My Mom (d. 1984) and Dad (d. 1963) used to mention a radio show of the pre-WW2 years in which people brought their craft pieces--a ship in a bottle, a quilt, whatever--and these were displayed to the studio audience and described (!) on the air by the host. This made the punchline of a joke about the patient whose doctor says to bring in a urine specimen but doesn't specify the quantity; the patient brings a filled a quart jar, the doctor siphons off a small amount and says "That's all I need." "What should I do with the rest?" "Go on Hobby Lobby!"
