"The Piranha got EET" is a line from "Play to Win" on Cut the Crap by the Clash (sort of). This week celebrates that album.
It's also an opportunity to recognize Bernie for the godhead he is (which is to say, a god in his own head).

Next time I stop by your bar, I'm going to bring you a copy. And if there is a dj that night, I'm going to make him play Dictator. LOUD.
