This is something that I really thought would come up sooner but hasn't seemed to surface...
There's this real cool rock band called The Von Bondies who put out a record on Sire and are touring the world and now have a song that HBO is using in their ads. Well the grumble around Detroit is that at least one (if not several) of the songs on their record were cribbed liberally from other local rock bands. It's tough to picture the magnitude until you listen to this sort-of mash-up of the Von Bondies hit "C'mon C'mon" and a 2003 song called "American Pig" by Detroit rockers The Go.
Listen and decide for yourself: GoVonBondies.mp3

A Highway Patrolman pulled a car over. When he asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver answered that he was a magician and a juggler and he was on his way to do a show that night for a birthday party and didn't want to be late.
The Officer told the driver he was fascinated by juggling, and if the driver would do a little juggling for him that he wouldn't give him a ticket.
The driver told the Officer that he had sent all of his equipment on ahead and didn't have anything to juggle. The Officer told him that he had some flares in the trunk of his patrol car and asked if he could juggle them.
The juggler stated that he could, so the Officer got three flares, lit them and handed them to the juggler.
While the man was doing his juggling act, a car pulled in behind the patrol car, a drunk got out and watched the performance briefly, he then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.
The Officer observed him doing this and went over to the patrol car, opened the door and asked the drunk what he thought he was doing.
The drunk replied, "You might as well take me to jail, cause there's no way I can pass that test.
