I know I shouldn't laugh..but that image of the pop sitting there looks so damn funny...no no damage reported.

To Quote from article:

The stick actually went into his eye. A Stagehand
had to pull it out.. As stated in the article " he cursed and sweared at
the audience for several minutes, and finished off by saying "to punish you
I'm gonna play you a Pixies song". Which they did...

Probably translate into it being Bush's fault.

Maybe I'm becoming an old fogey, but crap like that doesn't amuse me anymore. Audiences today are so rude that I rarely go to movies, much less concerts. At the risk of sounding like my grandmother, that could (quite literally) have put his eye out.

Thanks for the translation. Sounds like he's OK - at least I hope so.

If it went into his mouth he could have Lolligaged.

Funny how they were prepared with a retaliatory Pixies song, though. One wonders how many other times this has happened, that the press is keeping from us.

Oh great, now they will be seizing all lollipops when you go to a rock concert.

I'm sure that's not the first time something sticky landed in one of Bowie's eyes.

"Maybe I'm becoming an old fogey, but crap like that doesn't amuse me anymore."

I'm with you. Stuff like this has never amused me, since I was brought up to put myself in the other person's shoes before I did anything stupid. Would I want that done to me? And, how would I feel if it did happen to me. Sometimes I curse my parents for instilling a conscience in me. There's been plenty of times I would have loved to do malicious things, but I could never bring myself to do them.

Getting a lollipop in the eye can be much, much worse:

Warning: extreme cartoon violence.
