Get Frantic!

2006-05-05 - 1:35 p.m.

Anyone ever hear of The Frantics?

Didn't think so.

They're a Canadian comedy troupe that has put out stuff that Dr Demento has been playing for quite awhile. Ever hear the phrase "boot to the head"? That's from their sketch "Last Will And Temperament", where a lawyer reads his client's will and hands out the bequests: a boot to the head - with sound effect.

In "Roman Numerals" a Roman shopkeeper tries to explain the decimal system to a confused customer:

Customer: "How much is '44' in real numbers?"
Shopkeeper: "XLIV." (spoken: ecks el eye vee)
Customer: "XLIV? Why didn't you just say XLIV? Who can remember 44?"

Well, they've started selling their long-out-of-print albums on CD. Click the link and go shopping.


That's all for now. Enjoy.
