Make your hand into a singing old lady (1800’s)


Ok, so they didn't have TV or video games in the 1800's so they needed to think of other ways to entertain themselves. I think if I saw a grown man doing this I would think he was a little "off". Could be fun for the kids though....

The experiment shown in the illustration is bound to find favor with grown-up people as well as with young folks.

All you have to do is to paint two eyes, and underneath them a nose, on the knuckles of your index and third finger, as shown in the lower part of the illustration.

The thumb pressed against the index finger and moved up and down will represent a toothless mouth.

The knuckle of the index finger forms the nose, above it are the eyes.

By draping the face with a towel we have the features of an old woman, especially effective when the light is not very bright.

After a little practice you will succeed in moving the thumb (representing the lower lip and chin) up and down, while you sing a song in a nasal voice, or carry on a conversation with the audience in the voice of an old woman.

I think you should do this at work on Monday - it'd be one heck of a way to start the week! (and get dismissed for lunacy!) LOL
