Bob and Ray’s “World’s Oldest Lady Caddy” is one of the first Bob and Ray routines I ever heard. My son can still break me up laughing by simply saying “With increased leisure time…” It’s kind of the catchall sociological explanation for everything.

Bob and Ray were generally gentle in their humorous swipes at American culture and media, but probably never was their satire more cutting and Swiftian than in this routine, The Great Lakes Paperclip Company.

The great Bob & Ray, with one of their classic bits, Mr. Science. It was a merciless parody of a popular educational television show of the 1950s that viewers of a certain age may remember, Watch Mr. Wizard with Don Herbert. Mayhem, as the saying goes, ensues.
