Midweek Madness: For my fellow 'Are You Being Served?" fans

As an unabashed Anglophile, I am fond of quite a few Britcoms, even ones that some Brits consider to be terribly déclassé. One of my faves is "Are You Being Served?"

I happened upon this musical salute to the show and just had to share it for this dash of Midweek Madness -- a song sung by the late, inimitable John Inman, a.k.a. Mr. ("I'm free!") Humphries.

I didn't know this song existed (and I'm not surprised). It's the sort of ditty you'd expect to turn up on ... an early episode of Benny Hill's show, but, as tacky as it is, it does provide a droll little reminder of the fabulous Grace Brothers department store and its ultimate Men's Wear sales clerk.
