I’ll be surprised if somebody doesn’t do something with “Istanbul (not Constantinople)” as well, especially what with the Hillary connection there, too.

(Photo 1: the area) When in Rangoon
(Photo 2: a stubbly man) Wanting to save face
(Photo 3: the shaving process) You can get a shave
(Photo 4: the end of the shave) That doesn’t cut the skin in any place
(Photo 5: another shot of the shaving process) Burma Shave. GET IT?!?

In the meantime:
When it was called Rangoon
It was a very good town
It was a very good town for small-ish dogs
And soft kitty cats
We’d use improvised sticks to chase rats
By the light of the moon
When it was called Rangoon

Now it’s called Yangon
It’s not such a great town
It’s not such a great town for Burmese dogs
And strange dog-like cats
We’re led by a bunch of rats
Off is called on
Now it’s called Yangon
