  1. Hilarious! Remember the bit where he was talking to Abner Doubleday about the new game called baseball that Doubleday invented?


  2. This is hilarious!!! I love it because it does sound pretty daft to bring tons of these leaves over. So we have to thank Walt for people being addicted to cigs and coffee.


  3. Hi John – love this … brought back happy memories of my aunt and uncle … they loved these sorts of songs – just brilliant – cheers Hilary


  4. One question I never missed in History class was “Who introduced tobacco to England?” Because of the Beatles song “I’m so tired”. I also got bonus points in a college pharmacology class for knowing the number stamped on a Qualude. It’s in a Rick James song. So much to learn from music!!
