ooh..Cllr is playing the game! He's even rhyming! WHo'd have known?

I'm still trying to get a freind of mine to burn a CD of old folk tales as told my my now-deceased grandpa who told stories about the logging casmps in Canada..some of them spooky and eerie tales, some of them funny.

I have him singing some songs too..one called "Dunderback's Terrible Machine" about grinding up cats and long-tailed rats into sausages. I tried to find it in Digitrad with no luck. I maye have to enter it myself since the uncles are carrying on the tradition and adding new verses.

It goes..

Oh Mr. Dunderback why'd you have to be so mean...
something something about his iventing the terrible machine..
the bats and cats and long tailed rats will never more be seen,
for they've been ground up into sausages in Dunderback's Terrible machine!"

Pleasant, huh?

Just the thing to listen to when you are flat on your back. Never fear, old Dunderback gets his..his wife sleepwalks and accidentally bumps him into the machine and he becomes sausage in the end.

Anybody know this song?

For years when I was little, I wouldn't eat a local specialty from where the grandparents lived known as Krogen Bolongna because I thought it came from Mr. Dunderback. hehe.

Nice to hear from ya Cllr. I'll go check my email now.
