Comedic genius!

There are the smart sitcoms and other over-the-top sex comedy movies but one favorite that I wouldn’t mind watching tons of times would be Dumb and Dumber. I picked this as one of the best scenes…

THE DYNAMIC DUO OF DUMB. The sweetest sound this earth can produce.

The song “Mockingbird” is a 1963 song written and recorded by Inez and Charlie Foxx, covered about a decade later by Carly Simon and James Taylor in a 1974 single (from Wikipedia). I was curious what the song was when I first heard it in the movie. Part of the lyrics from Songfacts.com:

Mock (yeah)
Ing (yeah)
Bird (yeah)
Yeah (yeah)
Mockin’bird, now

Everybody have you heard
He’s gonna buy me a mockingbird
And if that mockingbird don’t sing
He’s gonna buy me a diamond ring
And if that diamond ring won’t shine
He’s gonna surely break this heart of mine
And that’s why I keep on tellin’ everybody
Say yeah, yeah whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, uh, oh

I got the Taylor-Simon version in my iPOD!
