George Formbsy Parody Spoof or Legit? It's going into my repertoire regardless.

Might have been inspired by Formby's "Under the Blasted Oak" where he is in search of LSD. ;)

"Formby" if you're talking about da man. "Formsby" if you are spelling-challenged or the name itself is a parody.

The first video is very clearly a parody. And yes, George did search for LSD in "Under the Blasted Oak," but he was searching for money, not drugs-- "L.S.D" being popular shorthand for Pounds, Shillings, and Pence.

Aha! The CIA didn't sanction LSD "Experimentation", until 1953. So I thought the proposed premise unlikely. Your explanation clinches that. It was odd that George was playing several different ukuleles as well. Thank you much.
