I won’t make it a habit of hoisting what I find funny on you all too much, but if you’ve never seen or heard of Flight of the Conchords, you have to watch this clip.
There are four segments that make me crack up everytime:
- “Junkies with monkey disease
who’s touching this monkeys, please.”
- “What…what is wrong with the world today”
- “But what’s the real cost ’cause these sneakers don’t seem much cheaper
why are we paying so much when you got them made by little slave kids
What’s your overheads”
- “Can someone please remove these cutleries from my knees
Despite the fact that the topics are really serious ones (especially the little slave kids), I can’t help but give a side-splitting laugh. These guys are an awesome example of unbound musical creativity. I’m so envious.

Thanks for your thoughtful comment on my recent Wise Bread post. It’s amazing how both rationality and civility go right out the window when people think you’re criticizing their automobile-based lifestyle.
This song is hilarious. Thanks for bringing the group to my attention!

Holy cripes, this is awesome. I’ve read many reviews of this duo and their show, and now I get it. Thanks for sharing it with us!

I’m glad you both enjoyed the video. The hard part is now when I see something jacked up in the world and think “what is wrong with the world today?,” I see Jemaine mumbling. I guess a silent chuckle is more therapeutic than frustration?
