Who's On First

Yesterday I was listening to "My Generation" by The Who, when My daughter (12) asked.

"Who is singing that?"

I answered, 'Who."

She said, "That's what I asked, who.

I again answered, "Who." Then thinking out loud, "Who's on first?"

Then I asked, "Haven't you heard of the group called The Who?"

She answered, "No."

When I went into my lengthy explanation, as I am apt to do, she slowly walked away, shaking her head.

I have the Abbott and Costello "Who's on First" on tape. VHS, how "old fashioned" can you get?

How about having an old 78 of the routine? I actually don't have it, but my grandmother used to have one. After she died one of the cousins got it. I will have to contact her and see if she still has it.

Oh, I love that routine! Great comedy that has withstood the test of time, and not an F-word in the whole thing! Imagine that!!!!!
