Abbott & Costello at Blockbuster

At McSweeney's, Chris Gavaler's riff on Who's on First?

Nice.

Reminds me of a similar bit -- based on the names of rock bands -- done by The Credibility Gap (Richard Beebe, Harry Shearer, David L. Lander, and Michael McKean) in the seventies. Go to this page on Shearer's site and scroll down to the "Who's on First" link for the Real Audio file.

And I see that a site called whos-on-first.com has audio, video (!) and text of the original Bud Abbott and Lou Costello routine.

Hi, I’m out searching & surfing for the latest information on "netflix rental" and found your blog. Although this isn't exactly what I am looking for, it caught my attention and I just read this post. I see now why Google pointed me here while I was searching for "netflix rental" related stuff. I'm glad I stopped long enough to read your posts -- thanks.
