Puritus Interuptus?

Okay, I’ve been sitting on this for days, ever since the news first broke, hoping I could come up with something really funny to say to add to the humor. Unfortunately, all I’ve been able to come up with is this question:

Am I the only one who, because of this guy… Now has an even greater appreciation for the comedic genius of this guy?

The Disappearing Railroad Blues

While searching for a follow-up to my last post, I ran across this wonderful collection of clips from Alice’s Restaurant (the movie) set to the full-length version of the song.
