Technological Advancements Rendering Songs Anachronistic

Dear Barenaked Ladies,

They have pre-wrapped bacon now.

You were right all along.

Still no Dijon ketchup though.

Sincerely,

Barenaked Ladies singer arrested

FAYETTEVILLE, New York (AP) -- The singer and guitarist for the band Barenaked Ladies has been arrested on drug charges in upstate New York.

Police say Steven Page was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance on Friday in the Syracuse area.

Authorities say the arrest occurred at about 2 a.m. after police noticed a suspicious car with its driver's side door left open. They say they found Page and two women in a nearby apartment, along with cocaine and marijuana.

Barenaked Ladies' manager Terry McBride confirmed the charge to the Post-Standard of Syracuse but declined to comment further. The singer, released after paying $10,000 bail, is due in court Thursday.

Page helped form the band in 1988. The group, known for hits such as "One Week" and "Pinch Me" recently released their debut kids CD, "Snacktime."

Why must you be the bearer of bad tidings!

I thought you should hear it from me first, rather than some stranger.

Thanks man. Or ma'am. At least it wasn't a completely unknown stranger who occasionally comments on our stuff here giving me the bad news.

Like the time my parents hired a clown to tell me that my grandfather wasn't really on a farm running free with the other grandfathers.

Could be why I'm afraid of farms to this day...
