    I ran across this in "The Onion" for the first time today, and felt compelled to share. Before you click, be forewarned that it is rated R. Kids, make sure to ask mom first. ;)

    Remember, it's all about the music. :D

    Seen it before...still find it really funny. :D
     
  3. There's a lot of bass-related content on The Onion, if you really look for it. Some of it is in those little sidebar articles they do, like the classic "Congress Debates Coolness of Rush."
    I don't know if anyone saw "That 70's Show" last night, but there was a Rush mention in there. The guys went to Canada to score some beer, and got busted trying to cross back into the U.S. So they're being interrogated by two bumbling mounties (one of them played by Dave Thomas!) The one mountie asks Eric, "Why are you in Canada?" And Eric says, "Beer... and I love Rush. 'Fly By Night'.. whoooooooooooo!!" (with fist raised.) I fell off the couch laughing!
     
  4. Argh! That 70's Show!
    I LOVE That 70's Show!
    And it's only on satellite TV here, and I don't have satellite TV. :(

    Another great onion article is: "National Funk Congress deadlocked on Get Up/Get Down issue". It's got Bootsy Collins as the speaker of the house.
