Michael Ian Black,
If you've seen The Baxter, you know there is a scene at a bar in which Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux play a strange game which has two steps: a rhythmic, nonsensical prelude (tapping elbows on the table, pinching one's nose, etc.) followed by a non-sequiturial comment uttered in a cartoon voice. It is hysterical and I've pitched it to my friends who'll play along after a few drinks. My question is, Has anyone ever heard of this game before or is it something made up for the movie? Also, Is it a game (If so, what are its rules?) or is it merely a way to pass the time, like twiddling thumbs? I've been drinking in bars now for fifteen years. Bars in New Orleans. Bars in San Francisco. Bars in New York. Bars in every one of our big, fat American cities and I have never come across it. Or if I have, I was too drunk to remember. If you have news of this game, please pass it on.
