2. daveintexas - September 19, 2012

Very likely matey.

3. BrewFan - September 19, 2012

Nope, geoff, you were second to last…

4. Sobek - September 19, 2012

I had never seen it. I don’t think my life is much improved.

5. Retired Geezer - September 19, 2012

@ Gangnam Style

Holy Carp! 221 MILLION hits?

I guess it’s time to recycle my Pirate joke;
(Condensed for Charity)

Guy walks into a bar and sees a Pirate with a peg leg.

“If you don’t mind me asking, what happened to your leg”?

“Arrrr, I fell overboard and a shark bit it off”

“Why do you have a hook where your hand should be”?

“Arrrr, some scurvy dog cut it off with a Cutlass.”

“Why do you have a patch over your eye”?

“Arrrr, a scurvy seagull shit in my eye”.

“How did that make you lose your eye?”

“Arrrrrrrrrr, it was me first day with the hook”.

It helped me because Koreans are apparently weirder than Taiwanese.

8. geoff - September 20, 2012

I’ve watched it 3 times now – it’s really addictive. We’ll have to do that horse-riding dance at all the meetups.

9. kevl - September 20, 2012

Five years?! Dang you guys are getting OLD.

10. daveintexas - September 20, 2012

I be’s agreein with ya lass.

11. lauraw - September 20, 2012

I’ve never seen that video.

12. lauraw - September 20, 2012

Just the .gif of that crazy gay guy in the elevator.

13. daveintexas - September 20, 2012

Yeah, it’s, interesting, to say the least.

>> We’ll have to do that horse-riding dance at all the meetups.

Yeah, it’s not like there’s no alcohol involved in those things. I can see this.

Gangnam is an affluent district of Seoul. I think I have been to Seoul about 18 times.

It’s where they have their equivalent of Rodeo Drive.

15. Michael - September 20, 2012

Full disclosure — I did not find Gangnam Style by myself. Doug sent me the link awhile back. I decided not to post it because IB was clearly behind the curve. I’ve read that the lyrics are pretty funny in Korean.

16. HayZeus - September 20, 2012

Michael’s is the kind of guy that will one-shot a cup of coffee while still hot.

On another note, how the heck is it that you lot have been talking like a pirate for five years now anyway? Inconceivable!

17. HayZeus - September 20, 2012

Waitaminute how did that “is” sneak in there? Stupid freakin’ double-edit… *grumble*

18. daveintexas - September 20, 2012

kevl better jump your shit or I’m gonna feel like I was singled out.

which now that I think about it, ain’t really all that bad.

19. Michael - September 20, 2012

On another note, how the heck is it that you lot have been talking like a pirate for five years now anyway?

Aaar matey, ya just don’t get the thrill of swashbuckling, the thunder of cannon, and blood on the deck.

20. Michael - September 20, 2012

To be sure, pirating is a risky occupation, but the pillage and plunder are almost as good as a 401k plan.

21. Retired Geezer - September 20, 2012

Wow… Hey Zeus…Really?

Welcome home.

22. daveintexas - September 20, 2012

I have an eye patch.

I’m ready.

23. Sobek - September 20, 2012

Hay Zeus!!!

24. HayZeus - September 21, 2012

Well hello to you too, Sobek!

I’m not dead, Geezer. I’m just… resting.

25. Lipstick - September 22, 2012

Mr. L played it for me, and it’s a bit catchy. I keep hearing it as “sexy condom style”.

Go on, listen to it and tell me I’m wrong.
