I love the Ying Tong song!!! brings back so many memories - mostly of us all trying to imitate the Goons.

They are perfect for serious silliness!

Sometimes we need to remember that EVERYONE isn't a Goon Show fan. We make jokes here that we are so used to, and we roll about giggling while our friends look on with concern. I have a STACK of Goon Show cassettes!

Hi Mrinz-- I've loved "Ying Tong" for years, too... My kids now enjoy it, and can't believe that it's sung by grown-ups (although they're pretty sure the last part is actually two guinea pigs...)

Hiya, PM-- brings a whole new meaning to "the brightest and the best", non? I'm glad I'm in such good company...

And Nan-- Whatwhatwhatwhatwhat??? There are actually people out there who are NOT Goon Fanatics??? Anyone who "looks on with concern" is worth being concerned about...

xoxo CGF
