"I heard this song at OVFF in 2010, and it was one of the inspirations for something I wrote starting the next morning, "Save Yourselves!">, my parody of "Wicked Girls" about horror movie cliches. Earlier I'd seen a great performance on the OVFF stage of Debbie Ohi's own parody, "Wicked Squirrels", which used horror movie cliches, so hearing a second song about movie cliches in another genre seems to be what made it click. The next month, "Save Yourselves!" was sprung (with video rolling on Seanan -- just three weeks after hearing "The Kid and the Dog" for the first time (and "Wicked Squirrels" for the second time, but acted out on stage), so I'm really glad I heard this when I did. (I'm leaving this comment ten years later in September 2020, and I really hope anyone reading this in 2030 understands this recounting of hearing songs in person at conventions we all traveled to as the way things are done in a normal year, and not as a quaint description of a bygone era!)

"Thanks for sharing this song here. I've heard it a few times, and I still laugh. I think it has to be pretty good sign if you still find it funny even when you know the lines. Bravo, folks."

"Good song (of course I already knew that) and a nice recording of it."
