This is the internet, Bikeforums.net. I work here... I carry a badge
It was Saturday June 4. It was humid, but with a light lake breeze in Chitown. We were working bunko.... they were lookin' for a party.
The story you are about to see is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.
(A Very Serious) Johnny Carson: There's been a robbery.
(A stone faced) Jack Webb: Yes sir! What was it?
Johnny Carson: My clappers!
Jack Webb: Your clappers?
Johnny Carson: Yeah you know those things inside a bell that makes them clang.
Jack Webb: The clangers?
Johnny Carson: That's right! We call them the clappers in the business.
Jack Webb: A clapper caper.
Johnny Carson: What's that?
Jack Webb: Nothing sir! Now can I have the facts? What kinds of clappers were stolen on this clapper caper?
Johnny Carson: They were copper clappers!
Jack Webb: And where were they kept?
Johnny Carson: In the closet!
Jack Webb: (Ugh! Ugh! ) Do you have any ideas who might have taken your copper clappers from the closet?
Johnny Carson: Well theirs is once I fired a man and he swore he'd get even!
Jack Webb: What was his name?
Johnny Carson: Claude Cooper!
Jack Webb: You think then?
Johnny Carson: That's right! I think Claude Cooper copped my copper Clapper kept in a closet.
Jack Webb: You know where this Claude Cooper is from?
Johnny Carson: Yeap! Cleveland.
Jack Webb: That figures!
Johnny Carson: What makes it worse is that they were clean!
Jack Webb: Clean copper clappers? Why do you think that Claude Cooper would cop your clean copper clappers kept in your closet?
Johnny Carson: Only one reason!
Jack Webb: What's that?
Johnny Carson: He's a kleptomaniac.
Jack Webb: Who first discovered the copper clappers were copped?
Johnny Carson: My cleaning woman Clara Clifford!
(Smirking) Jack Webb: That figures! Now let me see if I got the facts straight here? Cleaning woman Clara Clifford discovered your clean copper clappers kept in a closet were copped by Claude Cooper a kleptomaniac from Cleveland. Now is that about it?
(Smirking) Johnny Carson: One more thing. If I ever catch kleptomaniac Claude Cooper from Cleveland who copped my clean copper clappers from the closet….
Jack Webb: YES! Johnny Carson: I'll clobber him!
