It started one Friday afternoon:
Jeffé sent this link via email.
FRANKIE NACHO: SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BOBBY: Surely you jest. The preview looks mediocre, at best.
JEFFé: Everybody panic. [Bobby's real name] is being condescending.
BOBBY: I just think everyone needs to maintain perspective. Contrary to Jeffé and Frank's assumptions, just because Tim Burton is involved with a project doesn't guarantee quality. QED
(BLOGORELLI wonders: what is QED?)
P NATTY: But wait, don't forget Johnny Depp is in it. And he is soooooo dreamy. I'm with Mr. Everything-Sucks-And-I-Will-Tell-You-Why.
BOBBY: Am I Mr. Everything-Sucks-And-I-Will-Tell-You-Why? Are you agreeing with me or not, Patty?
JEFFé: Burton's Previous Films w/ Stop Motion = A. Bobby's Previous Email = D+
BLOGORELLI: Bobby, have you been listening to that freaky NPR for the last 5.5 hours? Don't lie. Step away from the speaker...awaaaay. And, Sirs "That's Crap" 1 & 2: Let's just wait for the evidence. Then we can all debate the movie afterwards and maybe, just maybe, one of you can make me cry.
[BLOGORELLI NOTE: bobby and p natty have both made me cry during debates, once about my deceased cat Sam and another time about the death penalty. There was alcohol involve in both episodes)
Besides, i can only watch the preview with the stupid sound turned off in the office, so i abstain judgement for now)
BOBBY: No. And although I have been listening to NPR for the last 5-1/2 hours, it is in no way freaky. Currently, there is a discussion on Talk of the Nation's Science Friday about whether Science precludes Religion. All the guests are being very childish about it.
JEFFé: Blogorelli abstains, Frankie is being logical, and the Bosom Buddies agree. This is eerie...
FRANKIE NACHO: I just thought it was sort of funny that Bobby didn't realize he was "Mr. Everything-Sucks-And-I-Will-Tell-You-Why".
CHO: maybe you should call in and 'take them all down'. That seems right up your alley! Are you ready to graduate to one of the actual crazies who calls into the radio shows?
BOBBY: I have never called in, and I feel no compunction now to do so. I did desire to call yesterday when, during coverage of the inauguration, someone called in and started talking about how "we've tried to show those selfish liberals what good moral values are, but if they won't work with us, then we won't work with them." Thankfully I had too much work.
(BLOGORELLI thinks: We are definitely all thankful for that)
JEFFé: Bobby calls often and don't let him tell you different. He confided in me some time ago.
BLOGORELLI: Bobby, what are we going to do with you? NEVER EVEN SLIGHTLY ADMIT THAT YOU *EVER EVER EVER* THOUGHT ABOUT CALLING IN TO TALK RADIO! never. nevah. geesh. you are dead to me.
BOBBY: Whatever, Miss My-New-Favorite-Food-is-Cow-Brain-and-Lard-Cakes. You are what you eat. Also, NPR is not talk radio. So get bent, Ohio-lover.
PATTY: Holy shit I am laughing out loud, falling out of my chair!! "Miss My-New-Favorite-Food-is-Cow-Brain-and-Lard-Cakes." ?!?!? "you are what you eat"?!?!? Forget "Machine Gun" now it's just the endearing Lard Cakes!
BLOGORELLI: NOoooooooo! or perhaps i should just go with this and get a pig tattooed on my upper arm? hmm
CHO: it might look as good as P Natty's new tatoo...
(in reference to a henna tattoo P Natty got on vacation in the Dominican Republic, of a panther, on his upper pec...which he had an allergic reaction to and, as a result, turned into a rash shaped like a panther on his upper pec)
BLOGORELLI: Well, as long as no one "gets bent" over it
