    This opening reminds me of the Transvestite openings.

    I was familiar with the Bongcloud, but the "transvestite????" I laughed so hard at this...for some reason, the animated change from king to queen makes me think of a verbal exchange: "excuse me, you're in my chair.... / Oh I'm sorry, really?... / yes, now move... / ok...here you go.... / thanks, now let me sit down...ok, let's play." LMAO
