Why that monkey washes his balls in my whisky - Andy Ingamells

Description

Lyrics:
Why that monkey washes his balls in my whisky is such a mystery.
Are his balls never clean?
Because he does this every time I pour.
And I do not like monkey ball whisky, a cocktail I firmly refuse.
But if I spit in my whisky so he gets spit on his balls
Then I would still have an undrinkable drink.
Instead I sing this song of eternal fate and wonder
Why that monkey washes his balls in my whisky is such a mystery.

Desription:
What are you listening to? This song is the punchline to a joke, told by Žižek (the philosopher) in his book 'The Plague of Fantasies'. He tells the joke to illustrate the position of right-wing intellectuals, who change the tonality of concrete complaints to an abstract acceptance of the status quo. Žižek (the philosopher) did not write this song. You are listening to a recording of a new song performed by Žižek (the band), who have never sung together in public.
