So I says to him, I says, "hey, you better sit down if you're gonna wave at me, I'm supposed to eliminate any standing waves". But seriously, what's up with tails out? I though we were going to a strip club but it was just a bunch of backwards music.


Props to Wendy Carlos for the standing waves joke. Hell, she should get the gig.

So a penguin walks up to another penguin and says "Hey, looks like you're wearing a tuxedo", to which the other penguin replies, "Yeah, I am."

It's not really music-related, unless these are rock star penguins I'm referring to.

What's the difference between a producer and a football?



Most people put on a helmet before they kick a football.
