quicko: john who?

This is sad, folks, brace yourselves. Ready? Australians do not know who John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt is. Much less that his name is my name, too.

The reason why Australians don't know the song is that it was probably from German-American vaudeville acts from the late 1800s or early 1900s.
