boot to the head

When I was a kid, I used to listen to the Dr. Demento show, a radio show that played novelty songs, sketch comedy, and all kinds of crazy stuff. I used to huddle up in my bed with secret headphones on and listen to Wierd Al Yankovic ('dare to be stupid!') and Barnes & Barnes ('I took a fish head out to see a movie, didn't have to pay to get it in!').

Some of the funniest stuff he played, though, was the sketch comedy of The Frantics, a Canadian comedy troupe around way before Kids in the Hall. First there was 'Last Will and Temperament', which I couldn't find on the internet (or in print on CD). It's about the reading of a will where a rich man leaves 'a boot to the head' to all of his relatives and leaves all of his money to his cat.

Then, they came out with 'Ti Kwan Leep', another sketch about booting people in the head. I liked it so much I actually did it as a play in 7th grade.

I was pleased to find it floating around on the internet.

Download it (1.1mb) in .mp3 format from my secret underground server and listen to it under the covers at 2am. It's better that way.


Ohhhh I was also a Dr. Demento fiend back in the day. Ti Kwan Leep is awesome indeed. I did a little looking and found Last Will and Temperament in MP3 format out there...
