Twing toustlers

Roger Green reports from a Capitol Steps live performance:

Among other things in their rapid-fire presentation, they addressed the Greek financial crisis with songs from the musical Grease. It ends with one male cast member reciting a talk in which he reverses a couple consonants regularly; Borge W. Gush, e.g. it’s not only funny, it’s difficult to do.

Extremely so, I’d say. This is one of the few records from 1962 to which I could never, ever learn the words:

Jack Ross (1916-1982) also recorded the easier-to-sing “Happy José (Ching Ching).” Incredibly, both of these were released by big-name Dot Records.
