We can’t stop him, folks.

In one of Iris Murdoch’s novels, the main character, an author of pretentious “literary fiction,” admits on his death bed, “I wish I had written Treasure Island.”

Well, I wish I had written these three blog posts. I gather that my tastes in humor put me in a minority, but I consider them to be absolutely perfect. This is James Joyce level talent, folks. Quite possibly the best thing ever to come out of the Rwandan Internet.

I know most of my readers are much too classy to read Andrew Anglin, so here are the links to these perfect posts you might otherwise never see.

Agreed - absolutely brilliant, surreal humour.

But you and I differ in an important respect: you take notice of song lyrics, while I very seldom do.

So, although I had heard the Duke of Early song multiple times over the years (especially in the Darts cover version), I had not taken any notice at all of what was being said in the verses. Therefore, I had to backtrack and re-listen before I could appreciate this. It was worth it.

Absolutely brilliant indeed. I also had to refresh on the lyrics. I'm glad I did.

Easy Without You

This is one of the most seamless mashups I've ever heard.
