Funny: The Frantics
  • Their comedy skit "Ti Kwan Leep", in which a master attempts to teach the titular martial art to a group of novices. The whole thing is awesome, but here's a sample:
    Ed Gruberman: Listen shrimp, are you gonna show me some fancy moves, or am I gonna start wipin' the walls with you?
    Master: Ed Gruberman, you fail to grasp Ti Kwan Leep. Approach me that you might see.
    Ed: Alright, finally some action.
    Master: Observe closely class. Boot to the head. [wh-thunk]
    Ed: Oww! You booted me in the head!!
    Master: You are lucky, Ed Gruberman. Few novices experience so much of Ti Kwan Leep so soon.
    Ed: Ow, oh, my head...
    Master: Now we continue.
    Ed: Hey! Hey, I wasn't ready! Come and get me now shorty, come on, are ya chicken?
    Master: Boot to the head. [wh-thunk]
    Ed: Ow! Okay, now I'm ready, come on, try it now.
    Master: Boot to the head. [wh-thunk]
    Ed: Mind if I just lie down here for a minute?
    • And later:
    Master: Have you learned nothing from the lesson of Ed Gruberman?
    Student: Yes Master, I have learned two things. First, that anger is a weapon only to one's opponent.
    Master: Very good.
    Student: And secondly — get in the first shot. Boot to the head! [whoosh]
    Master: You missed.
  • And from the similarly themed "Last Will & Testament", about the reading of Mr. Muldoon's will: "And another for Jenny and the wimp." [SMACK] "Ow!" [SMACK] "Ow!".
