“Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh; I Really Hate Your Alma Matuh!”

A little more than 60 years ago comedian/singer Allen Sherman wrote and performed a novelty song (“Hello Mudduh, Hello Fadduh!”) about a young Jewish boy who was sent to camp. The parody describes unpleasant, dangerous, and tragic situations, such as fellow campers going missing or contracting deadly illnesses.
