Morning DJs make my head throb at the best of times, but Pete Powers on 99.9 The Buzz just ascended to the next level of clueless. Along with the usual arsenal of sound effects and out-of-context film quotes, he now plays a lame recording of someone saying “Wackity, shmackity doo!” after his shitty jokes. It’s a reference to Patton Oswalt’s second stand-up comedy album, Werewolves and Lollipops; I’ve included a clip below where the relevant bit starts about halfway through.
You see, the WHOLE FUCKING POINT of the bit is that you can’t transform unfunny things into funny things by including lame voice-overs. And no, in this case turning to self-referential ironic mockery doesn’t work either. The DJ’s failure to comprehend this is just so . . . full of fail.
