Mike Love Fires the Beach Boys + Haiku

Posted by on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 at 1:09 PM

According to this story, Beach Boys member Mike Love has fired three other members of the Beach Boys (including the most important Beach Boy, Brian Wilson) mid-way through a UK tour. Apparently he didn't even do it to their faces, but through a public statement, which announced that original replacement Beach Boy Bruce Johnston would be again replacing the original Beach Boys.

Wouldnt it be nice if there were meatballs?
  • "Wouldn't it be nice if there were meatballs?"

There are so many things that can be said about the Beach Boys and how shitty people can be, but I'm just going to leave you with this haiku:

songs 'bout cars and girls
but you never get along
when will you all die?

Feel free to write your own in the comments. The winning haiku writer will be eligible to catch a wave and sit on top of the world.

were actually a BIG fart.
it stinks really bad.

Yeah, I'm no good at counting either. I've got it now:

Brian Wilson gone
What to do, Mike Love? What now?
"Get me John Stamos"

Anyone who has followed the Beach Boy's WAY too long history knows...well we're not shocked this happened. Frankly, I'm a little shocked it took this long. I mean he's sued most of the band before on several occasions.

TM clears the mind
it empties out completely
assuages the douche

Fuck it, I hate haiku even more than I hate Mike Love. As a friend of mine says, "The thing that made the Beach Boys great was the white hot collision of art & commerce. If Mike hadn't been in the band they wouldn't have even got the chance to make "All Summer Long", never mind "Pet Sounds"." He's still a maxipad douchenozzle, though.

If Brian has all his ducks in row, and I honestly have no idea if his ducks are at attention or quaking about hysterically with swastikas carved into their duck foreheads, he could make a nice living doing small tours every few years. Seems like he'd be happier doing that than dragging Good Vibrations across the globe.

Seems people named Love
Are rarely demonstrative
Of said attribute

You'd be pumping gas today
Without Brian. Jerk.

The autumn rain falls
Mingles with tears on boomers.
The young snark again.
