Since we’re always looking for new ways to kill twenty minutes of our work days staring at some newly discovered piece of internet inanity, I thought I’d hook you up with TextsFromLastNight.com.
It’s not particularly original, and probably functions similarly to a Twitter feed (I wouldn’t know – my Twitter boycott remains intact). Some of them are falsified, certainly, but some of them are all-too-familiar, and I am no stranger to the perils of late-night texting.
The basic idea is that people submit parts of text message conversations to the site, and the site owners explain their goal: “the funniest texts are those we can all relate to… without the context of the conversation.” I agree, and tend to save the best/most-ill-advised texts from my friends on my own phone for blackmailing entertainment purposes, so I’m happy to read other people’s, such as:
(919): so I was just driving high and I stopped to let a pinecone cross the road because I thought it was a hedgehog.
(850): Are they still out there making out on the couch? How can we get them to leave?
(850): I ‘m gonna go stand naked in the kitchen with a knife
(330): I don’t know where I am but the food in the fridge is awesome.
(502): I just got really nervous and swallowed all of my birth control
(201): she offered me iced tea and went to go change.then her dad came in the door.i thought i was on how to catch a predator.
Like, seriously? If I was a situational comedy writer I would be mining this site for gold. Oh, yeah: Leave your favorites in the comments. ;)
