Places in Washington You Should Never Go

Ok, so I'm only going to show you one...but I think it's an excellent representation of an idea that should never have been actualized.

Ignore for a moment that the Chinese food is only a dollar...and that you're supposed to leave with it. Instead, please note the spelling of "inn". Are they just playing with the spelling for funsies or can you actually stay there? And if you DO stay there...do YOU become an ingredient in the $1 food?



AAAAnyway...

Chopwatch '08(TM) comes to a close. I know you'll all be sorry to see them go. It was an exciting adventure. I know you'll all be looking forward to future pointless and somewhat humilating shenanaigans I can talk him into in the name of science. And amusement. Without further ado...

Week 4: Completion as we will ever know it


The Missus has fought long and hard, and has kind of mostly succeeded. Though they wouldn't necessarily make Ulysses S. Grant proud...they've been sculpted into a pleasant shape and I like to stroke them like that James Bond villain strokes his cat. You know, the white one.


And even though I think they make him look like a hipster with heart, he detests them and wants them to go away. This is his pleading face.


But now I have to hold up my end of the bargain. I don't remember if I told you about that. I made the deal that if he grew me some chops, I would give him a manlier blog name. Which I will right now. Everyone, meet...

His new manly name should be "Grasshopper" and we'll call you "Mistress Po". Could you buy some of that Chinese food and put up a picture?

Orhan Kahn said...

A handsome smile.

toppsyturvy said...

well, don't just leave us hanging like that...

Rachel said...

"..." WTF?

That's either a cliffhanger or a piss-poor excuse for a name.

Maybe you should call him "the incredible fuzz" or "Fuzzy" for short.

I bet if you listen, you will find there is no birdsong around that restaurant. No happy-go-lucky sparrows, no softly cooing pigeons. Not any more.

The missus has surely earned his manly moniker. He should be called something mighty yet the name should also indicate his willingness to yield to a massive force greater than his own, namely you. I reckon he should be called Continental Plate.

nic said...

Best nickname I heard was actually a name for a small turtle. They named him M'Lord Walnut. Is that not cute?

That restaurant makes me want to weep. It boggles my mind that they're still in business; or maybe it just boggles my mind that people don't have common enough sense to realize that there is such thing as "too cheap to be good."

Excuse me, I have to go wrestle the camo pants off my kid before we leave for soccer pictures. This will not happen.

The Future said...

You came up with the bad name, I think you must come up with the good name to repent your sins or some such hogwash.

AxAtlas said...

Jeeves. Call him Jeeves.

theWaif said...

He should be called the Saint after putting up with Chopwatch and being called the Missus for this long. Lordy, I would've committed roomaticide by now under such torture.

EmmaK said...

I have a name for him: Sir Spankalicious

Robert the Skeptic said...

It reminds me of "In and Out Burger" which, I can tell you, is so very very true!.

Wow, that was awkward said...

I hate to see The Missus moniker go away. Why not just build in some manliness. Like The Hairy Missus.

Woozie said...

He can be Stalin. Nothing more manly than Stalin. He'll kill you in your sleep on Christmas.

Sarah said...

Remember when we used to get $.35 fries at Hot 'n Now? Mmmmm, that was good shit.
You forget, he already has a nickname, it's Bernice.

Stinkypaw said...

I'd call him "Sport" 'cause he's been a good sport! ;-)

Kara said...

goranas - no the fuck way. i'm not going back there.

everyone else - you just gave me a poll idea.

Interesting to know.
