You wake up. Yawn. Wipe the sleep and other detritus that may have accumulated from your eyes. God, last night sure rocked. But... what did you do? It's all kind of hazy. Something about a bottle of rum, a statue, and some clown portraits by Red Skelton. Or at least you hope they were portraits. You remember sending out some text messages... but you'll be damned if you remember what they were. That's where Texts From Last Night comes in. Now your very possibly true, but most likely fake, nocturnal e-missives live on in the imaginations of the rest of the world forever. Much like your shame.

(832): you are a cunt and I hated living with you and your skeezy boyfriend.Just thought I'd get that out there.

Look, I'm going to stop this now, but this really is a comedy goldmine:

(1-870): well not if you dont touch the other dude and concentrate on the chic
(870): what chic?

When I was drinking alcoholically in my twenties and thirties, black outs were a very common occurrence for me. Having any kind of tool to help with remembering, while perhaps embarrassing, would have been far better than the total fear of not knowing anything the next day. I am soooo glad I don't have to live like that anymore.

This is too much like real life for me.

Great post title!

(248): Incredible sex, Maddow, more sex, spoon, sex again

I hate it when my wife shares our stories with other people.

Pretty run of the mill until I fell in love with this one:

Ok seriously, can we bring back badminton?

You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.

There is a small mailbox here.

All of these text messages were actually sent to Ludacris. That's why the area codes are there.

These people are getting off easy. I once got blackout drunk and awoke the next morning to discover that at some point the night before I had gone onto a music site and downloaded a Toby Keith song.

I couldn't look at myself in the mirror for a week.

Blackout drinking is so funny!

I'm calling shenanigans. These are WAY more coherent than any text message I've ever sent and regretted later (predictive text on the iPhone always makes for a laugh).

My personal favorite story was blacking out while drinking out of a boot in a small bar in Belgium.

I came out of it in a nightclub, without any of my friends, having a conversation with a guy at the bar who was speaking Flemish - I don't even speak Flemish.

ah if only I had had a cell phone back then.....

Once in college I woke up to find out that I had kicked a good friend of mine in the nuts as a joke.

Twice.

Actually, sometimes predictive text is a lifesaver. Like the time I drunkenly texted an ex "I love toy" instead of "I love you," which was, ridiculously, easier to explain.

Phones and telegraphs and the internet all have a myriad of uses beyond getting laid. Until Twitter came along I don't think I used texting for anything beyond that.

(859): Your vagina is a self cleaning oven.

Is that an insult? A compliment? Backhanded?

OK, OK, last one:

(203): glad you had fun, i did too. am rubbing aloe on my butt now.

I wanted to say that this had lots of potential for double-entendre, but there's really only one entendre going on here.
