I always thought they formed Cracker.

Aldershot Von Gas Explosion is the name of my Emo/Screamo Huey Lewis cover band. Eerie the difference a single letter makes...

This is exactly why you need to roll down a window when you fart in a van.

Leaking gas cylinder? I think Alder van was shot by space lasers.

I would like to have a word with anybody who voted for this one. I mean, talk about a stretch.

Aldershot, eh? Take-away prawn vindaloo and four pints of lager each will take the paint off of the loo doors in the sergeants' mess.

Could it be (and I'm just spit balling here) that you maybe aren't the best judge?

Or (and I'm not spit balling at all), us Farkers aren't known to be the brightest bunch.  I could see if it rhymed, or had the same number of syllables but the mere fact that the word Van is in it doesn't automatically make it a good fit for a Camper Van Beethoven mention.  Don't get me wrong, I love them and am happy to see their music referenced, but you could have just as easily tied your article to Rip Van Winkle, and it would have been just as funny.

/congrats on your green
