Ha Ha Ha (ukulele abuse)

The Sydney Sunday Times (which mercifully folded in 1930), pubished this little treat on the 16th of October, 1927:

“The ukulele is a handy musical instrument on the river”, says a writer. It is an excellent plan to keep one in the bottom of the boat to use, club like, on anyone playing one in another boat”

How did they come up with such witty lines before day-time television?
