The ice cream truck jingle is the sound of innocent childhood summers and also the melody to the most racist song in the history of the United States.Still to this day the familiar tune is responsible for setting off frenzied excitement among children across the country.Popularly known as the 19th century standard 'Turkey in the Straw', the song in fact owes its roots to minstrel song's including the offensively titled, 'N***** Love a Watermelon Ha! Ha! Ha!'
Am sooooo tired of this sh*t!
Only the British could come up with a complaint like this one....
[[ Popularly known as the 19th century standard 'Turkey in the Straw' ]]Just sitting here with my banjo in my lap playing that tune, right now.Not a joke, I -really am- doing that.No apologies, big smile on my face!
