My Fair Fergie

How come every time you come around my London, London Bridge wanna come down?

Source: Song lyrics from London Bridge, by Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas

Explanation: Remember, this is from the singer of My Humps. The meaning is probably not much deeper than that thing that hens should be doing with some bird that isn't a chicken or a rooster. So, turning to less colorful subject matter, let's just think about some other things that fall down:

  • Humpty Dumpty
  • The Tacoma Narrows Bridge
  • At least one person on every drive to the hoop in a women's basketball game
  • Soccer players, but only when breathed upon
  • The company stock price
  • The ball in this game (which is conveniently called "Fall Down")
  • Every other ball Terrell Owens was thrown last season
  • Every other ball Rex Grossman threw last season
  • Ashes, ashes, we all do
  • Anything you drop from a building, like for instance, a cat
  • Is it too soon for a Gerald Ford joke?
  • And, of course:

Special Blog Bonus:

You know, this video is edited for television. Kids watch it. It would be on MTV if they showed videos anymore. And still, it seems just a little inappropriate. Oh well. If you prefer something a little less racy, here's a video on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse, narrated by the most boring professor you ever had in college.

Nice list, don't forget Michael Douglas in Falling Down either.

Does fergie know that London bridge is in Arizona? Maybe coming around London and influencing a bridge in 'zona is some butterfly effect/spooky action at a distance quantum mechanical commentary by the Fergster?

Not sure if anyone noticed, but the Glass Joe picture is a link. I thought the tribute page was funny.

And Rog, you are now the first person to ever use "quantum mechanical commentary" in a sentence about Fergie. Congratulations!
