But there is something about the pitiful dolefulness and delusional foolishness about the corny song below (“I Heard George Washington Weeping”) that I find peculiarly endearing. Maybe it’s just hathos, but I think it’s probably not. It’s probably just that it makes me laugh and makes me think that if this guy is despairing this much, maybe things really aren’t so bad after all:
