You guys sound just like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
As mentioned last week, I have begun to assemble the FTI Doofus Squad in the hopes of creating some type of choir that could entertain people over the holidays. Knowing that most groups can sing the simple standard Christmas songs, I thought it might be a good idea to tackle some of the more complex Christmas hymns as a display of our progress in developing our advanced behavioral programs. Apparently, that idea was not exactly original as some other competitive group of deep thinkers has beaten us to it and posted their highly impressive results on Youtube.
It's not easy to perform before a large group in a spontaneous setting. It's also not easy to to have memorable results when the majority of your choir's singing ability is equal to that of Peter Boyle's speaking parts in the Young Frankenstein movie, either. After listening to our attempts to be like the above featured group, I realize that perhaps we need to try something less challenging. We're working on "Up On the Housetop" currently, but, are having some difficulties with it as well. The Misfits have mastered the "Ho, Ho, Ho" part. It's the rest of it that's hard.
