Column "Hash and Re-Hash"
Column "Hash and Re-Hash"
In "Hash and Re-hash," a column often printed in The Richmond Collegian, the writers share a series of humorous stories, many based on word play, puns, and one-line jokes, with the target of jokes often being black people. This column is credited to "Two 'Shamrocks' Phil Oden--Bill Carter." One piece recounts a black woman in court being told to pull her skirt down by the judge, the judge at one point calling the woman "nigger." The judge fines the woman for "contempt of court," and the woman explains the fine in dialect, stating "He said he's gonna fine me ten dollars for temptin' de court." The punchline of this joke combines reliance on "negro dialect" to misinterpret legal language, and on the sexual implications of the woman's skirt riding up. Several pieces later, there is a dialogue between a presumabely white woman and a black woman identified by her speech being in dialect writing. Mrs. Whisthebaum inquires of Dinah where she had been, Dinah replies "Ah was blackberrying, Mis' Whisbum." Mrs. Whisthebaum asks "You were blackberrying?" Dinah replies, "Yessum, it was mah Cousin Joe's funeral."
