11. Government Cheese was a local band
you remember government cheese don't you?

back in the '80's the feds gave out all this old surplus food, mostly cheese, to old people. my grandma got some, and I ate a lot of it. wasn't bad, actually.
made some decent grilled cheese sandwiches.

30. XXX Girls (you had to be there)
Local Tampa band in the early eighties. All the geezers would show up looking for nekkid women......good for a larf when the band came onstage watching them head for the exits mumbling about the cover charge being a rip.

48. Har! When I moved to Houston I remember seeing quite a few cars
with "Titty Bingo" bumperstickers......didn't realize it was a band, just thought Texans had some "interesting" sex clubs. :dunce:

Used to love asking others just exactly how the game was played. :D
