I gotta have that cowbell, Baby!

So, my wife and I were talking about straplines for our blogs. She’s a big fan of House, the medical comedy-drama starring Hugh Laurie, and was looking through various quotations for something suitable, and we were laughing at the funny moments.
She also asked me what the hell my strapline meant, and it transpired that she’d never seen the famous cowbell sketch! After considering and ultimately rejecting divorce, I decided to hunt down the piece in question; it’s one of the best pieces of sketch comedy in the world, and anyone who doesn’t think it’s funny should be taken out and shot.
To set the scene – the following is a parody of VH1’s Behind the Music, and is about the events around the recording of Don’t Fear The Reaper.
