    Hmmmmm….Thought it was yet another one of those grilling jokes you get this time of year….Other than that, I don’t have a clue how it translates to roofers’ music….I mean roofers can be irritable, but…..Now a truck with a ten thousand nails in it from several nail guns I could understand….

    I think the devastation is caused by the interaction of the two genres of Music.

    Matter and antimatter. Or music and antimusic.

    I like Alice’s (from Cul-de-Sac) version better: Turkey Through a Straw.

    Mallett really has a grudge against Journey. This isn’t the first time he’s dissed them in his strip.

    As well he should. Journey will be hateable until the lights go down in the city.

    There’s ordinary ‘Pop’ music which is often fairly poor and then there is the occasional band that plays ‘Pop’ and does a very good job musically, “Journey” and “Fleetwood Mac” were ‘Pop’ bands that I enjoyed and I also liked them before they changed from being ‘Blues’ to ‘Pop’. Journey’s first Album and Fleetwood Mac for years.

    That “Turkey In The Straw” noise on ice cream trucks is just pure evil. It makes me want to destroy, and I’m not that type of person. Putting a copy of the city ordinance under the nose of the the driver does not always stop them. I’m happy to leave it to the roofers if they’ll step up.

    When I was a kid the ice cream trucks just rang a bell “jingle, jingle, jingle” and all the kids heard it perfectly well and came running.

    I don’t see this as a criticism of Journey. He’s just saying that it presents a stark contrast to an ice cream truck version of “Turkey in the Straw.”

    You can’t be serious. It is the most severe criticism he can offer. This is about bad music blared out in the open in summer, and how you can’t avoid it if you go outside. It’s a something we’ve all experienced, and to illustrate it, he picked the two most annoying things he could think of. The explosion comes from the imagined intersection of two horrifyingly BAD kinds of music. While they may present a contrast genre-wise, Mallett’s point is that they are exactly the same in their capacity to irritate.
    Mr. Nobody has it right. You’re way off.

    I prefer ‘Turkey’ to hearing ABBA. They may be nice people, or not, but the way they sound makes me want to hurl the radio out the window.
