On tonight's episode of The Simpsons, Lurline Lumpkin's father did the
hambone in accompaniment to his daughter's singing.

For the more mature among us: did any y'all know that Dee Clark, the
R&B singer who had a hit in 1961 with "Raindrops," was, as a child
under his real name of Delecta Clark, one of The Hambone Kids of 1952?


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
