@Willie Oleson is my #1 suspect. Some of those videos scream Little House. Unless of course you are in cahoots with @Ome. But I still think it was Willz.

Winning song nominated by @Emelee


But…?

Who suggested this theme? Willie? Emelee? There's a bit of a battle going on between the two, but which one is correct?

Whoever this turns out to be, it won't be difficult to guess correctly when we do the Sea Shanty songs.
