Child of the 60s, and winner five years running in the Massachusetts Annual Phil Collins Lookalike Contest, Wilfred Z. Combover III, is eager to shine his dim light on these cultural curiosities from a bygone era.
Let rip, Wilf, and do your worst!
a #fibbingfriday post.
What musical group from the 1960s was known as “The Fab Four”?
These were six guys from Liverpool who used to play in a cave underground. They had to sack two players because the money only went four ways: the management; the promoter; the venue hire; and the loans on musical instruments. On the upside, the name made more sense afterwards and they wondered why they didn’t think of it before. But they were from Liverpool.
What was the “British Invasion” in the 1960s?
This was the little publicised reenactment of The Pilgrim Fathers beachhead attack on Massachusetts. They came with long hair and identical suits and spoke very strangely indeed. After replacing the drummer, The Pilgrim Fathers changed its name to “The Puritan Four”, and later to “The Impuritan Four” after being introduced to LSD, marijuana and Indian Yogis, the latter of which went feral in American National Parks, stealing pic-a-nic baskets wearing nothing at all but a hat, a collar and a necktie.
What is Stephen King’s book, The Stand about?
God, I wish I knew. What’s more, I wish Stephen King knew! Before he wrote the thing.
So I looked it up on Amazon and it says it’s about $4.99.
What was the TV show, Breaking Bad about?
God, I wish I knew. Hey, there’s a theme here!
I’m just guessing but when you break something, it either breaks good or it breaks bad. We’ve recently had our bathroom retiled and you ought to have heard the rum language coming from that end of the house!
“Whaaa? Oh, for f@#*% sake!”
“Oh for the LOVE O’ FECK!!!!”
I guess some of those tiles were breaking bad.
Exactly who was Kilroy?
Well, you’ve no doubt heard of that Tarantino movie, Kill Bill? Yeah! And its sequel, Kill Bill 2? Yeah! Well, it’s got exactly nothing to do with that.
I don’t know if I have enough bandwidth to go into exact details about this fellow. I mean, where do I begin? With his DNA? Maybe his folks’ DNA? The DNA of Adam and Eve?!! (which would be exactly the same, her being formed of a rib of his, know what I’m saying?).
Existentialism? Søren bleeding Kierkegaard? Darwin’s Theory of bleeding Evolution?!!
What musical instrument is Phil Collins best known for playing?
Phil Collins is famous for playing the comb. It was either that or throw the damn thing away on account of his baldness.
It’s called musical reappropriation in the business. Unless you’re a lawyer specialising in copyright infringement; then it’s plagiarism.
According to Genesis 1, what happened on the seventh day?
And The Lord thus created DNA and sayeth unto Adam, go ye forth and spread thine double helix before the Land of Nod, and Adam said, Phwoah!! and did snigger greatly.
What happened at the O.K. Corral?
At the Terrible Corral, it was terrible, while at the Awesome Corral, it was awesome! But you couldn’t say a lot about the O.K. Corral; it was all right, I suppose.
According to Greek mythology, what was needed to cross the river Styx?
Well, not a return ticket. I won’t be fooled by that scam a second time!
What was the play, Inherit the Wind about?
It’s about the perils of warm bodily gas rising, so if you’re in the audience you had better have bought a ticket for the stalls and not the circle, nor, heaven forbid, a box where everyone in the theatre can see you choke.
