Recently I was visiting My Uncle Fossill up in Podunk Tennessee, I was anxious to show off my newly acquired skill of Ventriloquism,now for those of you that might not know just what a ventriloquist does , well it is the art of "Throwing" your voice by not moving your lips,so that the "dummy" appears to be speaking to you and you and he (the dummy) appear to be having a conversation.
Anyway,I was anticipating having an entertaining evening and flabergasting my Uncle Fossill and Aunt Flossie Mae with my ventriloquistic skill that I was very proud of.
I began by having the "dummy" make fun of what Uncle Fossill was wearing,then I had the dummy laugh at what Uncle Fossill looked like and Aunt Flossie Mae's bonnet.I was having the time of my life,thinking that both Uncle Fossill and Aunt Flossie Mae were really enjoying the show.But all of a sudden Uncle Fossill stands up and shouts, Hay! now thats enough! yew cant be adoin thet! I wont stand fer it you hear me!
I of course, am very perplexed and I stammer to Uncle Fossill how sorry I was to embarrass Him! Uncle Fossill looks at me and replies "Boy,I aint a talkin to yew! Ima talking to to thet little idjit ya got a sitting on yo're knee!
