Maybe he was wearing skis while he was driving?

HeckMonkey: I've never had the Boobies before.

Well, HeckMonkey, get some money and hire some boobies.

Another filter victim. I really love when it totatlly changes the context of the user's post. Then again, I get enjoyment out of just about anything, since I have no life. . .

Billy Joel is just another car in search of its tree.
2003-01-26 08:51:13 AM  
It's a good thing none of you pinko left wing commie farkers was hugging the tree at the time.

Maybe we should paint the lines two inches wider and make the signs bigger.

Or maybe he's just getting too farking old to drive.

But he was probably drunk.

Aren't you getting your pregame on a bit early?

who is Billy Joel?!?! Only one of the greatest artists ever! He sings, he plays the piano, he writes his own music! Billy Joel is a God!

It would be much safer to just sit at home and masturbate.
2003-01-26 12:42:45 PM  
Billy Joel fine after hitting stable, horse is not doing so well though.

"Crashing my car,
I'm the piano man...
Crashing my car tonight...
'Cause we're all in the mood for an accident,
and booze got me feeling alright..."

2003-01-26 12:51:00 PM  
I think it was a suicide attempt. He just found out Christie really left him.
2003-01-26 12:59:17 PM  
its still Billy Joel to me
2003-01-26 01:10:13 PM

Expect an updated episode of [image from pages.preferred.com too old to be available] real soon.

...but offstage...things were coming apart...
2003-01-26 01:21:28 PM  
And you told me not to drive
but I made it home alive
so you say that only proves that I'm insane

Lordargent--props for the obscure lyrics.

McBotulism - "She also did a series of awful informercials..." Is there any other kind?

Have you ever seen the Girls Gone Wild infomercial? It is not awful...

JDJoeE So did his car start a fire when it hit the tree?

It was already burning as the wheels were turning.

"Thought I was the Duke of Earl
When I made it with a redhead girl
In a Chevrolet..."

(/keeping the faith)

I probably would have crashed too...

Marc Bolan...Sonny Bono....one of those Kennedys...

Yes, my friends, it is proof that trees are of SATAN! We must back our president in his decision to eliminate these hell-spawned botanical deathtraps! The bigger the tree, the bigger the danger! Those Redwoods and national parks are deaths waiting to happen! Do you want to lose your possessions and loved ones to a cruel, heartless chunk of wood? We must deforest every square inch of this nation, to save the millions, and help the poor, flannel-clad folks in the lumbering industry. God bless America and chainsaws!

...save a rockstar! Kill a tree today!

No, that's Eminem.

[image from i.cnn.net too old to be available]my buddies yelled at some guy at the diner for talking on his cell phone too loud, turned out to be him. maybe they cut his brakes
2003-01-26 03:44:53 PM  
Elton John and Billy Joel are friends, Billy Joel isn't gay. Elton John IS gay, Billy Joel is NOT!
2003-01-26 06:00:01 PM  
Tree didn't start the fire.

Tree's got a way.

Tree's always a woman.

It's still rock off-road to me.

And if he can't drive with a broken back
At least he can polish the fenders

2003-01-26 08:38:30 PM  
I love billy joel :(
2003-01-26 09:48:45 PM  
They've already taken Bono and a Kennedy from us, and now they seem to be after musicians. I wonder what those trees are up to?
2003-01-26 09:49:54 PM  
Sonny Bono, that is. Don't know about that U2 stuff, but it'd be just like those damn trees to do it...
2003-01-27 02:58:04 PM  
Good thing he forgot to pick up Warren Zevon ("my ride's here...") - never mind.
Seriously, those two ought to do a duet while they still can. WZ's lungs aren't getting any better.

Hey, I live out on long island, not 5 miles from where he crashed. Friend of mine saw the crash, they pulled him out of the car and he slugged a firefighter. Fabiano, the police cheif out here, used to be a coke dealer, and he cut him loose. They didn't take a breathylizer, glossed it all over. He was drunk as a skunk. But you knew that. oh...another one of my friends has it on videotape

heh heh
