    Don’t you remember “Two Live Jews”, the comedy album that “covered” Two Live Crew.

    You may be onto something. The Google returns precisely one hit for “You Never called Me by My Name” AND Yiddish.

    In the meantime, I have a few errands to run. I’ll be standing in a line someplace, think about this post, and start giggling. Not a pretty sight, when old men giggle all by themselves.

    Brilliant. Maybe could also do a rendition, “If I Were a Rich Man and my Dog Died while my Wife Cheated on me with My Divorce Lawyer.”
