Yesterday on Pat and Stu the guys lobbied their efforts to get their twitter following up to 11,000 followers. Why? To reach a larger audience, perhaps? Nope.
So Pat would sing his “hit song” “What’s That? Who Pays your Salary?” inspired by none other than Mr. Chris Matthews.
Michelle Malkin’s website, Twitchy.com, was very entertained by the music styles of our very own Pat Gray.
During the Pat and Stu Show on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze TV on Thursday morning, Pat Gray — who is known for his hilarious songs — performed a song called “What’s that? Who pays your salary?” The song is a parody of Chris Matthews interrogating an employee of Americans For Prosperity by asking him who pays his salary thirteen times.
The song was such an instant hit amongst listeners that they requested another performance. Pat stated he wouldn’t sing it again unless the duo’s Twitter handle, @PatandStu, hit 11,000 followers before the end of the show. They reached their goal with about ten minutes left in the show and they are currently at 11,149 followers. Here’s how it happened.

Today on Glenn’s radio show, Glenn noted the amount of comments he receives from listeners who absolutely love Pat’s “original” songs, including his multiple renditions of “Happy Days.”
Here are just a few examples…
The famous 2010 Gloat Fest (…who else misses those days?)

“Stairway to Communism”
“Osama is Dead”
Glenn, being a fan of Pat’s music stylings, wanted to hear yesterday’s rendition of “What’s That? Who Pays your Salary?”.
“It’s a song parody of Chris Matthews interrogating an employee of Americans For Prosperity by asking him who pays his salary 13 times,” Glenn explained to listeners.
Here’s the clip of Matthews’s interview (aka interrogation):
“Now, this is not something that Pat has just, just came up with spur of the moment, you know, grab the guitar that’s here on the set and just started playing. This is something he really worked on, again the ‑‑ probably the quintessential hilarious songwriter for radio.”
After graciously serenading Glenn and the audience with his latest hit pat thanked Chris Matthews and MSNBC for being his “muse”.
And after some thought, it Glenn that he’s paying Pat for this ridiculousness.
“Why is nobody asking who pays his salary?” Glenn asked.
“Chris Matthews?” Pat responded.
“No, yours. Who the hell is paying you for that?” Glenn joked.
“Damn it, it’s me!”
