George Frideric Handel's great oratorio Messiah has been sung by hundreds of thousands of voices over the past 270 years. What is not known is that he stole both the idea and the music for the famous chorus from his little known brother Ralph "The Pot" Handel.
Apparently after waking up in the morning, following a night of feasting and drinking, with his mouth tasting like the bottom of a parrot cage Ralph penned the famous
HHHAAAlitosis (halitosis, halitosis), HHHAAAlitosis . . .
You heard it here first. No need to thank me.
