Girl: "I always clean the sheets. You never notice, but I always clean the sheets."
Guy: "What? We don't even have sheets on the bed right now."
Girl: "And do you want to know why we don't have sheets on the bed? Because the other night, after you'd bled on them--"
Guy: "--I bled on them because you kicked me."
Girl: "I did not kick you! It was that mole -- that mole that started bleeding, which I'm very concerned about, by the way. Your mole shouldn't just start bleeding like that. But anyway, I had just cleaned the sheets, and then your mole bled on them, and I went to clean them again and I thought, 'Why don't I see how long it would take him to notice there aren't even sheets on the bed?' So that's why we haven't had sheets on the bed for a month."

Late 20-something Guy 1: "The whole back of his truck was flooded."
Guy 2: "Sucks." (pause) "You know what would be awesome, though, converting the back of the truck into a hot tub."
Guy 1: "That is awesome. Can you imagine tailgating at the Eagles game?"
Guy 2: "Taking it down the shore, driving down the Ocean drive in it?"
Guy 1: "Dammit, where was this idea 10 years ago? When you're 19 in a hot tub riding down the street, you're a P-I-M-P, when you're 30 its just C-R-E-E-P-Y."
