Quayle's back!

It feels suspiciously like 1992 all over again.

If you could repeat 1992 what would you do?

Me, I'd load up on DELL and MSFT.

Yes! We have no potato! We have no potato today!

Actually in the original song, the seller does have po-tay-to today!

"There's a fruit store on our street,
It's run by a Greek
And he keeps good things to eat,
But you should hear him speak
When you ask him anything, never answers 'No'
He just 'yes -ses' you to death
And as he take your dough he tells you:

Yes! we have no bananas, we have no bananas today!
We've broad beans like bunions
cabbahges and honions
And all kinds of fruit and say,
We have an old fashioned tomahto a nice Jersey potahto,
But yes! we have no bananas!
We have no bananas today!

I didn't think pelmeni were usually made with potatoes. Wouldn't potato pelmeni just be vareniki or pirogies?

HA! Palladian, that's a great song, and it's in my car CD changer right now. I know this is going to sound totally yuppie, but Pottery Barn Kids sell these CDs with the most interesting compilations of classics like this one.

OK, actually, I think they sell the Louis Prima version of the song which is not the original.

Hey Palladian, you stole my schtick from the first potato post. Great minds think alike

yeah, but what about "black magic?"

I love 40's music, cuz bad singers were allowed to make great songs.
