Lovechild...Never meant to be...*

Barb: "So, I've been cleaning out my closets, getting rid of all my old stuff. I'm a packrat."

JR: "Oh yeah? Like what?"

Barb: "Oh, it was so sad, I finally got rid of my 8 track player."

{appalled stares directed at Barbara from 2 of us in our 20's}

Barb: "I had a Meatball 8 track. It was great. I LOVE Meatball. He has such an awesome voice...meatballllll... meat... meat... meat LOAF."

{Hysterical laughter}

JR: "You know, my dad met MeatLOAF. He was gonna redesign his bedroom, or kitchen, or something like that, but it fell through."

Brittany: "Did your dad call him MeatLOAF?"

JR: "I think he called him by his real name... I can't remember now.'

Barb: "Your dad is SO LUCKY. I LOVE him."

Brittany: "Yeah, you love him. What's his name again?"

Barb: "I know it's MeatLOAF, I just got confused."

JR: "Meatball is what he went by before he got big."

Brittany: "I was thinking it was Barb and Meatloaf's lovechild."

*It's stuck in your head now, isn't it?

Wouldn't a Meatloaf love child be more something along the lines of "MeatProduct"? Or if he went into business as a private investigator, "MysteryMeat"? Maybe when he goes drinking he has a fifth of "MeatSauce"? Or perhaps when he calls in sick, they have to find a "MeatSubstitute"... or do they just find a "Vegitarian"?

Or he could just go by his nickname...

Okay, more than likely I am just missing the joke, but did Steve-O (the guy with the ENGLISH degree) just mis-spelled "vegetarian?" There must be a joke I am missing. Please explain it to my dumb ass.

Also, for those interested, I would like to let you know that today Barb informed me that Meatball's real name is Dennis. I have no knowledge as to whether or not this it true. And, as a side not, I think I have been involved in more discussions about him this week than in my entire life put together. I work with some crazy-ass-bitches.

I mean that in the best possible way.

You're missing the joke. I have an MBA; I don't make mistakes. I pay people to make them for me and take the blame.
