Loved the jokes and novelties. I remember back in the late 1950s when I was about 7 or 8, we used to go to St. Petersburg Florida to visit friends and I found my first magic shop. I bought a little box that said "Hear The Sound of Your Own Voice" on it with two buttons. You would push the black button to record, the push the red button to listen...except all the red button did was cause pain because there was a small hole in the button hiding a needle so when you pushed it, it would puncture your thumb and cause blood to flow. Can you imagine trying to sell that today? Anyway, I immediately brought it home and tried it on my Mom which I thought was extremely funny for about the first two seconds...it wasn't that funny afterward...never saw it again.
