Me (singing): All around the mulberry bush, the monkey chased the weasel, the monkey thought it was all in fun, Pop! goes the weasel!

Her: What does that even mean? What is that song supposed to be about?

Me: Unexploded ordinance.

Her: What?

Me: Yeah. It's from a German post-war children's song, "Boomf Geht Der Weasel."

Her: Really?

Me: No.

Her: Because it does seem like something the Germans would sing about.
