Bones: The But In The Joke

A street artist, who is covertly plastering his art on a billboard, falls and lands directly into his own glue - and into human remains. So the team must not only figure out the identity of the remains, but must also find a strategic way to remove the part of the corpse that is still glued to the street artist. Meanwhile, Booth tries his hand at a comedy club's "open mic" night in order to seek out potential suspects and Angela's love of art leads her to become attracted to the street artist.

The Jeffersonian team is around when he regains consciousness. He refuses to tell his name. He smells something terrible and he feels something is stuck on his back.
