Werewolf + (ha[Chinese menu]nd)

Because while I don't really like puns, I apparently think that math/coding humor is the Bomb...

Technically, it feels as if that should be "werewoof" above, from the song, "Werewooves of London." I don't know why people have such a hard time saying wolf or wolves. What is that all about?

I'm not a huge fan of that song, but it has earwormed itself into my head. This heppened roundaboutly last week, due to listening to the earworm-of-the-moment on YouTube ("My Love Is Alive," by Gary Wright). There was a Three Dog Night song on the "suggestions" side-bar that I decided to listen to, and then another one I'd never heard of, and then I went to Spotify to listen to a bunch of their songs, because why not? That's just how ratholing is. \o?

Pretty soon, I stumbled over Shambala, which I didn't realize was their song and had also been mishearing as 'Shangri-La" all this time.

The chorus, with "Ah-ooOOOOOOOOOOOOoooo... Ai-yi-yi-yi-yi..." was what did it. It's one small step from there to, "Ah-OOOO werewooves of London!"

So, at least the genesis of THAT earworm is not a mystery.

Also, my favorite Three Dog Night song? Mama Told Me Not To Come. Which apparently was written by Randy Newman. Who knew he was that busy back then? :O
