Random information on the term “Tomfoolery”:

An Evening Wasted with Tom Lehrer is an album recorded by Tom Lehrer, the well-known satirist and Harvard lecturer. The recording was made on March 20–21, 1959 in Sanders Theater at Harvard.

The lyrics refer to killing pigeons with cyanide-coated peanuts and strychnine-treated corn. The latter method was used by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service to control pigeon populations in Boston public areas during the 1950s. The pianist hired for the studio-recorded album, More of Tom Lehrer, fell off his bench when he heard the title.[improper synthesis?]

This song borrows heavily from “The Whiffenpoof Song”, the traditional signature song of the Yale Whiffenpoofs.[citation needed]

The lyrics of “The Elements” are a recitation of the names of all the chemical elements that were known at the time of writing, up to number 102, nobelium. It can be found on his albums Songs & More Songs by Tom Lehrer as well as An Evening Wasted with Tom Lehrer. The song is sung to the tune of Sir Arthur Sullivan’s “Major General’s Song” (“I am the very model of a modern major-general…”) from The Pirates of Penzance. Since that time, 16 more have been discovered. At his concert in Copenhagen (1967), Lehrer admitted, “I like to play this song every once in a while, just to see if I can still do it!” Indeed, several of Lehrer’s fans, such as actor Daniel Radcliffe, have tried and failed to sing it. That is, he sung it in its entirety, but with slight hiccups. At some concerts he also played a version he claims is based on Aristotle’s elements: “There’s earth and air and fire and water.”
