Flea string on ukulele is broken…

The following report appeared in the Winona Republican-Herald, May 18, 1939:

A music store owner told this story… A small boy walked into his shop and said, ‘I want to buy a flea string for my ukulele.’ When the proprietor suggested he meant a “D” string, the boy replied: ‘No, I don’t. When my teacher tunes my ukulele, he sings ‘My-dog-has-fleas’ and it’s the flea string that is broken.’

And so it was.
