My FUNNY 9/11 tribute post.

I wanted to avoid all the sappiness that comes along with 9/11 tributes. I wrote enough in 2002... go digging if you want it.

So, like many of you, I avoided all of the memorials like a plague.

But, I just remembered something... so this I would like to share.

My favorite thing to do involving the World Trade Center towers was include them in tours for out of town guests. I would bring them to the towers... have them go ooooooh and aaaahhhhh.

Then I'd instruct them to walk up to the tower. Right up close so that their nose would be practically touching the exterior. Then, I would have them look up to try to see the roof.

Invariably, they would suddenly find themselves on their asses. Near perfect results. Hee!

OK, so I was a bit of an asshole to my college friends. :-)

Will that work with the Empire State Building also?

You know, I never tried? The joy of the trade center was that I always did this during the weekends. Thus, less people around to see my friend fall. I'm not all sadistic. :-)

Yeah, the ESB is always crowded as fuck.

Also lacks the nice big plaza in front of it. Fall on your ass in front of the ESB and you might well end up lying in the middle of 5th avenue.

If you do, let me know; I think that would be the best possible commentary.

Maybe we could make a trend out of it, like spinning the Astor Place Cube.

Sweetheart, you're still a bit of an asshole, which is why you're so well loved. ;)
