A posit about Eddie Izzard’s Wunderbar show made me repeat in my mind “tnere’s a word in German that I think says it all” – which is of course (?) from Tenpole Tudor’s song Wunderbar. If you’re not familiar with it, don’t worry, I’ve posted it here. Just get to the chorus and you get the idea.
The story behind this? The ‘tudes had a medieval shtick going on and enjoyed a hit single with Swords of a Thousand Men. Follow that! said the record company – “…and we want it to be really similar to the other one! That way, we’ll make lots more money!”
I will think of more runts from the same litter as time goes by – but you are of course welcome to dive in.
