Babies. Am I right? I mean, they’re amazing to hang out with and to cradle– as long as you can drop them back in their parents’ arms at the end of the day. But as joyful as holding a mini human can be, you’re never quite sure what to do after that. Do you sing? Dance? Do you talk to him or her? If so, what do you say? And that’s exactly the predicament our lovable protagonist of the below video finds himself in while holding his best friend’s six-month-old daughter. Check it out.

From his album Holy Drivel (available Oct. 30), this bit perfectly encapsulates Derek Sheen’s equal parts-playful-and-absurd approach to self-deprecating comedy. Seeing as I’m a former musician and rock journalist, Sheen’s past as a roadie for Trey Gunn and King Crimson only further endears him to me. And I know this shouldn’t matter, but that the name and artwork of the album is a play on Dio’s Holy Diver only makes the experience better. I listen to my Dio station on Pandora at least once a day, after all.

The point is, Laughspinners, you should probably check out DerekTime.com to learn more about Sheen and you can pre-order Holy Drivel here. One last thing: Ride the tiger.

    Hooray for a shitty Patton Oswalt rip-off that takes three minutes to get to a punchline.
