A contribution to her quest for the history of camp humour ... this is Canadian musical camp from the late sixties. I was singing this song many many years before I ever had a clue what it was about (along with the band's other songs about the invention of the birth control pill, Batman's sexual orientation, Peyton Place, the KKK's failed attempt to operate in Canada and lots of other interesting topics). And now that you know more than you probably want to about the kind of childhood I had ... (explains a lot though, doesn't it?)

Song title contains an extra "e" on the YouTube post; it's actually "The Wild Wilde West"
