 The other day on NPR I heard a music critic going on & on about this new
rock band that suddenly has become very popular. It seems that a music 
critic, while surfing the net, came across them, wrote about them & now the 
music world is going batty over them.

Honest to Gawd! They are nothing but a garage band making horrible noises. 
And this NPR critic was talking about them as if they were the Beatles 
reincarnated.  And he is doing this with a straight face as if he really 
believed it.

I guess he did.  '
