Twitter completes my Sunday with Fake Rock and Roll Facts hashtag

I woke up late Sunday morning needing a relaxing day in front of me.

I had worked tirelessly for eight of the Larry Bird bad backlast nine days.  My Larry Bird-like back needed a rest and my Larry Bird-like skin tone was in desperate need of a tan.

So I took the two books I’m currently entrenched in out to my neighborhood pool for some all-natural Vitamin D.

All was fine and dandy, sun a-blazing and birds a-chirping, until I heard a guy from the apartments above blasting some techno music out of his patio doors.  This was about two o’clock in the afternoon.  I thought to myself who the hell jams to EDM (electronic dance music) at that hour, unless of course they were still going strong from the night before.

What was even more abhorrently sacrilegious about his choice of music, aside from the fact that it was soullessly electronic in and of itself, was that it sampled both Led Zeppelin and Yes.  So aside from the incessant aunce aunce that was making my ears hemorrhage on a relaxing, sunny afternoon, I was being subjected against my will to Robert Plant’s likely unlicensed and most certainly, inappropriately placed “Gonna Give You My Love” over… and over… and over again.

I left as soon as my tan lines outweighed the unbearable beats from above.

I came back to the comforts of my quiet home to find a hysterically tasteless and musically-related hashtag trending on Twitter.

#FakeRockAndRollFacts

At least it took my mind off the aunce aunce.

These, my friends, are the reasons you need a Twitter account, for no other reason than to spend time thinking creatively and making others laugh.

  1. Fake Rock-N-Roll Facts _____ Dr Conrad Murray was never going to provide Botox injections to Michael Jackson . Let’s just leave it at that shall we ?

  2. Took me a while to come up with this one:
    #Fake Rock-N-Roll Facts: Ted Nugent shacks up with Joan Jett and all that we get is Jewel?

  3. HYSTERICAL! 🙂 Cant pick my favorite# cause there are too many of them! You really had me laughing out loud! Great stuff SC. Thx… I needed that!
    #oneisfunnierthanthenext

  4. EDM isn’t nearly as annoying as cars with rooster stickers on the doors and Woody Woodpecker with a cigar and flames stickers behind the wheel wells rattling the block bumping accordions, tubas and trumpets.

    In Cali all we get is regular Mexicans….At least in Florida you get cool Mexicans like Cubans and Puerto Ricans.

    Before the PC police show up, that was a joke…A crude joke, but a joke nonetheless, so don’t get your panties in a wad.

  5. Moose…

    I’m not sure what’s scarier. The visual of Joan Jett and Ted Nugent getting it on or the fact that I had to look up and actually see whether Jewel was the offspring of that get together.

  6. That was actually a good one, Bleed.

    You know my readers have thick skin so I wouldn’t worry all that much.

    Besides, there’s no closed caption in Spanish.
