"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

I will give a small prize to anyone who can identify the origin of this musical snippet. Be warned this prize may include a hug, whether you want one or not.


Hint: this is from an album I consider the only artistically successful musical work about U.S foreign policy.

Your self-promotion is shameless.

Going to listen to it, just to remember how it was so long, long ago.
"The President is driving us
and NONE of us will make a fuss
this bus
is off

I'm asking my readers to help out, but like most of the lefty blogosphere they're a bunch of soulless baby boomers who are all twelve albums behind on Springsteen's output.

Sounds like John Lennon clowning in the silly voice he used while goofing around on Don't Be Cruel (which can sometimes be heard at Beatles-A- Rama radio).

I tried to post something earlier, but was bounced out by the server. Now I forgot what I was going to write, so it probably was whatever I forgot.
