    I just find cat peeps weird. kinda like non puffers.

    but really my only friend. since we were kids in little league. tour crew. and still chill always had cats. had to live with em even. fuckin Merl.

  2. Gavinsdad Says:

    Betta fish ftw?

    Off to sample CO essential oil for the first time. My buddy was too lazy to help AW with this during Dicks but sent it east. Eagles v Seahawks and weed wars. Game on.

  3. albert walker Says:

    essential oils to break a fast

    damn. IRIE!

  4. Mike in Austin Says:

    I like them both. Whatever. I don’t go gaga over them either. They’re animals. That’s all.

    People acting like their pets are their kids though, kinda is weird to me. I mean, I really really like my dog, but it’s not by “furbaby” or anything.

  5. SillyWilly Says:

    dogs dominate me, too.

    didn’t grow up with pets, so they know they can push me around.

    come to think of it, the only dog that I can remember lately who didn’t destroy me was Miles.

    Miles just laid down on my feet and made sure I didn’t run out with some Scratch in my jacket.

  6. Mike in Austin Says:

    fast -> essential oils = MiA passing out.

  7. Mike in Austin Says:

    Wow, I thought my pun was kinda funny.


  8. angryjoggerz Says:

    Lol at furbaby. We have 3 cat and an iguana. All of them are a pain in the ass. Post-kid I think we would be happy to be animal free. Grew up with dogs, love them, but who has the time?

  9. SillyWilly Says:


    it was wonderfully played.

  10. albert walker Says:

    I love pussy puns MIA

    Don’t know if anyone has heard Mike Birbiglia on This American Life, or The Moth, or seen him in his one man show “Sleepwalk With Me”, but they are making it into a movie and it is debuting @ Sundance this year.

    Mike Birbiglia is a funny storyteller.


  12. angryjoggerz Says:

    oh damn, and i am pretty much a non-puffer. wow do i suck.

  13. Mike in Austin Says:

    who has the time?

    My wife. And the 12 year old neighbor girl I pay $5 a day who loves to play with my dog for 30 minutes and take him for walks.

    Her job doesn’t suck. Get paid better than minimum wage to play with my dog.

  14. angryjoggerz Says:

    Damn, Mike! Is she available to wait in line at the Greek?

  15. MrCompletely Says:

    that was a high-risk joke, nailed perfectly I thought.

    I hit a perfect “that’s what she said” in a large group meeting the other day and brought the house down. talk about something that can backfire…

  16. Mike in Austin Says:

    My wife? Probably.

  17. angryjoggerz Says:


  18. albert walker Says:

    you are a non puffer AJ maybe daily

    but if you were at a concert and someone passed your a fat spliff of OG

    you wouldn’t say no. No?

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    people need to free up the sex jokes

    they can be perfectly funny without being sexist

    like Mike’s joke, for example


    i rock the “that’s what he said” as an alternative sometimes.

    gives you the added advantage of novelty.

    it’s adds versatility to your humor arsenal.

  20. MrCompletely Says:

    Seahawks vs Eagles, what a crappy game

    both those teams are just depressing failboats of doom

    but the upside is, this means Seattle won’t take up one of the Sunday broadcast slots

  21. albert walker Says:

    my non puffer definition is more someone that says no to a passed spliff at a concert or on the way to a movie

    that kind of on puffer

  22. MrCompletely Says:

    sure but it’s situational Silly

    this was in response to a line something like

    “I’m really not in the mood and don’t have time, but I know we need to get this done, so let’s get it over with”

    much funnier with the female pronoun, I think

  23. albert walker Says:

    you can tell how close I am to seeing shows by me starting to drop in for such insightful important discussions

    laterz kids
    apply all proper essential oils daily
    MSG bitches

  24. SillyWilly Says:

    AJ won’t say no.

    He pops out of nowhere, just to your left, when it’s time to pass


    and then fades back into the night.

  25. SillyWilly Says:

    Oh yeah, Mr. C

    you gotta pick your spots, no doubt.

    just being aware of both can double your comedic value.

    and many women seem to love a perfectly placed “that’s what he said”
