Baseball season is approaching fast, so here’s a little inspiration to start out your week in a less-than-stressful manner.

This sketch was first performed in 1937, and can still catch you off-guard with its simple but brilliant wordplay. It was named “Best Comedy Sketch of the 20th Century” by Time magazine in its 1999 retrospective.

This version was filmed in 1953.
