Musical error messages and fundraisers

Today my friend Mo emailed me this great downtime message he came up with. The lyrics are from "Epic" by Faith No More, which, much to my embarrassment, I didn't recognize. That proves that Mo is way cooler than I am, but I digress. Anyway, Mo also came up with some great ideas for OHSU fundraisers starring various 80s bands:
Bret Michaels, for the Oregon Poison Center
Billy Squier, for the Oregon Stroke Center

That inspired me to come up with a few more for OHSU and beyond:

  • Warrant for the Public Safety Dept.
  • Anthrax for Infectious Diseases (not sure of the exact dept. name)
  • Def Leppard and Glass Tiger for the Oregon Zoo (with a special guest appearance from Whitesnake to fund a new reptile house)
  • Firehouse for the Portland fire dept.
  • Great White for the Oregon Coast Aquarium
  • Faster Pussycat for the Oregon Humane Society
  • Guns ‘N Roses in a joint fundraiser for the NRA and the International Rose Test Gardens

And Mo countered with:

  • Quiet Riot for the Oregon Hearing Center
  • Ratt for the Primate Center

My response:

  • Ratt for Laboratory Medicine
  • Black ‘N Blue for a domestic violence shelter (yeah, I know - I'm tacky)
  • Kiss for some oral health dept in the School of Dentistry
  • And add LA Guns to the NRA one and Def Leppard to the Oregon Hearing Center one

Yeah, I know -- we shouldn't quit our day jobs. But c'mon... it's Friday. Everyone needs a little silliness on Friday.
