Oh, drinking Coca-Cola inside the swimming-pool? Be careful with digestion breakings :D

Nice MySpace site, by the way.

huge coke? uh huh, uh huh...

reminds me of another ... joke:

a man is posing naked in front of a mirror, saying: "ahhh... one more inch and I would be a KING!!"

in that moment his wife comes in, saying: "Yeh rite! And one inch less and you'd be a QUEEN!"

:-D

Quite good for a German Your Majesty...if I may be so bold. The Spider bit was in reference to his little tuft of hair proudly clinging to life on the front of his big Omen Heid. Hence the official Simple Minds nickname.
