    Hambone is an odd word.
    Is it safe to watch this, Mike? I’m a little scared from the stuff you’ve posted before.

    Still hurting from “DISCONNECT! “? All I can do is apologize. The pain is clearly still with you.

    Now, when I press this buzzer…

    That is one shiny head right there.

    It’s good to see Santa keeps himself busy the other 364 days of the year…

    If you’re looking for something to do once you retire, Mike, I think you can put this in the maybe pile…

    I guess Santa has to do something the rest of the year…otherwise he would go stark raving mad…instead of just raving mad, as he is now.

    I prefer my Juba in stereo.

    Ask Santa and Herbie the Misfit Elf to slap each other to the tune of ‘Poker Face’.

    Instead of hitting a buzzer, why not slap the old Doc?

    We’ll all feel better.

    More evidence of the elves doing all the work and Santa have loads of free time….

    you just can’t find good hambone anymore. I know every time I make soup the lack of good hambone creates a taste disappointment. so thanks Santa for bringing back my homemade soup.

    *zzzzt**gum piece falls out of mouth*
    I’ll tell you what it’s doing! It’s pissing me off!

    Proof that even putting someone in the box doesn’t completely limit their opportunities for self improvement.

    It just goes on and on, doesn’t it?

    Made me think of Mississippi Gary for some reason:

    The ending was like Dueling Banjos in Deliverance. I kept waiting for Ned Beatty to squeal.

    Also, after watching that entire video my typing has taking on a frighteningly rhythmic quality, punctuated by several slaps to my face and inner thighs.

    Do those bruises eventually, heal?

    I lasted :31.

  • 15 Matt on Mar 27, 2009 at 11:46 pm

    See, white people DO have rhythm!

  • 16 Matt on Mar 27, 2009 at 11:58 pm

    Not literally I hope.

    It was the sudden mouth-jug version of Hall Of The Mountain King that sold me. I want this guy to play at my wedding.

  • 18 Ben on Mar 28, 2009 at 5:49 am

    Looks like Santa got into the Nyquil again…

  • 19 Remmie Barrow on Mar 28, 2009 at 10:08 am

    …Just not a lot of rhythm.

  • 20 R.A. Roth on Mar 28, 2009 at 12:42 pm

    Shouldn’t it be HANDbone, or handjive, or handiwipe or handsandwich?

    I love that the older you get the more you get to do odd stuff like this. or if you’re really young. Everyone keeps insisting i’m not young enough and never will be again. I’m enjoying the aging process. (apart from that crease in my forhead that won’t go away)

  • 22 rebisaz on Mar 28, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    HA ha! Mike made you spend 31 seconds watching that!

  • 23 davehop on Mar 29, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    It’s nice to see you still get Prarie Home Companion out there in San Diego. Any chance we can see a 45 minute cut of wine glass music?

  • 24 gojira86 on Mar 30, 2009 at 9:22 am

    That”s one elaborate fit he is having.

  • 25 isis on Apr 3, 2009 at 12:35 pm

    guess the cable provider isn’t reliable up in the north pole, but you’ve gotta do something when you can’t watch your shows.

    don’t think that’d impress the kids come time for “viewings” at the malls though.
    and some of the looks he gives during his performance would make you want to go home and take a shower.

    As do I, as do I.
