    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'

    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*****!"


    you better put it all behind you, baby, 'cause life goes on
    you keep carrying that anger, it'll eat you up inside--
