You play me “The Internationale” and I’ll stand and sing?
Sing the anthem?
Huh … wha … anthem?
Yes, it’s an anthem. I’ll stand and sing. You just play it.
I don’t know how to play it.
What’s that guitar good for if you can’t play “The Internationale?”
I can play Blind Lemon Jefferson and Geeshie Wiley.
You fool! Well, do you know “The Song of the Rebels?”
No, but I know the entire Butthole Surfers catalog from 1983 to 1990 — Gibby’s golden age!
Wait, here’s “The Revenge of Anus Presley.” Ah one … ah two … ah—
“After all there are no innocent bystanders … The worst sin of man is to be born.”
