Is this from a novelty catalog from 1880 to 1930?
In the novelty business, cheap "musical" instruments were made with pull out
multi folded paper devices, shaped like fans, flags etc. perhaps this is
what they are referring to.

Okay, I'll bite. What is up with having a whip or a cane attached to your
kazoo? Maybe I am just not imaginative enough? Or maybe I just haven't
run into "that kind" of kazoo? -- Millie
