The episode: “Eegah,” ep. 506
The riff: Yelled by Crow as the camera cuts to a withered, dehydrated mummy head.
The explanation: The mummy bears a striking resemblance to Otis Nixon, a speedy journeyman center fielder best known for his spectacular catch as a member of the Atlanta Braves in the summer of 1992. Needless to say, Nixon was not known for his physical attractiveness as a player, as one might guess from Joel and the bots comparing him to a corpse. He also battled drug charges and cocaine addiction throughout his career.
Novelty factor: A favorite riff as soon as I heard it, as I have long found anything related to Nixon to be hilarious after seeing this Something Awful spoof of terrible “collector’s item” TV promotions. “OTIS NIXON! MOST BEAUTIFUL MAN IN BASEBALL!”
