Thank You Captain Kangaroo

If you haven't figured out that I might be crazy, this post should remove all doubt!

I was minding my own business and actually doing some housework when the song "Animal Fair" popped into my head. I'm pretty sure I learned it as a child from the Captain Kangaroo program, but never realized the hidden meaning to the song. Of course the song was written in 1898 and probably had an entirely different meaning then. I might be crazy, but I'm not insane enough to believe that song was prophetic.

Animal Fair! With hidden meaning in parentheses.

" I went to the Animal Fair." (Congress)
"The birds and the beasts were there" (Dems and Repubs)
"The old raccoon, by the light of the moon was combing his auburn hair. ( Time wasting)

"The monkey he got drunk" (John Boehner makes his appearance)
"And sat on the elephant's trunk" (Parked his hiney in the Speaker's Chair)
"The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees, but what became of the monk?" (Lost a re-election?)

And in case we needed a reminder of why the GOP needs to lose, this should do it for normal, sane people.

I know that's not Boehner, but you get the picture.


  1. Sherry: I know what you mean. Once in a while an earworm will appear from a song of long ago and I have no idea where it came from.

  2. It looks more like that assface weasel Mitch McConnell actually

    Almost like a prediction from Nostradamus.
