One night, several years ago, I heard two of the single greatest sentences to ever come out of other human beings mouths.
Can I get a witness? Song 88.
On this particular evening, I went to see Lez Zeppelin with a friend at the Cubby Bear. Say what? Exactly.
Honestly I don’t really think their name is meant to be anything like a statement, it’s just a funny name.
Not as funny though as Led Zeppelin II. That still cracks me up.
Anyway, I didn’t really think about where we were going until we got there. Smack dab in the middle of Lakeview, steps away from Wrigley Field, to see an all girl Led Zeppelin cover band. Yup, this night had awesome written a l l o v e r it.
When we got there the show room wasn’t open yet so we went to the bar to get some drinks. Everyone in the place had obviously been there for a while watching sports of some kind. We step up to the bar to order beers and this dude, in a classic Chicago accent takes one look at us and says:
“You lesbians here to see the lesbians?”
Later that night, while these girls killed it, and I mean that sincerely (this was before they changed their whole lineup and became kind of a joke about themselves) my friend looks at me and says:
“If there was a Jimmy Page Porno Channel I would just turn to it and wear myself out.”
See ya in hell frat dude. Touche.
