One day a couple of weeks ago the Musers were teasing Mark Elfenbein about the promo he taped for the show since he appeared to endorse the concept of a fourth playoff game for the Rangers and Rays. Elf called in to defend himself. He re-ran the Musers segment on his show Sunday morning.
They got to talking about that ngyah-ngyah sound that Elf makes at the end of all his promos these days. If I had to describe it, it is a sound of amused anxiety. I thought sure I knew where he got that sound, but he didn't mention it, so I'll throw it out my speculation --
It's the sound the late Dom DeLuise used to make with some frequency.
