They'll go into bear form, you'll need to get some DoT's on them first while you AOE them down.

I swear, each year, I keep seeing the special sales for Summer Solstice earlier and earlier each year.

They could all construct toothpick henges and gather whenever they wanted.
 
2013-06-21 12:12:00 PM
"Only" 22 arrests this year.

Either they're doing too much, or not nearly enough for a solstice party.
 
2013-06-21 12:13:08 PM
Man they were CRAZY ADVANCED SPACE ALIENS to arrange the shadows and celestial bodies in relation to the stones the way that they did!   How could they have known how to do that?

Oh what?  They just built a scale model and then copied it for the larger structure once they had the details nailed down like all ancient wonders such as pyramids etc?  Well... that just takes the fun out of it doesnt it....

Well, the Big Bad Wolfhenge ruined the market for Straw and Woodhenges. Grandpappy was in the business and he moving S-henges and W's as fast as the druids could crank them off the line. Everyone wanted one. Then the Pig Incident ruined it. Gramps went in to the office the next morning and there were cancellations and opt-outs all over his desk. To his dying day, he swears the Stoners had something to do with it.

Avebury is cooler than Stonehenge anyway.
 
2013-06-21 12:32:20 PM
My life is so successful
I've got everything a man could ever need.

Got a 1000 dollar haircut
And I even have a talkshow on TV.

And I know I should be happy, but instead
There's a question I can't get out of my head.

What's the meaning of Stonehenge?
It's killing me that no one knows
Why it was built 5000 years ago.

Why did they build the Stonehenge?
How could they raise the stones so high
Completely without the technology
We have today?

When I make my jalapeños
Calamri and prosciutto
I'm the king!

My wife applaud(s) me in the kitchen
When I tell her all I bought is from the local store

(And) When the kids have gone to bed, we're all alone
She gives me a smile
Then she plays with my b....

(But?) All I think of is Stonehenge
I think about it when I dream
The biggest henge that I have ever seen

What's the purpose of Stonehenge?
A giant granite birthday cake
Or a prison far too easy to escape?

Stonehenge! Stonehenge! Lots of stones in a row! (chor)
They were 25 tons each stone, my friend
But amazingly they got them all down in the sand
And they moved it (Stonehenge! )
And they dragged it (Stonehenge! )
And they rolled it 46 miles from Waleeees! - Heeey (46 miles from Wales! )

What's the deal with Stonehenge? (chor) (Oh, what's the deal, what's the deal, what's the deal)
You should have left a tiny hint
When you made this f...... labyrinth, of stone! (Who the... )
Who the f... builds a Stonehenge? (f... builds a Stonehenge?)

Two Stone Age-guys wondering what to do
Who just said: "Dude, let's build a henge or two!"

I would give anything to know
About the Stonehenge (chor)
Yeah, I would give all I have to give
Would you give them your car? (chor)
(Mmm) Are you kidding me, of course I would have given the car
What car do you drive? (chor)
Drive a Civic, drive a Civic. Drive a Civic!
A car you can trust! (chor)
Never mind the car, let's talk about the henge
What henge is that again? (chor)
It's the Stonehenge, it's the Stonehenge!
God, it is the greatest henge of all!

What's the meaning of Stonehenge? (dual)

Interestingly enough, Woodhenge was an actual thing, and actually there seem to have been several 'henges made of wood: Seahenge

I guess the recent news that it's a graveyard, and originally had nothing to do with druids, hasn't dissuaded them.

Protip: virgin sacrifices FIRST, mass orgies SECOND.  It's far easier that way.

Wow, learn how to spell! It's "lightning", not "lightening", unless you mean for the bolt to lighten something up, like your hair!

We try, man, but nobody will ever admit to being a virgin. Every solstice it's all "don't look at me!"
