Yankee Stadium blaring Basement Jaxx's "Where's Your Head At?" during JumboTron blooper reels.
Consider it the electro-house version of "Yakety Sax."

MACHO ANTICS

Have some onion rings while you're at it, you choad.

TRANSCENDENT CONCERT EXPERIENCE
Watching a roomful of complete strangers go absolutely apeshit to the almost violently joyful noise-rock stylings of Dan Deacon.
The phrase "happy hardcore" actually makes sense for the first time ever.

The very existence of the phrase "blog house."
"It used to be Shithouse!"

OBSCURE CINEMATIC REFERENCES
That's right, two shout-outs to the sameRobin Hood: Men in Tights joke in six months.
