Subject: Overweening expressions
Sometime in the late 40s I saw a sign behind a shoeshine
stand in Stroudsburg PA that read something like this:
aritistically lubricated and illuminated
with ambidextrous facility
for the infinitesimal remuneration
of 25 cents.
Below it was another sign:
10 cents ain't my price no more.
My back is aching and my knees are sore.
15 cents is now my price.
Gimme two bits and I'll do it twice.
Shine, boy, shine.
