During the War 'Twixt the States, the Confederates needed new sources of saltpetre for their blackpowder manufacture. They started asking the ladies to save their urine. Here's a little song concerning the situation.

Well, I was laughing along until the end....went from bahaha to ewwww in one line. One of my best friends in school, her dad made up little ditties about local gossip, which were SO hilarious, but he aaaalways had to go just one step too far. That's probably a trait that goes with this type of artist (& yes, I consider it art - does more to lighten the heart than most 'art'). I'm not altogether sure I ever heard the whole ditty from from my friend's dad...had to hear it from my friend later.

Thanks for the Giggle Giggle Giggle Giggle Giggle

He wrote one completely sacrilegious one to the tune of "Bringing in the Sheaves" when a local preacher in his early 40s got caught making out with a teen girl ( yeah, he was a gross one). Cops caught them way out in the middle of nowhere on some man's land who called it in. My friend's Dad titled it "Porkin' in the Weeds". It was so wrong, but I swear I couldn't catch my breath when she sang it to us.
