The Old People Bar

Well folks due to real life (again) this will be a short post this week. Next week tune in for a post on digital comics and the impact on the market, and of course your normal dick and fart jokes.

This week however I am going to talk about IHOP. Because I had to get to work at 4:00 am this morning and after the fires were put out, I decided to hit up the International House Of Pamcakes. As I was waiting for my grub I noticed something familiar happening around me. Old folks were coming in, looking around for faces they recognize, and razzing the wait staff like old pals. It struck me that these are the same behaviors of the bar fly in the wild. I have done this exact ritual more times than I can count and it just struck me as funny at the time. Now I am sure that this phenomenon happens any place were like minded people gather, but it just felt funny to me at the time....

Let us know in the comments if you have seen this ritual in places that you were not expecting it, because in my sleep deprived state I am finding this rather funny.


  1. Haha! That's awesome!
    Chris and I have recently taken up going to I-Bar on Saturday nights and have found comfort in a small cast of regulars: Crazy-hair-lady, Panthro, Brent Reznor and Final Fantasy Guy. If one or more of them are missing, the energy just doesn't feel right!

  2. I go through the same rituals at the VD clinic.
    Wait, what?
