"Patton Oswalt takes a swipe at Toto in his latest hour-long special ‘Tragedy + Comedy = Time,’ describing a weekday supermarket trip that found him contemplating frozen dinners when one of the band’s most recognizable hits made an appearance over the store’s sound system.
“Toto’s ‘Africa’ started playing,” Oswalt says, in a preview clip from the special. “The combination of 11 a.m. on a Tuesday, Lean Cuisines and Toto’s ‘Africa,’ I have never felt more peacefully, effortlessly, joyously suicidal.” http://ultimateclassicrock.com/patton-oswalt-toto-suicidal/?trackback=tsmclip 3
