Don't want to be posting about BJ's on the site if they really didn't talk about them in the set
Yep, we got a bit of absurd blow job repartee when the boys were in Toronto, although I think it was only on the first night (it could have been both, it's just gone a bit blurry).

Warning: Dirty talk
Taken at a show last year. I really wasn't expecting Bret to say that at the end. Hilarious though :
Ahhhh, the old finger-banging bit. Yes, I remember that one. I remember being faintly surprised the first time I heard that coming from Bret - it seemed like much more of a Jemaine-ism to me. But I love it when they can catch me unawares like that. Gorgeously silly.
And yet. For all their loveably smutty talk, it's still absolutely classic Conchords, you know? I love their low-key inversion of gender roles. With almost any other comedians, the sex talk would likely be all WAHEY! ALPHA MALE MISOGYNY DICK TIME! But with the Conchords, it's sort of gently befuddled and adorably, endearingly giving. Even their smuttiness is usually in the service of others:
"All the ladies in the world,
I wanna get next to you,
Show you some gratitude
By makin' love to you.
It's the least we can do..."
"I'm like global warming, you can't ignore me,
In the bedroom, I'm the gentleman,
The ladies come before me."
Goal-oriented! Such a nice quality in a man! I love that the boys are indelibly feminists in all the fairest and most generous ways. Bless.
