The sad thing is, if they ever played a cover of any Triffids song, most people in the audience would just be like

Although, I can see it already:

Rob33: "OMG U2 have a new song, it's brilliant, it's called Wide Open Road!"

Axver: "It's a song by the Triffids, from the album Born Sandy Devotional. It's been around for almost as long as U2 have."

Rob33: "Well clearly they covered it cause U2 must have written it first! And anyway U2's version is better. Peterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, when did Bono last sing like that?"

Peterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr:
"At the beginning of the song Bono give it his all, and in the middle he hit the low F in 'Road' which he holds for 3 seconds, the last time he do that was on the ZooTV tour singing Bullet the Blue Sky 1993-5-14! This is the best Bono's voice sound since Vertigo tour 5th leg! Also at the end of the song he do a long scream which leads into WTSHNN which is lasts for 6 seconds, which he does not do for ZooTV or Lovetown!"

Axver: "It's a song by David McComb of the Triffids."

mofo82: "How can you say that when the lyrics are clearly that of Bono? Why do you keep lying to me? A well-regarded member of these forums telling me that a song that is clearly a U2 song was written by someone else, mods BAN HIM!"

Oh noes, someone doesn't like my polls. Seriously, I'm so ready for this thing to be over. I don't know that I'd volunteer to do it again.

But hey, that's why I said for people to pipe up when I did something new - I think the end of the last round and this post are the only times anyone has said anything.

Plus, next rounds are 1 day each anyway, so what difference does it make?

Meh.

Someone please correct me if I'm hugely wrong and just embarrassing myself.
Nappy is an offensive term for the natural hair of blacks. The politically correct term is natural hair.

... OK, I totally don't get that. How is the hair of African Americans anything like nappies?

Or does the word have some other origin?

Rob33:

Axver: It's still a Triffids song.

notmofo: I've been watching this whole thing, and I'm not mofo82, and Axver, you're just terrible. You are disgusting.

Axver: OK, mofo82.

notmofo: Seriously, this isn't mofo82. I just hate you for everything you've said to him.

mofo82: notmofo is correct that he is not me and that Axver is horrible.

Headache in a suitcase: i like turtles

Yes, I believe the two are not related.
