Hair Today? Guida Tomorrow!

My thanks to long-time Last Kiss fan Jim Guida for writing this gag. Jim, though, doesn’t claim sole credit for the gag. As Jim puts it:

“…the ‘nose hair’ joke was sort of stolen from an episode of FRIENDS, when Jennifer Aniston is looking at her Dad, as he lies in a hospital bed, and says, ‘Well, I see the nose and ear trimmer I got you was a waste of money.’ ”

Oh, Jim! Professional humorists don’t steal jokes. They borrow and re-interpret them. So, congratulations. You’re now a professional!

Art by Dick Giordano from Secrets of Young Brides #43, July 1964.

 

 

Transcript:

SCENE: A woman lying face up on the grass reaches up to a man who is looking (tenderly?) at her.

MAN: You know, darling, that nose hair trimmer wasn’t a joke gift.

WOMAN: Oh, my god! I was hoping if I closed my eyes, he would think I was dead and just go away.
