"100 Different Beers on the wall - and the bartenders know their brews. Live blues on Saturday nights. Pricing is flexible, too! Everything from a $2.00 Pabst to a $9.00 Raspberry Lambic and everything between. Like Bloody Marys? Barb & Desiree have a great recipe - best kept secret in town!! "
Having only ever gotten one shoutout in my life (thanks, piratical L.A. monkeys!), I'm turning my consistent shoutout rejection into a little game. If I make a shoutout demand, and the result is: Total shoutout shutout -- one point. Shoutout given to kit, no Captain -- two points. Shoutout given to kit and pete, no Captain -- three points. Pictagram shoutout to kit, pete, and quid -- four points. Shoutout to a non-monkey, and no Captain -- five points. The more points I get, the more I win. It's all about making me less of a loser. Do me proud.
Dude, just go to Cleveland. It's only four hours...five if you actually drive a Renault.
Sorry.. could you explain again about this 'shout-out business', I mean how does it actually work?
1. Send email to meet-up attendees, with desired mofi name and message, as well as body part it is to be written in 2. Paypal $$$ to member's account (table of current rates available upon request) 3. Enjoy your genuine MonkeyFilter shout-out!
(if you want photographic evidence of it, a surcharge of 25% is needed)

I've never been to Cleveland. I expect photos to show me what I'm missing!
Blank photos not acceptable.
I sent Chy a bunch of money - and not one shout out!
That I'm aware of.
And that one time on the roof totally doesn't count
I had a dream two nights ago that I was at Chy's house. The wife was there. We accidentally woke him up, but he was surprisingly nice about it. He was very sleepy, and possibly stoned. He had a farm with a cool barn. His wife did not wear pants through the entire dream. True story.
It occurs to me that it might be a blessing if this new job forces to spend less time away from MoFi. I mean, that's time I could be spending as a tool for the man.
Our big, hairy tool!
*sneezes, sweeps up blanket of fur*
Advice from a previous Meetup attendee: Don't MARCH in Cleveland. SIT DOWN AND TALK AND DRINK in Cleveland. Much more fun. And why do we keep calling non-verbal messages "shout-outs"? I'd prefer to call them BILLBOARDS. But that's just me. Anyway, to better prepare for your silent shout-outs, always be sure to bring (1) a pen that can write on bar napkins without (a) tearing them or (b) leaving large ugly ink blobs (2) a pen for writing on human flesh that IS NOT PERMANENT and is visible on various flesh tones (although, traditionally, most meet-up attendees are pasty white folk) and (3) alternate writing media: memo pads, index cards, post-it notes, blank checks, casts, tablet PCs, large balls, CLEAN underpants (white or pastel, NO patterned boxers), brassieres (white or pastel, NO lace), the Beatles' White Album, Colin Mocherie's head.
Such valuable shoutout tips, wendell! Just for that, you should get a really nice one from all of the Cleveland monkeys.
I think this is the closest meetup to meredithealand yet! Alas, I can't go. It being a school night and all, I have to get up early to go to work the following day. However, have lots of fun and drink one (or five) for me!
I should probably state that Cleveland is a 2.5 hour drive away.... That's why I'm wimping out on the whole "school night" thingum. Have fun!
