Apparently, "La Brea Tar Pits" is a pleonasm.

The introduction to this show was best ever, I was listening to it on headphones in public and I was in fits of laughter at \\\"hawk back a rail or two\\\".

I did go thumbs down on the drinking once the possibility of it being fake was raised, but I totally bought it at the time.

Cameron, If I could make the good Hrabbi\'s spot on the cast a contractual obligation of my friendship with the Maestro, I would.

Sorry, the boychik stays in the picture.

Thanks everyone. These comments (as always) are just awesome. You know I would only try to pull one over on all of you out of love.

Or PURE EVIL.

Either or.

Anyway-

I have to go stovepipe a heroin suppository.

Whew.

Woof.

I was also skeptical at first, but started to believe it. Oh well.

I plan to take you up on your suggestion and buy you a drink (Diet Coke) at Balticon. I will be drinking harder stuff (Regular Coke).

Another multiple name: a paddy is a rice field, so a rice paddy is a rice rice field.

Los Angeles is sometimes called the \\\'City of the Angels\\\', but the full name given to is was \\\'El Pueblo de La Reyna de Los Angeles\\\': Translation: \\\'Town of the Queen of the Angels\\\'. So technically they are the Town of the Queen of the Angels Angels of Anaheim.

More rantings:

Star Jones, what a rhymes-with-witch. I remember back for her corporate sponsored wedding she said on TV that she was waiting to decide on the music while she saw what gifts she was being offered in return. Hello? That\\\'s called Payola, and it is illegal.

Cameron

George, your Minoishe Interroberg\\\'s To Make With the Good English segment is really interesting grammar-nerd stuff, but it\\\'s spoilt by an extremely annoying character. Drop the rabbi. The content is strong enough to stand on its own!

Marvin

Well, shucks! I had my moment of skepticism last week, but then squelched it. I have to confess, I was much more enamored of the idea that Geo had dramatically thrown away his lifelong sobriety for the sake of a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience. I figured he\'d get sick and have a rotten hangover but not die. There are way too many frat boys running around in the world for that little tequila-binge to be a death sentence.

(Note that the foregoing is a completely unscientific utterance, unencumbered by research, analysis, or credentials of any kind.)

Plus I guess I don\'t really have much empathy for the whole \"refusing to take a drink on principle\" thing. Sympathy, yes -- I think I can understand how this decision could be very important to someone as a symbol of resistance to social conformity and what-not. But not *empathy.* Refusing to have a drink on principle because it might impair one\'s rationality makes about as much sense to me as refusing to go down because it might get one\'s face wet & smelly. In both cases the consequences are temporary and one risks missing one of life\'s very interesting facets.

PS -- But, umm, if you\'re gonna choose to give up one or the other? Stay off the fuckin\' sauce. I\'m just sayin\'.

PPS -- And I have to chime in with the others -- you\'ve never struck me as being a dick, Geo, and I really admire the rapport you have with your family. But because you\'re smart and opinionated and right more often than not, it\'s only natural you\'re going to leave in your wake some people who cry \"dick\" to cover their own shortcomings.

Yeah ya got me. I had a sneaking suspicion that you didn\\\'t do it, but it was out weighed by my trusting soul not believing you would play such a dastardly, dirty, evil, horrible trick on me :D

nolachief
eleven and a half years ago

All right, Geo, I\'m putting in your Oscar nomination now. Take your bow; that was good. Despite my doubts, and despite KNOWING how much you like headgames, it sounded too real to be fake, dammit! Who gave you \"dialect coaching\" on how to react to a shot of bad tequila?

Still impressed you got my name right...

Sion
eleven and a half years ago

I can\\\'t believe I fell for that, you dirty, rotton, underhanded, lowdown (descends into Muttley-ish grumbling)

Man, I\\\'m such a putz.

Reggie
eleven and a half years ago

If I had listened a minute longer last night, I would have heard George make the same comment about \\\"maybe saying it was a lie is a lie\\\" that I did....which of course means what I said is completely moot.

ah well...glad you\\\'ve got my back, Chuck.

:-D

lilbuckaru
eleven and a half years ago

Yea me and Yea you. I knew you weren\\\'t drinking. My husband doesn\\\'t drink. Never has. Never will. He enjoys laughing at everyone else too much. I thought you would be the same.
As for the last show, how could anyone think you are anything but totally cool with your family. Your mom is great and you obviously think so to.
Keep the great shows coming.

Getting drunk is only good if you\\\'re getting sex out of it. And even then I\\\'m not so sure.

Ms. Information
eleven and a half years ago

Well, I was working next to the Maestro, and I had to keep looking over to make sure he wasn\'t pouring that horrid [ancient!] tequila.

Jew-lasers? Do I need to ask my rabbi for those?

richard

I checked last week\\\'s comments, and I didn\\\'t notice anyone else with their thumb down there... just me. My thoughts when listening to the show last week;

A) George getting drunk isn\\\'t likely
B) On tequila even less likely
C) His reaction to that first shot wasn\\\'t enough. He was clearly able to breathe still and there was no retching.
D) Have you never seen anyone get drunk while you remained sober? Ethanol virgin or otherwise...
E) The slurring, etc came on too quickly. At best, it seemed to be caused by the placebo effect :)

Oh, and according to all the drinking games I participated in or witnessed while in college, 8 shots in an hour, even to the new drinker isn\\\'t likely to kill you unless you\\\'re allergic... but you wouldn\\\'t be WELL.


Clair

/Fine/ acting last week. I\\\'m glad I had my seedling of doubt, but you did such a good job of acting, I doubted my doubt.

Marci
eleven and a half years ago

It did seem out of character, but George, you are one hell of an actor. I didn\'t believe it until about halfway thru the show, then I fell for it... hook, line and sinker!
Nice job. Very entertaining!

If you ever DO decide to imbibe, I\'d recommend a nice red wine, not something too harsh.

Icepick
eleven and a half years ago

You had me convinced at the time, excellent acting. But, when push came to shove and I had my thumb out it was pointed down. When forced to think about it, I just couldn\\\'t see you doing it for a bit.

Chuck D.
eleven and a half years ago

I am also man enough to admit that Reggie fell for it. What a putz!

I use my hedgehog as a shuttlecock.

braveNewNerd
eleven and a half years ago

Yes, I was convinced it was real. I will never trust anything you say again.

On the positive side, I\\\'m glad I no longer have to believe religious people are morons. That bit was a joke too, right?

Steve Andrew
eleven and a half years ago

Well, you convinced me - I totally fell for it! I\'m a real inexperienced lightweight when it comes to drink, so I\'ve no idea what 8 shots in an hour will do to someone. Geo, I feel suitably foolish, but also relieved that it was a fake.

Hmm, and to think that on a certain album I recently bought there was a song that said I should think for myself...

Reggie
eleven and a half years ago

haha....George, I\\\'m man enough to admit that I fell for it.

I\\\'m glad you didn\\\'t sell yourself out for a gag though....

....unless saying that it was fake is what is actually fake.....



Arkle

Hoo boy. I was actually once signed up on Ashley Madison. I guess just trying to act out my Mrs. Robinson complex. :-(

Flib

Good to hear that you didn\\\'t really get wasted last week, George. I hereby take back what I said about losing respect for you.

braveNewNerd
eleven and a half years ago

Woo Hoo First Post.

I have nothing else to say, sorry.

Dragavan
eleven and a half years ago

It\\\'s rare that I am glad I was wrong about something and was suckered in, but I am glad about last show. And I was skeptical about last show until that last part. That is what made me finally believe it was real. You did real good with that aspect of it.

As for the rest of the show. Well done and most enjoyable, as usual.
