WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BRAIDING LANYARDS?:

White Stripes rock T.O. kids' camp (Karen Pinchin, 7/06/07, Canadian press)

Alt-rock duo the White Stripes thrilled dozens of children at a Toronto day camp Thursday afternoon with an impromptu gig that had the youngsters clapping their hands and wriggling in time to the music.

More than 65 children between the ages of five and 12 sat in a semi-circle on the floor to catch a five-song set by bandmates Jack White and Meg White. About 80 adults were allowed in the room, including some fans who talked their way through the door.

"This is my fifth year here and something like this has never happened before," said 11-year-old Camille, waving his hands for emphasis.

"When I saw them perform I was like, 'Wow, I really need to download these songs when I get home."'

Lanyards? Ha! So that's what they were supposed to be. I never knew. Mine were mutated DNA.
