UPDATE: The same store later played the Smashmouth cover of "I'm a Believer." I have got to stop shopping at Hoyston's Tinned "Meats" and Brown Rice Emporium.

I'll contribute up to $1000 for a lawyer if you want to burn that place to the ground.

Count me in.

Also, I heard Dancing Queen at IKEA today. As I said on Facebook, if only there were also an appearance by Bjron Borg, Stellan Skarsgard, and the Swedish Chef, I would reached peak Swede.

The boss is, as is her habit, watching Coronation Street, and one of the characters just sang, "We built this city, we built this city on sausage rolls." The subversion* continues …

Quite a well known pun on the original lyrics over here, in fact I'm sure it has been referred to in this thread.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.
