Then again, the Melbourne trolley would kill you just as effectively.





An aside, the song is by Tangerine Kitty, but it sounds EXACTLY like Ricky Lee Jones (sheesh, I am dating myself).

That is a really bizarre CSA, ! I've watched it a few times and have the song stuck in my head!

The dancing characters crack me up!

I know right...the characters are so funny, they just make you want to get up and dance

The kidney dancing makes me laugh the most...some cool moves there
