Remember the cut outs on the back of the Fudge Town cookie boxes?
The name of that cookie reminds me of one of the lines that Mae West was able to sneak past the censors. In one of her films, this bit of humor was even more risque than usual, and it was also racist--but the fact that it made it past the censors is the most amazing thing of all.
Mae is on the phone with her Chinese Laundryman. She inquires about when he is coming over to pick up the dirty laundry. He answers, "Okay Miss West, I be at your house lickety-split". (I told you that it was racist!) Mae's answer was, "Never mind doing that, just come over and pick up the laundry". Amazing, from several perspectives.
