"Wot is yous banging on about?"

After I got off of work on Saturday I went home and got to sleep around 1am, I got up at 4am and drove for 4.5 hours to Springfield, MO. I was in Springfield until about 8pm and got home around 12:30am. I woke up from my coma about 45 minutes ago so you'll have to forgive me for not responding to your comments yesterday. I know that some of you don't need other people to carry on a conversation (Jiggs, I'm looking at you) but the rest of you do your best work when someone interacts with you. In the spirit of interaction and in the spirit of not wanting to do a real post I will respond to the comments I received yesterday on the main page, as seems to be the dernier cri.

I have edited the horrible spelling and grammar errors so that vomiting on one's computer does not occur when one is faced with their myraid grammatical shortcomings.

"Pantaloons": that is my new name for you.
Lemon Lyman does not waste time learning peoples names.

what would jesus do?

I didnt know you were a fruit, wearing pantaloons, going around talking about your dollops of whatever.

I read your post, but all I got out of it was, "I'm a big fruit with dollops in my pantaloons."


Lemon, you're like a cross between Lou Reed and one of those retarded Apostles, except less witty and charming.


Knitty Kitty said...

I like cream cheese too.
This is the first time in a while that I have shown up at a post of yours and there isn't a gazillion comments yet.
wohoo!


Perhaps if you weren't keeping such odd hours you would be more suitably equipped to be an elite commenter. You never seemed to have a problem when your RSS Feed had me on speed dial.


Anthony said...

If they are the nicest people, they are also the nicest emo's by default.

I have Dill Pickle chips, I broke into my house because I forgot my keys, I stole two matching glasses from the pub, I'm super tired and I have the world's best hat.


If that were true then we would also have to say that they are the nicest postal workers, the nicest fruit vendors and the nicest congressmen. Your hat is dumb.


Nick said...

It's 4am and I have to drive for 5 hours.

I wish I was dead.


We survived. We are better men for it.



Loz said...

This was such a hugely entertaining story.

My blog is back, by the way.


Loz, it fills me with joy that your blog has risen from the ashes like an HTML based Phoenix. I wish that the CoC was as entertaining in real life as I have presented them here.


Knitty Kitty said...

You have the coolest hat, Anthony. The coolest hat ever.

Loz, I'm super excited to see the blog!!


The hat is not cool.


Aaron said...

Cold cock the Coalition of Crazy and call the cops to cuff 'em and carry 'em away casually.

Hate on THAT.


You, sir, are an evil, evil man. I shall see you in hell.


Flounder said...

OK, at the risk of sounding stupid, I'll ask...

What is an emo kid?


By now, you should know the answer to this question.


Sounds Of Silence said...

Let's just say they own a lot of razorblades.


I like to say "banana hammock"


Anthony said...

Yeah, and they do a lot of crying.


Your face does a lot of crying. Because it's so ugly.


WhiteBoyBob said...

Yeah, what Flounder said. Emo, WTF?

Also, I command you to go and listen to Cocaine Blues by Johnny Cash right now..... and think of Captain Beefheart.


I shall do it post haste. I always think of Captain Beefheart.


Sysm said...

Emo kids who have sex and experiement with drugs & alcohol are okay. It's the straight-edge ones that I usually want to flay. Bright Eyes? Bleechh. Dashboard Confessional? The stomach acid just shot up so fast it came out of my nose. It burns, it burns.


The authorities frown on flaying humans. Just a word of advise.


yournamehere said...

Straight-edge kids are little Nazis. However, their anti-leather stance has ensured that you can always get Chuck Taylors in artsy fartsy shops even when they aren't popular with the mainstream. So it's a push.


Push? I don't know what this means. I'm a complete retard who has lived under the stairs for the last 10 years. Can you plaese enlighten me as to the meaning of "push"? I feel so stupid.


yournamehere said...

Christ, I just read my comment and realize I've lived in Vegas way too long. "Push" is casino-speak for a tie.


Ohhhhhhh...


Brooke said...

Clearly I chose the wrong profession.


Crazy people are an added bonus. They're not in the compensation package.


Mike said...

If teen angst took form into a white pasty like substance, and you could mold it into a person, then teach that person to blog about how their parents don't understand them, all while listening to The Smiths, you would have Emo. Also, add some black decals.


And mesh clothing.


nikki said...

I buckled and hit up our old friend The Urban Dictionary for a general consensus. I'm not sure what I found could be classified as general or a consensus - but it was definitely the funniest shit I've read all weekend (save the eulogy from Nick yesterday).

[Yes, this is where I'd add the link if I knew how to do so. And I fucking hate when people say that]

BTW, don't thwart alliteration - it's been good to you and you oughtta think about making pie for it more often.


Allow me. Emo, as defined by The Urban Dictionary. My favorite definition was "Like a Goth, only much less dark and much more Harry Potter."

Alliteration deserves no pie.



Übermilf said...

I don't think Nick is a fruit, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were dollops in his pantaloons.


I can neither confirm nor deny this.


Anthony said...

Nick smells.


Your face smells.


jiggs said...

rv gary and the kind are the two guys in my inner dialogue.


Somehow, I am not surprised.


miss kendra said...

I reject your judgement of "emo" kids, and spread it thin enough to cover all kids.

Emo is a state of mind, not a trend. Those kids are just posers, like mall goths and Ashlee Simpson in a Metallica t-shirt.


I can get behind you on this.



Observations:

What did proper nouns ever do to you people?

A grouping of three peiods (or asterisks) in a sentence is called an ellipsis. It represents the omission of a word or phrase necessary for a complete syntactical construction but not necessary for understanding.

I don't need people to interact with because rv gary and the king are already holding a dialogue in my mind.

Interacting with other people would distract me from what they are saying.

poojuice

Nick said...

Knowing other people waters down the experience, eh?

jiggs said...

Yes interacting with people distracts me from the primary object of my affection (me).

Wait a second. Nick you tricked me into interacting with you, you douche! That's 15 seconds in which I wasn't able to concentrate on myself!

Knitty Kitty said...

I blame the whole 18 hour time difference "keeping odd hours" my ass...

I only pulled this one up because I woke up at 6:45 am...

You loved it when my RSS feeder was on and you know it.

Nick said...

In your face!

miss kendra said...

i bet you're really rivers cuomo.

why haven't i ever seen you two together???

emo! emo! emo!

Anthony said...

Nick, you don't seem to understand. If they are emos, and they are the nicest people, they are also the nicest emos. They can't be emos and the nicest people but not the nicest emos.

And you love this hat. You're actually jealous of it. Not of me cause I have one, but of the hat because it is so much cooler and hotter than you and it has more friends.

Mike said...

I know you are awake. I know you are near a computer. Answer your phone! Have you been hit on the head? Have you been kidnapped? Are you being sodomized by the kidnapers? If so, don't let them see you cry. Just bite down and grit through it. You can do it. Then when you are done, wipe up, and ask if you can answer your phone.

Brookelina said...

Great post.

Sound Of Silence said...

"Knowing other people waters down the experience, eh?"

-Nice Church quote. I love that gay robot.

Loz said...

don't befuddle nick with logic problems anthony. if there were nicer emos than these kids, it would stand to reason that the nicer emos would then be the nicest people. maybe we need something tangible with which to explain this - a bar graph perhaps?

LMK: this time difference between you and i is so confusing, and it's killing me! but come the end of march, i'll move my clocks back one hour and we'll be fine.

Anthony said...

Loz, maybe a pie chart labled "People" with a segment called "Emo kids" and a point within that segment labled "Nicest People" will help him understand.

Nick said...

Kitty - My "in your face" was directed at Mr. Casey.

Kendra - I don't know who Rivers Cuomo is.

Anthony - Nuts to you. I hate when accessories are more popular than me.

Mike - I was none of thowe things. I had to run into The TA to run some errands for my pop. Also, my phone never rang. You should have went to the Sneak it was off the chain.

Brooke - You realize that when I said "as seems to be the dernier cri." I was talking about you.

Sounds - Me too.

Loz - YES! Befuddle me not!

Nick said...

They are nice and they are emo, they are the nicest people I have ever met. Not all people are emo and not all emos are people, therefore just because they are the nicest people does not directly make them the nicest emos.

Anthony said...

But you did say "they are perhaps the nicest people I have ever met. Not the nicest emos, but the nicest people."

And yes, all emos are people.

Example.

You have the ugliest face in America and because Kansas is part of America you also have the ugliest face in Kansas. You don't have the ugliest face in any other state, because you aren't in any other state, however if you went to Oklahoma or another state, then you would have the ugliest face there and also in all of America.

miss kendra said...

you can deny it all you want, but until i see you guys together, i know you're him.

the one with the guitar.

Nick said...

Anthony - Ouch.

Kendra - Do I seem Ivy League educated to you?

Brookelina said...

You realize that's why I said it was a great post.

Calzone said...

Anthonys new photo is fucking hot, Nick, should we foam up his asshole?

Übermilf said...

Anthony is MY boy toy.

You have to ask before you use him. There's a sign up sheet.

Knitty Kitty said...

sign up sheet eh?

got a pen?

dirty martini said...

What the fark were you doing in Springfield. Springfield is the home of the Pentecostal movement in America. Did you visit one of their fine churches or universities? You know, get you some Jesus?

Anthony said...

I'm in demand.

Nick can't be Rivers Cuomo because I respect Rivers.

Anthony said...

Too much?

Nick said...

Zone - Mos def.

Ubes - I would so love to watch you and Calzone go at it. Fight, I mean.

LMK - You already have a Canadian boy, stay away from mine. I mean Ubie's.

DM - I heard that Pentacostal chicks were easy.

Anthony - Bazang!

Anthony - Clearly you didn't think so otherwise you would have deleted it.

Anthony said...

I knew you loved me.

Nick said...

I don't love how much you smell.

Loz said...

Don't hurl insults at each other today - it's Valentine's Day. Buy each other expensive useless crap and edible undies.

Sound Of Silence said...

I dont think its a good for either of them to get eachother eatible undies. That could make for a very unsexy outcome. Dammit, now I'm going to have nightmares.

Sound Of Silence said...

*edible

yes, my spelling is atrocious. deal with it.

Knitty Kitty said...

there is nothing wrong with wanting more then one canadian boy...

The G Manifesto said...

urban dictionary does help.
