A Talking Grandfather’s Clock (Sep, 1930)

A Talking Grandfather’s Clock

A GRANDFATHER clock that has gone modern with a vengeance, which” chimes and talks the hours, reminds you that it is eight o’clock — time to go to school, picks up broadcast music, plays the latest record hits—-which in fact seems to have everything but a soul, has recently been built by Joseph Pinto. The clock contains the usual clock machinery, a loud speaker, a radio receiving set, phonograph and records.

    Hmmm. Just the thing for an heirloom to leave the family.

    Clock: HA HA HA! HA HA
    Clock: Wake up! You are lazy and worthless!
    Clock: HA HA! And powerless to stop me!
    Clock: You think I go away? But I’m still here! HA HA
    Clock: You want peace and quiet? TOO BAD! HA HA
    Clock: I’ll never let you sleep again! HA HA
    Clock: …Not broken. HA HA HA! HA HA HA!
