Woody Allen I

When I was younger I had a friend named Tim Bean and one day Tim was selling a whole bunch of the "stuff" he had acquired over the years. One of the many wonders I bought that day was an album of Woody Allen's nightclub act from the 1960s. From time to time I'm going to share a favorite of mine from that album. This is the first:
When I was little boy, I wanted a dog desperately, and we had no money. I was a tiny kid, and my parents couldn't get me a dog, 'cause we just didn't have the money, so they got me, instead of a dog - they told me it was a dog - they got me an ant. And I didn't know any better, y'know, I thought it was a dog, I was a dumb kid. Called it 'Spot'. I trained it, y'know. Coming home late one night, Sheldon Finklestein tried to bully me. Spot was with me. And I said "Kill!", and Sheldon Finklestein stepped on my dog.
