<br>Len, Nora. My good, good friends. It's Jonathan Coulton here. I'm calling to talk to you about my song, [[Big Bad World One]]. First of all, I love that phrase cause' you don't know what it means. It's hard to say, and it doesn't make any sense. It's kind, it's kind, of a serious one, not a lot of funny stuff going on. Maybe a little rueful. Rueful? Merciful? What am I trying to say; I don't even know. Then, I'm talking to a machine. I can't. I just woke up. I don't know what's going on. Anyway, yeah, this is a kind of serious one, not a lot of funny things. But, you know, I. I have had many experiences where I am at a party, and I don't know anyone, and somehow I end up anchored to the food table. Standing by the cheese because it's like you can, sort of, keep busy there. And you don't have to talk to anybody, and nobody wants to talk to you, as they are just coming over there to dip their pita in the hummus and get out of there. And, you know, I am very sympathetic to the sad guy who doesn't have any friends and who doesn't know how to meet the ladies. Because at my core, that is me. Even though I am married, I guess I met one lady, right? Good enough. Anyway, yeah, you know, just like [[Drinking With You]], a good way to solve this problem at a party is to get drunk. It makes it a lot easier unless you're under 21. Bye.

It's hard to say, and it doesn't make any sense. It's kind, it's kind, of a serious one, not a lot of funny stuff going on. Maybe a little rueful. Rueful? Merciful? What am I trying to say? I don't even know. Then, I'm talking to a machine. I can't. I just woke up. I don't know what's going on. Anyway, yeah, this is a kind of serious one, not a lot of funny things. But, you know, I. I have had many experiences where I am at a party, and I don't know anyone, and somehow I end up anchored to the food table. Standing by the cheese because it's like you can, sort of, keep busy there. And you don't have to talk to anybody, and nobody wants to talk to you, as they are just coming over there to dip their pita in the hummus and get out of there. And, you know, I am very sympathetic to the sad guy who doesn't have any friends and who doesn't know how to meet the ladies. Because at my core, that is me. Even though I am married, I guess I met one lady, right? Good enough. Anyway, yeah, you know, just like Drinking With You, a good way to solve this problem at a party is to get drunk.
