I was delighted this past Sunday during Family Guy, when “King Stewie” and Griffin Peterson (Peter) decided to settle their differences the old fashioned way: with a talent show straight from Revenge of the Nerds. Classic!
An instant classic from The Lonely Island crew. The Lonely Island is Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone also known as the team behind the SNL Digital Shorts that have become beacons of funny in a sea of mediocre (save for this year). The team is is releasing thier debut record INCREDIBAD on February 10th.
It’s time to spread the good word of Bacon Shoe. Out of Kansas City, Missouri, this humorous hip-hop trio is made up of: Lethal-D – the MC whose favorite subjects are disease and sex. ‘Toine – the hypeman of the group who is known to refer to himself as “Cocktopus” (for reasons I’ll let you find out for yourself). And last but not least, half-dog, half-paramedic Mr. Ruggles, who instead of taking the deejay role on stage, prefers to cook bacon on a skillet.
We all need a laugh from time to time, and Bacon Shoe delivers – in that immature, crass, and tasteless sort of way. “Absurd experimental disgusto horror rap”. Right up my alley (hey, I still listen to Howard Stern every day).
Not for kids. And Mom, please move on to the next post.
