When Pingers Attack

In addition to Paul and I meeting at my wedding earlier this month, there was also a group shot taken of a handful of Pingers. A few people were missing (apparently they thought that lurking-with-occasional-posting didn’t make them a “Pinger”), but check out the motley crew that posed:

Group of Pingers... scary, ain't it?

(L to R): Dave, Franko, Aaron (back), Huyen, Ryan, Robert (back), Paul, Matt (back), and Rob

Even pros can't make me look un-evil in a picture. WTF?!

Were you on a hill? was there an earthquake? why are you all leaning?

Liz: It makes more sense when you can see the next pic on the roll--the beatdown shot.

I've known Paul for a long time. When I saw that picture, I didn't even recognize him. He looks like something out of a classic monster movie. What a well dressed monster! I agree with Liz, what's with all the leaning? Was it the "wacky photographer's" idea?

No one has ever called me liz ever in my life. Until now!

e-Liz: I would have typed your full name but I feeling lazy.

If it's any consolation, almost every calls me "Rob", despite the fact that I have never considered myself a "Rob".

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
