Another Thing That Happened to Me
When I was younger, my best friend Walt was always dreaming up new money-making schemes, which he planned to use to get money to buy tapes. These tapes had music on them, played by people like Def Leppard and Rush. One tape of his we always used to listen to was made by Styx. It had some crazy story on it that didn't make any sense. Also some music.
So this time, Walt's scheme was to go to this stream and catch these fish that were also sold in pet stores. The fish looked like little rubber goats and they kept fish tanks clean be eating the junk off the glass. We would sell the fish to pet stores for money, and Walt would use his share to buy tapes.
So went and caught a bunch of the rubber goat fish; with nets so we wouldn't hurt them. It was really easy!
The guy at the pet store told us to get lost. He didn't want to buy our fish. He said that any jerk with a net could go to any stream and catch hundreds of them! I thought it that was really funny, but Walt was mad! Walt tried to imply that these fish were somehow special, and we had caught them using some unusual method, but the pet store guy wouldn't listen to Walt's lies. We went back to the stream and dumped the fish back. As far as I know, Walt is still mad at that guy.
Anyway, the point of the story is this: Walt gave me his Styx tape! He was tired of it, I think, and I don't think he wanted to listen to it anymore. Not me, though! I still listen to it! Thank you very much!

08/20/2004 Jon Matza: Hey Pony, was "Renegade" on the tape?
08/20/2004 Mr. Pony: No, Matza, the album Starfish is talking about is Kilroy Was Here, which, oddly enough, you helped us decipher. Perhaps even stranger, your advice came in the comment section of a port jervis short. Didn't you just mention him earlier today? And there's one other weird thing, but I forgot what it was.
08/20/2004 Jacob Starfish: Thanks, Ferucio! Thanks everybody! Bye!
