03/31/2005 deliciousbrains (3): Well hey, that was charming. I mean that. Clit.
03/31/2005 Partytime (3): I'm operating under the assumption that this is a commentary on the blandness of interaction in our compuculture, in which borderline humorous interchanges can be parlayed into something greater in the eyes of the participants.
03/31/2005 The Rid: Smells like a two. I mean, this is goofy. But not "good" goofy. Is there such a thing as the "Gentlemen's Three" on Acme?
03/31/2005 TheBuyer: I like this Vomit one better.
03/31/2005 Litcube: Hrm. I'm going to post Yahzick & Buyer chat logs now. Also, I might not.
03/31/2005 Klause Muppet: Yahzick: Whatcha doin?
Buyer: Nut'n
Yahzick: Lets invite Litcube
Buyer: Why?
Lictube: Hieeeeeee
Yahzick: What happen'd?
Buyer: Not sure ;P
Yahzick: So
Buyer: So
Yahzick: ...So

04/1/2005 Mr. Pony (3): I'm going to go with a version of Partytime's interpretation that uses plainer words. One thing I found bothersome about this (but only incidentally so) were the unrealistic response times. Still, we can all learn something from the message this short has to teach us.
04/1/2005 cromagnon: Unrealistic response times? Haha... This conversation actually happened, you ho-satchels.
04/1/2005 Mr. Pony: Really? Did steelerfan read and respond to ScottishTerry's request to put the conversation on the website in one Earth second? That's possible, sure, but that is what I meant by unlikely. Not unlikely as in "I don't believe you", but in the literal sense.
04/1/2005 Mr. Pony: Are you steelerfan?
04/1/2005 Litcube: Steelerfan types 540 words per minute.
04/1/2005 TheBuyer: Hot.
04/2/2005 cromagnon: It's real! I swear it on my mother's grave... and she has yet to pass. But when the time comes, the swear shall hold true. Ho-satchels.
