Just to remind you that our subject currently (we’ll no doubt veer off at unusal angles sometimes) is baldness.
My first move is to look up ‘bald’ in the Penguin Slang Dictionary.
In category 117.10 we find that a slang term for baldness is ‘chrome dome,’ which I rather like.
This reminds me of a best man speech in which the BM made a joke about the (balding) Groom being ‘a solar powered eating machine, which I thought was rather good one.
In the Slang Dictionary under ‘hair’, we find ‘hair of the dog,’ which might well be useful.
And that’s it. The Slang Dictionary has given us two items which may well go into the final 7 minutes and has reminded me of another. Remembering and using someone else's joke is valid way of doing things, as long a the vast majority of your set is original.
I've known top professional comedians use each other's gags sometimes. If it's OK for them, it must be OK for you. But tailor them to your style and content and, as I say, make up most of your gags... or buy them on the basis that the provider will sell them to no-one else.
So let’s add these to our stockpile of useful material.
The following is the idea stockpile so far.
