The Bickersons Rebooted

A potential implication of J-. B. Pontalis's thought is that integrating with another linguistic and cultural tradition means having to lose one's language. A person with a few years of marriage behind them might like to add: integrating with the other sex means discovering one never had any language at all! ["What?" - "What?"]

Awesome. I'm really glad that service is being used for the purpose I imagined (extremely cheap and lazy but fairly good film-making).

Wait...is this made BY xtranormal.com? That seems pretty close to Pepsi Blue.

I'm thinking that the site is mildly amusing but this post sucks.

"The dick has decided that this is a pointless call." I'm ending every phone conversation this way from now on.

They should have kids. Then they wouldn't bicker as much.

I made a whole little movie with one guy with a beard saying "Maybe you should have fleshed this post with a little more explanation so it made some sense to a casual reader" and another guy without a beard saying "Yes, asshat; what were you thinking?" but when I got to the end I didn't want to bother registering.

I registered and made one but it takes forever and ever to "render" which probably means I shouldn't have made it all about bacon.

This is interesting but I don't understand.

I'm not sure I want to know more as I suspect then I won't find it as interesting.

This thing had me laughing out loud.

I just realized I cannot wait to show these to my girlfriend, because they are hilarious. But there's also the chance I'll introduce it wrong, or she won't like it, and we'll end up having a complete Bickersons moment! Hilarity.

I was expecting actual Bickerson's material.

Husband: Where's my BOURBON??!
Wife: I stuck it in the wall safe there, you idiot.
Husband: That's not a wall safe, that's a PORTHOLE!
