It's called 'Yakety Sax,' bitches

Every once in a while I get a huge page view hit from people seaching the phrase "Benny Hill Show polka." I'm assuming these people are searching for the chase-sequence theme tune to Benny Hill; why my blog shows up near the top of such a search, I have no idea.

If people really are searching for the Benny Hill theme tune:
1) It's called "Yakety Sax," by Boots Randolph.
2) It's not a polka.

And, but putting the phrase "Benny Hill Show polka" into your post ... You're now that much higher on the lists of things to show up! Congratulations, you stealthy guy, you! You've figured out how to play the Search Engine Wars!

Unless you'd rather not be visited by people who want to get ahold of the theme song to the Benny Hill Show, in which case, don't use the phrases any more.

My fella hums (mouth kazoos?)that whenever I walk quickly or - god forbid - have to jog (across the street - to catch the bus - to catch up with him because I have short legs). Annoying.

But it's such a terrific tune. I personally use it to seduce women -- candlelight, wine, and Yakety Sax -- works every time. That is to say, none of the time.

People who search for "Benny Hill Show Polka" were voted most likely to enjoy the blog "Dancing The Polka With Miss El Cajon" amongst all confused internet users by all of the professional trombone players turned music ed. degree seekers named Eric in all of Minneapolis so I, for one, see this as a good thing.

Heh! Yakety Sax. I can't think of that without picturing the saxophonists paraded out in front of the band for Indoor.
Ah, memories.

I liked "pendejos". but "bitches" is also good.

The NYT crossword puzzle for February 9, 2007 included the clue "Polka heard frequently on 'The Benny Hill Show'". That's why people are searching for "benny hill show polka". (I have no comment on why your blog is showing up high on the search results, or why the crossword author thought it was a polka in the first place.)
