Kind Of Blue

The Aristocrats is very funny, which isn’t surprising considering it features 100 comedians retelling the world’s dirtiest joke. The storytellers have such zeal for this crude tradition and it’s fun to compare attempts at Most Clever Analysis.

Slate has some background on the Behind The Joke. You can go to to watch South Park’s profane version (Win Media … make sure you have headphones).

The doc’s producer Penn Jillette tells Time Out New York:

The whole idea came from a discussion of bebop. In a very real way, it’s a bebop film — and the jazz people that I know who have seen it get it much faster than the comedy people.

In the movie he also makes some analogies to Coltrane, but don’t worry … I’ll spare you more jazz. Instead, let’s celebrate obscenity with Dirt McGirt. This Elton John/Kiki Dee cover has appeared on some mix tapes since ODB recorded it with Macy Gray last year. Earlier this month it was released on 12″. Dirty sounds delightfully wasted. Enjoy:
