Transcription: What's the idea of paintin' everything all funny colors - gosh! Y'can't see 'em what's it all about. Oh this is the camouflage -- a new war trick -- it makes things invisible to the every. Could y'give me an order of it and make me invisible? Sure. Much obliged. There y'are y'look quite outa sight. Seen anything of a bum with a straw hat and a red nose and check trousers?? Wanted for tapping a safe and last seen coming this way?? G'bye.
