(For those who might be of more recent vintage, the reference to "Every Saturday evening, I have to bring out the mag" is to the Saturday Evening Post magazine. It had been founded in 1728 under the name , The Pennsylvania Gazette. Benjamin Franklin too it over the next year. With a short hiatus in 1800, the publication officially became the Saturday Evening Post in 1821. It's still published today, though no longer weekly.)
Okay, now back to the comedy.
