My mother had the Tom Lehrer Song Book.  She would play them on the piano and we would sing along.  … Jim

What’s your favorite risk of the week…?

by Andrew Maynard




Forget Dr. Oz and The Food Babe – the Risk Bites Holiday Video has enough risks du jour for everyone, and then some.


With a tongue in cheek tip of the hat to Tom Lehrer’s Elements Song, we’ve crammed 108 risks into a mere 80 seconds – everything from arsenic and Ebola, to mega storms and falling off a unicycle!  And if you can keep up, you can even indulge in a little song-along Risk Karaoke with the closed captions turned on!
