Is there an emoticon for sarcasm?;^=)
The sarcasm wasn't lost on me, though the irony of Woody's inclusion
My friend Michael Hurley (a fine songwriter and folksinger in his own
at a Folk festival once, said "Seeing as how we're at a Folk festival, I
think it's only appropriate that I do one of Woody's", and then launched
into "The Woody Woodpecker Song".

cylinder recording of "You're a Grand Old Rag")
