Today, with HST dead, I figured nothing could bring a smile to my face.

Today, submitter proved me wrong. Nice work.
2005-02-21 04:45:02 PM  
So is this one we can vote on? Whats up with this?
2005-02-21 04:46:34 PM  
Anyone care to define pompetus?
2005-02-21 04:54:46 PM  
The answer you seek lies here, D_I_A.
2005-02-21 05:09:09 PM  
At least he wasn't named Sue.
2005-02-21 05:19:19 PM  
Well, was his name Maurice?
2005-02-21 05:26:24 PM  
If I work at it for years, I won't come up with a headline like this. Nice!
2005-02-21 05:36:27 PM

What are the chances that the detective's name will be Billy Mack?
2005-02-21 06:08:25 PM  
Did this story happen to take place down in Texas?

Sorry, didn't RTFA, don't know exactly what the facts is.

2005-02-21 08:45:42 PM  
anybody who's ever travelled from Phoenix, Arizona all the way to Tacoma would know what pompatus means
2005-02-21 08:46:45 PM

Some people call me the space cowboy.
2005-02-21 08:47:35 PM  
Some people call me the gangster of love.
2005-02-21 08:48:39 PM  
I put a bullet in Maurice...
2005-02-21 08:48:55 PM  
Being named Steve Miller, I had to do a double take, I was like "What did I farking do now!?"

/returns to normal life.
2005-02-21 08:49:08 PM  
oh my dear god i hate that song. That is, in all my honest opinion, the single worst classic rock song ever.
2005-02-21 08:50:37 PM  
Hotel California is, without a doubt, worse.

*huff* don't tell the wife, man.
2005-02-21 08:53:27 PM  
Don't forget everything by Bob Seeger.
2005-02-21 08:54:01 PM  
*huff* don't tell the wife, man.

Then quit missing your cues, and put down that chicken.
2005-02-21 08:55:18 PM  
if this is gonna turn into a classic rock discussion thread i'll stick around for awhile
2005-02-21 08:56:50 PM  
Was his last name Connor?
2005-02-21 08:57:19 PM  
American Pie....worst
2005-02-21 08:58:04 PM  
You're wrong and I disrespect your opinion, SunUvABia.
2005-02-21 09:00:10 PM  
Some people call me........
.....all the time.

2005-02-21 09:00:14 PM  
When they asked him if his name was Maurice he probably answered [singing] "SOME PEOPLE CALL ME MAURRRRRRRRICE, CAUSE I SPEAK OF THE POMPETOUS OF LOOOOOOVE."

Then the two guys looked at eachother, and shot Maurice out of principle.

How about a name like Anferney? Best Letterman top 10: Why the Orlando Magic lost the NBA Championship. Anferney Hardaway couldn't shoot enough Bafkets.
2005-02-21 09:08:38 PM  
pompatus: not a word

in the "bad classic rock song" category, everything by foreigner is 100 times worse than anything by steve miller or the eagles.

Dammit! You beat me to it!
2005-02-21 09:10:40 PM  
But did they ever catch the man who shot Libery Valance?

"Is your name Maurice?"
2005-02-21 09:29:03 PM  
Ahh..the battle of opinions. That's useful.

/goes to stick a pin in his lifesize mannequin of Steve Harvey, complete with lifelike nipples, chest hair, and toenails! Squeeze his tummy and hear him groan.

//I needed that.
2005-02-21 09:49:23 PM  
Today sucked, but I really enjoyed that headline.

All this time, I was sure it was the prophetess of love. That makes marginally more sense.
