Can I just state the latest one about Glenn's proposed 'homage to Detroit' album, is a classic.

It is weird because I was listening to Prince's Sexy MF yesterday....

Soda, these are great. But so far, I think the prize goes to Glenn's 'homage to Detroit'

1988: Glenn Frey makes guest appearance on “The Golden Girls” as male stripper hired by Sophia

1989: Joe Walsh invents the internet

1992: PETA organizes boycott of Joe Walsh records and shows, protesting “Coyote Love” as a song that promotes animal abuse

All day long, I was wondering if anyone was going to say anything or just "let it ride". I love how each event got increasingly far-fetched as the day went on. Great job again, Soda!

These were brilliant, Soda! Thanks for the laugh.

I particularly love the butter sculpture one (cute!) and "Take It Easy, Mutha F*****!"
