Heavy Metal Irony :)

A little funny tid-bit I noticed in my daily issue today.

Turn Down That Racket, Say Morality Police

The Issue
A group of concerned parishioners and soccer moms has petitioned the government of _Susa_ to outlaw heavy metal music, which they fear is a bad influence on youngsters.

The Debate
"Heavy metal music is a plague in our good nation and its God-fearing people!" argues local priest and easy listening advocate Jean-Paul Jones. "Just the other day, I heard a song by some group called Hell's Irate Puppies with a sinful quantity of bass and drum... oh, and there were probably some lines about killing parents, too, I'd imagine! It's vital that we ban this music, and remove this terrible influence from our children's lives! Think of the children!"

When is the last time Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones was concerned about the influences of heavy metal, Zeppelin being the father of modern metal? I thought that was funny that that random name came up in that issue. :)

Wasn't it Jon-Paul Jones, like the Pope? I might be wrong...
