    Hmmm, I guess I could throw around some of the characters/ideas from the book here. It's not just this guy, I have a whole stable of weird friends of mine. Some gems:

    The smelly cheap roomate who was afraid of onions
    the foreign exchange student who was super messy and had ties to the yakuza
    the obsessive fatso liar who lied to his mom about where he was going to college
    The eclectic "artist", who had no talent and thought that red trenchcoats and bowling shoes were a fashion statement
    The overly sensitive dude who was pussywhipped and basically neutered himself for a girl only to get cuckolded after a 2 year relationship

    actually his parents were very lenient with him, and he's an only child. He never did well in school and never showed the typical asian stereotypes. I don't think he had the typical asian upbringing. But I find it interesting that he exhibits the "asian jersey shore" type personality.

    A lot of his stories are actually him growing up. I guess I should have known that he was gonna turn out weird.

    Oh my God, I need moar. These stories are too funny to be made up. I don't think anyone could invent a character so unbelievable.

    Is douchefriend going to lure me to his apartment and axe me to death to the sounds of phil collin's susudio? Only time will tell.
    I'm quite certain sociopaths prefer "In the Air Tonight" by our diminutive friend, accompanied by holding your head underwater in the bathtub.

    Good stories though.

    Anyway, she gets him to try on these clothes that are obviously too big, obviously too expensive, and obviously sewn by a colorblind mental patient with stubby fingers, but she convinced him to buy it because of the big versace logo on the back. He clumsily tried to ask her out on a date, but she said she was busy (the sale was closed at that point). So began the night of terror.

    BDC89435 should learn a thing or two from you about telling a fucking story.

    A bit better than yesterday, all day vomiting for
    ...douchefriend had been visiting from North Dakota (he was going to school there another funny story).

    Okay. Just need to point out here that douchefriend just went to school here. We didn't spawn him; we didn't raise him; we had nothing to do with him being him.

    North Dakota polished him into the diamond that he is now.

    I thought this thread was leaning to dead, hence the intermission.

    But like a Phoenix, this thread is rising from itself into new life and new entertainment.
