Mr. Bunion: The only thing on earth that will relieve me of this suffering is plain rat poison, and, I think I'll consume a box of it and end all---
/
Deliveryman: I'm looking for a man by the name of Bunion!
Mr. Bunion: Bunion? Eh! That's my name! Yes!
/
Deliveryman [FATE]: It's a package for you, sir, if you're the Bunion.
Mr. Bunion: Oh! I'm the Bunion there is only one that's me!
/
Mr. Bunion: I'll bet its a lemon or an onion or some sort of old junk, --no! It's an umbrella!
/
Mr. Bunion: Huh! It's an umbrella and a good strong one too

a green one, well! That isn't
/
Mr. Bunion: bad! I donna if it is a genuine affair or just a joke of some kind
/
Mr. Bunion: No, sir! It's not a joke. It's a good strong shade stick-- [HOPE]
