"I can't stand Jack Benny because..." Contest 1945

To celebrate Jack Benny 's 39th Birthday again today, here is Carrol P Craig Sr's winning entry from the 1945 "I Can't Stand Jack Benny Because..."  contest: "I Can't Stand Jack Benny Because... He fills the air with boasts and brags,  And obsolete obnoxious gags.  The way he plays his violin  is music's most obnoxious sin.  His cowardice alone, indeed,  is matched by his obnoxious greed.  And all the things that he portrays  Show up my own obnoxious ways.  " Happy Birthday  Jack Benny !
