Where have all the comic songs of yesteryear gone?

As a child I remember so many comic songs being played on the radio…or wireless as we called it then. I’m sure they were mostly of little real merit and probably not very comical  but we loved them. I can’t imagine anything more ghastly now than ‘The Laughing Policeman’ and yet it was on Children’s Favourites almost every weekend. Then here was ‘You’re A Pink Toothbrush’, ‘Does Your Chewing Gum Loose Its’ Flavour On The bedpost overnight?’, ‘My Old Man’s A Dustman’… oh , the list is endless. I was reminded of this when I took this photo in Ireland of a bed of begonias… with one lonely little viola and ‘I’m A Lonely Little Petunia In An Onion Bed’ sprang to mind.

Can you see the lonely little viola?
