When I read the latest post at Dappled Things, I suddenly got the urge to break into a Broadway show tune:
Ev'rythin's up to date in Kansas CityOh, what a beautiful mornin.'
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go!
They went and built a skyscraper seven stories high
About as high as a buildin' oughta grow
Ev'rythin's like a dream in Kansas City
It's better than a magic lantern show!
Y' c'n turn the radiator on whenever you want some heat
With ev'ry kind o' comfort ev'ry house is all complete
You c'n walk to privies in the rain and never wet your feet!
They've gone about as fur as they c'n go
-- from the musical Oklahoma by Rogers and Hammerstein
