    WELL WELL,something I finally excelled at.The hall mark of a wasted life is when you know all those answers.Bryan shame on you!How could you miss 13?Had Coloman given the clue "BYE BYE MISS AMERICAN PIE" everyone would have gotten it.Unfortuantely it was McCleans only hit.Number 11s answer I will comment on,specifically the part that BRAs were also burned.There might have been some but I don't remember to many going up in flames over the war, but plenty went up in smoke for the "WOMENS LIBERATION" movement :p .I also don't recall to many male protests when they were burned and as far as I was concerned garter belts,girdles etc and all those other "obstacles" to progress could have been added to the flames as well. :rolleyes: :D Also as far as I can recollect no bras were burned while occupied.
