For today’s Dumbass of the Day, we focused on an ad placed by the Def Leppard tribute band Pyromania. The band was looking for a new drummer, preferably someone with a flame retardant drum set and, more importantly, one arm. Now we all know that Rick Allen, the real Def Leppard’s drummer, lost an arm in a car accident, so a lot of people have been giving this ad a bad rap. We decided to call the guy on the ad, and the phone was answered by “Jeff Leppard”. He went on in his best rock star impersonation for a while before admitting that someone had put his number on this ad on as a joke and he’s been getting tons of calls about it ever since. Pyromania posted a blog on their website acting extremely offended. We decided that for being way too sensitive, they deserve to be Jeff and Jeremy’s DUMBASS OF THE DAY!
I mean come on, how can you take these guys so seriously?
