This classic skit featuring classic comedic duo, Abbott And Costello!
Tsk tsk Mr. Chairman. Twenty-eight vacuums a week. That?s a lot of vacuums to sell. And you only have seven salesmen?<br> Certainly.<br> That means they got to sell thirteen vacuums a piece.<br> You?re right. Thirteen vacuum cleaners a piece?<br> Yes, sir.<br> What are you talking about? Seven times thirteen is not twenty-eight.<br> Yes it is.<br> Seven times four is twenty-eight.<br> Mr. Chairman, seven times thirteen is twenty-eight.<br> Seven times four is twenty-eight! Did you ever go to school, stupid?<br> Yes, sir. And I?d come out the same way.<br> Come here a minute.<br> You claim that seven goes in to twenty-eight thirteen times?<br> That?s right.<br> Go ahead prove it. Prove it. Go ahead. Go ahead. Go ahead.<br> Alright.<br> There?s the board. Well go ahead. Go ahead.<br> Alright, chairman. I?m gonna prove it. Now you got seven salesmen.<br> That?s right.<br> Okay. There?s a seven.<br> Where is it?<br> Right there.<br> Alright.<br> Now, you got twenty-eight vacuums a week you got to sell.<br> That?s right.<br> I?m gonna divide. There?s your twenty-eight vacuums.<br> Now wait a minute. You claim that seven goes into twenty-eight thirteen times?<br> That?s right.<br> Show me.<br> Seven into two? Seven won?t go into two.<br> Certainly not.<br> So, I got to take the two from there and put it down here.<br> Put it down there?<br> Yeah, I?m gonna use that after a while. That?s a cute little two.<br> Yeah.<br> Now seven to eight?<br> One.<br> Now, I?m gonna carry the seven from here and put it under the eight. Seven from eight? One. A minute ago, I didn?t use that little two.<br> What are you gonna do?<br> I?m gotta use that two now. I?m gonna take it from there. And I?m gonna put it right there.<br> Alright.<br> Now, seven into twenty-one.<br> Three times.<br> That?s correct. Seven into twenty-eight, thirteen.<br> Aww no, no, no, no. Nothing of the kind. What kind of figures are these? Just a minute.<br> It?s gotta come out right.<br> We?ll multiply these. Go ahead<br> Multiply it?<br> Put down thirteen.<br> Okay. Thirteen.<br> That?s right. Then seven salesmen. Put that down.<br> Seven salesmen.<br> You claim that seven times thirteen amounts to what?<br> Twenty-eight.<br> Prove that.<br> Seven time three?<br> Twenty-one.<br> Seven times One?<br> Seven.<br> Seven and one?<br> Eight.<br> And two.
