"Controversial Rock Band The Phish Plots ‘Mayhem in Manhattan’ This New Year’s Eve"

Image and caption from

Hey, we enjoy a charged headline as much as the next folks. To this end, we present “Controversial Rock Band The Phish Plots ‘Mayhem in Manhattan’ This New Year’s Eve.” The article on looks at the MSG run and notes that “these Phish shows promise to be a dangerous mix of sexual indulgence, marijuana crime and anti-American lyrical messages pumped out to audiences at ear-splitting levels. It is the decidedly treasonous nature of this heavy metal band’s show that surely deserves the attention of concerned parents and authorities alike.” It also offers a visual aid: “Phishheads vs. New Yorkers: How To Tell The Difference.”

So is it all for real? We’ll share two recent headlines, “Tim Tebow Prays for Kim Jong Il to Die, Evil Dictator Drops Dead at 70” and “Black Cat Uses Demonic Power to Force Innocent Baby to Sleep” and leave it at that.

You need to click the link and read the entire article. Some Funny Shit: “Older pot-addicted groupies, identified by their lack of teeth and rich septic odor, claim an elevated status in this world. They turn their backs on their communities to live “on the road” in dilapidated school buses and pedophile vans, prowling ethnic ghettoes and heartland towns with equal ardor.”

Who DOESN’T like to prowl ethnic ghettoes and heartland towns in their pedo vans and buses???

The site is satire (think The Onion from a fundamentalist Christian POV). What’s funny, however, is many of those who comment on the stories are fundamentalist Christians who don’t get the joke.

Okay… You have to ASK “is it for real” ???? Do you take The Onion or Colbert Report headlines seriously? It’s satire.

Ear splitting? I sat on the side of the stage 3 nights and thought they needed fill columns facing that way. It could have been much louder
