There are such mornings, gleaming with sun in the spider webs, clouds like dazed sheep, the neighbor’s houses like Fairy Tale castles, by Jove what felicities of miasma arise before us. We step into the morn, fresh as clean linoleum and admire the works of majesty, ineffable quotidian miracles. And such admiration causes us to sing. Thank you Tom Lehrer, Thank you. We have an anthem for our day and now we can go onward and outward in fulsome praise of all the wee things that fly or crawl.
Though most know Tom Lehrer for his darkly lovely songs, many do not know that he invented the Jello shot. There are some gaps in cultural literacy that we hope to fill here at POTB.
