NPR’s series Present at the Creation talked about overalls this morning. Coincidentally, I wore a new pair to work today. Besides the report and pictures, the site has four songs about overalls, including Bing Crosbys “Who Threw The Overalls In Mrs. Murphy’s Chowder?” You can’t sing that one today: “It’s an Irish trick, that’s true/ I can lick the mick that threw/ overalls in Mrs. Murphy’s chowder.”


  1. hey, i’m also wearing overalls today…

  2. Now wait…are overalls the same thing as bibs?…or are overalls like coveralls?…I’m getting confused. I can’t see Kim sitting around in coveralls, though. And I still say the dern things (bibs) are just not comfortable at all.
    Racial slurs aside, I do sort of like the phrase “lick the mick,” but I’m probably thinking of something entirely different than Bing…
