History of Cozy:
A Chinese man has the name Isadore Schwartz. How could that be? Well, said the man, he was on Ellis Island and the officers asked the fellow in front of him for his name, which was Isadore Schwartz. When they asked the Chinese man for his name, he said "Sam Ting."
Get it? Or the man who went into an Italian restaurant and ordered chicken in the basket. Every leg was broken.
