Brett Webber was in the grip of a psychotic episode when he drove for more than a mile throughExeter on the rims of his van's wheels after all four tyres had been punctured by a police stinger device.

Wtf is a Tyre?

And who hasn't driven for a mile on their rims while alluding the police?  Honest mistake.

Something like this happened to me in the mountains outside of Muncie, Indiana.

Good thing he was stopped, as he might also have run into some wildlife. He could have hit a deer. A female deer.

I thought it would be funnier if I could hide the joke in a comment rather than just repeating the lyric.

I think he was just hinting at the police.
 
2013-03-11 12:52:00 PM  
Sure, some may think this is funny.  What I see is a man who successfully protected himself from alien abduction by making loud noises and attracting police attention.  I say kudos to this man for quick thinking and taking decisive action. Next time you are being abducted by aliens, we'll see if you handle it any better.

Sound it out... Now what does it sound like? And don't be a smartass and pronounce the e like é. But you obviously know, since you're talking about rims.

/Also: alluding? Really?

Finally someone else who gets it.  I say "Doe Ray Me Soh!" every time I walk under a streetlight and I have never once been abducted as far as I know.

I looked it up on IMDB:

To get the spaceships' attention prior to their arrival at Devils Tower, the five notes the scientists play are G, A, F, (octave lower) F, C. When they arrive at the tower and are attempting communication, the notes they play are B flat, C, A flat, (octave lower) A flat, E flat.

Then I went to the Wikipedia page on Solfege and translated the notes. I used the G A F F C sequence.

I worry that, if we really are being visited by aliens, they think these nimrods are representative of all humans....

Uh, wait...just thought that through...

never mind...

Yup. The musical context defintely places 3 and 4 as the tonic, an octave apart.

35: Where do the 5 tones with hand symbols in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" come from?

explains the Re Mi Do Do So melody used in "Close Encounters", the universally accepted method of making friends with aliens.
