Danny Boy

This has been making the rounds, at Crooked Timber and elsewhere, but is worth posting not just in honour of St. Patrick’s day but because it’s one of the highlights of television comedy: the Leprechaun Brothers (Animal, the Swedish Chef and Beaker) singing, if that’s the word, the classic lamentation “Danny Boy”. A tearful tune has never been rendered funnier. Especially delightful is the way Animal’s voice cracks when he mourns “Danny Boy, boy oh boy.”
