For Laughs: ‘I’m My Own Grandpa’

Need a laugh? I do! The news has been just so awful lately…

I’m My Own Grandpa, possibly the most confusing song ever written, first became a hit in 1947 and has since been performed by many artists. This version is by Ray Stevens. I couldn’t find the Smothers Brothers singing it, but a lot of others did.

The really funny thing about this song is that it isn’t nonsense at all: it’s strictly logical. I am taking logic professors’ word for it.
