Retro Prof makes his first deduction, "As was observed by a member of the audience, you can rule out this being a primitive arti-fact. Primitive cultures are far too sophisticated to produce something as crude as," Retro Prof hesitates, "This,"
The jokester in the audience nods to the people around him, in full agreement with the Retro Prof’s seci onding of his initial analysis.
"As a matter of fact," Retro Prof figures, "In all my travels around the world, I haven’t come accross any culture that would produce a get-up like this one."
"My figurins’ exactly," the jokester seconds the Retro Prof.
Retro Prof raises an eyebrow, "Unless, of course this arti-fact is a form of folk-art."
"Wait a second there,’ the jokester protests, "I listen to folksy-music all the time, and there is no need to blame that, thing, on them."
"My mistatement," Retro Prof concedes, "As I used the term folk-art here, I was meaning to define this as an attempt by someone to produce an object with intrinsic value by using materials on hand."
"I don’t know about intrinsic, or close-out aisle at Handy Hank’s," the jokester speaks up, "But I can get your point there. It sure can’t be any thing useful."
