Favorite Videos: “Poisoning Pigeons in the Park,” Tom Lehrer

Because this is becoming my All Saints equivalent of last year’s Yuletide posts, I decided to keep going with the slightly morbid music and crafts trend. I owe a special debt to lordbyronsbloomers at 8tracks for bringing this classic Tom Lehrer song back to my attention after so many years. In the pantheon of saints of melody, mathematics, and excoriating dark humour, Lehrer is truly unparalleled.

“If, after hearing my songs, just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend, or perhaps to strike a loved one, it will all have been worth the while.”
