Jude's Drug, Plus a Nickname I Don't Use Anymore

I just discovered that if Jude is fussing for whatever reason, his angst can be soothed by the vocal stylings of moi, a la How Much is that Doggy in the Window.

If you don't know it, it goes a little like

How MUCH is that doggy in the window,
(Ruff ruff!)
The one with the waggly tail?
How MUCH is that doggy in the window,
(Ruff ruff!)
I do hope that doggy's for sale.

My mom used to sing it to us when we were taking our bath and it just started slipping out of my mouth.  No other song has ever had such a powerful effect.

My mom used to also call my brother "Buster Brown" when he was a babe.  That also started slipping out of my mouth, and then I realized I didn't know who or what Buster Brown was.  I looked it up on Wikipedia.  Freaky.  (I just asked my mom what she took it from and apparently it was a brand of shoes when she was growing up.)

The End.
