  1. "I interrupted a Kid Rock and Joe C' concert in Florida during spring break."
  2. "Kid Rock dated Pamela Anderson."
  3. "Pamela Anderson starred in Baywatch with David Hasselhoff..."
  4. "...who starred in Knightrider with K.I.T.T."
  5. "K.I.T.T. is a crime-fighting vehicle not unlike The Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo."
  6. "Scooby-Doo jumped the shark with the addition of child star Scrappy-Doo!"
