Elephant Hors d’oeurves Cartoon

[Rooting through that box from the liquor store where I toss my writings and doodles, I found a bunch of cartoon sketches from 30 years ago.]

This one shows two guys with straw hats and canes—a vaudeville act. The first guys says “Say, Ralph, what’s covered with Philadelphia cream cheese, weighs 4000 pounds and sits on a Ritz?” The second guy answers “Well, Bert, I’d figure that to be one of those elephant hors d’oeurves, I betcha.”
