The Ballad of Whit and Ham

Whit's wiping down the counter, Connie's mopping the floor, and the kids are sipping on their milkshakes. If you want to talk about Adventures in Odyssey the radio drama, this is the spot to do just that!

It's an honour to hear your eternal masterpiece sung with such love and feeling.

Seriously, it sounds really good, and I'm worried I will get it stuck in my head, start singing it out loud, and have to try to explain any piece of the lyrics to someone else. :thud:

It turned out significantly better than I expected…

This is actually pretty catchy, I like it! =D>

I'd be interested in knowing the history behind this ongoing 'Whit and Ham' that I see frequently referenced around the ToO. :-k

I don't really remember. >_>

I thought the lyrics were originally posted publicly but I had to dig them out of a private faction to make this work of art.

Maybe someone else has a better memory, I kinda sorta think it all started from a thread about random AIO matchmaking and I or a like minded individual said "Whit and ham" for no reason. And it evolved. It was 2005, we didn't know better. But I think it was a dumb joke before the song lyrics. And by dumb joke, I mean a very smart joke.
