    Sometimes the internet is good. Yesterday James Corden, Mark Hoppus, and Tom DeLonge all weighed in on the proper way to say “Blink-182.”

    Don’t start this. I admit we are wrong on this. America calls them Blink One eighty two. Which is also wrong. They technically should be called Blink one hundred and eighty two. Don’t take some moral high ground here.

    Thank you James. Some say one eighty two. Some say one eight two. But in all of this, I feel like we’ve lost sight of the fact that the B in blink-182 should be lower-case.

    It’s actually— Blink eighteen-two. People have all gotten this wrong for years. Sometimes this can happen with very complex, thoughtful and elevated art.

    This was hilarious to watch unfold yesterday. Tom's response is gold.

    Too bad his "investment" ideas aren't.

    This video of Tom is hilarious if you haven't seen it:

    It's nice to see that - despite what we think of his recent endeavours - deep inside Tom still has a wicked sense of humour. His videoed reaction to All the Small Things being played in a baseball (I think?) game was also golden.

    Is Tom trolling or is serious?

    I know I hear one eight two a lot
    But any fan who’s seen an interview or heard the live record will have heard them say “hi were blink one eighty two “
