These joint-writing projects reminded me of an anecdote.

When my mother was little, she and her siblings decided to make up a song together, each one supplying a few words. Here is their final product:

You can dig it with a shovel
You can dig it with a spade
You can even dig it with a rusty old blade
Even though they don't sell 'em any more
For free.

Hahahahahaha. Those little kids thought they were hilarious. I do too.


  1. Why does theirs make more sense than ours?

  2. who ever said that it does?

  3. yep, my aunts and uncles are a cute bunch.

    Plus, you guys gotta hear the tune to really appreciate it.


Forth shall ye all hold.
