Oodles and Oodles
Forty some odd years ago I made up a song about mayonnaise. It was a Broadway worthy production complete with huge arm gestures and some fancy footwork.
"Oodles and oodles and oodles and oodles of maaaaayyyyyy ohhhhhh nnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyzzzzzzze!" Perhaps a little growl in my voice and a tip of the hat.
Lucky for you, I can't sing it right now. But I do sing it each and every time I make a sandwich.
For forty years.
Not always the fully choreographed version, but I do sing it whenever I make something calling for maaaaaaaaaayyyy ohhhhhhhh nnnnaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyzzzzzzzze.
And now, thanks to Weird Al Yankovic, I have to wrap those sandwiches in aluminum foil. And I cannot wrap a sandwich in aluminum foil without singing it exactly like Lorde sings her hit "Royals".
Every single day of my life ..... every single meal that I pack ..... each bite that I take on a park bench or at my desk ..... is an absolute theatrical masterpiece by The Voices in My Head featuring Hellmann's and Reynolds Wrap.
Thank you, thank you very much!
