Now listen up, people.

I could talk about some bad stuff (Who the f*ck arrests Rep. Joyce Beatty for singing in the Capitol Rotunda? How can we snuff out Joe Manchin's damn power trip to make him push for at least a carve-out for voting rights? Why does the New York Frikkin' Times spend 4,000 words and god knows how much money and time on a deep dive into racist, fascist, authoritarian-loving f*cking coffee vendors?)

I could talk about some good stuff (God, I love Trey Mancini and Cedrick Mullins, and I'm so pleased they had a great time at the All-Star Game. The psycho Kraken "Lawyers" seem to be having their asses shredded and handed back to them in taco shells. And more baseball, My Orioles will be making history with an all-female broadcast team next week against the Rays.)

But instead, because even though Facebook is Evil with a capital E, it also has this memories feature which reminded me of this video I shared nine years ago, and frankly, you all deserve to enjoy Allan Sherman.

Raise your hand if you promise to show someone this Allan Sherman video. Or just rant in the comments. Either way.
