Lest anyone suffer from the delusion that when my brain does the thing where something pops into my head for reasons I can’t identify, it always offers up something that’s deep and significant, this morning the thing that’s floated to the surface is a Cab Calloway tune:
Folks, now here’s the story ’bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a red-hot hootchie-cootcher
She was the roughest, toughest frail,
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale.
I have no earthly idea why. (full lyrics here)
