That Guy.

M: I want to show you these shark pants. Shark...pants?

A: What is it with... boys?

M: The critter pant thing, I will never in my life get it.

A: Never. Never ever. I suppose it's better than whales or crabs. Or lobsters. God, really? WHAT IS GOING ON.

M: It's so Andy Bernard, all of it!

A: I do love Andy Bernard. He is so That Guy.

M: SO That Guy. What's funny is That Guy can be from Connecticut just as easily as he can be from Alabama. But do they have That Guy in the Midwest? West Coast?

A: That Guy is definitely in the Midwest. On the West Coast he has bongs on his pants instead of the usual crustacean. Or maybe:

M: But see, then I think That Guy? Turns into This Guy:

A: All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.


  1. I don't know. I don't think the Midwest has that guy. We have a preponderance of THAT GUY down here. On game days it's especially egregious.

    Also: Dude! That was my skull!

  2. Yeah, but can we (coming from a demographic -- style bloggers -- that gets excited about bird-print and cat-print dresses) really get harsh on a guy for wanting to wear shark print pants? How different is it?

  3. Absolutely. But I am not one to get excited about bird or cat-print dresses, so perhaps I'm in the minority. (I do kind of like the skull-print pants, though.)
