070-110919 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - Can You Top This?

Can You Top This? was a joke show in which listeners sent in jokes, and the three resident comics tried to top those jokes. 

It ran from 1940 to 1954, and it was so popular that it spawned two books of jokes from the show, and it attracted upwards of 3,000 letters per week at the height of its popularity.

The jokemasters were Senator Edward Ford (not a real senator, but the creator and owner of the show), Harry Hirshfield, a popular cartoonist of the day, and ex-vaudevillian Joe Laurie, Jr. 

This episode was originally heard on December 5, 1947.
