Soda Syphon Joke

Ooh la la! This chap becomes a little too engrossed in his French magazine, and ends up taking a cold shower

Comedy 1900 1 mins Silent


A classic music-hall gag blown up for the big screen so we can see this chap's soggy comeuppance all the better. When a Victorian gentleman becomes distracted by pictures of Parisian floozies in his magazine, he loses track of what he is doing with his hands, and the soda siphon that was once blocked, now fires freely ... which leads to a messy end. The joy of this 'facial' skit is not just in the sticky ending, but the array of funny faces the actor pulls on the way.
