WACKY WEDNESDAY: Cornell Hurd's Comic Country

Just got back to town last night, so Wacky Wednesday is a little late today ...

Many of his song titles alone are funnier than most of what passes as "comedy" these days.

It's too bad that I couldn't find "The Genitalia of a Fool" on YouTube. But below are some other great examples:
