Thin Line


Dialing for Dollar$: For this JIST SO STORY, I've set the ol' Chronobrator for the year 1876. Our destination is the laboratory of that renowned scientist, Alexander Graham Bell. We're going to witness a major historical event  THE FIRST TELEPHONE CONTACT! Alexander Graham Bell is sitting at his desk. A young man stands in front of the desk, opposite Mr. Bell. Bell says, ''I'm sorry, Watson. I just can't afford an assistant right now.''
Bell continues, ''A few years back, I invested heavily in paper. I'd intended to publish phone directories. But now, I've yet to get my invention to work, and all that paper just sets yellowing in the warehouse, so...'' Watson interjects, ''Well, Mister Bell, I know how you can put those yellow pages to good use. And I'm sure I can help you make your telephone a working reality!''
Watson points down at the desktop on which rests a prototype telephone, some tools, and miscellaneous other stuff. ''May I?'' Watson asks. Bell falters, ''Uh... er... well...'' Watson has picked up a hammer from the desktop and now strikes Bell's prototype telephone with a forceful WHACK!
