An early mornin' discovery of a delightful coincidence

I jes' eyed the followin' statistics with regard to one of my recent visitors:

Now, 'ccordin' to the stories that I heard in my youth, durin' the Great Potato Famine, my early ancestors bearin' the surname of Russell began to leave the above designated area, travelin' in the steerage of merchant ships in an effort to reach America. As such, it behooves me to wish to welcome my cousin from across The Great Pond who found his/her way to my post entitled Read My Lips: This is neater than X-Ray glasses through a Google search for x-ray glasses. It's a small world, after all. I won't be tryin' to copyright that last bit, as I am fairly sure it has been used previously.


It's A Small World

It's a world of laughter, a world or of tears
It's a world of hopes, it's a world of fear
Theres so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

You've got a typo in the "delightful coincidence" commentary.

The text at bottom reads:

>It's A Small World
>It's a world of laughter, a world or tears
>It's a world of hopes, it's a world of fear
>Theres so much that we share
>That its time we're aware
>It's a small world after all

The text "a world or tears" should read "a world of tears".

Cool! Thanks for spottin' it. There were actually several typos on the original text I copied from the actual source of the lyrics. I seemed to have missed that one. Thanks!

- Tig ... All I know is that from time immemorial we've always called that stupid but fun disney ride "clocks"...for three generations the fun thing to do when we served as a tourist crash-pad for all "outlander" family visiting from the other "50" was to make the disney trek up to Any-ham and spend the day. Sitting on the far back of the old Disney lot, as it does, made it a nice break in all the walking and pushing of strollers.....On a completely OT subject - seemed weird to watch LurchKerry standing in the crowd in the rain at the library opening like any ordinary citizen (Do these people know he's a war hero? heh)....He had an umbrella in hand instead of just flatting out his hair... Teh-ray-zaa was nowhere in sight...Never catch her with that trailor trash ..... Watching the Army guy singing the military "march me boys, march" brought to mind Andy Koufman on SNL doing his "mighty mouse" parody....
