(Me and @DennyMayo had this pictured conversation last Wednesday, which should give it better context.)
Nobody else is going to find this all that funny but I was thinking about 4 Non Blondes the other day because their songs were all about childhood, and problems, and etc.
Anyway, I started wondering how they got their name, and Wikipedia provides the most oddly over-detailed description. I felt a need to post it because it made me laugh.
The band picked the name after an incident in a San Francisco park where the band members were having pizza and talking about Gremlins 2.
A family was walking by and their little boy wanted to grab some left over pizza to feed the birds. His name was Michael and he had on a blue shirt with jeans from the Gap, as well as a San Diego Padres baseball cap.
He was told by his parents, “No, don’t touch that, that’s dirty from all the birds and people around here,” and they proceeded to give the band members a dirty look as they kept walking along on the sidewalk doing a silly dance.
The family was supposedly very blonde, so they decided to call themselves 4 Non Blondes.
For real, why is that story so detailed. One of the seven people who were there must have written the entry. I’m not even sure this is funny. My blog is off-kilter today.
Another good band name would be Wickerpedia.
Like people would come to the shows and throw baskets and cheap porch sets at the stage. lol
