"Self-indulgence is better than no indulgence at all..."

America's greatest musical satirist and inventor of the Jell-O shot, Tom Lehrer, turns 83 today. The last professionally recorded video of Lehrer performing before an audience is the clip below, from a 1998 tribute to Broadway producer Cameron Mackintosh. And, yes, that really is Stephen Sondheim introducing him.

I think there is a lingering desire for literacy and I pride myself on being literate to the point of pretentiousness. I still say "whom" a lot. Why say "since" when you can say "in as much as?"
-Tom Lehrer
