Laughing out loud on the Metro

This one isn’t related to reading. It is related to music. Yesterday, I was listening to Bing Crosby on the way home. Bing Crosby and Bob Hope were doing a duet of “If I Knew You Were Coming I’d’ve Baked A Cake”. This was back in the day when there was some improvisation that went along with the singing. I’ve heard the song a dozen times, and there is always one line that makes me laugh–out loud. This was the first time I was on the Metro home, however. The line is:

Bob: “If you’d knew I was coming you’d have had a meal”
Bing: “Seven course”
Bob: “Mostly horse”

At that point I laughed and pretty loudly too. I think I startled the people who were sitting around me.
