Who’s On First

During a meeting today, a random series of comments led to someone mentioning the classic Abbot and Costello routine: Who’s On First?. A few of us were familiar with it, a few were not.

I threw out the phrase “I Don’t Know” in the hopes that someone would respond with “Third Base,” but sadly no one did. I tried to set my team mates up with an easy spike, but they just let that volleyball drop into the sand.

It’s an old routine, even by modern comedy standards. And I feel even older knowing this, while younger coworkers don’t. But I decided to re-watch it, and it’s still loads of fun.
