This dude right here deserves my propers.

I am flagging this dude as proof that there are really brilliant story tellers out there (beyond Charlie Murphy and his "Hollywood Stories", which even if they're fake, are beyond the realms of mortal creativity and hilarity).

Back in the day, this fellow here wrote a similar story to my "Accidental Situation". His was "The Crapped Pants Situation", and it was AMAZINGLY funny. Much funnier than my own. I only bring this up because as I was out for my lunch jog (I think it's a "soft J", like "yogging") and suffering from heatstroke, I remembered his hilarious story. I also remembered that he had several other stories that I really enjoyed reading. So when I got back to my desk and did a search for him, it turns out his blog is hella-un-updated, and there are no links to his old stories on it. Shit. Shit, shit, shit.

Which usually only means one thing. Dude got published, or is publishing himself, and doesn't want to leave anything up there for free. That means two things for me. The first is that I'll have to buy his material if I ever want to read any of it again, which is totally cool with me. And the second is that YOU will have to buy his stuff if you are to believe me when I say that he's a good goddamn writer, which may not be so cool with you.

But, whatever. I remembered his story was brilliantly written, and that it was better than mine, so I wanted to give the man some propers. But he went and got all secretive about his work. So be it. Oh... but I found it (thank you interweb!). So READ IT BEFORE HE HIDES IT!!!! It's seriously good. SERIOUSLY. GOOD.

Damn it's hot in this piece. Peas.

Hysterical. But your story was funnier. BTW... I was trying to find your coward story (about the potentially explosive bar-b-q grill). I was trying to tell my friend about it on the phone but I was laughing so hard that she now thinks I'm an idiot. Can you post the link?
