Ha! That's GREAT!

I'm kinda partial to "What's That That Tastes Like Gravy?"

This is great! Ever since I picked up banjo I get together with a fiddle/guitarist friend and we play this stuff on the sidewalk. Fantastic!
Love their version of "Shake and Break It"

Tampa Red very effectively used the kazoo on some of his early recordings.

Then there's Jesse Fuller's great kazoo solo on his "San Francisco Bay Blues".

Just one listen to this fine release and you'll be ready to shoot your distant cousin over a fence-line dispute!

If that's not an endorsement I don't know what is. Reminds me of a mountain sheep hunting story I read recently where they where attempting shots of extreme distances across canyons and borrowed the classic mountain man's line;

We were shootin' so dab burn fur that we had to use salt bullets so the meat wouldn't spoil fer we got there!
