Bozo the Ogre
Okay, tonight at Cafe Mundi had to be one of the most fun performances we've had. I'd see it was easily one of the Top 10.

So what was so special about it? Well for one we introduced a new Tolkien song, "The One Ring of Hope" to a very enthusiastic audience. But what topped it off for me was when we had a request for a song about an Ogre. Inspired by this weekend's success at improv songwriting, I came up with a song about an Ogre, a flower, and coffee.

I nearly busted a gut. I laughed so hard after that song that I couldn't perform "An Irish Lullaby at all! So we played "Big Strong Man, and it wasn't much better. I laughed throughout the song and kept breaking up that Andrew had to take over the vocals.

Yes, I think "Bozo the Ogre" has been formally immortalized. Now if Andrew will play it again? That's the ultimate question!
