Amusing Monday: Bowser and Blue all over again

I’m on vacation this week, so I’m falling back to some of my early entries for Amusing Monday. I found an old entry for Bowser and Blue, a couple of funny Canadians who are getting older yet continue to write songs and make fools of themselves, as they’ve been doing for more than 30 years.

I featured their song “Halifax Harbour” in Water Ways on Nov. 24, 2008. This time, I’ve added a new song (in the video player at right) called the “BP Song.” They’re singing about an oil spill that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico.

Their Bowser and Blue Webpage includes many more songs of all kinds. But the advance warning still stands: Some of their videos are irreverent, off-color and even medically oriented to the point of going places you never want to go — as in “Colon is a Mighty Big River.”

Amusing Monday: It’s about time for some music…

It’s amusing Monday again. We’ve had stories, photos, odd-ball videos, animal tricks, cartoons, jokes and even award-winning films. What we haven’t had so far is music.

So here, for your listening pleasure (or at least your temporary amusement I hope), are a couple of funny Canadians who have been writing off-the-wall songs and making fools of themselves for about 30 years. They live in Montreal and call themselves Bowser and Blue, which I thought sounded like a couple of dogs until I realized that their names are George Bowser and Rick Blue.

The following video is a performance of their song “Halifax Harbour.” I chose this tune because Halifax is one of Canada’s “water ways.” But you may wish to check out some of their other performances, listed on their Web page on You Tube. With Christmas not far off, check out “Why Spell Christmas with an X?”

Be forewarned, however. Some of their songs are slightly irreverent, off-color and even medically oriented. But if you happen to be in the right frame of mind, I’m sure you’ll enjoy these two wild and crazy guys.
