And that’s why I can’t go for that

Someone just reminded me of my favorite scene from The Mighty Boosh. It’s that scene in season 3 where former zookeeper Bob Fossil, now the manager of a club called the Velvet Onion, says, “And that’s why I can’t go for that.” I know that probably doesn’t sound funny, but it is. I think it’s one of the most brilliant scenes ever captured on video. I was going to challenge people to disagree, but, truth is, if you don’t like it, I don’t want to hear from you. I’m in too good of a mood right now.

And, for what it’s worth, I can’t look at Noel Fielding without thinking of my friend Tim. I think that he and I would have been great in an American remake of The Might Boosh as Vince and Howard. Or, at least we could have dressed like them at Halloween.

    Gonna have to try that dance the next time I’m looking for an excuse to pass on sex. It’ll be like the anti-mating dance.

    What version of the song is this? I’m loving it with the bass amped up. Very housy.
