    Morse code, Off-color joke

    I once heard that the Telegraph in the trainstation at Adventureland in either DL or WDW(MK) once tapped out an off color joke. is this true?

    AND, I know that it's not really disney-like, but... does anybody know what the joke was?

    It is true and it was out in Disneyland's station in New Orleans Square/ Frontierland. It was discovered by of all people, Lillian Disney! Her father worked in the telegraph business and she learned Morse Code from him.

    Does anyone know what the morse code in the Frontierland Railroad station at Walt Disney World says? Or where I could find out? It's not the same as the Railroad station at Disneyland.

    Thanks

    So, what was the joke? I can imagine that "off color" back then would be practically G-rated today.
