SCRIPT

In the 1960s and 70s, there was a very popular baseball player named Shigeo Nagashima. His nickname was Mister. Mister was known for his carelessness.

Nagashima: Where is it? Where is it?
Man:    Mister, what are you looking for?
Nagashima: I can’t find one of my stockings.
Man:    Everybody, Mister can’t find one of his stockings. Please help him look for it.

A few minutes later

Nagashima: You don’t have to look for it anymore. I was wearing both stockings on my right leg.
