Puppets May Now Smoke (Feb, 1940)

Finally, science accomplishes something important!

Puppets May Now Smoke

    That’s actually pretty clever.

    Plus it’s real good news for puppets. Ever heard of a puppet getting lung cancer?

    If this had caught on, would Jeff Dunham be doing Walter with a deep hacking smoker’s cough by now?
