Lyrics

This batch of idiocy struck me and I had to get it out. Jason encouraged me to do it. It's his fault.


Mr. Telephone Man
There’s something wrong with these lines
When my guests call up the show
I can’t hear them opine

Mr. Telephone Man
Until we fix these lines
My useless producer
Can’t book Wilbon or Bob Ryan

The steam was coming off my head and from my earholes
So I called up AT&T
A guy from Madagascar asked me for my passcode
But I didn’t have those digits readily

Mr. Telephone Man
I’m going to lose my mind
And rant on the radio
Until heads are stuck on pikes

Mr. Telephone Man
I’m gonna ask you one more time
Are you gonna fix the problem
For this tangerine Luddite?

The best part is that your last set of lyrics is really good and well-thought out.

I am as charming to my family as I am on this website - does that answer your question? My son started calling me the Big Teaser when he was about 4 (he's now 20).

is there a backstory to this club that you might be able to share?

My nieces founded a club about 5 years ago called the "We Hate Uncle Brad Club," whose motto is: Uncle Brad, It's All His Fault! And you're all welcome to join! I insisted on being the club president when they told me!

This is perfect. I agree with Jason, it's the best way. Also, I love that you and jason have started blaming each other in the credits at the beginning of all your jingles.

i was going to patch in the Orakpo clip and chop that up too but I was sick of slicing out pieces of sound at midnight or whenever I was finishing this up.

I love when the question posed to me is this easy. Of course I encouraged this! It's a great idea - ridiculous in the best way.

I am so glad I didn't have a drink with me when I played this. Gasping for air, spasm of laughs, tears forming from the corner of my eyes. Perfection.

THIS IS A LAUGH RIOT! From idea to execution, this just kills. AND how great of Wilbon to lend you his phone to record it. Yeeeeaaaah!
