Aaron -

I'm watching Newlyweds right now, so if this message is rambling and
blonde, that may explain it.

You wouldn't happen to be inspector number 11, would you?

Because I was in the shower tonight, and when I was washing my ass, I
happened to find a sticker on it that said "Quality Control Checked by
Inspector 11."

I hope your night went well.

09/29/2004 Will Disney: what does 'r' stand for, here?
09/29/2004 Will Disney: specifically, i mean.
09/29/2004 Will Disney: eliza: do you understand this?
09/29/2004 Eliza: Can you elaborate on that?
09/29/2004 Streifenbeuteldachs: The "I hope your night went well" line is, like, poignant and shit.
09/29/2004 Streifenbeuteldachs: Eliza: I hope you don't mind my cursing?
09/29/2004 anonymous: Washing ass stories get an extra star.
09/29/2004 Eliza: Can you elaborate on that?
09/29/2004 Will Disney: i apologize; this is one dumb-ass eliza. i'll look around for a smarter one...
09/29/2004 Mr. Pony: She doesn't do the repeating thing, but that doesn't always come out as elegantly as one would like it. Also, she's got ice water in her veins.
09/29/2004 Streifenbeuteldachs (3): Think you can find one with a spicy latino attitude? Anyhoo, I'll open the bidding at 2.5.
09/29/2004 Mr. Pony: Kinda feel like this is a Pony two and an OSS one. What's the joke here?
09/29/2004 TheBuyer: If he was inspecting her at the time, maybe?
09/29/2004 qualcomm: i hope i'm not making an obvious point, you two, but i believe this is a reference to the little "inspection" stickers found in some brands of underwear (most famously, Hanes)
09/29/2004 Mr. Pony: That was kind of an obvious point, but I appreciate the lack of respect!
09/29/2004 Mr. Pony: Seriously, though, I don't get it.
09/29/2004 qualcomm: well if you knew that, how did you not get it? the letter-writer's underwear sticker wound up on her ass, so she's asking her man if he left it there.
09/29/2004 qualcomm: i'm not saying it's a good joke, but it's quite clear.
09/29/2004 TheBuyer: Kind of obvious but is it sticker-transfer, or is she some kind of underwear-inspector Annie, or does she have a team of ass inspectors that only go by their first names to protect their families or what?
09/29/2004 qualcomm: [note: i did not mean to imply that the letter-writer is necessarily a woman. plenty of men have boyfriends named aaron, too.]
09/29/2004 Mr. Pony: I'll rephrase: I understood the situation, but the overt joke was so clear and so simple, that I was worried that I had missed something, that there was a larger joke lurking beneath the surface. It feels a little "Laughter: The Best Medicine" to me, and I assumed that I was just wasn't getting it.
09/29/2004 qualcomm: no you got it, guy. this baby's a real stinker.
09/29/2004 qualcomm: yeah, except for its ribaldry, this is real reader's digest quality stuff.
09/29/2004 TheBuyer (2): Ya, I'm giving in.
09/29/2004 Mr. Pony: You know what threw me off? The "Newlyweds" thing.
09/29/2004 Acme Shorts: The author has precisely 59 minutes to explain any further meaning before drastic measures are taken.
09/29/2004 Litcube (2): Sorry.
09/29/2004 Joe Frankenstone (2): Yep -- reads like something someone who thinks they are funny may write in a look-how-surreal-I'm-being email to a friend.
09/29/2004 TheBuyer: Actually, if I got that email from someone I knew I might laugh. How much time left until drastic measures are taken?
09/29/2004 Acme Shorts: Damn, I forgot to take drastic measures. Oh well.
09/29/2004 qualcomm (1): allow me
09/29/2004 Mr. Pony (2): Indeed.
09/29/2004 the_provoker (4): I have it on good authority this was, in fact, an actual email which "Aaron" or Author received after he got done banging "R"
