names have been changed to protect the pop-culturally challenged
pop-culturally challenged person: aha! you are so busted!
pop culture queen: aha? what 'aha!'?
pccp: in your blog, you said that whenever that car commercial with that gary numan song comes on, you dance on the couch. every time.
pccp: well, you're not dancing, are you? aha! busted!
[pcq stares at television for a moment, then turns to pccp.]
pccp: see? you're busted.
pccp: oh yeah.
pcq: yeah. that commercial right there? not a nissan commercial. some commercial for some american car -- can't tell them apart, so i don't know which one. anyway, it's not nissan. and that guy singing? not gary numan.
pcq: no. that would be randy newman.
pcq: of course, i can see how you'd get the two confused. both had hits in the early 80s. gary numan with cars and randy newman with i love l.a.. and, of course, the controversial short people. i'm sure it was an honest mistake. i mean, stylistically, they're so similiar i can see how easy it would be to confuse them.
pccp: shut up.
pcq: also, just to be sure we're all clear, i never claimed to dance during any paul newman performance. even if he sings.
pccp: ha ha.
pcq: or laraine newman either, not that she's really doing much these days.
pccp: i think you've made your point.
pcq: or even that guy who played that guy newman on seinfeld.
pccp: really, i concede the point.
pcq: okay, i have to admit that those last three, those were just sass talk. so, you know, i apologize for that.
