Whoa! Didn't see this coming!

Jed said...

The ending is perfect. I wonder if Janet still likes the old lady? And who the bejeezus is Jason?

Mark Martin said...

Jed - Are you referring to your bio-twin Jason Alexander?

Jim - What is it about male nipples? They're always funny. Even when they're not!

Janet said...

No, I didn't see that comin' either!

Jed said...

You're not talking about the fat dumpy guy from Seinfeld are you? I hate Seinfeld. In what way could I possibly resemble this individual? Do all bald guys with glasses look like Jason Alexander?

This comparison is as annoying as the annoying fact that all teenagers with glasses in the 80s will have been told at one time or another that they resemble "that guy from revenge of the nerds".

And this is not an invitation to further sweeten the pot of ridicule in revenge for your not being able to come up with a snappy comeback to my calling you old.

It's like a story that Ray Bradbury forgot to write.

Oh My Gosh, I just cannot take it!! These are AWESOME!! I love when that twisted side ooozes out ;-) There cannot be that many more though, the poor guy is running out of ammo :-(

Janet said...

Darn you Jed!...I have enough trouble keepin' up as it is...now, I hadta' venture over into that unknown territory that is Facebook just to try and figure out this Jason shenanigans!

(has anyone else noticed that some of Marks word verification words have been quite nifty lately?)

I'm just doing my part to make sure Marks blog continues to be incomprehensible to the casual reader.

And Janet you surely missed this little gem:

Me to Corn Stone: Thanks for adding me! Good to know another fan of the much under-appreciated Frank Robbins! (note: Frank Robbins=obscure nerdy comic book reference)

Corn Stone ( note: have no idea if this is an actual human name, but he's from New Zealand): you betcha!

Mark: and TEEN BEAT! (Mark making fun of our geeky fanboyishness)

Me: Mark. It's TIGER Beat. Teen Beat hasn't been around for over 15 years. Why are you so old? (Note: my exceedingly clever response to which Mark can conceive no answer)

Mark's revenge on his wall: The Jason Alexander ploy. Also, Mark on my wall: a reiteration of an initially playful, yet confoundingly stubborn snarky reply to the whorish self-promotion of my own work on Facebook, despite his clear understanding that my low self-esteem demands to be buoyed by the constant positive reinforcement of others.

Now you are enriched, Janet, by a new understanding of the endlessly time wasting impossible to follow internet interactions that occasionally make others feel they've somehow missed something, that they're out of the loop, when in fact the loop is just not that interesting, and is not so much as a loop, as a cul-de-sac.

OMG

molly said...

That's the first time I've seen her smile!

Janet said...

Jed....Mark never suffered from low self esteem, teen angst, or read Teen Beat....why?...he was "old" when he was seventeen...

greg said...

What's it called when you laugh and puke at the same time?

Jed said...

Right, right, it's me that has the low self-asteem, not Mark. Mark was just exploiting it.

And I don't think anyone's ever read Teen Beat. the only reason I knew it's publication history was because I googled it.

Janet said...

I dunno...I must've gotten my David Cassidy posters from some where....

Jed said...

Leif Garrett! You know you wanted him!
