This time of year should put one in the mood to revisit this unintentionally hilarious "classic".

Edit: Oops, looks like this movie was tagged a few pages back. Geeze, I've been in and out of here too long. Ah well, consider it a gimme.

ok at first glance you would not think that this tag and breturi7's had any thing in common.


But you'd be wrong on two accounts.

Well three, you need the same thing to get this one.

Mix equal parts transvestism with a mad scientist, a stalking devil, a psychiatrist, and irrelevant footage of stampeding bison and what you get is Ed Wood's Glen or Glenda.

This creature has a bioluminescent lure growing out of its forehead that it uses to attract prey.

The first part of it's name is also the Secret Service codename for V.P. Dick Cheney...I can definitely see the resemblance.

There's lots of debate over how to spell the nonsensical word in the chorus, or what the official title of the original campfire song even is. All I know is it's featured in one of the most memorable commercials in ages. And to find the pic, you'll need the tag line at the end of the commercial.

Maybe in your mind,


The song has to be Kumbaya or Kum Ba Ya

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kumbaya

But after many searches the only ad I come up with is one for Bazooka Bubblegum.


So how about another hint.

First hint: wrong campfire song.

Second hint: the commercial features a slew of cameo appearances from TV personalities including Mike Rowe, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman (all singing a little off-key), as well as the mechanical singing of Stephen Hawking.

If you can connect those names to, say, a single channel, you might just be on to something. And as I said before, the search phrase is the tagline at the end of the commercial, not the song's name...so you might have to YouTube it.

well I'm not sure this gruppo of campers is singing Boom De Ya Da

As they are full of conflict, contradiction, frustration, anger and the desire for human destruction.

Still they ride Vespas so they can't be all bad.

This one is sort of its own tag without help but you may need some. Imagine some woman nattering on about how, if she had a Vespa, she'd probably have a gorgeous Italian boyfriend and would, one can only suppose, take up other new hobbies as well.

Yeah, I think a clue might be helpful. I've searched for the obvious and a few not-so-obvious phrases and have found zilch...unless the tag is past page 10 or so.

OK, let's go back to the original clue, which has everything you need.
Quote:

I'll tell you the word "Vespa" needs to be in the search string. Once you have that, a number of the other terms in the clue will get you where you need to be. For example, look for a word you might not run across every day unless you're British.

This image is returned as the fourth image on the first page using only two words from the clue. It's also returned on the first page using the one mandatory word plus a three-word phrase from the clue.

There are several ways to get at this one. You may have made it more complicated than it needed to be if you loaded up too many - or the wrong - search terms. Sometimes less is more, when it comes to adding search terms to GIS. (I know I've certainly done that in the past!)

How 'bout a new chorus to that Police song, inspired by Nattering Natalie's blog. (http://natteringnatalie.blogspot.com/2005_11_01_archive.html)
"Messy in a bottle. Messy in a bottle."

Natalie's not the only one nattering on about something...(am I spelling that correctly?) Maybe I should have waited for my 750th tag for this one.

Close enough. The object is to find the exact same picture using Google Image Search as the original poster, (the pic you used of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge was a little different), but we'll let it slide this time.

As for your tag, that would be the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge.

Looking at this rather austere building from the outside, one would never assume that it houses one of the most famous works of Western art. And like that work of art, this building's architecture and interior deocration contain quite a few nods (or maybe potshots) at Jewish tradition, like the fact that it's the same Biblical dimensions as the Temple of Solomon.
