New Metal Is 100 Times Lighter Than Styrofoam, But Still Shiny

Mythusmage Opines has the story about “New metal 100 times lighter than Styrofoam” while there was some John Denver show on the telly.

This led me to wonder aloud: what maximal mis-interpretation of that title would be most likely to make Stacy’s head ‘splode?

    Air Supply?  Seriously?

    That can only be morally justified in posts about the decline of Western culture.

    If I find myself in hell, Air Supply will be on the playlist… and clowns will be tormenting me.

    And Firefall, too.

    I can’t believe Smitty put that up. 

    I tried to warn everyone that ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” would have unforeseen consequences . . .

    When I saw new metal in the title, and some sort of video in the post, I was figuring Jon Huntsman and Gary Johnson formed a band, and were thrashing it out!
    Rock on, Wayne and Garth, err Jon and Gary
