Why Wouldn't I?

I just received an e-mail from Media Guy that included a recent exchange between him and Miflohny. It's so funny I'm waiting to pee until after I post it because I want you guys to have the laugh ASAP. This decision may be detrimental for my pants.

Media Guy: "KISS is canceling a concert in Serbia due to death threats."

Miflohny: "WHAT?!?"

MG: "KISS is canceling a concert in Serbia due to death threats."

Miflohny: "Why would Kizz be doing a concert in Serbia?" [ed. note: I especially like that she's focused on why I'd be doing a concert in Serbia not why anyone might threaten to kill me. Apparently that part is entirely plausible.]

MG: "Well, they travel around the world. Lots of rock bands do that."

Miflohny: "Rock bands? What?!?"

MG: "Yeah, the rock band? KISS?"

Miflohny: "Oh, KISS. I thought you meant KIZZ."

MG: "I don't think she's going to Serbia either."

I am not, sadly, going to Serbia. I could, though! I could do a rock concert in Serbia. I could go anywhere I want. Heck, if I time it right and other people experience the same "thoughtyousaid" that Miflohny did I might pack the house. You have no idea how many people end up at my little blog by googling "kizz" because they misread the rock band's font. I get at least 3 a day. I always feel bad for disappointing them.

Wow, I just realized that simply by posting this I'm going to raise that 3 per day exponentially.

Hey, are any of you in Serbia? If I come over there and do a rock concert will you come?

Also, can I sleep on your couch?


  1. That is truly a gift conversation!
    I would like to go there someday. Croatia and Romania...
    pretty lands by the sea.

  2. When I was in grade school, I went to a friend's birthday party and her older brother and his friends did a Kiss concert (full on make-up & costume) for us on the roof of their house. The party girls sat in the backyard. It was awesome. For weeks after that, I wanted a Kiss belt that my mother refused to buy.
    If we can't get you to Serbia, pretty sure I can hook up with a rooftop in Queens. Let me know.

  3. Hilarious! I was a member of the KISS Army once upon a lifetime ago...

    Media Guy's telling of the conversation is not completely accurate, but the idea is the same, and I laughed just as hard at both versions. No sane person would want to kill you - not plausible at all - and Serbia - I would think I would have HEARD about a concert there before hearing about its cancellation! Nothing about the conversations was making sense!!! It was like Media Guy had just lost his mind, or I was losing mine! I knew I was mis-hearing something, but I couldn't figure out what he was trying to say!

  5. It is a great gift isn't it? I loved hearing it!

    Chrome, I think Queens is an awesome place to start, especially if we can do it on a rooftop.

    Kath, you are always on the cutting edge.

    Miflohny, EXACTLY, I'm sure that you would have heard SOMETHING if I'd been planning to hit Serbia with my rock and roll stylings. Surely it would have at least COME up in the three hours we hung out last weekend, right? :)
