Bourbon Cowboy

The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

My Photo
Location: New York, New York, United States

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

I'll give the answers when I'm good and ready.

LATER: Okay, I'm ready now. Answers in comments.

These are all things that are yelled after "like" during the song "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

I suppose your answers may vary, but these constitute the only version I've ever heard.

Unlike the Columbus line, you're supposed to say the Washington one like the "and many morrrrrre" line at the end of "Happy Birthday To You," so scansion be damned.

At least that's how I remember it.
