Step Off, I’m Doin’ the Hump

posted by on September 11 at 15:00 PM

There’s a Very Special Celeb-Studded Lineup at Laff Hole this week, so you should probably put on pants and get the shit out of your apartment for once (I’m looking at you, mom).

Humpty Hump of Digital Underground, whom you might know as “the one who said ‘just grab ‘em in the biscuits,’” will be hosting tomorrow’s Hole. Humpty is certainly not to be confused with Shock G, “the one who put the satin on your panties,” who will be providing the night’s musical entertainment.

LITERALLY anything could happen.
Will Humpty limp to the side like his legs was broken, shakin’ and twitchin’ kinda like he was smokin’?
Will he use a word that don’t mean nothin’, like looptid?

Also on the bill:
The reliably droll Scott Moran, of PROK.
Billionaire spelunker Andy Haynes, who once (back in high school) told me he was going to kill me and wear my skin.
And out-of-town genius Rory Scovel, who has about a million local comics regularly pooping their pants in admiration.

Wednesday, September 12th
Chop Suey
1325 E Madison St
21+, $5
Doors at 9 pm

All are welcome, including but not limited to white people, black people, Puerto Ricans, and Samoans.

Side note #1: One time, a friend and I met Digital Underground at a house party in Seattle. The members of Digital Underground told us, “You look like the kind of girls who like to read books a lot. And watch Sleepless in Seattle.” (Guilty!)

Side note #2: While writing this Slog post, I asked a friend, “Is there such a thing as too many Humpty Dance references?” Her answer: “No. Except maybe in wedding vows. Or medical diagnoses.”

Mr. tsm, I'm afraid you have herpes type 2. It is my suspicion that you acquired this illness through your travails in a Burger King bathroom."

I just watched the Humpty Dance music video again for old times sake. Awesome.

Shock and Humpty are the same goddamned person. Who writes this crap?

Wait, I'm confused. Next I suppose you'll be telling me that Harrison Ford isn't really the president, a fugitive, AND a space smuggler. Not today, Roger Williams! Pull the wool over somebody else's eyes!

I heard someone say Humpty Dance in my office the other day. I had a Scooby-Doo sized ear perk reaction. I think the phrase "Humpty Dance" has some magical properties that send sound waves through the din to assault your brain.

I had a friend in highschool who would get drunk, recite the whole of the "Humpty Dance" and then throw a blanket over himself and run around doing a tauntaun impression.

Why, yes, I grew up in a very small town. Thanks for asking.
