Who's on First?

by Chris Gavaler at McSweeney's.

(A CUSTOMER steps up to a video-store counter with a stack of videos.)

CASHIER: Hi. Did you find everything you wanted?

CUSTOMER: (Handing over membership card.) Yes, thanks. (Pause.) When is this one due back?

CASHIER: The day after tomorrow.

CUSTOMER: Yeah, when's it due back?

CASHIER: The day after tomorrow.

CUSTOMER: Yes. The Day After Tomorrow.

CASHIER: Right.

CUSTOMER: Right. When's it due back?

CASHIER: The day after tomorrow.

CUSTOMER: I mean the movie. The Day After Tomorrow. When is it due? ...

Finish it here. Thanks to Dodger Thoughts reader Robert Fiore for the link.

Back when the Credibility Gap (starring Harry Shearer, Richard Beebe, David L. Lander and Michael McKean) were doing daily news parodies and skits on the old KRLA, they did a bit based on "Who's On First?" about a concert featuring The Who, The Guess Who and Yes.

They'll be doing variations on this bit on Mars.

OT, but FYI there's a nice article about Ross Newhan's son David in today's Wash Post.

I was hoping for a mention of Silent Movie, myself.

And isn't The Band a central character in the music version?
