Now that's just funny!

Sounds like they could use a lot of bacon soap...

How do you stop a volcano? By dumping concrete in it - oh, yeah, that'll work. For a few minutes.

This is just a "guy" thing - an excuse to launch big objects into the air (or even a volcano!!) and see what happens.

maybe they should instead dump pepto-abysmal in there to plug it up.

Annie, there's a shortage of virgins to toss in, instead.

Somebody's been watching too many Tommy Lee Jones movies.

Don't women pay alot of money for hot mud baths? Start a spa.

Next on YouTube,....
"Worlds largest ben-wah balls launched into orbit"

*thinks of a bit from Austin Powers*

Subterranean pressure is forcing the mud up to the surface. Check.

Create 1100 lb. balls of concrete and chain them together. Check.

Drop the chains of balls into the "volcano" which is being driven by enormous subterranean pressure. Check.

Wait until the chains of balls become projectiles wreaking havoc on villages ever farther away from the "volcano. Check...errr...ummmmmmm...well wait a sec...

Ooooh, AFKAT, you're right, this could get ugly.

*starts popcorn machine*

Key quote: "We have been able to insert four chains of concrete balls today..."

OK, so they're putting anal beads into a volcano. I'm sure that will appease it.

-aim projectiles at Iraq & N. Korea...check

-prepare 'oopsie, sorry 'bout that' letter for above...check

writer132, NTTAWWT

No where in that article did it talk about a rock band named Indonesian Mud Volcano! Dave, are you ok?

RC - Dave is snot ok. He's better than ok, which is why the coolest people hang here. Read up on your acronyms on the left side of the blog, please.

So once again the question of whether they can save the day or not comes down to having enough balls....

Rats, volcanoes, it's all the same...

Invite the Japanese over for some volcano-smoked fish - they'll eat anything if you market it right.

*pulls up a chair next to CH*

This is going to be a really cool show! How far can a volcano shoot a chain of concrete balls I wonder?

(*pssst*, Annie... Iraq's already gotten their delivery of projectiles... may I suggest Iran instead? Or maybe Venezuala?)

***SNORK*** @ Annie's culinary observation. Sadly, I know from personal experience that she's right.

Superman, But do their balls hang low? When the mud is erupting, do they wobble to and fro? Do they leave them in a straight line? Or tie them in a bow?

And a belated **SNORK** @ writer132, NTTAWWT.

Clark, can't you assume your other identity and DO something?

Annie, I know Dave. He posted one of my photoshops here on his blog back in 2005:

making fun of this guy:

Maybe they need THESE

This puts my potato launcher to shame.

RC - we're very protective of our Dave - I thought you were dissin' him. We'll switch our tasers to 'stun', but we are watchin' you. ;)

snork @ JD - yeah, Clark - go find yourself a phonebooth or something.

Gadfly - that is not necessary.

If these Indonesians were smart, they'd build a resort around this and let white devils pay to soak in the mud.

Instead, they just stand around dipping their balls in it.....

Annie, did that need a NSFW?

I think the PT Lapindo Brantas energy firm owes someone a big apology...

Goodnes gracious, great balls of fire!

"Balls on a Chain" WBAGNFAPunkRB

"Balls on a chain"

Isnt that known as marriage?

Sir, sir! We have a situation where enormous pressure is being released slowly, reducing the chances for another spectacular Krakatoa event. We can't allow that, can we? We would be less likely to blow up or incinerate our citizens! Nobody would even know where we are if we didn't get smacked by sunamis, or periodically blown to smithereens!

Easy lad! Join me over here with these oogling white devils; this should be good!

Matt - to you, yes.

Didn't AC/DC do a song about Concrete Balls or something? Oh, and virgins only work once for volcanoes. After that you are screwed. Or so I've heard, Baligrl.

Beppie: Well, of course that only works once. After you're screwed, you're not a virgin anymore.

There is a procedure to reverse that,.....just sayin

There is? Someone, please use it on Britney.

Gadfly: a revirgination?

Hymenoplasty,......

*can't believe he said that out loud*

Gadfly - gesundheit.

(actually, if you had that done, it 'gesundheit.')

Might look something like
This

Gadfly, how on earth did you get a camera into Britney's shower?

The volcano that is

*zips in*

I can't believe you said that either, Gadfly, but it's good info to have.

Thanks. :)

Annie, I JUST got that.


heeheee

Be careful - if you get a bad doctor, you could be whistling dixie.

Indonesian mud volcano...the result of too much chile in your bami goreng.

Whistling Dixie?

I was referring to your surgical procedure, Gadfly. Done improperly, you could be singing a different tune...down below.

Speaking of tunes:

Some people say East Java’s covered in mud
They’re using concrete balls to stop the flood
Concrete and chains and moving cranes
I just wonder what they’re using for brains.

You load concrete balls, what do you get?
A volcano smoldering; mud deeper yet
Say, Brantas, don’t you bail out; because you know
It’s just the start of your company’s woes.

You woke up one mornin’ and the sun didn’t shine
It was raining mud; you knew that was a bad sign
Exploding volcano made your blood run cold
And the big boss said, “Hell, plug up that hole!”

You load concrete balls, what do you get?
A volcano smoldering; mud deeper yet
Say, Brantas, don’t you bail out; because you know
It’s just the start of your company’s woes.

You went out that morning and heard folks raisin’ Cain
Fighting hot mud, but it was all in vain
You thought for awhile; came up with your idea:
Concrete spheres might halt volcanic diarrhea!

You load concrete balls, what do you get?
A volcano smoldering; mud deeper yet
Say, Brantas, don’t you bail out; because you know
It’s just the start of your company’s woes.

If you see mud comin’, better run and hide
A lotta men didn’t, a lotta men died
Your contraption of concrete and steel
Might not get this crater’s deep wound to heal.

You load concrete balls, what do you get?
A volcano smoldering; mud deeper yet
Say, Brantas, don’t you bail out; because you know
It’s just the start of your company’s woes.

AWbh, I was thinking you meant if he messed up he'd need to
look away
look away
look away

"Concrete spheres might halt volcanic diarrhea!"

Bravo JD,... There's 6 words you almost never get to use together

Thanks, Gad. I thought it had a certain "flow"...
;-)

*Snork at ducky, lol.

Oh no, now i'll be singing 16 tons all night. /sigh

I sent in this one. Thought the title was catchier.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...............

Linky no worky...

I dunno about that hismaniaplaster stuff, I thot all you hadda do to "revirginate" somebuddy wuz to use an "unscrewdriver" ...

*Can't believe he actually posted that*

*presses worn down Annie and Ducky-snork keys*

Hot slag, summer in Jakarta
Wouldn't wanna be where a volcano's gonna farta.
Get down, lava's gettin' busy
Look at all the bubbles, it sure is gettin' fizzy.

All around, fishies looking half dead
Baking on the beachside, hotter than a match head.

But now there's concrete balls
They're gonna save them all
Come-on come-on you're kidding me
Screw this up and you're history.

And babe, don't you know it's so stupid
That the boys can't get it right
In Jakarta, hot and humid
In Jakarta, hot and humid

Concrete, dump it in the ocean
A finger in the dike and slowin' down the motion
Hot dang, looking for salvation
Gotta plug that hole 'fore it blows us to tarnation.
Till it's squeezing, pushing half lit,
Bulging up the coast, gonna pop just like a big zit.

But at night it's a different sea
It glows like dragon pee,
Come-on come-on now don't you cry
Despite the heat here's mud in your eye...

*enthusiastic applause* for Annie! Such scintillating similes! ;-)

Annie and Ducky - I think you should consider going on tour! BRAVA!

Giant Concrete Balls
Giant Concrete Balls
Giant Concrete Balls
Giant Concrete Balls
Giant Concrete Balls

kills me every time I say it..

also wbagnfarb

Thanks, guys....I'm off to pick up my kids...see ya.

OMG, Yearning! If you're not a virgin anymore, what's left in this life??

I'm ever Indonesian society
God's gift to volcanic notoriety
I always fill my caldera
The event is never small
The social pages say I've got
The biggest balls of all

CHORUS:
I've got big balls
I've got big balls
And they're such big balls
Dirty big concrete balls
And he's got big balls
And she's got big balls
But we've got the biggest balls of them all

And my balls are always bouncing
My mud volcano always full
And everybody comes and comes again
If your name is on the guest list
No one can take you higher
Everybody says I've got
Volcanic balls of fire

CHORUS

Some balls are held for charity
And some in muddy duress
But when they're held for pleasure
The concrete balls I like best
My balls are always bouncing
To the left and to the right
It's my belief that my big balls
Should be held every night

CHORUS

And I'm just itching to tell you about them
Oh we had such wonderful fun
Mud geyser, crabs, crayfish...

It's a gusher

'Bye, Annie!

*Snork* at Hammie! LOVE the caldera!

*blushes*

Lol, all you mothersuckers!!! Great songs!!!

I got an inchoate one, but I'm afraid somebody's gonna grab it first.

*puts thinking cap on*

Now go watch 24 and nobody use up my song.

LOL, Hammond! Good one!

*SNORKS* to Hammie, Annie & Ducky!!!! I bow to you as I post my lame rendition with sincere apologies to The King!

Lord Jakarta,
I feel my temperature rising
Higher higher
Its burning through to my soul

Plug me up with
Concrete balls butt I feel the fire
My magma is flaming
I dont know which way to go

Your balls just lift me higher
Cuz my head's about to cry for
The virgins that you promised
With burning love

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
I feel my temperature rising
Help me, Im flaming
I must be five thousand and nine
Burning, burning, burning
And nothing can cool me
I just might blow up
But I feel fine

Cause your balls just lift me higher
Cuz my head's about to cry for
Those virgins that you promised
With burning love

Its coming closer
The balls are now out of my body
Please help yourself
You need to get to get far far away
Its hard to breath
And my balls are just a-leaving
Lord Jakarta,
Im burning a hole where you lay

Cause your concrete balls lift me higher
And my head's about to cry for
Those virgins that you promised
With burning love
With burning love
Ah, ah, burning love
Im just a hunk, a hunk of burning love balls
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love balls
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love balls
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love

Sioukie, you rock!! Xlnt!

Okay, here's my embarrasingly meager offering. Remember 3 things:

1. Think Buddy Holly

2. Think Linda Ronstadt, and, yes, Virgina, there is a number 3. I don't...

3. Think this is gonna work.

Oops, I mean Siouxie.

*Holds lighter aloft for Hammie's semi-obscure AC/DC parody*

Stevie, thanks!! you can call me Sioukie LOL

STEVIE!!! you sound GREAT!! is that really you???

*swooons*

THAT was awesome!!

Siouxie - wooohooo!

Her name was Lava,
She was a hottie.
But that was many years ago,
With that bigshot Krakato....a.

*getting my geetar ready for the next song*

aww...thanks Annie! but Stevie just blew us all!

And he didn't even hafta swallow!

YAY, Siouxie! Stevie, I can't download your link! :-(

thanks Ducky! it's an honor coming from you... ;-)

Lol, all o youse, for round 2. Love the Spoonful, aw. One of my favorite groups, in their day.

No, sxi, that was my house guest, Barry Manilow. He was about to do a parody of Copacabana but someone cuter beat him to it. (Of course it was me. Who else would waste the time it took to mess around like that?)

Ducky - maybe try "save," like to your desktop, if it gives you the option, then "play" once you've downloaded it. That's what I was afraid of, btw.

Stevie, nope. It acts like it's downloading, but never opens a new window, or even gives me any options regarding "open" or "save"; it just disappears. Dang it! I wanna hear it! *Pouts*

Hm..one more idea...right click on my link, then click "save target as..." If that works, you'll know right away, but it may take a minute to download.

If that doesn't work, ask Siouxie how she did it. lol.

Stevie - too funny - I had to wait until the boys were in bed to hear it, just in case. Very good!

Ducky...I just clicked on it and it saved and then I opened it up. It took a little while to d/l.

Stevie...really good! your 'house guest' of course!! I'd love to hear more of him!

I am now going to bed. Sweet dreams ya'll!

STEVIE!!!! That worked! AWESOME Holly/Ronstadt SNORKS to you--and why aren't you getting paid for this? I (along with Siouxie, Hammie, and Annie, too, I'll bet) would be honored to be your songwriting collaborators. I also play a mean kazoo.

*Hums It's So Easy to Fall in Love*

*flaps off to bed*

*sneaks back in to leave some ice for Stevie's swollen head*

you can interpret that as you wish.

nite nite...don't let the blogbugs bite.

Ty, ladies. Aw, your turn to pick up the old Uncle Martin.

I missed the mud volcano! Why didn't you tell me?

*Typepad twitches from the stress of Monday's blogothon/24 simulcast, and keels over in a dead faint. Oh -- it's scheduled maintenance...*

Wow... what an outpouring of musical talent! Encore! Encore!

*tosses rose petals at the Blog Singer-Songwriters*

A lovin' spoonful of 16 tons of whistling Dixie at the Copa. Elvis and Buddy Holly have left the blog.

*wonders if a combination of Kaopectate™ and karaoke would be efficacious*

Indonesia's in fallin' mud
Indonesia's in fallin' mud
People tell me mud still falls
So here I go, droppin' concrete balls
Well Indonesia (mud volcano, mud volcano, mud volcano)
Indonesia (mud volcano, mud volcano, mud volcano)
Indonesia (mud volcano, mud volcano, mud volcano)
Well Jakarta's mucked and
We're all filthy

Indonesia's in fallin' mud
Indonesia's in fallin' mud
Molten earth the ground regurged
Makin' entire villages submerged
Well Indonesia (mud volcano, mud volcano, mud volcano)
Indonesia (mud volcano, mud volcano, mud volcano)
Indonesia (mud volcano, mud volcano, mud volcano)
Well Jakarta's mucked and
We're all filthy, wo oh oh

Indonesia's in fallin' mud
Indonesia's in fallin' mud

You should attach the *wav file too ;-)

btw, I do play the guitar (acoustic) and haven't played in ages! but you DON'T wanna hear me sing!

Okay, here's my embarrasingly meager offering. Remember 3 things:

1. Think Buddy Holly

2. Think Linda Ronstadt, and, yes, Virgina, there is a number 3. I don't...

"Virgina"...hmm, very appropriate for this thread.

Chained Concret Balls is a good name for a rock band
