Talking Who's on first?

Having just read the thread on Spoonerisms and watched the video that Rusty posted, I thought you all might like this classic sketch by Abbot & Costello. Enjoy.

Who's on first?

As a kid I used to love those guys.

And this routine became understandable after I came to the US.

I loved it!

Thanks Tomísimo.

I need to improve my listening skills... I had to play it several times to understand the mysteries of who/what/I-don't-know...

Thanks for sharing!

You're welcome. Here are a few hints for others who may want them:

who — first base
what — second base
I don't know — third base
why — left field
tomorrow — pitcher
today — catcher
I don't care — shortstop

Totally enjoyable. Is this also considered "slapstick" comedy?

Sometimes there are very old, old programs on TV that I love to watch and I think WC Fields was a big user of spoonerisms, don't you think?

Very nice.
