Charlie covering his ears
Two annoying girls moved into the apartment above me.
I'm forced to hear every dumb thing they say.
These are my letters to them.


“This ‘State of the Union Address’ is totally taking over our TV! Does that mean no TMZ today?” How dare they not play YOUR news.

    Who wants to watch the address? I can’t really blame them. I’ll just read the paper the next day to catch up on the highlights.

  2. Amanda says:

    I have very mixed feelings of pity and embarrassment for these girls. :(
    Good for you for making light of the situation, Charlie.

  3. Alicia says:

    Just wanted to say that I just watched your Youtube videos for the first time, Charlie. You’ve got some mad dance skills.

  4. Charlie McDowell says:

    What cities do people live in???

  5. Lexi says:

    This is amazing. It has to be unhealthy for them to be this stupid!

  6. Maggie says:

    My mom gets so pissed off when Obama’s speeches force her shows to be postponed. And she’s like “THEY WERE BUILDING IT UP FOR THREE EPISODES IT WAS THE SEASON FINALE” Not gonna lie, it really, really pisses me off. It’s not like the episode will have to zap into oblivion I can’t stand it when people revolve their lives around tv.

  19. Melissa says:

  20. Sofa says:

  21. Kamella says:

    I’m waiting for Alicia’s poem about stalking people through DGAM.

    • Jess says:

      Just for the record, I would really prefer that I am not stalked. And I think that I am speaking for more than myself.

    • Jake says:

      There once was a girl named Kamella
      Who’s name kinda rhymed with unmbrella
      On GAM she talked
      of a poem that stalked
      I think I’ll go eat some Nutella

      Not to Alicia standards, I know. But I tried at least. and trying is half the battle. go joe.

      (Also, don’t blame her for not wanting stalkers. Just sayin…)

      • A Knight Who Says NI says:

        Jake’s Nutella was so tasty
        The girls forgot about TMZ,
        They put on their coats from Dior,
        And walked to the neighborhood store,
        But the Nutella was lacking!
        So they went about wracking
        Their brains, which were scant,
        So home, again they went,
        Took off their coats, turned on the telly,
        And went back to entertaining Charlie.

        I feel like we’re all taking away Alicia’s thunder with our poetry. But we should all write a giant, collective poem!

      • Kamella says:

        Very good, actually. Except you say my name kah-muh-luh not kah-mel-uh. Anyway, very funny.

    • Jake says:

      I had a feeling i was falling into that trap. My destroyers can obviously not handle pronunciation of that magnitude

  22. notforyou says:

    I live near Palo Alto.

    Most people have not heard of my actual city though

  40. Ellen says:

    The “not NYC” part of New York- because the city does not actually contain the entire population of the state.

    • Elizabeth says:

      I know what you mean, I’m right by NYC but not quite inside the city. I say NYC to out-of-staters because if you just say NY they get confused and you have to explain… xD

  54. Victoria says:

  55. Stephanie says:

    I live in this little place known as Anniston, AL. NE of Birmingham. Sounds vaguely familiar, but you can’t quite place it? Yeah, check your American History textbook. The part about bombing the Freedom Riders bus? Anniston. -_- I am SO not happy with this.

    But on the bright side, it could always be worse. I could be related to John Wilkes Boothe or something. But instead I’m related to Wyatt Earp! I’ll take it. :D

  56. RainbowLovechild says:

    I’ve also been a lurker for a good long while before I’ve worked up the nerve to post.:)

I just wanted to post today since I saw Charlie’s post about South Dakota, which I am sure was by accident. It’s ok though if you don’t like the state, not many people do….oh well, such is life

    • kayli says:

      i come from a dinky town south of Housten.
      is it just me, or have comment numbers really sprung up lately?
      i have mixed feelings about this, i like our little community.

    • Charlie McDowell says:

      Only respect for South Dakota!

  68. Kelsey says:

    For my religon exam we had to give 5 examples of folly. I used some quotes. Don’t worry, I gave you credit.

    • Kelsey says:

      Crap, I hope you didn’t take that as me quoting what YOU say. nononono. Them. But you, as in source.. but them.. as content? I pray that makes sense.

  69. Tormonstah says:
