Editor's note: a football comedy album! Hell, here in Detroit football is a comedy of errors. No joke. But in honor of the start of the exhibition season here you go. Outside of the half dozen or so skips on the first side there are bad football-related jokes, racist sketches and lots of canned laughter. All perfect ingredients for a late-night World's Funniest Videos episode. There are a few laughs in here but you have to listen all the way through to catch them. Bring your stick-em because you'll need it.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
