Loon: The Lords of the 4th Dimension have delivered to us for the 3 question interview a show business celebrity, Jack Benny, who I am told was quite well known. Mr. Benny, what particular branch of show business were you a part of?

Loon: Were you perhaps musical?

Benny’s ghost: If you must know, I played the violin.

Loon: Oh, splendid. What brand of resin did you use?

Benny’s ghost: What brand of resin? Hmmmm, let me see. I’ll think of it in a minute. Resin, you say?

Loon: I’m sorry. That’s all the time we have. (walks out of room)

Benny’s ghost: Hmmmmm, resin. What brand? (keeps muttering about resin while he fades to nothingness)
