WEEKEND HUM (08-19-07)
TOP 7 HUMMERS OF THE WEEK
Wow. Free Press foodie Deb Salomon puts down the cheese grater and writes about the things that piss her off. She rants forcefully about the overabundance of stupid reality shows, dog fighting, and the whole airline mess.
DS leaves us chuckling at the end as she moans about starlets driving drunk. She stops, and then exclaims: "Starlets Driving Drunk. Hey, that's a good name for a rock band."
Cool, Debbo. We make up band names, too. How's this one: The Columnists. Catchy, eh?
Got a band name? Use the comments, friend.
