That was great, Ze. Never knew this song-poem industry existed. I don't think I'm ever going to hear a lyric that beats "Thank Jehova for Kung Fu Bicycles and Priscilla Presley". Pure gold.

Thanks for this.

There is a great "This American Life" on pbs radio on the same subject here. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/node/3096 (act three).
