Saturday Rave: Bazonka by Spike Milligan

We've tackled a couple of heavyweights recently, but now it's back-to school/work time and so we can stop thinking so hard. 

Here's something short and sweet and cheerful - and, as it happens, it makes a Word Den post all by itself, too (thanks, Spike).

It begins like this:

Say Bazonka every day
That's what my grandma used to say
It keeps at bay the Asian Flu'
And both your elbows free from glue
So say Bazonka every day 
(That's what my grandma used to say)

The rest of the poem can be found HERE. (It's very short.)

Word To Use Today: well, Bazonka. obviously. This word was used by Spike Milligan's grandma, apparently, but heaven knows where she got it from because no one else does.
