The Daily Ping

The Story About Ping was about a duck, not this website.

Curse them and their seven kids

You know you agree with me: this most annoying ad on the web. Even more than the “shoot the ____ for a free Ipod!” ads. Why? Because it’s been around for so damn long.

And honestly, there’s no way she married him unless she totally ditched those glasses and he lost all of the pretentiousness that’s dripping off of him.

I’m really curious about who those people really are. I remember seeing an article ages ago about a few of the people that were featured on classmates.com ads or one of the other reunion sites that said the people were current employees of the company. Wonder if that’s the case here, or if it’s just a case of “hey. find a homely looking woman and a preppy pretty boy picture in that old stock photo collection.”

And you know, Lynn never would have dated that dude. She would have seen right through him.

Maybe she was his Algebra tutor and they realized they had stuff in common.

It could happen.



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!
