The romance of Mow Cop and Scholars Green, Cheslyn Hay

Ben's from Cheslyn Hay.
I've been listening to a lot of Flanders and Swann recently - comic songs with good puns from the 1950s.

Ignore the visuals: their song about Thermodynamics is ace:

And some very dated filth:

Have you ever read Googlewhacking by Dave Gorman, Voley?

I haven't read the book but did listen to the radio show.

Okay. In the book he uses the Thermodynamics song to ridicule an American Creationist who seemed a bit wacky.

Just reminded me of it.

Excellent - I'll look it up. Flanders and Swann are a little reactionary - of their time really - but very funny.
