Rex - Detroiters call chili dogs with onions "Coney Islands". And one of the most famous Coney Island shops in Downtown Detroit is Lafayette Coney Island

Aren't there two coney stands next door to each other in Detriot, I think I saw that on tv

American Coney Island located right next door is a perfectly good alternative.

Only problem is that I’m not Don.
Happened maybe a dozen times.
  2:30pm davefromtoronto:

Didn't some other group do this "roaches" song? I remember seeing it mentioned it in the Book of Rock Lists (my copy disintegrated years ago, can't check). Or is this the original?
  🌮 Swag For Life Member 2:35pm Bruce S.:

No one ever called me Don. No one ever calls me anything

But how about pot smoking low brows?
  2:41pm HandyJimDandy:

Is there an official no-brow dance? I do my own when the song plays. Anyone else?
  2:46pm The Butterman:

Handyjimdandy, the official no-brow dance would obviously feature a lot of pelvic thrusting combined with flappy arm movements

Avatar 2:49pm ledzeppelinsucks:

Those high rise dumps in Broward, Palm Beach and Dade are going to be replaced with blue tarps and shopping carts. The law suits will take decades. The feds will ultimately pay off after the latest real estate scam shakes down. Properly built modern structures on that terrain aren't affordable housing considering new building codes and rising water. More municipal bankruptcies to come. Thanks cocaine boomers.
