Though Miggles may call it a prick, It's really an optical trick. Not what you'd expect It stands up erect And figures in comedy schtick.

Chandu the Magician (William Cameron Menzies, Marcel Varnel; 1932): Chandu hypnotizes alcoholic Miggles (Herbert Mundin), so that every time he drinks, he sees this mini-version of himself who will take him to task for it. Donald Benson says of the mini-Miggles, "It's pre-code if you view it as a metaphor."
