    You’re not a real American if you don’t love Hulk Hogan’s ring entrance song.

    You ever hear of Charlie Brown? He's friends with Linus, Linus has an obsession with his blanket and a crabby big sister called Lucy and Charlie has a white beagle called Snoopy.

    I wholeheartedly agree, I think it should replace the Star Spangled Banner as the national anthem.

    i may have to stop making jokes, if you dont understand the referances

    snoop dog, the well known rapper is according to some sources named after snoopy the dog, though others claim its a religious reference

    either way snoop dog is quite close to the snoopy the dog, charlie is a common name cocaine, im not sure why other than they both start with c

    hence my remarks that snoop dog has the white beagle and charli has white powder

    I see, that makes sense.

    Anyway, in terms of Snoop Dog being named after Snoopy maybe he was. And I suppose Charli XCX was named after the character Charlie Brown who was created by Charles Schulz. At least she wasn't named after Lucy, I hated Lucy.

    I SUSPECT NOT, her name is Charlotte Emma , that sounds like a Bronte reference to me, the Bronte's were a family of authors, a fact i suspect may have passed you by, naming people after cartoon characters seems to be a very american thing, naming them after carton characters of the wrong gender even less likely

    Snoop’s mother was on one of the behind the music shows on MTV. She said as a kid he was always snooping around. The nickname was taken from the dog and his snooping. They called him Snoopy/Snoop since he was a little kid.

    If my memory serves me correctly.

    Well the beagle Snoopy from the comic strip would do stuff that no ordinary beagle would do and in fact, much of what he did most people wouldn't do. I suppose that would suit Snoop the rap star since he did stuff that most ordinary people wouldn't do, he became a big star. And he does make good music.

    naming cities after people and particularly naming people after cities is also a very american thing to do

    her parents are RICH, her fathers Scottish her mothers Asian, no i really doubt she was named after some tin pot city in Tennessee,

    Charlie XCX is half asian? Never noticed. But that's cool, so am I.

    Anyway, Charlotte is a city in North Carolina, quite the city I must say. No doubt she was named after that.

    Well obviously he isn't, after all I've never heard of a factual beagle fighting the Red Baron.

    And 50s music is good, some of it.

    I don't usually take the bait with you, but in this case, it's too easy to win this argument.

    Of course, Snoopy is a real beagle. Want proof? I offer the gold standard of Martial Talk proof: YouTube

    Indisputable.

    A thread involving old music and charlie brown? Admittedly a solid two decades earlier, but this has to be linked.
