Yesterday, during the Rose Bowl parade, the marching band from Pulaski, Wisconsin marched and played "On Wisconsin," the Badgers fight song, over and over.

When they got in front of the reviewing stand they stopped and played something else. The crowd roared appreciatively but the commenters didn't notice what they were playing. They were playing "Union Maid," a union song from decades ago.

The record I ended up memorizing from my Dad's collection was Tom Lehrer's "Songs by Tom Lehrer..." Be prepared!

Ah, but did you get up in front of the whole 4-H Camp and sing "The Irish Ballad"? Amazingly, they didn't kick me out...*g*

Rickety Tickety Tin!

That verse goes with anything *ggg*. Guaranteed to turn heads. Don't get me wrong, I don't dwell completely on the serial killer satire. I love 'Be Prepared', too, and the Wild West is delightfully subversive, still. "Where the scenery's attractive, and the air is radioactive..."

Though 'Dixie' might be coming back into vogue-- "Poll Tax! How I love you, how I love you, my...dear...old...Poll Tax!"

Tom did know how to insult every corner of the country.
