Thanks for the reminder, MS! I have been waiting all week to report this to the MS board: I was talking to a friend of mine about riding things, and he's been to Iceland and rode the Icelandic horse breed there. He said that they have a gait that other horses don't have. I asked what the beat was. And he said: "You know on the Flintstones? When Fred or Barney has to run?" And I shouted, "ICELANDIC HORSES HAVE BONGO FEET??!!!"

A couple months ago I came across a photo of the Muffs on stage at Jabberjaw in LA. There was a douchebag with a crap haircut right at the front of the stage. I then looked closer and realized I was the douche with the frap haircut.
