I posted an IM message to a chatroom a while ago, and the ensuing conversation was so funny I’ve reproduced it here for the enjoyment of my legions of readers.
Kim: An internal email: “Good Afternoon The who has taken the big Stapler from the finance dept. could you PLEASE RETURN it ASAP” Roger Daltrey is here? Anyone have anything I can ask Pete Townshend to sign?
Johan: I’ll bring my camera phone.
** Jeremy grins.
Kim: it’s probably a typo though and I got so excited the last time she made a mistake, I think I’ll skip it. I Won’t Get Fooled Again
Jeremy: I’m trying to work “Pinball Wizard” or “Pictures of Lily” into the conversation, but failing.
Kim: the best I’ve got left is that I’ll wander over and pretend to be unimpressed by crying out “Who Are You” and maybe reinforce that by Mooning them
Johan: Jeremy: It’s Hard to work arbitrary album names into the conversation.
** Jeremy groans.
Johan: It just is. I Can’t Explain it
Kim: Substituting the titles in is quite tricky, yes sometimes inspiration strikes though, and it’s Pure and Easy
Johan: Did you hear the old-timer’s version of My Generation on Radio 2000?
Jeremy: I’ll come up with A Quick One soon, though.
Jeremy: I didn’t.
Kim: You Better You Bet I did
Johan: That one could be seen a mile away with the Naked Eye.
Kim: only if you were The Seeker
Jeremy: Perhaps, but I Can See For Miles And Miles with binoculars.
Kim: the sad thing is that I’m doing this from memory alone 🙂
Johan: So you can see the end of the Endless Wire?
Johan: Kim: that’s not sad, that’s impressive
Jeremy: I’ve been cheating slightly.
Kim: there’s a store of useless Who trivia Behind the Blue Eyes of mine hmm – end of the line for these? I guess The Song is Over
** Johan nods. My knowledge is failing. It’s Not Enough.
Kim: I Don’t Even Know Myself how much I can do
Johan: Who’s Next?
