The very elderly Al Hunt is back with his patented list of high-larious band names.
I had to help out this year because Al's middle aged grandson Jeffy is in rehab for prawn addiction.
I am not trying to be cagey. Little Jeffy is addicted to jumbo shrimp.
We now present this year's "Famous Monsters of Filmland"-Style band name list:
- Lady Gag-Ball
- Earth Wind and Uninsured Fire Damage
- The Hex Pistols
- Rage Against The Very Scary Machine
- Josh Groban (stet, ed.)
- Lynyrd Skinned-Nerd
- Katy Scarry
- Mary J. Bilge ("Ha!" writes Al, "That one kills! Mad magazine would have loved that one!")
- Taylor Swift-Kick in the Groin
- National Debt-tallica
- Bob Marley and the Illegal Whalers
2008 (Summary: Features the horrifying visage of Eleanor Roosevelt)
2007 (Summary: Al makes racist comments, gets edited)
2006 (Summary: Little Jeffy begins to be a liability)
2005 (Summary: Al asks for an exorbitant fee. We offer $5. He takes it.)
- Palm Tree Heroes
- Sharp Practice
- Ear Hook
- Bipolar Cheerleader
- Dog Shirt
Will I spill all the details? Only if you really bug me about it.

I have developed hundred of websites for corporate clients and can affirm that a number of companies would probably prefer similar requirements from their web guy.
Sorry, baby. You're messing with the wrong webmaster.
* Retroactive Hatred
"Retroactive Hatred" is a contribution from my buddy Paxton who is living up in D.C. these days. I hope there is no personal message intended. Most guys send you email that just says "Retroactive Hatred", you have to assume some kind of vendetta has started.
Not saying I haven't given him good reasons...
- A Full Roaring Boil
- Sore Nipple Solutions
- Westerlund One
- Random Dot Autostereogram
- As Dead as the Moon
- Space Clown
- The Odd-Toed Ungulates
- Tin Whiskers
- Killer Whiskers
Deadly Tin Whiskers are here, and they have already KILLED!
50's sci-fi hyperbole? Nope. In the headlong rush to make everything lead-free, inferior substitutes are causing deadly danger in the aviation industry. Just thought you might need something else to worry about.
Re Odd-Toed Ungulates:
Confessions of the obscure: Here's another crazy tangent from my c.v. - I have spent more time around tapirs (whatever that is) than is really necessary, specifically Bards Tapir. They are interesting critters (and keen judges of character).
Bonus Unsolicited Opinion: --In my estimation tapirs are smarter than horses.
That, and 99 cents will buy you a new instant coffee at Starbucks.
