Added DiffLines:

* For fans of BlackComedy, there's "Everyone's Gone To The Movies", a song about an ephebophile who invites the neighborhood kids to his house to show them porno movies. What takes it into being especially funny is the chorus, from the point of view of the clueless parents:
-->Everyone's gone to the movies!\\
Now we're alone at last!

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Janine''': Maybe it's the skeevy look in your eye, or that your mind has turned to applesauce, the dreary architecture of your soul-
-->'''Dupree''': But what is it exactly turns ya off?

* During live performances of "Hey Nineteen," the band will vamp for a bit while Donald Fagen tells a [[ShaggyDogStory long-winded tale]] which eventually culminates in a reference to tequila. Specifically, that ''special'' kind of tequila. Which Donald can't quite remember the name of. Maybe the backup singers know.

* The live version of "Bodhisattva" from 1974 that was put on the B-side of both "Hey Nineteen" and "Time Out of Mind" and later reissued on the ''Citizen Steely Dan'' box set. Or more specifically, the introduction. They had one of their roadies, Jerome Aniton, deliver it. He had a bit of a fondness for alcohol. He was also under the impression that he was working for [[IAmNotShazam a singer named Steely Dan (or Stevie Dan)]], despite being constantly corrected. Highlights from his two and half minute speech:

* Their website contains many pieces from Becker and/or Fagen that are as funny as many of their songs. Those [[http://www.steelydan.com/hof.html Rock and Roll Hall of Fame]] pleas from the 1990's mentioned on the main entry are a good example.

* The pretzel cart on the cover of ''Pretzel Logic'' has a misspelled sign advertising "Hot Pretzles." One wonders if this was why Becker and Fagen chose that particular pretzel cart, considering their general meticulousness.
* Quite a bit of their songs' lyrics. Examples will [[WikiMagic eventually be listed]].

** Walter Becker's bantering during concerts is generally hilarious.
*** It's not just Walter -- at the concert I went to, Donald referred to the (2013) tour as "Mood Swings -- and I can't remember the subtitle; something about pancakes." (The tour was called "Mood Swings -- Eight Miles to Pancake Day," which is pretty funny in itself.)
* Most of the songs on their "latest" (released in 2003) album, ''Everything Must Go'', are at least chuckle-inducing.
