Have you seen my D***?

Rude Dadaists stick “dicks” where no “dick” should go

It’s a phenomenon of sorts. Mind you, if I know about it then it’s probably totally over. This pair of self-declared absurdists have recorded a huge collection of cover versions with the word “my dick” inserted at various points. As often with these things, it’s the obsessive nature of the piece that makes it so funny. Who on earth has the time to record an entire version of Do They Know It’s Christmas — impersonations and all — with those two words planted where they clearly don’t belong? It hardly needs to be said that the Bono bit is the best. “Tonight, thank God it’s my dick instead of you!” I also heartily recommend My Dick Street in which they sing the sax solo from Gerry Rafferty’s similarly titled tune using just the operative words.
