On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me twelve drummers drumming…
 
Boxcars!
 
 

Six and six is twelve and 12 is ‘boxcars’, as Curly replied to little Jimmy in the 1937
short ‘Cash And Carry’. If you’re not sure about this, ask any friend or family member
that visits the dice tables in Las Vegas or Atlantic City and they can explain it to you.

As to drumming, specifically…One of the synonyms is thump…which, if we play the same
game, leads us from thump to punch to hit to strike to smack to knock to whack to cuff to
clout to wallop to bash and to smash…which gives us 12 drummings with The Three
Stooges doing the drumming! Bet you thought we’d never get there with this one,
did you! Nyuk! Nyuk! Nyuk!
