Ikea rocks

This is very silly but I was listening to the estimable Messrs Maconie and Radcliffe earlier on the wireless who mentioned a new game they'd been enjoying along the lines of the "what's your pr0n name or West Indian pace bowler name*" I have to admit to doing several LOLs.

This one involves making up Scandinavian rock band names and their members using items culled from the Ikea catalogue. Like Molger Sniglar, singer with Swedish art rockers Gosa Mjuk. Apparently he's been seen out with Florera Snartig from Jokkmokk. I'd imagine their bassist, Snudda Knodd, will be really pissed off.

As a listener quite rightly pointed out, there's probably someone in Stockholm doing exactly the same thing with the Argos catalogue and wetting themselves over Electrolux Wii.



*If someone knows how to do that one, I'd be grateful. I think it revolves around your mother's maiden name and where you live. Or something. Like mine would be Coleman Ashford.

**It's actually the sitting US president at the time of your birth plus the name of the last seaside town you visited. So my West Indian fast bowler name is Eisenhower Dymchurch. Doesn't work, that one.

Excellent game. I knew there was a reason for keeping those old ikea catalogues.

I need to tell them to send me a catalog. My identity is getting stale.

It was fun being a porn style for a while. Formula: Your first pet's name and your first street name.

I was Penny Flambeau for a spell. Rocking.

Porn star name - Sugar Latrobe - which isn't all that bad, really

But West Indie name would be "Truman Tampa" - which is just silly.
