I've been successfully boycotting him since last April. I'm sure he's the one that arranged for my umbrella to get turned inside out by the wind this morning and then dumped ice-cold-freezing water from the awning above down my neck for a good measure.

That took some planning, but it shows what a truly evil bastard he is. He will stop at nothing. I'm sure I heard his cackling laughter when it happened.

He put the shark on the subway:

And, just to fuck with my head, he put the cigarette in it's MOUTH instead of its GILLS! (Pissed the shark off too, I'd imagine)

sharks are living dinosaurs and he did pass cigarettes on to ancient dinosaurs... is he trying to make sharks extinct as well? THAT BASTARD!

He was aiming for rush hour but the time difference and jet lag were in your favor.

I'm sure I heard his howl of rage as he realised his mistake. It's quite distinctive. It sounds like the chorus to "Casual Threats.."

This is why you should boycott Frank. He is trying to corrupt your children.

Doesn't sound like he's stopped advocating: "And I've been dipping in my darkness for serotonin boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts" :wink:

I will join this boycott, as I find it particularly difficult to hambone to his songs. Will have to listen to squibbly John Mayer instead.

Additionally, the world ALWAYS turns a touch on its axis. It turns all the way around on its axis, in fact. Daily, even!

"The world has precessed on its axis" sounds less jazzy, my ass!

"Hide your drugs" and talk about spliffs is worse than a seratonin booster, and they seemed to know it was for the kids' show.

Franks advice was about how to get over an MDMA comedown though :D
