So I Get The Joke But I Don't Get The Joke

pgdf linked to this on Stereogum and unless you're a Sci Fi nerd you probably don't read his LJ so ...

They Might Be Giants "Mesopotamians"

So here's what I don't get. Obviously every time the two Johns sneeze they write another pop song that's probably better than anyone else is writing. And yet, though people might kinda like them, everyone says "Haha TMBG" but no one says "damn haven't these guys written like 65536 absolutely brilliant pop songs in the past 25 years and shouldn't they be like Kings of All Popular Music?"

Well anyway, there I said it. I will be walking around for days singing "Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal, and Gilgamesh." Something to push Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tube Man out of my brain.
