There is a wonderful Laurel and Hardy short film in which they clean the chimney of a ‘mad’ scientist. In this film the scientist has created a formula to reverse aging. Due to several mishaps Hardy ends up in a tank of water into which ‘all’ the age reversing formula has been accidentally dropped – only a small pipette is needed to work.
The tank foams and froths with Hardy splashing around. Eventually the tumult stops and out climbs a chimpanzee, Hardy has ‘age-reversed’ quite a long way. The chimpanzee sits on the edge of the tank and in response to Laurel’s question, the primate, in Hardy’s voice, says ‘I have nothing to say.’
Same with today’s blog.
