Thread Name: Help: Little Boxes (Malvina Reynolds) ticky-tacky?
Subject: RE: Ticky-tacky
Ed - On the assumption that you don't know much about the game of cricket, a "box" is the name given to the protective device that a cricketer wears around his "wedding tackle" - to prevent a fast ball from leaving him singing soprano. I have heard a parody of "Little Boxes" on the subject.
