At Long Last, Hu

by Jim Siergey

Bud Abbott befuddled poor Lou
With bit about first baseman Who.
.       What once was absurd
.       Today has occurred
“Hey, Abbott! On first base is Hu!”


For the picture that Abbott & Costello never lived to see, as well as a great modern retelling of their classic routine, check out this post by PeteyHendrix at Red Reporter.

At Long Last, Hu: 3 Comments

  1. Hilary Barta wrote,

    Once on base, then a new target beckoned.
    From his face, they all knew what he reckoned.
    But he flew to the bag
    And eluded the tag
    It’s amazing, but Hu was on second.
