Dan “Bloody Stumps” Gomiller Heads to Vaudeville

He went to Vaudeville, in state unknown*.  Performed songs like “Horseshoes! What?” and comedy routines like “The Old Banana,” which he learned performing in the coalmines in his old town of Greypoke, Idaho.  He would eventually become famous for “Where’s the Telephone, Mrs. Graham?” but was eventually told not to speak of this in public, after contracting with Thomas Edison, while Edison tried to develop a “superior” telephone.

*The state is believed to be Wyoming, which had a glut of coalmines and had not yet been admitted to the Union.
