[edit] Trivia

  • The raging guitar solo on this track is played by Jonathan Coulton's friend Darin Strauss, award-winning author of the novel Chang and Eng and fellow member of Supergroup.
  • This song was made at the suggestion of Jonathan's friend Adam Sachs, who said he should write a song about a guy who's devolving into an ape, and the resulting argument with his wife about it. The lines "Keeping the thumb but I'm getting dumb" and ending the song (inexplicably) with "I'm a coal miner's daughter" were Adam's ideas.[1]
