Ladymoonshinedown? I got this one.

You think Brian and Roger wanted to tour with Paul Rodgers? Fuck no! Here is how Paul Rodgers' tyrannical and insane behavior led to this tour.

On February 14th, 2004, Paul stated his thoughts on a new tour with him as the frontman while they were opening their valentines from all the Queen fans. Brian didnt like this idea and said, "Paul, youre a great singer; but I think you'd be better off doing Elvis."

Now, Paul was eager to press the issue and said, "what if we wouldnt call it Queen. We could call it Queen+Paul Rodgers! Then all of those fanatic fans who think they can talk to Freddie will realize that Im not replacing him!"

Then, Roger said, "Paul, you know we have some dumbasses in our fan base. You never know what they will try to pull."

Paul was now irate at their refusal. He darted towards Brian and snatched the valentine from his hand.

"Wha, What are you doing?" Brian stuttered.

"If you dont let me tour with you," Paul shrieked, "I will tear every one of those valentines in two!"

Now, this is where John took his cue to leave. He took his box of valentines and darted away from Paul. He went to Australia where, to this day, he sits in a dark corner, reading each card over and over and muttering, "not my valentines, no rip my valentines."

Back to the moment- Brian began trying to reason with the irate Paul Rodgers. Paul then, remembered what Brian had confessed to him years ago. Brian was a diehard Hello Kitty fan. Paul, seeing the advantage said, "and those Hello Kitty ones, I shall rip those into 4!"

Roger then tried to call Paul out on his bluff, "You cant tear up ALL of our valentines; you will get nasty papercuts."

Paul, in his ulitmate resourcefulness, quickly brandished a pair of yellow gardening gloves with flowers stitched into them and retorted, "Oh yes, I can."

Left with no choice, Brian and Roger were forced to submit, or else Hello Kitty would kick the bucket.

And THAT is how the tour got started.

Cheers

Geez, no wonder Brian gets touchy whenever I ask him about Hello Kitty, one of my most-beloved anime shows of all time :P

Oh, and I like how you said 'cheers', almost as if you've been saying that for a long time. ;)

OK, Ladymoonshinedown, what next? How about a report on how 39 explains Brian's infatuation with Hello Kitty?

Nah.
Brian may have an acute infatuation with Hello Kitty, but his real problem; his addiction, more or less, is with doilies. We could discuss that, if you want. ;)

Ok, what kind of dollies does Brian love? Does he go for GI-Joe's? Maybe hes in touch with the effeminate Barbies? Or wait, could Brian be into those little sailor dolls?

The juxtaposition of a certain two significant words in this sentence entertained me. That's all I have to say.
