My mom said I had really bad melisma as a kid. But after she took me to the dermatologist, I got better and it all ended on a good note.

A friend of mine never got better, but when you try to tell him, he just won't hear it. He has a job singing the national anthem at sporting events, so he goes all over the place.

Oh, and you don't have to worry about Katherine Chloe Cahoon any more. She was the one killed by that rabid mountain goat when she forgot to "wiggle those hips" to get out of the way.
