Javelin Man

May 3, 2007 | 12 comments

I consider my brother-in-law to be a twisted genius (in a good, vaguely Wierd-Al-Yankovich sort of way). I am happy to say that the fruits of his desire to be a rock star, his labors as a scriptorian (his favorite Book of Mormon character is Teancum), and his calling as a road show director are now available on YouTube. Without further ado, here is the song that has rocked family reniuns for years…”Javelin Man”

    Best speech by Senator Bennett since his election. Short. Punchy. Thoughtful.

    Nice to see the ladies in “Roberta” Palmer’s band were dressed so modestly!

    Dude, Nate, your mother-in-law’s hot. When she ditches the tie, she’s got this whole Sheryl Crow thing going. Wicked.

    Huh, didn’t know they still did roadshows.

    U.S. Senator, interviewed on PBS documentary, and now a music video star. Is there anything Bob Bennett can’t do?

    Very funny. Good laugh for the day.

    This made me hungry for some Teancum-Tots.

    Funny–this was in my stake! They did video roadshows this year, where each ward produced a movie. It’s my second encounter with Javelin Man, having watched the Bennett family perform at the Aspen Grove talent show a couple years ago. Thanks for sharing!

    (My son thought that Sen. Bennett was GBH. :) )
