The one saying he had to diasable comments because people wouldn't shutup about Fallout. I don't think he's happy about getting our traffic.
Did he completely delete the video? That was the only place i could find a good quality version of the original song. 184.108.40.206 14:38, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

"ain't so very far from wrong"
I just fixed an edit where someone anonymous changed "ain't so very far from wrong" to "is so very far from wrong", which is, unfortunately, very close to wrong. :-)
It makes more logical sense as "is so very far from wrong," since he's clearly singing that the song (the one his spurs are singing) is right, not wrong. But the lyric is a reference to the old colloquialism, "That ain't far wrong," which means, "That's right."
The idea is (I think) that the statement in question is not far along the path toward wrong, meaning it's essentially right. However in the song, that's been changed to "ain't so very far FROM wrong," which is not really the right sense of the phrase. I'm guessing that "ain't so very far TOWARD wrong" sounded clumsy. In any event, it works. It's poetic license, and I don't think anyone is confused about what the song means.
More to the point, a careful listen to the song makes it clear what the lyric is. Dmunsil 18:26, November 4, 2010 (UTC)
I want to download this song, but its not on iTunes! Whre i can download it????
- It is on iTunes. It's on the album "Best of Kay Kyser and his Orchestra". Just search "Jingle Jangle Jingle" or "Best of Kay Kyser". It's also available on Amazon. Same searches. It's also in MP3 form in the data\sound\ folder of the game, if you're playing on PC. Dmunsil 03:17, November 12, 2010 (UTC)
