I really enjoyed it when that was in the setlist because there were always a bunch of people in the audience who got taken by surprise by that line. It was sweet.

He was alternating that song with Bob when I saw them on the Lynwood Tour. We got "Bob".
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!

It's just like, wait a minute, let it build up to being funny either after, or at the very least the last beat of the first verse. And I mean comic beat not drum beat. Or if on (I'm having fun with this, sorry) "Good Old Days" he went "Oh, sometimes I think back to when I was younger and I tried to wear your skin. Dad would be up at dawn..." Too early. Come up with your own examples! It's fun! :)


I know this is a relatively old thread, but this is fun. Also, I agree exactly with your point about the opening lines of this song. The "big fat turd" line works because it comes at the peak of the bridge, but leading with one of the most graphic lines lessens the rest of the song. Great song, though!

Anyway...on to eleventhirtyfour's game. I'm not sure if these really apply or if I'm just amusing myself, but either way...

"Say, do you remember that guy Larry next door?
Well, I killed him and now I'll tell you why."

"Got to work late 'cause my alarm was busted
The boss chewed me out and then our office exploded
'Cause it's one of those days, it's just one of those days"

"Me-he-he-helanie
What can the problem be
Sweet Me-he-he-he-helanie
Why won't you go out with me

She lived across the street on the fifteenth floor of the Gilmore building
I saw her in the shower reaching for some soap
I knew she had to be the girl for me
But I'd never be the guy for her, so I died for her
Wish I hadn't bought that telescope"

"Way back when I was just a little bitty boy living in a box under the stairs
In the corner of the basement of the house half a block down the street from
Jerry's Bait shop...You know the place...Well anyway, back then life was going swell and everything was just PEACHY!

Except, of course, for the undeniable fact that every single morning
My mother would make me a big ol' bowl of sauerkraut for breakfast

I
HATE
SAUERKRAUT!"


"If I could make love to a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
I'd search the world over to find one
That had the exact same circumference as you"

...oh wait. :ph34r:

We're gonna get nuked for the holidays."

"Hey, everyone, listen up, your attention if you please
Wanna give you a warning 'cause I found out this morning
About a virus that'll rip the universe apart, so don't open it, 'kay?"

This song is hilarious and so is the video! The video took a while for me to grow on as the animation weirded me out. :P
