A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Don’t Buy It!

The Duke of Yuk got a ukulele for his birthday. He decided he was tired of just singing Beatles songs, and decided to write his own. Hey, how hard can it be? This one has the the urgency of a four-alarm fire, the insistent beat of the poorly-plumbed faucet, and explores the themes of worry, loss, and redemption. Lou Reed wishes he was this good, I’m telling you.

Don’t miss the letter grade at the end. And don’t buy it.

  1. How much? Watching the video cost me a spleen and a funny bone (mine are connected), so I don't want to give a whole lot more.

  2. Is that chez Sippican, Maine? OMG those boys are both precious. I love how big brother indulges little brother. I bet it reminds you of your older brother, no?

  3. An 'F'? That young rascal needs to give himself a B minus if he ever hopes to be President.

    Unless he's not buying it?

  4. Hi Ruth Anne-

    Ruth Anne is one of my original Interpals.

    Yes, that is our house in Maine. Has running water now.

    My older brother was just like that, now that you mention it. He's a much nicer man than I am.

  5. Welcome home! I hope that it is all you wish it to be.

    If your brother is much nicer than you, he must be on the fast-track toward Sainthood, cuz I think you're pretty darn nice.

  6. I swear, at the end of each verse, it sounds like he's singing, "Joan Baez". Maybe he's got some folkie in him?
