Peter Pops: Let’s give it up for Timone! so much emotion in that young man every single week! Alright — if you’ve just arrived, I’m your host, Peter Pops. Welcome to Karaoke — and I hope you can carry… a tune. Okie?

Voice: You used that joke last week!

Peter Pops: [ he chuckles ] It’s Random Draw Night, which means it’s not first-come, first-sing. So, next up — and I hope that you are ready — [ he reaches into the fishbowl and pulls out a slip of paper ] And… okay. There’s gum on this. Who did this?

[ cut to the Two A-Holes sitting in their seats chewing gum ]

Male A-Hole: That’s us, bro! [ turns to Female A-Hole ] Ready to sing, babe?

Female A-Hole: [ annoyed ] Yeah!

[ Cut to a slide which looks like a karaoke screen with title captions on it ]

Announcer: [ cheerfully ] And now… Two A-Holes do Karaoke.

[ dissolve back to karaoke bar ]

Peter Pops: Alright. Looks like we got a couple first-timers. You know me — I’m Peter Pops. And you are?

Male A-Hole: [ into the mike ] Bored.

Female A-Hole: It’s so stupid in here.

Male A-Hole: Yeah. Do something to make it SUCK less.

Peter Pops: [ chuckles ] Alright, I’m trying. Um — do you have a song that you would like to sing?

Male A-Hole: You got a song, babe?

Female A-Hole: Where are our outfits?

Male A-Hole: Yeah, where do we change?

Peter Pops: No. No. I didn’t fire anybody.

Male A-Hole: Oh, they quit, huh?

Peter Pops: No. No. Nobdy quit. There’s no band.

Male A-Hole: What, are they on strike? Is there a union thing?

Peter Pops: [ aggravated ] There’s no band!

Male A-Hole: Was it a plane crash, like “La Bamba”? Aaliyah? What, too soon?

Peter Pops: No. Alright, now listen to me: there is no band, the music is played from C… Ds.

Male A-Hole: CDs, huh? Like CDs nuts? [ he laughs smugly ]

Peter Pops: Okay. Okay. You need to give me the name of your song, or we’re gonna have to move on to somebody else.

Male A-Hole: [ turns to Female A-Hole ] You ready, babe? [ she looks at him but doesn’t respond ] Ready to do some karry-okes? [ silence as she chews with her mouth open ] You ready to roke it, babe? Get our roke on? [ she continues chewing silently ] Babe? Roke?

Female A-Hole: [ annoyed ] Yea-ah.

Male A-Hole: She wants to tell some jokes.

Peter Pops: Okay — no, lady. You’re supposed to sing.

Male A-Hole: Yeah, we’re gonna tell jokes instead. Watch. [ he grabs the microphone and brings it closer ] Hey, babe, what are you afraid of?

Female A-Hole: Sheep.

Male A-Hole: Oh, yeah? What kind of dreams they give ya?

Female A-Hole: Ba-a-a-a-add.

[ people in the crowd begin to laugh ]

Peter Pops: No, she’s awful, in many ways.

Male A-Hole: You wanna see her impressions?

Peter Pops: I’d rather not.

Male A-Hole: Okay. [ turns to Female A-Hole ] Babe, do a cow eating grass.
