This is fantastic. Who knew camp was so controversial. 

What?! Why have death in a campfire song?!?!?

Part of American culture, I guess...hilarious. Reminded me of the time I was singing Irish music around St. Patty's day only to realize--now that I'm big and educated--that it was all Republican in IRA. Gave me a new perspective on history... 

Whoa. I guess St Valentines Day and Halloween are nothing like their origins, too.

Not in the least. But you don't want to open up that can of worms, do you?

I've given entire lectures on the history of several holidays in terms of hegemony, Roman conquest, etc...It could never be short... 

History can be horrifying.

Never gets boring.
