Jazz, science teachers and the mentally ill

From The Mighty Boosh, a discussion on the merits of jazz:
Howard: Are you aware of the music known as jazz? Are you aware of jazz music, the movement of jazz?

Vince: Why do you keep goin' on about jazz for?

Howard: Because it's the most important art form in the 20th century.

Vince: No one listens to jazz. Science teachers and the mentally ill, that's all jazz is for.

Howard: You better take that back, you electro ponce.

Vince: Or what?

Howard: You better just take it back, that's all.

Vince: I won't be taking that back, I'll be leaving it out there for all to see.

Howard: Drink it back up.

Vince: No. I hate jazz.

Howard: You hate jazz? You fear jazz. Huh?

Vince: Shut your mouth.

Howard: Ahhhh... you fear jazz, don't you?

Vince: No I don't.

Howard: You fear the lack of rules, the lack of boundaries. Oh its a fence, no its soft, ahh... What's happening? The shapes, the chaos! Huh? It has to be simple nursery rhymes for you, doesn't it? [to the tune of a nursery rhyme] Dee di dee di dee dee di. When the melody gets abstract, you mess your trousers and run to your mummy. [Howard starts scat singing].
