Saturday morning tunes: Hooh! Hah!

Watching the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain cover -- indeed, possess -- its pretty unlikely repertoire of music is a lot like watching Schroeder play Beethoven: How does he get all those notes when the black keys are only painted on?

A lot of UOGB's selections are played for droll humor (not to say for laughs), but this one -- from Ennio Morricone's classic film score -- makes it to the last bar without so much as a musical punchline in sight.

(Well, almost.)
