Alternative Interjections



This has nothing to do with anything, but I thought it was a funny story.

The other day, a friend and I were having a contest to see who could do their taxes fastest (nerd race!). He pulled ahead, so I shouted "Matt Lauer! You got me."

He pauses and looks up. "What'd you just say?"

"...You got me?"

"No, the first part. Matt Lauer?"

"Yeah, the guy from the Today Show."

"I know who he is. Did you seriously just use his name as an interjection?"

I nod. "Yeah. I like to think of it as 'taking the Lauer's name in vain.'"

"You make so little sense sometimes, that when you talk...it's like one of Modest Mouse's early albums is playing."


"That was an insult."

"Aw, Matt Lauer."

"You ain't machines and you ain't land,

And the plants and the animals, they are linked,

And the plants and the animals eat each other.

Oh my God and oh my cat."

-"Never Ending Math Equation" by Modest Mouse

If I didn?t know you, I?d say you were making that up. Which reminds me, I saw a reenactment of the ?drivin? me nuts? joke on Robot Chicken. It didn?t last much longer than Akira the Musical.Some men are born geeks, others achieve geekness, while some are just really damn weird.
