ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Rocky and Balls's "Girls Like Boys With Skills" is probably the dirtiest double-entendre ukulele ditty since George Formby sang "With My Little Ukulele In My Hand."
But allow me to temper my above criticism with the following statement:
The song (and the duo) are going to be a hit.
this is a very engaging performance. these girls have got skills and remarkable ones at that.
They have a marvelous sense of stage presence, timing, humor and sex appeal. This is the complete package and I predict very big things for them.
Life is terribly unfair. Girls can giggle at their own dirty jokes and it’s cute, but when boys do it, it turns into Beavis and Butthead.
Well I’m off practising my nose picking skills.
Cutest thing I’ve seen in a long while! Bravo, girls!
I sent a link to this video off to my daughters’ boyfriends. May they be skillful…
Topped only by the Chamonix poster in the background … one of my favourite places in the world.
Is it safe to say these gals are hawt?
I thought that was very cute! Good for them!
Do I need to have ALL of those skills?… wouldn’t be enough with… like half of them?
so the moral of this is…. girls like Boy Scouts.
They’re unlikely to be 17 or any indeed kind of teenagers – they’ve both got Master’s degrees in songwriting from Bath Spa University and are likely to be 21 at least.
I love Rocky and Balls. This song was stuck in my head all night and is still there this morning…
Wait a fucking minute, she’s 17?!
This was probably recorded on about July 7th, which was Ringo (Starr)’s 70th birthday.
I had the exact same reaction for two seconds.
Man all I have is nunchuku skills, bow hunting skills and computer hacking skills.
Boys like girls with innuendo-makin’ skills.
Innuendo? In her endo!
@W. James Au: They are talking about a third MALE person, Ringo.
Okay, yes. YES.
I wish I new girls like you when I was 17.
Wait I did! Lucky me.
Keep up the good work, you crack me up every time.
(Granted this one made me go change into my pedobear t-shirt, but I’ll get over it).
If I am to remember correctly, the Ringo Starr comments are related to a year or two ago when the former Beatles drummer posted a video starting with “Peace and love, peace and love,” and then proceeded to ask fans to stop sending him letters and photos to be signed. He chalked it up to the fact that he had “too much to do”.
Said video can be viewed here:
My Loins! My Loins!
“I predict very big things for them.”
Now that’s a double-entendre.
My Dark Passenger is having a 4chan moment while we watch this.
Sorry, no dirty little ditty will ever top “Let Me Play With Your Poodle”
That’s the greatest thing I’ve ever heard.
Cool! …but a touch Bourgeois.
Give me some Light Crust Doughboys.
That’s hardly a double-entendre! I like this one:
well, but does it involve a ukulele? DOES IT?
Very well done! :) And talented too.
But the one on the right is trying way too hard to be cute. We know you’re dying to be discovered but it becomes genuinely grating after 2 minutes.
They’ve been “Discovered.”
I’ve got those skills and it got me the girl, and I don’t know a damn thing about how to lay pipe.
…/if you should see a girl on the street/
/well maybe you might think she is sweet/
/but if you wawna tickle her treat/
/now really what should you do?/
/dut-dut-dut-dut doo doo/
/Don’t nevah let her know you are smart/
/The universe is nowhere to start/
/Ya gotta play it straight from the heart/
/she gwine de-nun-ci-ate yoouu/…
/…now maybe you might think i am rude/
/and maybe you might think i am crude/
/and maybe this approach i have spewed/
/is not the one for you/
/dut-dut-dut-dut doo doo/
/But believe me later on you’ll find/
/as you impress her with your mind/
/that you will just be left behind for a wiser fool./
–Frank Zappa, “Find Her Finer”
Not bad, but all must pay homage to the master: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKZcLEY2qEY
“When I was a wee little boy…”
One day Mark is gonna find a violin under his daughter’s bed and he’ll just flip out like “How are you supposed to get on youtube with this? I didn’t pay for ten years of ukulele lessons for you to sit in some ORCHESTRA CHAIR! Think of your future!”
