The Evening Independent (8 November 1938):

Gracie Allen, who is learning to play a ukelele for a scene in “Honolulu,” explains the ease in learning to play the instrument. “All you have to do,” says Gracie, “is to scratch your tummy for a while and then put a ukelele there.”

I particularly like that Gracie Allen one because my wife and I have been talking about taking tap dance lessons later on this spring when we get back to Iowa from PR. It seems like a fun way to get some exercise. So ukuleles and tap dancing. Very inspirational. :D
