Skinflints and Accidents

Yesterday’s Zippy, with a burlesque that has given me a monster earworm:

From Wikipedia:

“Incense and Peppermint[s]” is a song by the Los Angeles-based psychedelic rock band Strawberry Alarm Clock. The song is officially credited as having been written by John S. Carter and Tim Gilbert, although it was based on an instrumental idea by band members Mark Weitz and Ed King. It was released as the A-side of a single in May 1967 by Uni Records

You can listen to it here, with accompanying suitably psychedlic images.

Crucial lines from the original:

Incense and peppermint[s], meaningless nouns
Turn on, tune in, turn your eyes around.

Beatniks and politics, nothing is new
A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothin’ to lose.
