Lost Bouquet

Leading lady gets short-changed onstage


A group of extras in the play were talking backstage at the end of the performance.

“What’s the matter with our leading lady?” one actress asked. “She seems really mad about something.”

“Oh, she’s upset because she only received nine bouquets of flowers over the footlights,” another actress replied.

“Nine!” exclaimed the first actress. “That’s pretty good, isn’t it?”

“Yes,” the other actress replied, “but she paid for 10.”
