Chapter 28: Be a Joke unto Yourself
The little man said, “I vant to hact. Giff me a chance.”
Finally the director gave in. “Get up on stage and try it.”
The little man stepped out onto the stage. Somehow he looked much taller and full of energy. He began to speak with a booming voice and the perfect king’s English, “To be or not to be..”
When he was finished, there was a hush. Everyone was amazed. The director said, “That’s unbelievable.”
The other actors said, “That’s wonderful.”
The little Jew just shrugged his shoulders and said, “Dat’s hacting!”
Enough for today.
