Thread Name: The funniest song you have ever heard!
Subject: RE: The funniest song you have ever heard!
MARK GRAHAM out of Seattle has some funny tunes, like his song about Oedipus Rex: Oedipus Rex, Oedipus Rex. Another song about violence and sex! He murdered his pa and married his ma, they don't even do that in Arkansas! He also has a bluegrass version of Moby Dick, if you can imageine that.

One that made me laugh recently is Jonathan Lay's song about the New Carissa, a cargo ship that was grounded in Coos Bay Oregon. You can listen here. It's full of the double entendre famous in sea shanteys..... Margo
