    In October of 2006, I had a delightful conversation with The World's Funnyman, Neil Hamburger! In this, the following was stated:

    Have you ever thought about releasing albums of just comedy songs?

    You know, I have thought about that quite a bit, and we've had some groups, some musical groups, asking about it, but I just haven't gotten it together yet. In the future, I'd like to get something going, but even with the lack of popularity of those songs, maybe the next one would be the one that really took off. Weird Al Yankovic has been ill lately, so maybe we could pick up and carry on in his fallen shoes.

    I see you as being the next Allan Sherman, perhaps.

    Why not? Those men had some sort of success, and I'd like to be the next one of those.

    And you deserve it.

    Why, thank you! This is exhausting work. I can't tell you all of the physical and mental ailments and emotional pain I have been through to make people laugh. It's too bad one has to make a sacrifice for the good of the many, but that's the way it is.

    Well, to my surprise, mr. hamburger has done just that! It's with great pride that I say he has an all-music album coming out soon, entitled Neil Hamburger Performs Country Winners. And from one of the songs I've heard, it's going to be an Ace Record release, with those in the know suggesting it will be a Very Important Record, up there with Bob Newhart's The Button-down Mind. A grammy, perhaps? let's not rule it out!111l1!!111!11!!!!!!
