“With a MOOC MOOC here and a MOOC MOOC there, here a MOOC, there a MOOC, everywhere a MOOC-MOOC, Old Mac Donald had a farm, ee-i, ee-i, oh.” Which reminds me of one of the funniest things I have even seen on t.v. You have to laugh your butt off on the way to the final stanza to get to the Moo-Moo but you’ll thank me for it. (Or jump ahead to 3:17 if you must.)
