    Good morning, dear. Sex with you was great last night.

    I didn’t get home until two and I went right to sleep.

    Imagine my surprise when I noticed I was screwing your best friend in your stead.

    “A” for adultery.

      Not sure much about Sally Field. A quick google search shows that she did playboy in the 80′s.

    “I” for inconceivable that A has made it to adulthood.

    There are so many illogical explanations on how this occurred. My only hope is that A friended his parents and they feel some sense of shame for breeding.

    We probably should congratulate A for being able to log into FB by 10:04 am the next day.

    I think A must have been my former assistant who quit to become a professional ballroom dancer and is rumored to teach pole dancing. She wasn’t big on details.

    So, he thought he saw a show of a band of which this person is a member but it was actually another band and he wasn’t aware of it? Or he was aware of it? I have no idea what is going on here or why it’s interesting other than maybe he knew he didn’t see the band but tried to say so anyways? Is that it?

      2) Patrick tells “A” the gig isn’t til next Thursday.
      3) “A” waits for venue office to open, gets name of band he *didn’t* see last night + mssgs Patrick
      4) Patrick assigns final grade

      I’m not a troll. I am a regular reader of this site, and I know about the generous use of the term. This post, however, is just a funny exchange between friends and does not even fit in the guidelines you’ve set for yourselves. This should be posted on lamebook.com.

      Also, 40+ comments means very little when it’s the same bunch of people carrying on hundreds of conversations having nothing to do with the original post.

      If you think the sequence in #13.1 makes sense,
      then I suppose it slips in under the radar by virtue (?) of the final ” ‘A’ for effort”, which is clearly not meant to be taken literally/positively.

      So…maybe it was just a slow news day…

      It was a slow day,
      And the sun was beating
      On the soldiers by the side of the road,
      There was a bright light,
      A shattering of shop windows
      The bomb in the baby carriage
      Was wired to the radio…

      Hey, can’t have a 23-car pile up on the Interstate every day, right ?

    Here’s a funny story. Actually, not so much funny as it is long. Years back I told the guy I had recently dumped that I would go see his band’s big gig. The ex was kinda a creep, and before the break up he kept accusing me of flirting with this other guy. The night of the show came around and I showed up at the wrong club. Guess who’s band was playing? The other guy’s. 10 years later and he and I are still together.
    I’m sorry, you may return to something humorous now.

    I think the point is that he didn’t go to any gig, but told his ‘friend’ that he did.

    His friend gave him an ‘A’ for effort, when he really meant ‘A’ for a**hole for lying about going to my gig!

    Seems a little PA to me.

    Okay, for those of you who don’t get it:

    A guy didn’t go to his friend’s performance but lied and said he was there but in the back.

    The friend then tells him that there WAS no gig. Therefore, he didn’t need to lie and say he was there.

    Instead of copping out, the original poster then claims he was, in fact, at a gig, and that the band’s name and location were identical to his friend’s gigs.

    The friend gives this lie an A for effort, meaning “nice try,” or “close but no cigar.”

      “Instead of copping out, the original poster then claims he was, in fact, at a gig, and that the band’s name and location were identical to his friend’s gigs.”

      “…a band named actiondale IN YOUR STEAD…”

      He’s saying he went to the right venue, but the band was wrong. Again, another lie on A’s part however. Double fail FTL. Good game, A. Good game.
