Because Claude obeyed his Mommy and Daddy, his fairy godmother granted his wish.
She brought his favorite doll, Mr. Fleener, to life.
There was one condition though:
“He must never play ‘My Gal’s A Corker’, lest he die.”
“Never refer to Shakespeare, and he won’t play it.”
All went well for weeks at a time. Mr. Fleener mostly played Big Band era standards and show tunes.
One night Mommy and Daddy went to visit family and left Claude with a baby sitter.
“Oh No!!” he gasped. “Not Rhoda the English major!!”
From afar they heard: “My Gal’s a Cooorker”!!!
