the allure of the song - what made the performance so funny at the time - was the fact that Rolf sang it in a French accent . Jake was a Frenchman -the extra leg had certain gallic phallic conotations to it . Everything funny in Britain in the sixties had to be at least a little dirty - or as Frankie Howard would say "common".
