Why should pajamas and naked boys preclude a Youtube video? Sounds made for Youtube to me!
What part of "I'm just not sharing them" wasn't in English? And I said "half-naked" - I make them wear dress socks with garters, a bondage collar & a top hat.

Dear Eric,

Why are you so selfish?

Dear Eric,

In the past few years, I have walked around the playa holding a bungee ball by the plastic ball end. I'd walk up to a person with the elastic pointed toward them, and they'd grab the elastic end and instinctively pull on it in response to when I pulled it away from them. When I felt there was enough tension, I'd let go of the ball resulting in a painful whack against their knuckles. While I still find this funny and still laugh when I do it, I'm getting a hankering for something new. Do you know any fun new pranks to do with bungee balls?

Thank you, CM

Eric -

I have 2 best friends, 1 is gay and the other is a Jew (I know, I need new friends). I have been very successful for years now harassing them individually but am now stuck. My question to you is, how do I best combine gay and Jew jokes to be as offensive as possible?

This Ask Eric thing doesn't seem to be working out for me anymore. I'll have to go back to asking the entire eplaya community my questions.

Introduce them to me. It doesn't get more offensive than that.

Dear Eric,

Which actor would you choose to portray you in the cinematic version of "Dear Eric"? (if you won't do a show, we'll just have to hire someone to do a dramatic portrayal, pjs and all)

I think the problem is yours - "plonking" exists just for this type of situation.

Tilda Swinton. No one else has the cajones.

I said boys, not boyfriend. There is a difference.
Daniel Radcliffe would be acceptable, as would Henry Cavill, With them in the movie, I would, of course, portray myself.

As if a parody thread is a new thing on ePlaya. Though if it's a parody of this one, it must be pretty serious.
