In a recent episode of South Park, the kids don't know the meaning of
"skylarking" or "tomfoolery."

Sigh! The pop song, "Skylark," which contains a description of
skylarkink, is an old - really old, I guess - favorite of mine from
around the late '40's or early '50's and the meaning of "tomfoolery"
was once so well-known that it inspired an R&B record by that name in
the "50's.

BTW, if you've never seen a skylark skylarking, it's quite impressive.
