...I thought he said Pump.

He did say "Pump"... it was a reference to that Bob Dylan song, Subterranean Homesick Blues:

"The pump don't work 'cause the vandals took the handles"

Ah!  The Vandals are also a "punk" band that popularized ironic frat-boy punk that Green Day went on to perfect.  Cool -- a joke that's funny even to people with hearing loss!

Thank you.

Vandals today maybe, with Joe Escalante stealing the name and song writing credits and royalties from the real members of the band but the Peace Thru Vandalism EP is great!

Yeah okay, so winter in Minnesota sucks but at least I can laugh at the 1000's of obscure MST3k riffs about MN...

Now Californians get all the fun :(
