Was talking to an old friend recently and remembered something that happened to me in college that avoided a confrontation.

* Bar. I somehow angered an already beligerant thick-neck, apparently his beef was that I was having too much fun and should be miserable like him . In order to avoid fighting the guy, I told him I'd get him and his two friends a round. Told the bartender to give the table another round and a shot for me and my friend and put it on their tab. The bartender confirmed this with the paying table by gesturing to the guy's table for another round while pointing to me and my friend and the neck-guy shook his head yes.

We slammed the shots, told the bartender to add one of those pig's tounges from the pickle jar to the table's order and walked out.


[edit]ok, not exactly averting a confrontation or danger - since that guy would have thrown me off a bridge if he saw me again....but it was funny at the time.

if it was, maybe the writer modeled the characters after us.

If we keep having exchanges like this Joel, people may not be able to tell the difference.

Definitely occured in Dumb and Dumber. However, this occured after Loyd threw the salt shaker over his shoulder and hit Sea Bass. This later lead to an ugly confrontation in a men's bathroom stall, leading Loyd to seek a "happy place" while sucking his thumb.

Did it really happen to you, Ed? Knowing your sense of humor I wouldn't put it past you. (that's a compliment, I think)

It happened exactly the way I told it. Not particularly clever (pretty much just slipping out on a tab), but the pickled pigs tounge was a nice touch.

That's funny!

I once asked a guy to dance that was "maddogging" me.
