Big Quadratic

The second verse would've had a line like ''if you look you can find me by the symmet-tree!'' in the Big Quadratic Mountain.

This is an old song that dates back to the 1800s. However, the first version I'd encountered was a sanitized version that was turned into a children's tune for one of a series of kiddie videos about 20 years ago. (The videos were a little older than that.)

The next encounter I had was finding out that Burl Ives had recorded a version of the song. But for all his friendly Rudolph cheer, his was the traditional rendition, not one aimed at the kids.

Come back often for more funny math and geeky comics.
