Jerry Rasmussen: At least our version of "Here comes the bride" was free of racism %^):

Here comes the bride,

Fair, fat, and wide.

Here comes the groom,

Skinny as a broom.

-- A better rhyme, too.

For "That's life", cf.

Spring is coming.

He is?

Not "he is", "it is".

It is what?

It is coming.

What is coming?

Spring is coming.

He is?, etc.
