WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Band Names.
And their meaning. For instance:

Steeley Dan is the name of the giant dildo in Barbarella.

When Nazis were hanged at Spandau after the war the bodily spasms and jerking about they suffered was called the SPANDAU BALLET.

The DOOBIE brothers needs no explanation.

Any more? Post em up.

Tygers of Pang Tang........

Saw them back in 80's

I had to look it up on Wikipedia.

" The name is derived from Pan Tang, a fictional archipelago in Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné fantasy series whose wizards keep tigers as pets".

Thought it would be more interesting TBH.

Joy Division - groups of Jewish women in the concentration camps during World War II kept for the sexual pleasure of Nazi soldiers. New Order bit of a NAZI obsession there. Like Spandau Ballet.

Captain Beefheart.

Don Van Vliet's uncle's party trick was to get his dick out, squeeze it until the helmet went purple and tell onlookers "it looks like a big ol' beef heart".

Which is nice.

And early doors, they were not sure whether to call the band The Pink Floyd Sound or The Tea Set.

I think they got it right in the end..

Self-described as "Sick Twisted Porno Death/ Black Metal" Vaginal Defecation are a duo from Washington. Do not Google this band unless you want to be traumatised and experience flashbacks for the foreseeable. Seriously.
