Def Leppard was hardest for me. I kept thinking “Ear Cat?! WTF?” But when my brain finally thought “Hearing Cat” and I noticed the hearing aid it clicked.

5. Incredible Bongo Band

 

Bongo Rock (their "other" hit) has been sampled over 600 times, too, per the google machine. 

As far as Apache goes, that has been sampled 775+ times. 

Worth watching, btw:

I looked this up out of curiosity... and there's no Carl's Jr. in Florida. Though only Wyoming and Oklahoma have both.

You must keep up with the fast food industries more than I... lol... j/k!!!

I'm hoping to find something different in Omaha that's not in the Cities next weekend for fast food. It just needs grilled cheese for 2/3 kids and the other kid, my wife and I can find something in the menu.

Nope, just use the google machine.   🤣  I hadn't heard anything about the new store until seeing your post and going digging, but figured it had to be Carl's Jr, being the same company/menu/etc, and nearly identical branding.

2) I had a friend who grew up in Australia.  They kept describing this treat called “fairy bread”, apparently de rigor at any kids birthday party. A slice of white bread, spread with butter and then completely covered with hundreds and thousands.  Then it’s cut into 4 triangles.  She said any party without fairy bread wasn’t a party.  So one time when we were drunk we made fairy bread.  It’s horrible!  The candy is hard, it falls off and gets everywhere and you might as well just eat a spoonful of sugar 🤢

Ahh, good memories.

What have I got? I got no snacks and I got no respect.

@zwak 

Years ago, early 90's, my sister and I were watching some music award show on tv. They were going to commercial say up next Kris Kross, my did heard and said "I like Chris Cross" and sat down to watch as well. Both my sister and I were looking at each other and laughing. The show came on and Kris Kross performed. A little bit later my dad says something about Chris Cross and we told him he already performed. We told him is was the two kids with their clothes on backwards. He got all frustrated and went back to what he was doing. Still today, my sister and I tease my dad about Chris Cross... aka Kris Cross.

Keep your stick on the ice...
