Trivia of the day for September 18
An Irish wag (jester or buffoon). This Old Man is a nursery rhyme of unknown origin. The rhyme and its associated tune have become well-known in popular culture through several renditions and parodies. The rhyme was originally better known in the United Kingdom than the United States; however, this changed with the 1958 film The Inn of the Sixth Happiness. In fact, the usage of the song in this film was so popular that it led to a hit single by Mitch Miller titled The Children’s Marching Song.
