Original Lyrics: G Shocks, I’ve got a crazy Dom collection…


I’m not sure whether he’s collecting crazy nuns or just has a crazy collection of generic nuns (he certainly has a collection of badly drawn nuns) but that’s by-the-by. Anyway… Bloody. Great. Song.

Song/Artist: Chasing Pavements – Adele

Original lyrics: Should I give up or should I just keep cashing pavements?

Anyway, here’s Fat Mike from NOFX coming to terms with a breakfast tragedy. Stay strong Mike, stay strong…

Song/Artist: Try – Macy Grey

Original Lyrics: Though I try to hide it, it’s clear; My world crumbles when you are not near…
