    If this show isn’t a “Friend of Bill” is it by definition an enemy of Bill.

    Larry love you sir, but I have to make a correction to a positive little rant about the postal service. They are not doing well at all. That a stamp is a couple cents is not really the issue, but the fact is the USPS is a terrible business model that runs on taxpayer money and is leaking our money all over the place is.
    The reason they can charge a couple cents is because we are subsidizing the rest. It does not actually take a couple cents to mail that letter, it is just that all the cost associated with shipping that letter comes out of our pockets and therefore since the government can continually seize money from us to shore up their programs the show goes on. The government has a monopoly on this and like everything the government does they are inefficient and over paid.

      I have a friend who almost got a part-time job sorting mail at our local post office. She would’ve started at $24/hour, to sort mail. A task that anyone with half a brain could do. Does anyone else think this is ridiculous? If the post office were privatized, there’s no way in hell that job would pay $24/hour.
      “By the way” that’s OUR tax dollars at work.

    With how little physical mail we really need anymore I’d be in favor of privatizing it and letting FedEx (or someone similar) run the show. If I’m ever sending a package (ie anything over a pound) I always use fedex. It’s faster and many times cheaper! then the postal service. On the rare occasion that I need to send a piece of paper somewhere, I’m fine with paying a few dollars instead of a few cents if it means I get to see the destruction of another bloated inefficient government bureaucracy!

    Did I miss the cut on becoming a member of the drinking society? Can I still become a member?

    Help me Larry, you’re my only hope!

    When I was a senior in college, a guy in the apartment below us called us down so we could watch him feed his ball python. He was so proud watching that mouse’s tail disappear down the hatch. My roommate, who was a dead-ringer for Rick Moranis deadpanned, “Dude, if you have a snake as a ‘pet’, you need to seriously re-examine your life.”

    To his credit, the guy never brought the snake to the bar. Though, that was probably because given the chance, the snake would have devoured the rodent-like toupée he wore. True story.

    Thanks for giving the Post Office props. Last week our mail man or woman, not sure on gender, was still delivering mail at 7 o’clock at night in a blizzard.

      Nice to see someone saying something nice about my former employer. I have to say that I mailed something to someone in the late afternoon and he got it (in prison) before 7 or 8am the next day. I was impressed. That’s the power of the plus 4 zip code.

    I’ve been yapping about how great the Post Office is for years – mostly to people who think I’m a lack-wit – so it’s nice to be validated by the great Mr. Miller.

    Today I sent my SASE to join the Larry Miller Drinking Society. I like Larry Miller and I like drinking. If they could somehow factor in pizza and naked women, life would be really good.

    I have to agree with the positive Post Office comments. I’ve never had a problem with them.

    I’m one of those rare breeds who have never been drunk in their life. Never had more than a sip of alcohol, and I’m 33. I grew up in a household with an alcoholic, so that’s why I have never had a desire to drink.

    Anyway, I’m a big fan of the podcast. I’ve been looking for a way to support the podcast. I’ve been thinking about signing up for Gamefly for a long time, and once I heard Larry read the spot, I knew I had to. I’ll be clicking the banner and signing up. Keep up the good work Larry.

    I still have nightmares about seeing Larry’s head on a plate at the old Studio 54 in Manhattan on a Halloween night in 1980 (or ’81).

    Are there any official drinking games to play while listening to the show? Maybe…every time Larry says, “By the way” someone takes a drink. Just a thought.
