Dear Dick Affair by
Dear Dick: I am a singer in a night club. When I accidentally touched the metal on the microphone stand, it shocked me and I screamed and jumped ... tearing my dress, which wasn’t part of the act. The audience was amused ... but I am now jobless. — DEPRESSED
DEAR DEPRESSED: Talk to your boss again and try to make him understand it was an unfortunate accident. Keep singing. We don’t make rash decisions at PUFF’S APPLIANCE CENTER. Our famous lines of name brand appliances were selected with care, so that you an have appliances to match your home decor and your budget — DICK
