Because Of Bob 
In 2012, I did a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds so I could acquire new tech that would aid me in making and performing new creative endeavors in art, comedy, and music. One of the donation prizes was that I would write and record a funny song inspired by the donor, and release all of these songs on an album. I participated in FAWM (February Album Writing Month) in 2014 as a means to write and record the 9 remaining songs I owe to those donors and release the album. This song, the first and title track of that album (available now at my Bandcamp page), is inspired by my largest Kickstarter donor, Bob Mathews aka 'Number 11', whose donation directly led to everything mentioned in the song happening, most importantly, fulfilling my promise to anyone who donated over $1,750 that I would mow their lawn. Bob donated $2,200. So while you likely won't understand much in this song or on the rest of the album, you'll certainly sense the fun and the appreciation I feel for all the folks who donated to my first Kickstarter. Thank you to all of you. Especially Bob.

BOB!

Did Bob supply the gas for the lawnmower?

Because of Bob I got the crazy idea that a FuMP convention could possibly exist. And now it does!

Devo, that was on my list of potential things to mention in the song, but I couldn't mention everything. I will list off more things on the FuMPcast on Thursday. :D

The air date was April 19th, 2013: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZb0F-5acWc Kyle and I were also in the episode which aired 2 days earlier because they filmed both of them back to back.

You might have to look quick (or pause), because they're never on camera long. IIRC, Luke & Kyle were sitting on house right (stage left).
