Ben Dover

Decker wasn't the brightest guy in the world, and his coworkers were continually ribbing him at the factory. One in particular, Gus, would greet him each morning and precipitate this exchange:

"Say, Decker, you seen Ben?"

"Ben, who?"

"Ben' down and kiss my ass!"

Tired of falling for the same joke day after day, Decker confided in his more worldly brother, who said, "Listen. Next time you see this guy, ask him if he's seen Eileen. He'll ask, 'Eileen who?' and you say, 'I lean over and you kiss my ass!'"

Memorizing his lines, Decker went to the work early to wait for Gus. As soon as the bully arrived, Decker ran over.

"Hey Gus, you seen Eileen?"

"No," Gus answered, "She ran off with Ben."

Decker frowned. "Ben who?"
