The only reason that I

would watch the super bowl (yes, I know I purposefully did not capitalize to truly convey my complete lack of enthusiasm for the whole thing.)

One of the commercials for Dockers will be using my favorite Ren Faire/Novelty group the Poxy Boggards. They are hysterical, their tag line is a "drinking group with a singing problem".

Not for the faint of heart - a good portion of their songs are hard R/X rated/and are heavily centered around drinking - so if you click these links make sure you are not at work or and your kids are not around. I will not even play some of their stuff at my Halloween party - not good for mixed company - I mean husband's dad is there!

Seriously, don't even for a moment kid yourselves that "oh, my kids can handle this" - no, no they cannot, and that is brought to point by a very funny song that they start their Ren Faire shows* with a song called "A Warning" aka We say F*ck! (A lot, and that is not even close to the worst of it! - if you are an uptight female, don't even bother, you will be offended...... several times - that said, why are you reading my blog...have I not driven you all off yet?! :D )

That, of course, is not the song that Dockers will be using....they are using a very funny song called "I Wear No Pants" - the song is quite simple, made up of several verses that are the same lines just in several "languages" or something resembling other languages......some of those words sound a bit suspicious to me :D

Their CDs have been the soundtrack for prop building and drinking at the Graveyard for years. I get giddy each time they release a new CD - positively giddy!!! Husband and I have corrupted a lot of people (I mean turned people on to) with their music....I even remember a friend of mine getting their catalog for someone as a wedding present. Is she not awesome!?

So imagine my utter excitement when that same friend (Babbling Banshee) sent me a link to a music video of that song with news that it would be used during the Super Bowl!!! WooHoo....had to email my other friend Jason (Yamfu) immediately.

Here is a link to their other videos

Not all of their songs are naughty, they actually do great versions of many classic sea shanties and drinking songs. Their versions of The Grey Funnel Line, Whiskey Your the Devil, Rolling Down to Old Maui, and Finnegan's Wake are all tradition songs delivered perfectly with love and dedication. As fun as they are to listen to - their live show is a party - I would go so far as to call it life changing :D

If you at all think you are going to want them....I would order them now...I imagine by Monday, they will be almost impossible to get.

Oh, and no, I am not watching the Super Bowl, I am doing what I do every year and watch the ads on YouTube!

*yes, frog queen goes to Ren Faires.....grew up in Southern California.....big one down there. We still travel to them from time to time....I know, really, it is any excuse for me to put on a corset and cinch it up so that my boobs are touching my chin and I cannot breath, drink lots of mead, and talk dirty to complete strangers! All in fun, I take husband with me. He is big guy at 6'2" with long blonde hair and a claymore strapped to his one bothers me :)
