Musical Comedy

There are two ways one could, conceivably, torture me. One would be to serve me a sandwich of Little Smokies with a side of pineapple. The other would be to force me to listen to musical comedy.

Outside of the occasional “Weird Al” Yankovic song – and I do mean occasional – I pretty much never like musical comedy. A good deal of it is too cute and/or rhyme-y to be amusing to me. Whenever we’re watching standup and a guitar comes out, I know it’s time for me to tune out.

I’m still willing to entertain the idea that maybe I just haven’t found the “right” musical comedian yet. But I think it’s a really slim chance. Musical comedy just isn’t funny to me.

Except for Gwen Stefani. She’s hilarious.

Have you ever heard of the Arrogant Worms? Or, how about, Bob Rivers? They just might change your mind.

You need Sparks and Ween. They’re the tops.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
