As my name is Al, for the past 20 years I’ve been searching for a friend named Betty with whom I could sing the Paul Simon song “You Can Call Me Al.” Imagine how much fun we could have singing along with the lyrics and pointing at each other when our names are mentioned! We could sing it together on road trips with the windows down, at home with our stereos cracked loud, we can smile at each other knowingly when it’s played in gas stations and grocery stores and text each other when we’re apart and it comes on the radio. I’m especially looking forward to acting out our own version of the classic Paul Simon Chevy Chase music video. We can post it on Youtube! Just to be clear, I’m not really looking for a bodyguard (that’s a lyric from the song haha!) just a friend named Betty. If you want we could maybe sing other Paul Simon songs at some point but I’d really rather we stick with our namesakes You Can Call Me Al. Of course I want proof your name is really Betty so when we meet I’ll need to see a state issued photo ID with that name. I’ll also accept Elizabeth, Roberta or Beatrix. Please write back soon I can’t wait to hang out Sincerely -Your long lost pal!!! •it’s NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests PostingID: 1802444273

LOST: Tripod in a sewer
Date: 2010-02-08, 9:00PM EST
Last night, I dropped my tripod in a fast flowing sewer, and it got carried away into the shitty abyss. If you’re an Ashbridges Bay sewage treatment plant worker, and you find a black Manfrotto 752B ball head tripod, it’s mine, and I miss it.
Thanks for your time.
