Laughin Woman

For many reasons Soap Operas get made fun of a lot -- they are an easy target for crying out loud. In fact "Crying Out Loud" is one of the reasons they are an easy target!

Bob & RayBut being easy humor doesn't make it less funny! In this collection of Soap Opera Send-ups, Bob and Ray made a living making fun of the medium that made them famous. One of their greatest spoofs was "Mary Backstage, Noble Wife". Actually the spoof quickly became better known than the soap that inspired it.

Of course they were too good of a target for Fred Allen not to take a shot at; even if he couldn'ttrick Marlene Dietrich into giving hima kiss with the daily serial script he"found"on the studio floor. And the troops of WWII were very happy to hearFred Allen and Jack Benny having fun with the soaps on Command Performance.

Next time you have to face a sink full of suds dirtyand dishes, remember that it's no reason to cry. 1940s House WivesInstead turn on this collection of The Soapler:Soap Opera Satire, Spoofs and Silliness, and laugh your afternoon away!
