Best Thing Since Joey-Joe-Joe-Junior

Here you can find Adam Carolla and Norm Macdonald (with an assist from Teresa Strasser and Bryan Bishop) "breaking down the game film" on the Kenny Rogers songs "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" and "Coward of the County."

[it should be noted that those with delicate sensibilities are urged -- begged -- not to listen to these two segments]

Attention, anyone who is ever planning on producing humor for the purposes of entertainment at some point: you can stop. We've got all we need. I'm not sure this is top-able.

This was fantastic; I especially loved Teresa's incredulous "What?!" when "Coward of the County" took its dark turn. But I was completely reduced to tears by Dana Gould on the following program.

Dana is on to talk about Huell Howser, but the entire first segment is wasted discussing Obama, Billy Dee Williams, and some old malt liquor ads. (Very hilarious.)

In the last two segments, they finally get to Huell Howser, breaking down his show on ladybug farmers much as Norm helped them break down the Kenny Rogers songs, and then imagining him as a suicide hotline staffer.

Standard "delicate sensibility" warnings apply, if for some reason you're squeamish about the idea of a giant semi-retarded man-child sexually assaulting a ladybug farmer's pre-teen son.
Wow. The "Ruby" segment is good, but it's not earth-shattering by any means; if they had stopped there, you would've thought "Good bit" and then moved on with your life. But "Coward" man... "Coward" just nails it. And really, "Ruby" helps set that up, so the two have to go hand in hand.

But lordy... the Gatlin Brothers riffing... I was gasping for air.
