I’m not sure why an imam would call a fatwa in defense of Rosewater, but I imagine there’s at least one in Jersey who would.

A “Groupie Squirrel” t-shirt for the first person who correctly identifies the title of this track in the Comments.

  1. I was going to go with Alice Cooper, but it doesn’t scan. His da das are all in pairs. And if it were The Police, there would be do do dos amongst the da da das. The Muppets have Mna ma na, but that’s not it, either. Plus none of those make sense with the strip (well, Alice Cooper could, but it would be a stretch).

    But then I thought, “Ah ha! These are not lyrics! These are merely lyrically representative! It’s the opening bars to the Jon Stewart show!” Go on, you know I’m right…

  2. Sara, I’m so sorry! I didn’t see this until I was managing some of my old pages!

    You are absolutely right, it is the theme from “The Daily Show” (and it is, in fact, called “Dog on Fire” and was written by Bob Mould (though I think They Might Be Giants re-recorded it when Jon Stewart took over as host).

    I’ll get your shirt out toot sweet!
