I used to love her, but I had to kill her, I knew I'd miss her, so I had to keep her, she's buried right in my back yard

Tonight I went to pub trivia with some friends. One of the questions asked which artist went on tour in 2004, played in 96 U. S. cities and became the highest grossing male artist. We had no idea. We just started naming artists that we thought might fit the bill, even if we didn't know they were on tour that year. I guessed Sting.

My friend said, "That's it! You got it."

I said, "I don't know. I was just throwing that out there. I don't really think it's him."

She replied, "I do. I'm 100% sure. If I'm wrong, you can murder me."

"How about if you're wrong you just give me a bj instead?"

"How about you can murder me, then have sex with my still warm corpse?"

"Deal!"

The answer was Prince.

When the guy announced that, I acted like I was going to choke her.

She said, "I'd like to recant and just blow you instead. I don't want to die."

I don't know. It seems to me that if you're willing to put the stakes that high, then you ought to be willing to pay the price if you are, in fact, wrong.

So, um, did you take the beej? You could always choke her to death with your ween.

WOW. I went there and it's only 10:30am.

I think I'd want verification that Prince was the highest grossing male artist that year. Firstly that he grossed that much, secondly that he's ACTUALLY MALE.

side note -

Just anounced this morning... MUSE coming to OKC Ford Center October 8th. Tickets already bought... and no need to talk the husband to taking me to Denver on the 2nd.

This is turning into a great day. Now go get yourself a bj, and turn your day great, too!

What if you just knocked her unconscious instead of killing her? Win Win in my book.

Lillie, I needed a ride back to my car, so had to leave early. She said she'd take a raincheck on the beej. She'd probably need to get clearance from her boyfriend too.

Heff, not only that, but wasn't that when he was simply known as that weird symbol thing that I wish I had a key on my keyboard for but don't?

Kym, you won't regret it - Muse puts on a great show.

Joanna, you should be!

Repliderium, I can see it now. "Here, does this rag smell like chloroform to you?"

I've missed a lot of good stuff around here. I think that Facebook page post below was just out of left field, and the 'Snakes on the Plane'/classroom testing thing was pretty damn funny. They probably needed to exhale anyway during the test.

Finally, Prince? Wow. I wouldn't have guessed that, and yeah, I tend to agree w/ you that if you willingly raise the stakes to that kind of level, well . . . and nice G N R post title too.
