Default Mentos

Since I didn't know the foos even existed around the first CD era (I was practically a kid, and no one around me listened to this kind of stuff) I have no way to know except asking you -
Did people really throw showers of Mentos at the foos or am I just talking bullshit?

Whether if it happened or not, it would have been funny as hell

Throwing mentos was funny back in 95 or 96. Now it's not funny and dangerous. Eat them, don't throw them.

I'm pretty sure Dave got beaned in the face at Winnepeg ((Yeah I was there, hell yes!)) durring this is a call, not even durring big me!! Which provoked him to say that he wanted to end the throwing of the mentos and then tried to light one on fire ((after asking for a lighter. He got about 20 btw and he was happy cause he got 20 free lighters man)) and that if anyone threw another one at him, he would walk off stage.
Oh man. It was awesome.

I was at that concert.

I wonder if Dave really did buy the Mentos off of people.

I bought a hell load of Mentos on holiday in France... and then I saw the Foos live in Paris that same day! I had the urge to throw them somewhere near the stage but soon thought better of it, anyway, I wasn't really close enough, lol. But I was popping Mentos in my mouth just like on the Big Me video for the whole time I was there in Paris... quite sad, I know, but I was easily amused

I agree with Jill, it's actually dangerous to throw things at people, no matter how big (or small) they are. And why would it be funny to chuck things at the Foos? It's almost as if you were booing them and wanted them off the stage.

Yes, yes it is true.
I saw them in Melbourne a few weeks ago.
Meanwhile, I have a nice little bruise coming up on my arm...
How about a petition to ban Mentos forever?!

Don't eat them, throw 'em instead! (Just not at Dave 'kay?)
