Mitch: Fair enough in terms of the "trivia" being unimportant, but I do think the explanations of the references to ASPCA and baseball make the song more accessible. If they'd been references to, say, cricket and the AWBI, you'd want an explanation, wouldn't you? --Bry 14:24, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

Oh boy. I don't want this to become a "U.S. vs the world" thing, but I just think that it's a percentage thing; it's a lot higher chance of Jonathan (or most any internet writer/singer/etc) would make those references than your examples, and a much higher percentage of people who are going to understand the baseball and ASPCA references that don't need the trivia explanation of them. I mean, I guess they can go back in, but it just seemed so ... like I said, trivial. --MitchO 14:52, 12 May 2008 (EDT)
