    quota of fun in three minutes. Profligate I say... Profligate.

    And then after the dramatic finish, the revelation that you were going to a funeral.
    The BATHOS of it all. The lapse in mood from joy to mourning.

    After Rob schooled me on the origins of Calypso, and the "Finnish Ukuele's" role in it, I had to do the song he posted, which I'd never heard before either. I obviously need a lot of schooling. I did this one to honor Finland, Rob, and the "Finnish Ukulele", in that order.
