|"What do you mean I'm too late for |
my Flock of Seagulls audition?
You know what? You're fired!""
For those of you who didn't live through the 1980s (could be worse. You could have lived through the 1970s) and so are wondering, "Al, what in the hell are you talking about?", here's a little explanation to get the joke. Which you still may think sucks. But at least you'll get it.
A Flock of Seagulls were an 80s English new wave and synthpop (whatever the frik that is) band originally formed in Liverpool by brothers Michael "Mike" Score and Alister "Ali" James Score, along with Francis Lee "Frank" Maudsley and Paul Reynolds. Their one big hit was "I Ran." They broke up in...screw it, I don't feel like looking up the exact date...after their popularity waned and their mousse ran out.
Probably still don't get it, huh? Well, a picture is worth a thousand words (two thousand after inflation):
|A Flock of Seagulls in all their glory. |
Frankly, I think the guy on the end with his hands in his pants looks embarrassed.
