B) "If you like funny jokes, they put you away"? Shari Lewis, what kind of old lady phrases were you putting in our heads? I spent more years than I would like to admit singing/"rapping" along to that song and thinking I was dumb for now knowing what it meant. How dare you, madam. How dare you.

E) Why do I find myself increasingly wondering how racist I am?
