Undercover Caper. A burly lineman for a professional football team often stayed out late, despite the club's curfew. He would pile things under his blankets, making it appear he was in bed.
At one hotel, however, he couldn't find enough things to stuff the bed with. So he stuck a floor lamp under the covers and departed. When a suspicious coach peeked in at i a.m. and snapped on the light switch, the
bed lit up. —Raymond Schucsslcr in Modern Maturity
