Houseboat on the Kentucky River: The Moron Brothers

Two brothers float down a river in a homemade shack, catch catfish, tell bad jokes, and play good blugrass music. This is SO good! (Link sent me by Kevin Kelly.)

“There’s somethin’ about the smell of coffee perkin’,

and coal-oil lamps a-burnin’,

Just reminds me of when I was a kid.

I could come down here and turn the radio on, and light coal-oil lanterns, and build a fire in the stove,

And listen to the Grand Ol Opery on Saturday night.

Man, I’m tellin’ you, makes me feel like I was a kid again…”
