Excellent – now we’ve heard from the Jack Johnson fan perspective. Duly noted!

I take it the Crotch Thrusters would all wear red leather codpieces. Naturally, they would ask the audience repeatedly “Are you ready to rock?”

To wit:

Tho’ not sure what a “working codpiece” entails. What happens when it stops working?
Are there more reliable versions that take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’?
