    Smile spout medley=?

    Scenario:

    Bart's aunts took out a dollar to let Bart sing for them.

    Bart was singing alone...

    Aunt: Oh, yeah. Love that spout medley

    Questions:

    (1) What does spout medley exactly refer to?

    (2) Could you please make one or two sentences with 'spout medley' for me?

    I got the definition of 'medley' from Cambridge Dictionaries Online, but I am still in the dark.

    medley
    noun [C]
    1a mixture of different items, especially tunes put together to form a longer piece of music:

    a medley of popular tunes
    The menu described the dessert as 'a medley of exotic fruits'.

    Re: spout medley=?

    If I recall correctly, Bart sang the "I'm a Little Teapot" song for them for a dollar. One line in the tune goes "I'm a little teapot, short and stout; this is my handle, this is my spout."

    In order for Bart to have sung a "spout medley," he would've had to include a few other tunes that mention spouts. I don't remember whether or not he did, but in any case "spout medley" is a one-off joke, not a common reference.

    For example, I could jokingly announce "I am pleased to present my Aquatic Medley" and then sing pieces of "Blue Bayou," "Down by the Lazy River," and "Fire Lake."
