ANARCHY (oops, sorry- butter) IN THE U.K.!!!!

Here in America we have become sadly used to the sight of our former rock 'n roll idols, counter-culture heroes and youthful ne-er-do-wells selling their images or songs to shill pickup trucks and instant pudding.

But, you know, this is America. We're greedy like that.

But now the rot has officially come to England. I'm not sure if our friend the Manic Street Preacher is ready to see this (though he probably already has), but Johnny Rotten is now flogging-

butter.



oh BOLLOCKS!!

It works for me. I'm ready to hop on a plane to Heathrow just to get me some of that butter!

(And isn't Johnny Rotten also a marine biologist or something?)

One time a few years ago a loose collection of Buffett fans I was a part of lamented how Jimmy had sold out opening Margaritaville stores around the country like Waffle Houses off a seedy interstate exit.

We all ended up figuring aging rock/pop/country stars have to eat too.

Phoebe: Well, Mick Jagger was a graduate of the London School of Economics, so nothing would surprise me.

Beach: It's true, but still... but still.

Holy Shit, that is almost as funny and Shane McGowan advertising dental services!

They all sell out eventually.

I have this strange craving for a stick of butter and an english muffin on the side. With marmalade...if I can find it.

Hey, when a rock star lasts longer than his money does, he has to earn a living somehow.
