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.


“Umm, Bradley Cooper is not the Sexiest Man Alive. What about Gos, Effy, Chan, Laut, and Gylly?” Oh no, I totally understood that.

    Charlie, if you’re reading this, please respond with an obsure animal noise, followed by your Grandma’s first name.

      UrgyUrgyUrgy (a rare animal from Uruguay) Edna.

      • Michaela says:

        Weird, I was born in Uruguay and don’t hear it mentioned much but then again I do live in very “diverse” virginia. On another note never heard of such an animal, but am always quite entertained by your blog :)!

  3. DDD says:

    thankfully, i only know 2 of the 5 they mentioned.

  4. Charlie McDowell says:

    Many people on Twitter are trying to figure them out. Can anyone get them all right?

  5. Adam says:

    Should I be proud or ashamed that I know 3 of these?

  6. Chris says:

    My best guesses would be Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal.

  7. Hillary says:

    Ryan Gosling, Zach Efron, Taylor Lautner, and Jake Gyllenhal, but who the fonk is chan???

  8. anne says:

    Chan I’m pretty sure is Channing Tatum?

  9. Sarah says:

    Only one I got was Taylor Lautner.

  10. pottergirl94 says:

    No Bradley Cooper isn’t the sexiest man alive but he is pretty hot just saying

  11. Lena says:

    Considering these nicknames, Charlie would probably be CharChar, or even…I don’t know…Charazard??!!
    Unless, of course, they don’t know wth he is.

  12. Jack says:

    Jackie Chan?

  13. Nemo says:

    darnit i missed effy. then again, i don’t consider zack efron to be particularly hot sooo..

  14. Sam says:

    Wow, those are some pretty sexy men though. My favorites are Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum. :)

  15. Kaitlyn says:

    I got Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, and Taylor Lautner but Gylly is throwing me.

  16. ILoveRoryWilliams says:

    effy? EVERYONE knows that it is Zefron

  17. Beth says:

    I’m so proud of myself for not having the slightest idea what that meant. =D

  18. Lauren.0 says:

    Ryan Gosling, Zac Effron, Channing Tatum, Taylor Lautner, and Jake Gyllenhaal. Though, they are forgetting Joesph Gordon Levitt.

    • Belle says:

      Ugh I totally agree! I’ve been in love with Joseph Gordon Levitt since the 10 Things I Hate About You!

    Son of a…..After I gave it some thought I face palmed. I understod it too. AND where is Ryan Reynolds? And SYNYSTER GATES??? Syn Gates is the most beautiful man I have ever seen. But I can’t expect these girls to be acquainted with the wonderful world of first-rate guitarists.

  22. Anonymous says:

  23. Jillian says:

    I knew Gos, Laut, and Gylly for sure. I needed help with Effy and Chan. Thanks to everyone else who commented and could fill in those blanks for me.

  24. Elaine says:

    I am pretty sure Anderson Cooper needs to be on this list, as of yesterday.

  25. Niki says:

    Only knew two… the one I highly dislike and the one I highly like, imagine that…

  26. Alex says:

    I’m actually not surprised that you understood all that, Charlie!

  27. Marley says:

    All I have to say is thank goodness that they didn’t try and put freaking robert patterson.?. on the list. :-P too many people I know try it. (ps I didn’t understand either)

    I was wondering, why the fuck isn’t an Avett on here, but then I remembered who we were dealing with. The GAC don’t listen to amazing music, I’m sure. But, they are missing out on Seth and Scott. Mmm.

  30. pb says:

    glad i only knew half of those. the only effy i know was a character on the australian sitcom acropolis now back in the early 90s.

  31. Jess says:

    James McAvoy.

  32. elizabeth says:

    I actually knew all of them. Not sure how to feel about that…

  33. Jenn says:

    I actually feel like an idiot that I knew none of those. God bless comments. :)

    I can’t believe that one of our greatest and most beautiful (English) actors isn’t on there – EDDIE REDMAYNE ( actually I can believe it…)

  37. Daily Post…
