One of my Guilty Pleasures

Maybe his jokes that would be classed as "problematic" today, remind me how far away from this I have come. But this is where I come from. This is the humor I was raised on.

One of his lesser-known tracks.  This is superficially about a couple who meet and marry and have a nice life together... but it's also about how everything in our lives are named by TLA's.

When "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadder" came out, my family had been listening to this guy for years already.  We kids could sing most of his songs by heart.  Today a few of his jokes are quite outdated, and most of them are only relevant if you were born Jewish to immigrant parents or grandparents.

Oh well.
