Funny: King Crimson
- A lot of the songs on Lizard.
- "Cirkus" has "'Worship!' cried the clown, 'I am a TV' ... bareback ladies have fish."
- "Indoor Games" has "Each afternoon you train baboons to sing"
- In "Happy Family", just about every lyric cracks me up.
- From the title track, "Bolero: The Peacock's Tale" - After a Sweet Dreams Fuel laden intro, the band proceeds to reprise the previous section, the moody "Prince Rupert Awakes", as a Rat Pack-styled swing.
- "Happy With What You Have To Be Happy with", oh god...
- The lyrics to "Neurotica", which is a bit like the classic Monty Python's Flying Circus skit "Mr. Smoke-Too-Much" on a crate of Red Bull:
"Good morning, it's 3am in this great roaring city full of garbage eaters ravaging parking spots beneath my plaza window I see cheetahs in their tight skins and tired heels all-night hippo in the diner crossing the street swarthy heards of young Impala flambastic gibbon even a struggling monza and over there that brilliant head ornament on that Japanese macaque but look closely at the hammerhead hand in hand with the mandrill, it's a sight you're unlikely to see anywhere else on the planet..."
- "Indiscipline" has in its spoken-word narration "I repeat myself when under stress, I repeat myself when under stress, I repeat myself when under stress..."
- Back in the 1970s, some of Robert Fripp's onstage announcements (as documented on live albums like The Night Watch and The Great Deceiver) are extremely dry, the more so because of his mild-mannered West Country voice.
- Robert Fripp's reaction to a stressed out Adrian Belew kicking him out of a studio during the Beat sessions: "so much for bring me the leader of King Crimson."
- "Elephant Talk" contains some of the funniest lyrics ever written. It also helps that Adrian Belew sounds like David Byrne from Talking Heads.
