Bummer....
 
2003-01-26 04:09:34 AM  
I've never had the Boobies before. That is all.
 
2003-01-26 04:10:12 AM  
Hah. Fark sure showed me.
 
2003-01-26 04:11:02 AM  
No word on whether the accident was alcohol related.
HAH!
Press conference scheduled for later.
BAH!
 
2003-01-26 04:11:13 AM  
I wonder if he knew Sonny Bono.
 
2003-01-26 04:11:45 AM  
Gee, the wife bought tix to see him next month. Darn.

Seriously, though, I hope he's ok.
 
2003-01-26 04:12:28 AM  
So did his car start a fire when it hit the tree?

I wonder what is taking them so long to figure alcohol into this crash.. It is Billy Joel.. What else could it be?

I wonder what is taking them so long to figure alcohol into this crash.. It is Billy Joel.. What else could it be?

Judging by his rapidly increasing waistline, my bet is that was busy scarfing down an ultimate cheeseburger, with extra cheese and burger.
 
2003-01-26 04:15:42 AM  
He had to be a big shot last night..
 
2003-01-26 04:15:53 AM  
It was not immediately clear whether the accident was alcohol-related, police said.

Not clear because they were gagging on his booze breath.
 
2003-01-26 04:15:55 AM  
We didn't didn't start the car!
do-do-do-do-do do
 
2003-01-26 04:16:02 AM  
"It was not immediately clear..."

And neither was his blood alcohol level, I bet...
 
2003-01-26 04:16:14 AM  
Considering there is this evil snow all over, but you'd have to be drunk to go at speed.

"When frefighter crews arrived at the scene of the burning car wreck, Joel stated that "We didn't start that fi-re"
 
2003-01-26 04:18:41 AM  
Man, I really hope that tree is okay!

Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)

You should never argue with a crazy mind
You oughta know by now
You can pay Uncle Sam with overtime
Is that all you get for your money?

I like this guy.
Course he doesnt fit the 'overtime' bracket anymore...
He's not one of those animal lovers, is he?
 
2003-01-26 04:23:12 AM  
Do you think he had a bottle of red AND a bottle of white?
 
2003-01-26 04:23:54 AM  
DB810 Yeah, now he's all blue
 
2003-01-26 04:24:19 AM  
Hmm... My first thought was he hit some black ice or something... NY's been getting some heavy snow, right? I know what it's like to be driving a big car on ice... I've got a big honkin' oldsmobile, and I hit a patch of ice on a bridge one night and spun out into oncoming traffic... lucky me, somehow I swerved out of harm's way and into a snowbank. So considering the awful weather the north east has been having lately, maybe he just spun out... not necessarily an alcohol thing... then again, I'm usually wrong about everything...
 
2003-01-26 04:28:26 AM  
sources say he's hoping he dies because, hey, only the good die young.
 
2003-01-26 04:28:31 AM  
He's trying to avoid a military draft again.
 
2003-01-26 04:32:29 AM  
I'm guessing that he had two of both

<lyrics shamefully altered>

And it occured to me
While I hit up my Christmas tree
She never missed a cue
Or lost a beat
Everytime I rammed the meter
There she was when I would need her
Greeting me with handcuffs in the street
I guess I should have known it
She'd find the perfect moment
To arrest me
 
2003-01-26 04:33:50 AM  
How does one hit a tree? A tree doesn't even move. Why did he swerve for the tree? Did the tree say, "come here Joey boy, I have something for you."
 
2003-01-26 04:35:13 AM  
...but I made it home alive, and you said that only proves that I'm insaaa-uuaaane."
 
2003-01-26 04:37:25 AM  
I wonder if the crash knocked some talent into the old bastard.

Nah.
 
2003-01-26 04:37:26 AM  
that's nothing, man.. U2 crashed their plane in south korea!
 
2003-01-26 04:38:38 AM  
this was a big surprise to people like me who thought he died sometime after Uptown Girl.
 
2003-01-26 04:40:15 AM  
I heard that Bono guy died while skiing. Another bad year for U2.
 
2003-01-26 04:43:10 AM  
Wait, wait, wait...

2003-01-26 04:46:45 AM  
Man, you farkers are old.
My reaction: Billy who? Wait, the guy from Greenday... No, fark it, that's Billy Joe. Billy Joel is... the guy who had that song about Saigon.
fark, isn't he dead yet?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Sorry. I just love it when celebrities ski into trees.

[/asshole]
 
2003-01-26 05:05:09 AM  
Gee, the link isn't good anymore and a search for Billy Joel returns NUTHIN'!!
 
2003-01-26 05:12:12 AM  
Oops!
 
2003-01-26 05:13:33 AM  
Waitaminute. Did he ski into a tree or drive into it? The story link is dead, so I can't RTFA. Whenever I hear of a celebrity crashing into a tree, I automatically imagine them on skis. It's funnier that way. It's always funny when people on skis injure themselves. But not nearly as funny as when people on escalators injure themselves. I often have the urge to push people down the "up" escalator, so they keep tumbling and tumbling and tumbling and tumbling, without ever quite reaching the bottom. It would be funniest if I could push a celebrity on skis down an "up" escalator. Good God, I think I'd piss myself laughing!!!
 
2003-01-26 05:17:20 AM  
See link ny'ah.
 
2003-01-26 05:17:36 AM  
Hmmm, now that I've read some of the previous comments, it looks like he drove into the tree. Damn. Oh well, I'll still imagine him on skis. Tumbling down the "up" escalator. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

El Bastardo - Wow, are you serious? You must be a young one. That's Christie Brinkley. The hottest chick in the world (circa 1983).

Here's a picture of her from those days:

[image from eonline.com too old to be available]

Did you ever see Vacation? She's the hottie in the red Ferrari.

[image from eonline.com too old to be available]

She also did a series of awful informercials with Chuck Norris

2003-01-26 06:18:03 AM  
Bloody heck! This is about the third tree he's hit in less than a year!!!! Hello NY law!!! Maybe it's time to suspend his license for a little while just incase he, em, kills himself as there is obviously some kind of problem going on in his noggin.
 
2003-01-26 06:28:32 AM  
Never heard of him...

HeckMonkey: I've never had the Boobies before.

Well, HeckMonkey, get some money and hire some boobies.


Another filter victim. I really love when it totatlly changes the context of the user's post. Then again, I get enjoyment out of just about anything, since I have no life. . .
 
2003-01-26 08:50:08 AM  
Billy Joel is just another car in search of its tree.
 
2003-01-26 08:51:13 AM  
It's a good thing none of you pinko left wing commie farkers was hugging the tree at the time.
 
2003-01-26 09:02:57 AM  
Maybe we should paint the lines two inches wider and make the signs bigger.

Or maybe he's just getting too farking old to drive.

But he was probably drunk.

who is Billy Joel?!?! Only one of the greatest artists ever! He sings, he plays the piano, he writes his own music! Billy Joel is a God!
 
2003-01-26 11:44:32 AM  
It would be much safer to just sit at home and masturbate.
 
2003-01-26 12:42:45 PM  
Billy Joel fine after hitting stable, horse is not doing so well though.

I think it was a suicide attempt. He just found out Christie really left him.
 
2003-01-26 12:59:17 PM

It was already burning as the wheels were turning.

Marc Bolan...Sonny Bono....one of those Kennedys...

Yes, my friends, it is proof that trees are of SATAN! We must back our president in his decision to eliminate these hell-spawned botanical deathtraps! The bigger the tree, the bigger the danger! Those Redwoods and national parks are deaths waiting to happen! Do you want to lose your possessions and loved ones to a cruel, heartless chunk of wood? We must deforest every square inch of this nation, to save the millions, and help the poor, flannel-clad folks in the lumbering industry. God bless America and chainsaws!

...save a rockstar! Kill a tree today!

Tree didn't start the fire.

Tree's got a way.

Tree's always a woman.

It's still rock off-road to me.

I love billy joel :(
 
2003-01-26 09:48:45 PM  
They've already taken Bono and a Kennedy from us, and now they seem to be after musicians. I wonder what those trees are up to?
 
2003-01-26 09:49:54 PM  
Sonny Bono, that is. Don't know about that U2 stuff, but it'd be just like those damn trees to do it...
 
2003-01-27 02:58:04 PM  
Good thing he forgot to pick up Warren Zevon ("my ride's here...") - never mind.
Seriously, those two ought to do a duet while they still can. WZ's lungs aren't getting any better.
 
2003-01-27 10:08:25 PM  
Hey, I live out on long island, not 5 miles from where he crashed. Friend of mine saw the crash, they pulled him out of the car and he slugged a firefighter. Fabiano, the police cheif out here, used to be a coke dealer, and he cut him loose. They didn't take a breathylizer, glossed it all over. He was drunk as a skunk. But you knew that. oh...another one of my friends has it on videotape

heh heh
