Jethro Tull Is To Heavy Metal...
As Al Franken is to comedy. Rick e-mails to inquire:
Are the Grammy Awards totally meaningless?
They must be, because Al Franken has been nominated for a Grammy, Best Comedy Album: "The O'Franken Factor Factor-- The Very Best of the O'Franken Factor." I can't imagine that Al Franken's most rabid fans would fork money over for this. Perhaps farce should be its own category.
The other contenders in the field are "Come Poop With Me," Triumph The Insult Comic Dog; "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents ... America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction," Jon Stewart and The Cast of the Daily Show; "The Funny Thing Is ... ," Ellen DeGeneres; "Live at Carnegie Hall," David Sedaris.
Rick points out that if the voice of the consumer is any indication, there is hope that we will avoid the horror of hearing a Franken acceptance speech:
I should point out that his album is currently at 2,958th place on Amazon.
"Come Poop With Me" by Triumph the Insult dog is at 2,251.
