Hmm, funny for three reasons…

I chuckled at three points while reading this article, can you guess where? I’ll point them out at the end. If you can add additional chuckle points, please do so.

Rocker Alice Cooper opens Christian center

PHOENIX, August 1 (UPI) — Rocker Alice Cooper, notorious for on-stage beheadings and songs about dead babies, is opening a Christian youth center in Phoenix.

Cooper, 58, is establishing a $3 million facility with Grand Canyon University that will have a school of rock and roll, a concert hall and sports activities — all be with a Christian thrust, the Arizona Republic reported Tuesday.

Cooper, the born-again son of a Christian minister and grandson of an evangelist, said the project is still in the design stage and Cooper said he’s looking to add corporate sponsors to help its funding with an eye toward starting construction next year.

The singer of “Dead Babies,” “No More Mr. Nice Guy” and “Welcome to My Nightmare” said the club called The Rock will offer a variety of wholesome activities free of charge to youth ages 12-18.

” notorious for on-stage beheadings and songs about dead babies”

  • This will probably make it on to SoL, with a wildly self-righteous editorial by Ingrid.

“Christian thrust”

  • hehe, he said thrust. seriously tho, good band name.

“club called The Rock will offer a variety of wholesome activities free of charge to youth ages 12-18”

  • Finally, someone is copying Evergreen. At least Alice Cooper admits from the beginning that The Rock will draw in all the 12-18yr olds right off the bat.
