I live in Colorado, I do an improvised music TV show on Denver Open Media every tuesday night, and I am a big fan of Ben Folds. I would recognize him anywhere, and for what its worth, I'm positive that Merton is Ben Folds, and that this is all a joke he's playing on the media... of course that's not fit for the article, but if we want to be accurate, we should scrutinize naive media reporting. Or we can just play along. I dont think he even meant to hide the fact that he's Merton at first, he just thought it would be more interesting to be a random guy. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:54, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
Merton -- or "Meruton" is a spell in Final Fantasy 6. in the original release, the spell "Meruton" was improperly translated into "Merton" instead of "Meltdown." Do these things have anuything in common with the fellow by this same name? Because yeah, weird. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:58, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
