    Yes, we're quite classy here in the fly-over states.

    I heard it when I was in grade 3 where it made little sense; women don't have balls--8 year olds might not have been getting laid at that time, but we knew our equipment.

    I remember the joke, too. Never made sense, but what the hell......

    I was given Gilbert's book as a gift a while ago. It is the WORST WRITTEN book I've ever read. Jumps from topic to topic, from first to third person, all jumbled up, etc.

    I guess he wrote it like he talks, but where the hell was the editing? Must have saved $100 and canned the editor.

    Loved when Gilbert appeared on the Stern show back when it was good, but the book is an abortion.....

    Someone corrected him on Penn's podcast. The ACTUAL vaudeville sketch has one vendor shouting "Rubber Balloons!" and the other vendor shouting "Liquor!".

    If you want a copy, the hardcover book is on Amazon for one dollar and 6 cents and ships for free, as pointed out by someone in another thread. For that price I bought. Gotta be worth that, huh? At least to balance out an uneven table.

    It makes sense that audiences remembered "rubber balls" instead of "rubber balloons", killing the joke. It does NOT make much sense that people created "rubber buns".
