Bud: You know, strange as it may seem, they give baseball players peculiar names nowadays. On the St Louis team, we have Who's on first, What's on second and I don't know is on third.

Lou: That's what I want to find out, I want you to tell me the names of the fellows on the St Louis team.

Bud: I'm telling you. Who's on first, what's on second, I don't know is on third!

Lou: You know the fellow's names?

Bud: Yes

Lou: Well then, whose playing first?

Bud: Yes.

Lou: I mean the fellow's name on first base.

Bud: Oh, no, no. What is on second base

Lou: I'm not asking you whose on second

Lou: When you pay off the first baseman every month, who gets the money?

Bud: Certainly.

Lou: Who gets the money?

Bud: Every dollar of it

Lou: When you give the guy the money, who gets it?

Bud: Yes. He's entitled to it. Sometimes his wife comes down and collects it.

Lou: Whose wife?

Bud: Yes.

Lou: Look, when you give the guy a receipt, how does he sign it?

Bud: Who

Lou: The guy you give the money too

Bud: Who. That's how he signs it

Lou: I would like to play for St Louis someday

Bud: Well, I might arrange that

Lou: I would like to catch. Now Tomorrow's pitching on the team, and I'm catching

Bud: OK

Lou: Tomorrow throws the ball, and the guy gets up and bunts the ball

Bud: yes

Lou: So when he bunts the ball, me being a good catcher, I want to throw the guy out at first base. So I pick up the ball and I throw it to Who?

Bud: Now, that's the first thing you've said right!

Lou: I don't even know what I'm talking about!

Bud: Well, that's all you have to do

Lou: I throw it to first base

Bud: Yes

Lou: Now who's got it?

Bud: Naturally

Bud: Naturally

Lou: So I throw the ball to who?

Bud: Naturally

Lou: Same as you! Same as you!

Bud: You throw the ball to who, Who gets it.

Lou: He'd better get it!

Bud: That's it. All right now, don't get excited. Take it easy

Lou (in a right state now): Now I throw the ball to first base, whoever it is grabs the ball, so the guy runs to second.

Bud: Uh-huh.

Lou: Who picks up the ball and throws it to what. What throws it to I don't know. I don't know throws it back to tomorrow. Triple play!

Bud: Could be

Lou: Another guy gets up, and it's a long fly-ball to Because. Why? I don't know, he's on third and I don't give a darn

Yes, I know it's only idle curiosity from me, because I'm obviously not a contender.

But as somebody needs to bump this back up the page (so that you multiple-answer good guys know which of you won), I volunteer to be the person who says:


(And if it gets me a bad name, tough!)
