    Forgive me if this is already common knowledge, but it's a new one for me. I just started reading Stephen King "Desperation." Right there on page 11, a character has just been pulled over by a creepy cop and these are the thoughts going through his head:

    You're being stupid, you know that, don't you?he asked himself. It's speeding, that's all, simple speeding. The posted limit is a joke and everyone knows it's a joke, but this guy's undoubtedly got a certain quota to meet. And when it comes to speeding tickets, out-of-staters are always best. You know that. So...what's that old Van Halen album title? Eat Em and Smile?

    Maybe King was trying to show that the character was a fucking bonehead?

    Great book!!!

    I think the CHARACTER got it wrong, not Stephen King. Like he's a fan but not a big fan...get it!?!

    King does his homework.

    Ah! Ok, I can live with that. I don't think I could have handled catching Stephen King making a mistake.

    What's the other old quote? When I think of Dave, I think of Van Halen. When I think of Van Halen, I think of Dave? Maybe that's why Stephen thought Eat Em was Van Halen?

    I believe Stephen King checks Van Halen in other novels, "Firestarter" seems to come to mind as well as one other. He's a real rock fan...and he does know his facts.

    Eat Em and Smile couldn't hold 5150's jock.
    "It's now officially 5150 time!!!"
