The Daily Ping

The Ping is self-aware.

I Am Bryan Bernard

The other night I was talking with a nice older woman from down the block. Even though we’d spoken a few times before, I didn’t know her name, so I introduced myself to her. When we exchanged names, I realized that she now knows me by a name completely different from my own, thanks to my tendency to mumble.

It took me a while to figure out why she thought my name was “Bryan Bernard.” Then I realized, that was what she heard when I said, “My name’s Ryan… Ryan, with an ‘R’.”

I thought you were Maury.

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!
