SNZ were goofy but man like Cab Calloway was goofy. Hell the opening to that Stephen Foster video is a direct homage to an old Calloway reel before a Betty Boop cartoon. I really do enjoy that damn band.

Squirrel Nut Zippers were a legitimately great band. I don't understand the weird shade being thrown at them in this article. Granted I'm from south Louisiana and they remind me a lot of the early jazz from New Orleans and some of their members have ties to the musicians in this area, but those albums they put out were the only artifacts associated with the 'swing revival' that hold up in 2016.

She could have at least put on one of her 'good bras'.

I used to work at a photo lab. My boss at the photo lab always had a hare-brained scheme that would undoubtedly put him on the Gravy Train to Money City. One of his big ideas was affixing a camera to a balloon so that contractors could take aerial photographs of their build sites. I was all 1) what? and 2) I'm trying to print out these bridal photos why don't you help me with that instead of working on your garbage balloon. Long story short the photo lab went belly-up about a year after I started working there.

Not even a euphemism. They will literally go back to his apartment and dry rub the shit out of some tenderloin.

Oh man, Hayes Carll is the BEST. The video for 'She Left Me For Jesus' is amazing, and the entire premise of the song just makes me giggle. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhkHG-oKCEU

Also: man this episode isn't funny. And didn't Family Guy already do the same Randy Newman parody?

Do you also feel like the writers of that bit didn't actually watch Persepolis, and instead just wrote a 'parody' based on what they thought the movie was about? Also, I realize calling 2011 Simpsons 'lazy' is redundant but Persepolis is probably the only movie they parodied that I have any emotional investment in.
