“Galactic Mermaid” by Sho Hikino

PURE PROFANITY. This song probably breaks the record for the most swear words ever to be intentionally included in the lyrics. It’s so bad that I can not play it on the live radio stream. It’s impossible to bleep this track.

A listener suggested that we add the original version by The Mermaid Sisters. I was rather shocked when I first heard it. Today I discovered this cover version by Sho Hikino that includes the lyrics. His singing style vaguely reminds me of this band from the 70s/80s called Manhattan Transfer. Great Job!

“Here Kitty Kitty” by Joe Exotic (The Clinton Johnson Band)

July 10 is National Kitten Day. Ogden Nash famously said, “The trouble with a kitten is that it eventually becomes a cat.

Two years ago we were all shut in watching Tiger King. Even I was sucked into a binge watch. at some point we were treated to this song and music video. I’m presenting it here ironically. It’s so bad that it’s good. It’s so wrong that it’s right.

Joe Exotic appears in the video but he is not the real singer. The Clinton Johnson Band were the true music performers. Exotic hired them. I find the whole thing rather amusing. Look at her feeding the tigers. Why is he dressed like a Spanish mission priest?

The idea that Carol Baskin killed her husband and fed him to tigers is preposterous to this writer. Obviously the husband took money that he hid from the IRS and went to Costa Rica to hump young women and live tax free. Carol may or may not be in on it. Somebody should send investigators to Costa Rica.

I am sorry to learn about the animal abuse and murder that occurred. This was NOT OK. Anyone that abused animals should be brought to justice. Just sayin’

“Ad Infinitum” by The Stupendium, Spamton G Spamton’s Theme from Deltarune

I asked people to name a funny techno song. This is one of the first suggestions to slide in. I loved it right away. Salesmen are often pretty slimy. Con artists are even worse. I love it when market mania is mocked. I love satire. The video is great too. More please.

The Stupendium is a musician, animator and content creator, creating weird, wonderful and usually incredibly nerdy songs and animations.

This song is part of a Video series, Toby Fox’s Deltarune. The song is rapped/narrated by a character from the series called Spamton G. Spamton. The character has become a popular subject of memes.

Thank you Stupendium. I can feel the cash vibes flowing through me. I just know FunHouse Radio will soon receive a windfall of investments in the near future!

“Take Me Out to The Overpriced Ballgame” by Carla Ulbrich

Today is National Softball Day. Taking the family out to a softball game will not end up costing you two week’s salary, unlike a baseball game at a major stadium. Carla Ulbrich brings the rage in the form of a hilarious yet hypnotic waltz. This rather sarcastic tune was released on The Fump Vol 81 in 2020.

According to this article from 2021 :

Cost To Attend Wrigley Field: $177.14

  • Two tickets: $118.98
  • Two hot dogs: $13
  • Two beers: $19
  • Parking: $26.16

These were the figures from last year, before the inflationary events. We did not find this year’s figures, but they are probably be even higher.

“One of the truly historic stadiums in baseball history, only Fenway Park has a longer history than Wrigley. But, if you want to enjoy your Old Style and the ivy-covered outfield walls, it’ll cost you. Those Old Styles, for starters, are coming at the highest beer price in baseball. And if you’re thinking you can just skip the concessions stand and not end up spending too much at a Chicago Cubs game, think again — ticket prices are also the highest in baseball.” (Andrew Lisa)

By the way, the image above was found on a page titled “Confessions of a Ballpark Food Vendor” It’s a great read. Check it out.

Would you rather go to a softball game or maybe just watch a baseball game on television? How are you dealing with the high cost of sporting events? Let us know in the comments.
