  1. Wow! Wow! Did I say “Wow!”?

    The only time I sing is in the shower, and I’m still sing off-key (don’t stand next to me in church when the hymns are sung either). This guy is awesome!

  2. Well, I don’t think these guys have anything to worry about, but I couldn’t do it. And it was better than the monkey and the breakdancers. :)

    You want “Wow!”? Try this.
