Giving Me The Bird

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I got a new phone a year or two ago and I eventually set my ringtone to be the song Tex Avery’s down-on-his-luck wolf character used to whistle while he was walking… usually into an inevitably painful situation.

It’s a mighty catchy song and often after my phone rings, I hear people around the office whistling it. More than once I’ve reached for my phone only to realize it’s just a spaced-out co-worker.

This morning I tried to answer my phone, but it wasn’t ringing at all. The bird outside of my window was whistling the wolf’s tune!

Dude,
How did you get that song for your ringtone…
I’ve looked for years!

That’s awesome.
Of course,
now I’ll be whistling it all day!
lol

What is the name of that song?

Dee– I don’t think it has a name. As far as I know it’s just in those Tex Avery cartoons.

The song is called “Jublio” or “Kingdom Coming”. It’s all over Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary.
