Cueless! (April 29)

There's this stage play in which the first act is about a cancelled lunar mission, and in the second, an actor has a number of lines to deliver in the role of a scam artist named Kohl. 

The first act comes off ok, but as Act II begins, the stage hand who is supposed to hold up the cue cards is not around, and nobody knows where he is. 

The actor who plays the scam artist is upset,and grumbles: "We can rescind a missile to the moon, but we can't find a cuer for the con-man Kohl!"
