What the Hell is that sound?
Blog Guy, can you answer a theological question for me?
I don’t see why not.
Do you think there’s music in Hell?
I know for certain there is, and I have a very clear vision of what the big orchestra there sounds like. It’s not like anything you’d find on earth.
Oh! Tell me, tell me!
I’m getting scared, Blog Guy. What else?
Um, the whole front section is filled with ukuleles, like the one this really rich guy is kissing in the photograph.
And at the very back of Orchestra from Hell there are vuvuzela players, droning on as far as the eye can see.
But blog guy, what grotesque cacophony could all those instruments possibly be playing together down in the fiery pits of eternal human agony?
Please, do I need to state the obvious? They’re playing “Moon River.” The long version.
Oh my GOD! But then, who sings it?
Hey pal, it’s Hell. The karaoke machine is always on…
