Really rather good

Spotted at Le Monde, to which respect is due:



And while I'm at it, AC/DC in ascii art:

I must say, I did not have you pegged for an AC/DC fan but I suppose we are a broad church.

A lout from Melbourne once told me an anecdote about an AC/DC concert, which is emphatically not for any maiden aunts that might have blundered into this forum by mistake.

The band were doing a little number called "The Jack", which for anyone who doesn't know it is an extended piece of single entendre about contracting a social disease. ("But she was a dirty b----/She had the Jack" etc)

Breaking off from a drum solo, the late Bon Scott felt moved to address his flock. Marching purposefully to the front of the stage, he pointed a Zola-like finger at the audience and declaimed:

"You've got the Jack!"

All: "WE'VE GOT THE JACK!"

Bon: "Yeah, all youse c---s have got the f------ Jack!"

All: "WE'VE GOT THE JACK!"

There is a recording of this parley, so I'm told. It has something of the benediction about it - as might be delivered in some diabolical "antipode" of St Peter's Square.

P - Happy to have been of service.

T - I would not say I am their number one fan, but I like a few of their more raucous songs every once in a while. Thank you for the amusing anecdote. Apparently they had no idea of the other meaning of AC/DC when they named themselves.

'Apparently they had no idea of the other meaning of AC/DC when they named themselves.'

A bit more self awareness and we could have had The Lesbian Light Orchestra...

STB - a genuine laugh out loud there.
