Knock-Off “Muppets” go metal to tell the world about their arithmetic angst. You know it’s frustrating when you can only count to four (unless you are a punk-rock drummer). The band called Psychostick made this hilarious parody of of “Bodies” by Drowning Pool. Rock on!

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.
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)
Celebrate National Cheese Day with this classic cartoon and song from Pinky & The Brain. Pinky points out that there are so many different kinds of cheeses in the world that it’s actually quite bizarre. The song itself is sung to the tune of “Semper Fidelis”, the official march of the United States Marine Corps.

Happy Birthday to Mike Myers, one of our favorite funny guys. Myers turns 59 today, assuming they use the same calendar up in Canada. (just kidding)
The second Austin Powers movie is considered by most to be the best of the three that have been released so far. The Spy Who Shagged Me arrived in 1999.
Look at how young Seth Green was in the video clip. Who knew he would go on to be such a bastard. (Just kidding, Robot Chicken rocks by the way.) Sadly, “Mini-Me” Verne Troyer has since died, RIP.
The movie and the soundtrack album both feature this parody on Will Smith’s take of “Just The Two Of Us”. The album was re-released on vinyl for record store day 2020. We have the original CD version here at the station but the cover art looks better on the LP shown.
The song was first made famous by The Great Bill Withers.

Have you ever walked into someone’s bedroom and became immediately aware that they had been farting all night and they are badly in need of ventilation? That’s happened to me this morning.
Or maybe you got stuck in an elevator full of strangers and someone let a ripe stink bomb rip like chemical warfare. Perhaps you got stuck waiting in a long line and you really could not run away or risk embarrassing the random funky person. Or maybe you were like me and quietly rolled out a stench grenade while handing money to a poor cashier.
If you’ve had any experience with third party flatulence, you will find this track relatable. I remember hearing this on morning-drive radio while heading to high school back in 1990. It’s actually a quazi-parody of MC Hammer’s “Let’s Get It Started”. Compare for yourself!
“Somebody Farted” was released both on a 12″ EP and on a full length album. I happen to own the EP. Here’s a photo. The lead single was actually “Hair or Weave”. In my opinion “Somebody Farted” is a lot funner.
Have you been experiencing pain lately when loigging into your Crypto Wallet or 401K dashboard? It may help to know that you don’t actually loose anything until the act of selling. If that doesn’t make you feel better maybe this track will.
Devo Spice published this track on The FuMP Volume 85 compilation. It does not appear on any of his albums. It is a parody of “All The Way Up” by Fat Joe & Remy Ma ft. French Montana & Infared
Stonk is a deliberate misspelling of stock (meaning “a value share of a corporation which can be traded as an investment”). The term was coined in a 2017 meme. It’s often used sarcastically to imply a vague understanding of the securities market.
Someone apparently used a VHS to record an episode of VH1 Behind The Music, including commercial breaks, as it aired on cable TV in 1999. The episode focuses on Weird Al Yankovic and treats us to interviews with Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), Dr Demento, Doug Feiger (The Knack) and The Weird One, himself.
Many years later someone attempted to transfer the video cassette recording to digital. It seems to have been captured at slower and glitchy frame rates. The contrast is low so everything is grayed out. The sound quality is basic to bad. You can probably find the DVD in a public library if you really want. The YouTube title says “High Quality”. This is a lie.
Still, this beast is watchable and entertaining. It helps if you are a fan of His Weirdness. Furthermore, it’s fascinating because of the commercials. It’s like a time capsule.
Do you think a Tampon or a maxi-pad could feel like a diaper? Do you remember what it feels like to wear a diaper? Well apparently this was a huge problem in 1999 and it needed to be addressed on VH1. Watch for the commercial in the video.
But why would a feminine hygiene product manufacturer want you to know about Weird Al? They didn’t. At the time there was a pretense that the companies running advertisements during live broadcasts were sponsoring the content that it interrupted. This was a carry-over from old time radio and early television.
We cover Yankovic a lot around here and his music is always in rotation on the live stream. We’ve even created a T-Shirt design in his honor. Order one today!
