It's So Wrong, It Must Be Tuesday!




The dorkiest hero since King Kandy..... what nerd thought this one up? If I wanted to learn something worthwhile, I sure wouldn't have been reading Dial H!

No, what really blew my mind, Daddy-O, is that someone lumped in Paul Revere & the Raiders with the Beatles and the Stones:

...except the Beatles never used Vox guitars. Well, not on any recordings anyway.

They did use Vox amps, but that's not as cool of a sell, I suppose.

(kinda a Beatles nut, me. And guitar player.)

You have to take Strata Man for granite. It makes me all sedimental just remembering him. Shale I go on...?

Ah, Strata Man: the "Three-Legged Jeans" of super-heroes. "He's not any lamer than Metamorpho..."

Hey, I say we separate Strata Man's layers and start diggin' for fossils! ;-)

Now now, let's not be all nasty about Paul Revere & the Raiders. I'll bet you still know all the lyrics when one of theirs songs come on the radio.

Sockamageed!

Gosh, I just LOVE saying that!

the only Paul Revere song I think I've ever heard of is that "Cherokee People" one. I lived in Tahlequah, Oklahoma (the Capitol of the Cherokee Nation) for a time, so I have many comments as to the artistic license Mr. Revere may have taken.... :-)

and sea of green, I'll save foldedsoup the trouble: Be careful where you dig on the guy.... hey, it FELT like a fossil! :D
