I do believe that was Jerry Lee Lewis that sang Great Balls of Fire
2004-03-04 02:01:13 PM  
I think Fireball was Little Richard's label
2004-03-04 02:15:59 PM  
I think Little Richard was born in Anchorage.
2004-03-04 02:33:54 PM  
I think little richard has flaming balls.
2004-03-04 02:37:18 PM  
I think Little Fireball's "Richard" was left in Anchorage.

Okay, who ordered some blue rectangles from Jupiter??
2004-03-04 02:51:38 PM  
If its flaming, and involves balls, its probably right up Little Richard's alley
2004-03-04 02:51:38 PM  
Wtf does Little Richard have to do with Great Balls of Fire? It's Jerry Lee Lewis.
2004-03-04 02:52:43 PM  
Flame War!
2004-03-04 02:53:52 PM  
Speaking of flaming balls, it burns when I pee.

Props to the submitter. Either you get the mistake in the headline, or you don't.

Vonderheide said. "Do you know that the word 'meteorology' has the word 'meteor' in it? And the Latin 'meteor' means 'something in the air.' "

Vonderheide = DORK

/say WTF? Thought someone pulled God's finger
2004-03-04 02:54:16 PM  
So, Anchorage made its saving throw?
2004-03-04 02:55:56 PM  

Who's balls are on fire?...
2004-03-04 02:56:14 PM  
Richard Lewis is paranoid that his balls mya burst into flame.

Do you know the muffin man??? At least that is what ran through my head when I read the statement by Vonderheide. Anchorage: Seattle's northern most suburb.
2004-03-04 02:58:04 PM  
I get the headline.

Just don't pick on the submitter.

Ahh Achorage, where the swans return every spring.
2004-03-04 03:04:38 PM  
Does that mean it's time for the shaman fights?

2004-03-04 03:07:22 PM  
Just an insight from Rock n' Roll History

...It began in 1957 with Richard deserting a bandstand in Australia and heading for a pier where, after seeing "signs" from God, he rejects rock 'n' roll in favor of the ministry

The "signs" being the fireball

"I do believe that was Jerry Lee Lewis that sang Great Balls of Fire"

No, it was Lweis Black that sang Great Balls of Fire. Jerry Lee Lewis was the one who wrote "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe".

2004-03-04 03:10:27 PM  
HAHA definate props to the submitter. I think someone will eventually take those left confused by this post out of their collective misery w/ a link, but let's let it marinate for a few; shall we?

2004-03-04 03:12:12 PM  
no no.. louis tully sang great balls of fire. jerry lee lewis wrote babbitt, arrowsmith, and other painfully boring books.

I think this is the second time someone made that little oversight...
2004-03-04 03:16:33 PM  

"No, it was Lweis Black that sang Great Balls of Fire. Jerry Lee Lewis was the one who wrote "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe".

No, I have it on good authority that "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" was written by Lewis Carroll. I think Jerry Lee Lewis wrote "Alice in Wonderland".
2004-03-04 03:19:17 PM  

Duh. The submitter was hinting at the last Jerry Lee Lewis vs. Little Richard controversey. Hence the "Still" in the headline.
2004-03-04 03:20:30 PM  
Carl Lewis was an Olympic hero.
2004-03-04 03:20:30 PM  
"it burns when I pee."

You're actually thinking of "Why does it hurt when I pee?" which was actually a Zappa song.

I think Jerry Lee Lewis wrote "Alice in Wonderland".

No, Carl Sagan wrote "Alice in Wonderland", Jerry Lee Lewis is the fat guy on tv that begs for money for his sick kids.
2004-03-04 03:34:28 PM  
Lewis Black?

/late to the party
2004-03-04 03:36:00 PM  
So the Jerry Lee Lewis / Little Richard switch-up has now happened twice, perhaps intentionally this time. Does that mean it's a new Fark cliche now?
2004-03-04 03:36:31 PM  
Lewis Black is white. Barry White is black. Never noticed that, dija?
2004-03-04 03:42:23 PM  
I think a little hydro-cortizone cream would help those flaming balls.

Gee, Mask,
Thanks for pointing out that my joke was stolen.
You're the root of all that's evil.
2004-03-04 03:53:35 PM  
Beatle_Matt is right! Farking stupid submitter! HA!
2004-03-04 04:02:00 PM  

I thought i was commenting on your listening habits, and supporting them, but ok :)
2004-03-04 04:05:24 PM  
'sall good, Mask! I was trying to set you up for an easy one. ;)

No, the muscular dystrophy marathon is hosted by Lewis & Clark. Jerry Lee Lewis is the guy who discovered Oregon.
2004-03-04 04:06:17 PM  
I haven't been able to get an article posted forever. I figured out the solution -- you have to make spelling errors and other mistakes to be considered. Like when "LOTR wins 7 awards." Why wouldn't they post one of the countless other postings that got the facts right?
2004-03-04 04:10:26 PM

Did'nt Captain Scarlet kill Captain Black for being in cahoots with those dastardly Mysterions?
