{TMBG start to play rock music.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing} I'm tellin' bad jokes now,
Really bad jokes now,
Tell a bad joke to me,
Why did something cross the road,
I don't know,
Make it up,
Bad jokes, come on,
I'm really great at tellin bad jokes,
I'm tellin bad jokes now,
The ones you've heard a million times,
The kind of jokes that little kids tell ya,
Why was I stapled to the chicken?
I don't know man,
I wasn't stapled to any chicken!

FLANSBURGH: {yells} Nice belt!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Nice belt man!
Bad jokes,
Bad bad jokes,

{They stop playing and singing.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Solid! That's pretty good, guys. Layin' it down back there.

BELLER: Nice belt!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: On the skins— {floor tom hit interrupts his train of thought} I— {floor tom hit}

BELLER: {whispers} Nice belt!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {whispers to himself} Nice belt...? {to Beller} ...Nice belt indeed!
