Just had to share this one!

Bernie Sings Wellerman

I believe this is a public video, so there should be no trouble viewing it, regardless if you're on Facebook or not (I'm not).

A convergence of the two cultural phenomena that are blowing up right now. First was the TikTok Sea Shanty craze and then there's vast interest in Bernie's mittens. Both of these are a bit bizarre but also kind of cool. I think Americans, and everyone else to some extent, are feeling like we're coming out from under a dark cloud since the inauguration. Perhaps a little giddiness is to be expected.

Sunday 24 January, on the television network
MSNBC    -- which show would this be? --
schedule time 7:45 EST.


Jen Ellis, the mitten-maker (schoolteacher) in Vermont who made
BERNIE SANDERS's MITTENS,
will have it announced
where you can bid for a pair of her mittens
(she's making them whilst we speak)
"to be auctioned off for good causes."

Jen Ellis's Twitter account, from which Tweet the preceding was quoted,
stands for Vermont Awesomeness --

vtawesomeness with that little symbol thingie in the front.

And what, exactly, is this tonguing stuff?

Mrrzy, "tonguing" was the processing of the whale after one was caught and brought to shore.

I read somewhere (maybe somewhere on Mudcat) that there were lots of songs about sailors killing whales, and lots of songs about whales killing sailors, but Wellerman may be the only one that ends in a draw.
