Cool Hand Luke Vs. Johnny Evo

You may have heard my version. Here's a much weaker one. I'm sure you'll agree. If not, I may have to post to YouTube and show y'all how it's sung.

This post inspired by religious music here and here.

OK, in this one small area, Evo beats Paul Newman.

So how's your pool-playin', pal?

But can you play banjo?

John Evo said...

Philly - no.

Ex - I think you're just saying that to keep me from posting on YouTube!

In my 20's I played 2 to 3 hours a day, so I was pretty decent. Since then, I've only shot sporadically, and my talents are vastly diminished. Give me a week to practice and I could probably hang in there with an average player.

Don't worry, we'll have more Another Goddamned Ditty soon and you're second verse will be there. I've been saving it for when our podcasts aren't so damn long. So.. hint.. maybe help me out this week.

John Evo said...

Uh... don't want to give anything away... but you might have something else you'll want to use after this week. I've been saving it for the right moment. But it can be used any time.

The Exterminator said...

Well, I don't want to spell out specifically what it's like when we all let Evo sing on the podcast. But let's just call his segment:

Another Goddamned Pity Ditty.

You know you love it. I hear your foot tapping.

Can we just get a podcast of Evo singing? I'd so subscribe to that. Especially if we could get a banjo player involved. I believe (((Billy))) likes his country music; maybe he would have one knocking around. You could duet!

The Exterminator said...

I hear your foot tapping.
Yes, but NOT in rhythm with your singing. I'm tapping my foot in impatience.

Well, we at AGP are considering giving Evo a weekly spin-off. But we're still looking for someone to play Opie. Would you consider dropping your English accent and learning how to pronounce "Cain't we go fishin', Paw?"

I think Yunshui is taking the podcast name a little too seriously.

Ah dun got ta plum' fo'git mah fancy litters an' mah hi' falutin' way o' speakin', jes' so's ah kin play secon' fiddle ta that thir dam' atheist Cap'n Beefheart? Ah'd shoor need -

- *cough*

I'm sorry, I just can't keep that up. My apologies, Ex, but I fear you'll have to import some other Opie-impersonating Englishman. I can do a passable Sean Connery, if that's any good?
