04/29/2004 Will Disney (5): verbal tennis - five stars.
04/29/2004 Tiddlycove (5): Random verbal tennis. Just like real life.
04/29/2004 Phony Millions (4): 'I'm sorry, were you talking?' Such a chick line - drenched in entitlement and righteous indignation. Great stuff! What's everybody's favorite random line?
04/29/2004 qualcomm: this thing reminds me of that infocom psychiatrist game
04/29/2004 anonymous: Eliza! I did part of my Senior Thesis using that program.
04/29/2004 qualcomm: author, can't you have one of them shout "LERPA!" from time to time?
04/29/2004 anonymous: Of course I could do that. I can do anything.
04/29/2004 qualcomm: also, have another girl come in at some point and make out with the blonde!
04/29/2004 qualcomm: why is this argument taking place in the house where robert deniro and christopher walken are made to play russian roulette in "the deer hunter"? Mau! Mau!
04/29/2004 Jon Matza: Disappointed on 1st viewing b/c when the woman puts her arms up behind her head I her shirt was about to come off & they were going to have sex. Wasn't overwhelmed all in all, though I appreciate the effort & like some of the individual one-liners ("oh I'm sorry, are you angry?", "Do you think you can afford that, emotionally speaking?")...Might've liked it better if the arguers were plants or something. I'd call this a 3 by Pony standards but too yellow to vote.
04/29/2004 Jon Matza: that's 'I thought her shirt was about to come off...'
04/29/2004 anonymous: Matza, you dammithead, if you think Pony deserves a three, you should give him a three!
04/29/2004 Jon Matza (4):
04/29/2004 Jon Matza: I roasted you, pal.
04/29/2004 Ferucio P. Chhretan (5): Aside from Penny Pulaski this is the only moving short? Or are there others I have not been made aware of.
I like this a lot because it is extremely economical. But can it really be classed as a short? It's sort of perpetual. Maybe one of the lines should be "etc"
04/29/2004 Benny Maniacs (5): Drawrings: *****
04/29/2004 TheBuyer (5): Thorow in a couple of, "Where would you like to be served the court documents?" and that's my day at work. Ha!
04/29/2004 qualcomm (3): we are unamused.
04/29/2004 Ewan Snow: By the short, TheBuyer's comment, or both?
04/29/2004 qualcomm: both, now you mention it. pretty short, but i am largely unmoved.
04/29/2004 TheBuyer: Hit the "go" button too quick, people keep walking up behind me...the five comes mostly because it took me so long to figure out the argument was going nowhere; to the tune of about ten minutes of waiting for a punchline. I love getting suckered sometimes.
04/29/2004 scoop (3): If these were like Sleestaks or something I think maybe it would work.
04/29/2004 anonymous: I'll kill you.
04/30/2004 Ferucio P. Chhretan: That's so creepy. I was just thinking about Sleestaks today. That's really really not right.
04/30/2004 mr.coffee (5): Nice work Mr.Pony.
Love how it keeps going in a vicious circle...just like arguing with my bitches.
04/30/2004 Not Lisa (4):
04/30/2004 anonymous: "If you're not Lisa, then who are you?"
04/30/2004 Not Lisa: Really, anonymous, why do you care?
04/30/2004 Mr. Pony: That was meant to read "From Author". Apparently after the author's identity is revealed, "From Author" shows up as a common anonymous user. So much for the tiny bit of authority I could have pulled out of that. Anyway, the quotes around the question were meant to signify that I don't really care, or at least I'm pretending not to. Also that you don't have to answer the question.
04/30/2004 Not Lisa: Okay Pony-boy, next time you "try on" being authoritarian, play out the whole scene. Don't get me all bothered, and then go limp. And stop being so nice, it doesn't suit you.
04/30/2004 Mr. Pony: Are you going to start yelling now?
04/30/2004 qualcomm: Is what you just said supposed to have been logical?
04/30/2004 Mr. Pony: And just where do you think you're going with that idea?
04/30/2004 Not Lisa: Are you even listening to yourself?
04/30/2004 Ferucio P. Chhretan: etc!!!
04/19/2005 John Slocum (3): I remember not liking this so much when it came out. Basically, I don't know what to make of it. We are not amused.
