An Evening with John Hodgman: No Hobo Matters?
For my lame friends who didn't care to join me for a free evening with John Hodgman and David Rees... I'm actually glad you didn't go! That's right. Last evening's performance/ reading/ Q&A via walkie talkie was not for you. You would have gone for the novelty of seeing the PC guy out of his tweed or to perhaps shake the hand of someone who has met Jon Stewart.
You would not understood the facts about Chicago being an imaginary city and would not have been informed of complete world knowledge by one so brilliant that he was able to write a sequel containing EVEN MORE KNOWLEDGE than his first tome. If that sentence does not make sense to you, you can rest assured that you would not have enjoyed yourself and would have been shunned most fervently by the crowd that is 'in the know'.
Actually, you would have loved it. But it's too late now! The best you can do is by the page-a-day calendar cum book and then purchase a dozen copies of The Areas of My Expertise to atone yourself.
