07 SepWhy Folk Songs Are Your Friends

I know too many people who know more of these than most of them would be willing to admit. Except for two or three people who gleefully would admit to knowing them all or at least a whole lot more of them than anyone in their right minds would want to know… You people know who you are.

Things I’ve learned from British folk ballads, including the ever popular If you are physically unable to get pregnant due to being male, the girl you had sex with will get pregnant. No good will come of it. You’ll either kill her, or she’ll kill herself, or her husband/brother/father/uncle/cousin will kill you both. In any case her Doleful Ghost will make sure everyone finds out. You will either get hanged, kill yourself, or be carried off bodily by Satan. Your last words will begin “Come all ye.”
