Mike Judge said Beavis & Butt-Head was not set in any particular place, but the water tower you'd see in the background as the boys walked along was based on those of Plano, Texas.

What exactly were they talking about with that?? Is it supposed to make sense, or was it just some waffling?

They are talking about the bridge of the song..... A different section in a different key usually. It's a James brown reference really.

that had crossed my mind, but I thought that British slang, idiom, etc., could have been a factor too.

Hadn't ever imagined that James Brown might factor in, though!

Bridge over a little creek on a warmish early winter day, water just starting to ice up so I am getting all the rides in that I can.
