How's by you?
I made a note last week to comment on Meryl Yourish's link lament. I was amused by it, as I think most people were, but I was a little disappointed that no one mentioned Allan Sherman and his little ode to Frere Jacques. So I thought I'd mention it. Now you can have a different version of that song running endlessly through your head. You're welcome.
UPDATE: I stand corrected. Rob Humenik made this observation last week. Way to go, Rob!

I have a bunch of Alan Sherman MP3s... it's amazing how comedy albums of the time like Sherman, Myron Cohen, and so on lack the rudeness and profanity of today's comedians.
Not to toot my own horn, but...
I did! I did!
The first thing I thought of when I saw Meryl's song was Sherman singing Sarah Jackman. I love Allan Sherman!
What is the origin of the question .... "How's by you"? I occasionally greet a person that way but have no idea where it came from.
