Flaming bingo


CFN

Gazette staff
As if there wasn’t enough to see and do at a Flaming Lips show, a St. Louis newsweekly has created Flaming Lips bingo cards. While it’s unlikely Wayne Coyne will be calling out B-9 or A-17 at shows, players can daub their cards for spotting things like a Confetti Cannon, a Creepy Santa, Fake Blood and Lady Parts, illustrated on one of six different cards, each with 25 squares.

Transportation Security Administration officials had to close the checkpoint for nearly an hour before determining the explosive, which Coyne said he had been given at a party in Arkansas, did not pose a threat. As far as we know, Wayne hasn’t yet tried to bring these on board the friendly skies:

We laughed, we cried, it was better than 'Cats'!

Well, Chicken-Fried News hasn’t actually seen the musical Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. But even before its world premiere in La Jolla, Calif., last month, we knew it would be much better than Cats. And the critics agree!

Hand job

Word to the wise if you plan on traveling to Australia anytime soon with a bag full of novelties: Keep your eyes on your giant stage props. The Flaming Lips learned that the hard way last week when someone swiped the supersized laser hands favored by front man Wayne Coyne.
