Have you ever heard Louis Nye's "Hipster at the Bank"?

He takes on the role of a jazz musician who is trying to get a loan from a
bank to get his horn out of hock and rejoin Jimmie Lunceford's orchestra,
refusing to accept the fact that Jimmie has been deceased.for some time

Sample:  Bank officer asks him his name.

"Lips Elliott"

"No, your real name?"


"Ok, Harold Elliott"

"No, Lips Harold"

"Lips Harold, that certainly is a strange name"

"Well man, like that's why I changed it to Elliott"

It is truly a classic.

Alcohol is necessary for a man so that now and then he can have a good
of himself, undisturbed by the facts
