That's a fine piece of music, and I like the animation as well. Aaaaaand, that's basically everything that could possibly be said about this post. Goodnight, ever'body!

I laughed. I cried. It became a part of me.

I'm guessing the animation was slapped onto a live recording.

Whenever I hear a live audience that's indistinguishable from a laugh track I automatically think "The Cosby Show." When I combine that with a singing penis, I envision the scene where the entire family performs a musical number ("Please don't Go" or something like that), except now Rudy is now a phallic siren. And then I decide to shotgun more cheap beer.

When you mention "Rudy", I automatically think of "The Cosby Kids" cartoon, and not actually Rudy, but that kid with the weird pink hat pulled over his face with eyeholes in it, giving "phallic siren" nightmarish overtones.

I'd shotgun a cheap beer myself if I weren't at work.

I like it, cute. Reminds me of this song [Real, sorry] by Christine Lavin, somehow.

Yep, it came from the (hilarious) syndicated morning radio program The Bob and Tom Show, on which Rodney Carrington is often a guest. It can also be found on Gimme an 'F', one of their compilation albums.

I would like to add that dorayaki is delicious.

I'm guessing the animation was slapped onto a studio recording with a laugh track.

That was funny... sorta! Did anyone see Tuesdays (11/4) Daily Show on Comedy Central? There was an annimated piece about mid-term elections that was even funnier. Wish I had a copy of it.

Ummm, that's NOT a laugh track. Those guys (Bob and Tom) really do laugh like that through everything that is recorded during their show.

Which is yet another reason they probably use a laugh track, internal. Laughing constantly like that is not as easy as it sounds, so lots of radio shows use laugh tracks heavily on a day-to-day basis to add just the right note of morning zoo hilarity. I'll bet a lot of folks get fooled. I'd have to listen to the show to be sure about this particular case, but those laughs sounded way too forced and crisp to be spontaneous.
