Ways I Annoy The Shit Out Of My Girlfriend, Part 45,672...

I fake cry.

She can't stand it. Part of why I do it is that I'm so damn good at it. I would feel guilty if I deprived others of such talent. That Meryl Streep thinks she's hot shit, but I think you'll agree after watching this brief video that I'm gonna give her a run for her money at the next Oscars! For those of you who are curious, I received my formal training from Lee Strasberg (Hyman Roth of "Godfather II") at the prestigious Actor's Studio. Enjoy!



Production notes: Pay attention to how easily I am able to transition between various emotional states. The is what we in the business refer to as "range". It is a critical skill for any of my readers out there who may be aspiring actors. I encourage you not to feel too bad if my acting intimidates you and makes you feel like you'll never measure up. This took YEARS of practice - not to mention blood, sweat and tears - in order to perfect.

Keep at it. Hone your craft. You can do it!

It takes a big man to cry. And it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that crying man.

Brilliant! Bravo, bravo (polite golf-match applause)

You got extra points for having yesterday's post visible in the background.

Poor Megan.

You are an amazing force of nature and should be honored as such.

I look forward to studying this when I get home.

Your mother must be very, very proud. I'm sure her addiction to xanax has nothing to do with this whatsoever.

I hope that some day I can blog half as well as you. You always crack me up, you rascal.

I'm sure she's missing Virginia right about now.

What a joy you must be. : )




if she sticks around, even though you do things like this to annoy the SHIT out of her, she's a keeper, for life.

OK. The part about your "range" is funny as hell. Your sarcasm is a delightful sir. I want YOU to keep at it. This is tied with the eating popsicles video

Dr Zibbs said...

I just had to come back and read the last part again with it's demeaning tone. Excellente' (Excellent).

It was so real, I wondered why Megan didn't come in the room to console you.

Falwless said...

If Megan ever leaves you I'd better be the first to know. After, like, your mom or whatever.

Dear Jesus you make me laugh.

I think the first time I ever came to your site I was moseying around and found your YouTube vids, and saw the one where you're eating ribs. I pretty much fell off my chair laughing. Not because it was particularly funny, but it was so weird and random.

Anyway, nice work. I immediately started crackin' up when you started crying and didn't stop the whole video through.

I really liked the part at the end when it was done.

Micgar said...

Chris is that Method, or just...what the hell is it!?

Tenacious S said...

Possibly you need to get out more often. Or at least Megan does.

Dale said...

Is this meth acting or method?
