Question about songs

I know everyone and his cousin Frank has heard "The Internet is for Porn", but I'm curious; how well-known are the other songs from Avenue Q, among people who haven't seen the show?

10 and 2 4

As a step towards preventing kidneystones, I should give up Dr Pepper. But I love the stuff. So I think I'll permit myself to drink it... but only twice a month. As a mnemonic for myself, I'll think of the old Dr Pepper slogan "Drink a bite to eat at 10, 2 and 4," and drink Dr Pepper only on the 10th and 24th of each month. And as a series of dangling modifiers, I'll keep misusing these "As an X, I'll Y" phrases.

So... next weekend... cheers!

Gandhi II

I notice people still have trouble spelling "Gandhi", presumably because the two-letter combination "dh" is harder for English speakers to imagine than "gh". Nevertheless, "dh" is what the name is spelled with.

So I thought of a mnemonic. Gandhi was a man of peace. Peace, man. Imagine he was a hippie, gettin' peaceful, chillin' out, smokin' a doobie, and getting good and high. Good AND HIgh. G-AND-HI. GANDHI.

Peace out, man.
