This note is like one of those asinine beer commercials come to life

June 30th, 2010 · 61 comments

…and then it turns out Ang’s friend is like, Heidi Klum, and she’s with standing there with her big growling bodyguard, and the Misogyny Factory boys are all like, “Ruh-roh! If only we’d been drinking that shitty beer that makes us act all smooth!’” Or something.

Adds our submitter from East Lansing, Michigan: “I don’t know where Ang’s friend parked originally, but because there was rope attached to the car’s bumper, it looks like ‘The Factory’ moved it.”

Ang's friend, We aren't sure if you're hot so we will keep this as polite as possible. Despite your good intentions, your inability to park in a twenty car lot w/out blocking the only bottleneck in the diveway has left us no choice but to deem you a dumb bitch. Fuck off, The Factory P.S. You are lucky we didn't fuck up your car.

      Yikes…if not for her polished, runway walk (with her back to The Factory), she might have returned to a Fiero flambe.

    It seems they became increasingly sure that she was ugly as they composed the note, because the tone descends into open hostility, despite their initial restraint.

      Come to think of it, ain’t no rule says they never saw her. They might have gotten a good look, and still just not be sure whether she’s hot. It can be tougher to assess hotness than parking aptitude.

    Am I the only one who thinks it says “The Fadors?” If so, one might assume that Ang’s friend is not only hot, but stupid, so they signed it hoping she would drop by to prove it.

      I can only assume it’s the name of their stupid garage band, and that, as with “deem,” they weren’t sure about the spelling so they made the letters ambiguous.

    What I find interesting is that despite discussing “hawtness” as a prerequisite for the rage note being calm, that’s totally chick-style handwriting, with its bubble dots for the i’s and curly t’s. It just needs a <3 in there somewhere to make it formal.

    Makes one wonder what exactly we have barged into here!

    If these geniuses knew whose car it was, perhaps the time they spent penning their hostile note would have been better utilized by entering The Factory, finding her, and then politely asking her to re-park her car.

    Mind you, it’s not an awful note. They score a few points for use of the word “deem” — even if it took a couple of attempts to reach the correct spelling. :)

    Further, their employ of the classical Roman valediction, “Fvck off,” imparts an air of sophistication and gravitas to an otherwise deceptively simple missive.

    I should start all my letters like that,

    “To whom it may concern,

    Know, foremost, that I am writing in ignorance of your comparative attractiveness and, as such, any combative element in my town should be estimated in a manner predicated upon the knowledge that my lack of sapience regarding whether you are smoking, tolerable or a sharnagger has mitigated my vitriol and ameliorated my tone. Second….”

    That said, I think the note is awesome. It’s not really passive-aggressive some much as explicatory; otherwise Ang’s friend might not realise why her car had been moved.

    So are they saying that, hot, attractive females often get preferential treatment? Someone should do a sociology study on that one.

    One of the girls that lived next to us in college had a Ford Aspire. We used to pick it up and drop it in places that she couldn’t drive away from. Lol, good times.

      I think she was perfectly attractive although I didn’t spend a single sober minute in four years of college so my perceptions of that time are mightily skewed. But yeah, if any car said “Try and Lift Me” more than the Ford Aspire, it was the Yugo, already a rare a beast by the time I was in college.

    Wow, I guess when one parks one should leave a picture of a “hot chick” on the dash so that we can get preferential treatment. Leaving the rope concerns me….were they planning a hanging, a kidapping or a roping contest?

      The director tried to patch things up by inviting Drella’s claque to attend the banquets, even going so far as to include Campbell’s tomato soup on the serving line. Things were OK until Mr. Lee made an announcement to the effect that the Factory crowd was welcome to “eat not just one plate but more, too!”
      Unfortunately, amidst the revelry and John Cale’s violin, this was heard as an encouragement to “Eat Mao II“, one of Andy’s best known works.

      Never overly fond of the West Coast film crowd, or Billy Joel, after that bash the Factory folks were all singing Say Goodbye to Hollywood

      Redeemed like:

      b) you only pay 50% for her entree, but you must buy her a pricey drink
      c) first ‘b’, then ‘a’
