Earful of Cider – Speech


Good advice, Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra, what else do you need.

On the day when I left home to make my way in the world, my Daddy took me to one side. ‘Son,’ my Daddy says to me, ‘I am sorry I am not able to bankroll you to a very large start, but not having the necessary lettuce to get you rolling, instead I’m going to stake you to some very valuable advice.

One of these days in your travels, a guy is going to show you a brand-new deck of cards on which the seal is not yet broken. Then this guy is going to offer to bet you that he can make the jack of spades jump out of this brand-new deck of cards and squirt cider in your ear. But, son, you do not accept this bet, because as sure as you stand there, you’re going to wind up with an ear full of cider.

The clip is a little long, and the speech is towards the beginning. But watch the whole clip for the punchline. Ah words to live by.

  1. The payoff for the joke is well worth the wait:

    “Daddy, I got cider in my ear….”

  2. Sorry to bother you, but I presume there’s a link to the movie clip and I can’t find it.

Witty observation, disparaging remark, question for A.A., well this is your chance.
