Puns were a very popular part of humor at that time. I often resort to them myself. (No kidding?)
I wish I could have the whole routine. Over forty years ago, a very good friend of mine dubbed a bunch of records, comedy songs, and clips from early radio broadcasts onto a couple audio cassettes in an effort to get a feeling for early radio (I still cherish the tape I have). However, he did not always record the entire piece that he used. On that tape, I have part of a comedy routine with a performer who would have been on stage (for Vaudeville) and his partner who would have been in the audience acting as a heckler. The routines have several puns in them, including having had "puns and coffee" for breakfast. I sort of used that one in another thread a couple days ago. I don't even know who the performers were in that bit.
I guess Ford wasn't a big fan of puns.
Nice piece! Thank you Justin H.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

We should re-run that contest today. I'll donate $10 prize money.

Wasn't it about that time Ford stopped advertising since they couldn't keep up with demand anyway, only local dealers kept on advertising until sales started to slow down in the mid 20's.

So I guess the turnout from this contest was much too punny for Ford..

Would be really interesting to read some of the actual contest entries. Also it would be interesting to know what the winning ads were.

just sayin'

Faster than a Horse,
Cheaper than a Cord;
Gets You There of Course,
In the Luxury of a Ford.

I can't help myself from posting this pun from the internets:

------
An investment opportunity!

Thought you might want to consider getting on board early.

A British engineer just started his own business in Afghanistan.

He's making land mines that look like prayer mats.

It's doing well.

He says prophets are going through the roof

Object, and I'll take it down.

I hope the "pun"ishment doesn't get banned from the Forum like is apparently was from the Ford factory. Some of us can't help it. I think it is the vanadium running through our veins.
