When I was in high school and college I was in a band with my best friends. A lot of the times instead of doing things like practicing or trying to land gigs we would write and record silly comedic novelty songs. They were usually about sex, eating, or sex. We weren't terribly creative but we amused ourselves to no end. The guys would suggest we drop the whole "funk/rock band" thing (it was the '90s) and do filthy comedy songs. For some reason I always balked at the idea as "not artistic enough," whatever that means. I don't really know why I sort of arbitrarily decided I was above such things, but aside from recording ourselves dicking around for our own amusement I never really did much with those song ideas.

Which is a shame, because now I see shit like this all the time and I think, "I could've been a millionaire."
