I'm putting "Warning: Undignified" on my tombstone.

1. This is probably way funnier if you're familiar with whatever it is they are sending up. A specific song perhaps?

2. "If I were as high as the moon in the sky..." but how high were they when they made this?

3. Someone should DTMFA, this relationship is doomed.

Also i just misread tombstone as trombone. Yes you all should definitely go put that warning on your trombones. Go on!

If we're talking about novelty songs from the 1940's with the word "Serenade" in the title, I prefer this one.

Puts me in mind of the birdaphone, also featured in Laura.

This is the guy represented in the exceptionally weird episode of “Atlanta” season 2, or do I have my names mixed up? Ah, mixed up. That was Teddy Perkins. Would have been even weirder if this guy.

Weirder still if Tex Perkins.
