I had this really cool English teacher who was in a punk band. They wrote a song called "Ozzy Osbourne Ate A Bat." He gave his tapes out to students.

/nobody failed that class if I remember

The bat deserved it.

"The Bat Incident" always seems to overshadow "The Dove Incident" which for my money was much, much worse:

This.

He thought the bat was a prop. He knew the doves were real.

He must have the genetic fortitude of the top 0.0001 percent of human beings. Really is an amazing life story.

I heard a friend suggested he "get a pompadour hat" but Ozzy though he said "bite the head off a bat", the rest is history

I've read the story before and just skimmed it again to make sure I remembered it.

Polished a bottle of Brandy before meeting with the record execs.

It's less "super evil" and more "desperate drunk who will do anything to get out of a boring business meeting in order to get back to drinking" in my book.

I mean, I do the same thing, except I just tell clients that their production support issue is an identified problem that will be ready in the next update.

I'd be more impressed if he hit a bed off a hat.

Funny thing as that link leads to the ten most crazy rock myths.   Only Ozzys was actually true, though.  Some context, to be fair... It was the bark at the moon tour, so the stage was covered in fake rubber bat props.  Ozzy, being ever the showman, grabbed a prop and bit the head off.  So, when true, it's out of context.  The dove thing did happen.  There are pics online, but don't know if they are real or staged.

It's a beloved Christmas tradition in Germany...
