Description: 10 x 8 inches, no place, no date, circa 1934 -- a vintage photo of a seated Penner wearing a hat and with an unlit cigar between his teeth. He is holding a live white duck in his lap with its head resting on Penner's shoulder. Inscribed on the left side: "To Florence Monett Sincerely Joe Penner." Gently warped, but still in very good condition.

Comments: Joe Penner was a major craze in Vaudeville during the Depression years of 1933 and 1934. He later parlayed his famous one-liner, "Wanna buy a duck?" into a successful radio career. In the 1930s, his radio show premiered the voice of a young Mel Blanc, whose character, Egghead, was partly based on Penner and was the forerunner of Blanc's legendary character Elmer Fudd.

Dear Folks, It's good to see you on the World's Book Map. To Mr. Cohen and the member of his family I owe a great thank you for all the lessons "how to hold back straight". To all the members of the stuff -- a great thank you for help and assistance in all periods of a busy days and weekends. And to the good young Argosy, a great thank you for being there back in the 1970's & 1980! - V. Kharets
