Bad, bad dog

Today's New York Observer contains a long article by Frank DiGiacamo on Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and his human companion, Robert Smigel. Some great details in here about Late Night's breakout star (the dog or Smigel?—you decide) like these lyrics to Triumph's first single, "I Keed":
"Avril Lavigne, punk queen? Now there's a kidder / Go back north, CŽline needs a baby-sitter," Triumph raps. He sniffs "Elton John's tush, just for all the history," takes on Philip Glass— "Atonal ass / You're not immune / Write a song with a fucking tune"—and Snoop Dogg: "There's room for only one dog, putz / And I can rap. Can you lick your own nuts?"

How many songs can you name that take swipes at Avril Lavigne and Philip Glass? (The new Eminem single doesn't count, he was referring to the Kronos Quartet.) Anyway, get ready for a full scale Triumph moment (a veritable "Moment of Triumph") when his album Come Poop with Me is released November 14th. The article hints at a video, non-Conan talk show appearances, and (let's hope he passes on this) commercials ("The only thing I like better than doing The New York Times crossword puzzle is actually pooping on eet!"). Read all the way to the end of the article for a great cameo by Jesse Camp, whom Triumph suggests is "turning tricks at the Lincoln Tunnel."
