Mr. Bunion: Just be cautious thats all and take it easy. I'm doing fine. I'll get there.
/
[Splendor Ave] Mr. Bunion: Ah! There's the place I have been looking for. Now if I am very careful I'll be there soon. I mustn't slip--
/
Mr. Bunion: Oh! Oh! Oh! I've slipped! I must catch myself oh!--
/
Mr. Bunion: I suppose I ought to try it again but I won't. No, this is enough for for for me!
