    LOL @ “Maize”

    I hate Coldplay.

  2. VE Says:

    Ha! You had me at Golden Poppy…

    All better than the final choice, curiously enough. Who is in charge of name selection over there at Coldplay? Oh wait, the same guy who named his kid Apple.

  4. chowner Says:

    John: Touche.

    VE: I wonder why they didn’t stop there.

    Shawn: I was going to put something in there about Apple, alas, it didn’t make the cut.

    Lemon: I think that was a song by U2. 🙂

    Oh, and for some reason, I always thought Coldplay’s song was about urine. Don’t know why, just did. It could have been about Mountain Dew, though, for all I knew. I never did listen to the lyrics that closely.

    What about cream? ‘And it was all cree-eeeam’. The Verve >> Coldplay! 😀
