    You know the song "Flavor of the Weak", by American hi-fi? There is a section of lyrics that I cant figure out. I'm sure everyone who knows the song know what I am talking about..."Her boyfriend, he don't know, anything about her. He's...too stoned.....??????????"

    I say its "to know", but others have told me "Nintendo". I guess the song sounds like them both, but I would think that the line would boil down to "he dont know...hes too stoned to know". Just to make the end follow the beginning.

    any thoughts?

    I've never heard the song, but "he's too stoned Nintendo" doesn't seem to make much sense.

    Keep in mind the general awfulness of the song. I think "he's too stoned... Nintendo" is right. If my memory serves me correctly, the video was a "heavy metal parking lot" ripoff, and they were capitalizing on the retro-80s wave that was cresting when that song came out.

    Side note: tried to buy some NES games the other day, and the clerk looked at me like I was asking for a skate key and some jacks.

    I went thru a NES phase a few years ago, $25 for the system and $.25 per game at local pawn shops. Lot of fun for a week or two before it gets old again. Eric
