  1. How did tartar sauce get its name? … It began with a collision – Two brothers (last name of Tar) bumped into each other in their kitchen. First Bro: You got your pickle in my mayonnaise! … Second Bro: No, you got mayonnaise on my pickle! So they compromised and the condiment was invented and named after them – Tartar sauce!
  2. Why is Mardis Gras (aka Shrove Tuesday) also known as Pancake Day? … Because In New Orleans there are lots of French speaking people, and they like crepes, so to make it easier to pronounce they just called it Tuesday Pancake Day.
  3. Why do so many people eat fish during Lent? … I don’t know why anyone would want to eat fish, but maybe this one day someone lent them some to try.
  4. What is the difference between sushi and sashimi? … Susi and Sashi were mermaids – one a blonde, the other a red-head.
  5. What is noodling? … That is what you do when boiling pasta noodles for spaghetti.
  6. How do you clean a fish? … You don’t – you don’t like fish, you don’t go fishing, and you certainly don’t give them a bath!
  7. What are Swedish fish? … Bad people in Sweden who are internet Trolls.
  8. What is a Bishop’s Mitre? … This is where the congregation passes through the doorway detector that identifies who has lice and mites, or other pests.
  9. What was the movie, The Shoes of the Fisherman about? … This movie was about a cobbler who made specialty shoes for sportsmen.
  10. What is the first day after Lent known as? … Return It Day – because when you lend someone something, you expect it to be returned to you the next day.

From a Wiki article:

Long Black Veil” is a 1959 country ballad, written by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin and originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell.

It is told from the point of view of a man falsely accused of murder and executed. He refuses to provide an alibi, since on the night of the murder he was having an extramarital affair with his best friend’s wife, and would rather die and take their secret to his grave than admit the truth. The chorus describes the woman’s mourning visits to his gravesite, wearing a long black veil and enduring a wailing wind.

In 2019, Frizzell’s version of “Long Black Veil” was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Recording Registry for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.[1]

Lyrics
Ten years ago, on a cold dark night
Someone was killed, ‘neath the town hall light
There were few at the scene, but they all agreed
That the slayer who ran, looked a lot like me
The judge said son, what is your alibi
If you were somewhere else, then you won’t have to die
I spoke not a word, thou it meant my life
For I’d been in the arms of my best friend’s wife
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me
Oh, the scaffold is high and eternity’s near
She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear
But late at night, when the north wind blows
In a long black veil, she cries ov’re my bones
She walks these hills in a long black veil
She visits my grave when the night winds wail
Nobody knows, nobody sees
Nobody knows but me
