Still Andrew writing: Britt Bergman, one of the inventors of the Advanced theory, can't get no respect in the Advanced Foundation (the ultrasecret Advancement email discussion group) these days. All he wants is for us to talk about some of our favorite band names and why. And he's getting what he calls the "Phil Collins treatment"i.e., no reply at all. (I keep meaning to email him some but then I remember that I have all six episodes of "Dancing With the Stars" on tape and I get all distracted and end up doing nothing.) Britt mentions Foreigner as a particularly hilarious name for a rock group, something you couldn't get away with these days. On the other hand, what else are you gonna call someone from a different country? "Differently nationalitied"? Other ideas: Golden Earring for not meaning anything, and the Eagles for being desperately generic.
Make Britt happy and mention some band names in the comment field and why they're funny. Here's mine: Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds--why'd Joe Frank get both his names in there?
