Once Upon a flick of the Bic

Yelling "Freebird!" has been a rock cliché for years, guaranteed to elicit laughs from drunks and scorn from music fans who have long since tired of the joke. And it has spread beyond music, prompting the Chicago White Sox organist to add the song to her repertoire and inspiring a greeting card in which a drunk holding a lighter hollers "Freebird!" at wedding musicians.

Bands mostly just ignore the taunt. But one common retort is: "I've got your 'free bird' right here." That's accompanied by a middle finger. [WSJ]

Any good drunk worth a shit would respond with...."Shomebody bether call Peta bread or whatever the fuck those animals fuckers are called, cuzzz that "freebird" *burp* smells like your assth....! Wooooooooooohooooooooooo!"
