had a great time at the signing, jimmy and kenny were great! One asshole (old fuck with his kids yelling about kiddie porn and whatnot) who was the only one yelling in the store was rooooooing things, a bunch of us was hoping he'd fall down the escalator and break his jaw or crush his larynx.

was also hoping to see NFP whoring his swag so i could buy some.

I'm in Detroit, but I have a friend in DC. I called him today and pulled in a favor. He picked me up Jimmy's book and had it signed. After he got home he called me and asked me why there were fat drunk people there meowing. I loffed and loffed. Props to my buddy Moses.

Well Sir, I guess you were not paying attention as I was NOT the only one yelling. Hear any Meows??? Sorry I Roooooooooooooned it for ya. I was UBER Excited to see the guy who makes me laugh hysterically, and My Wife and Kids wanted to see Jimmy in Real Life instead of the 2 posters I have of him, btw I'm 5' 10" 197 lbs. Pretty far from FAT. The ASSHOLE part is, However, Debatable. You're a NOOGE sir. Don't like Fat Drunk guys Yelling shit about Kiddie Porn and Whatnot!??! You won't have any fun at Bristow or any other O&A Event if thats the case. Save your money DOUCHEBAG. I'll be at Bristow. The guy with the pos green Jeep pickup with a WOW Tailgate smiling, yelling shit when I see my heros, drinking (with any luck) and having a BLAST with fellow O&A Fans.
Good Day to you Sir.................

I was there. Was a good time. Great turnout, as I think I was talking to somebody about how I'm always surprised at good turnouts for O&A things in DC. Never strikes me as a place the boys are big. Pleasant surprise, I suppose.

Not only did I get Jim to sign my book, I picked up a trashy romance novel while waiting in line, which got an "oooooh" and a laugh out of Jim before he signed it. There's some good writing in there, and the people standing around me in line who heard me do a staged reading can attest to that.

Nothing wrong with having a good time but when everyone in line is like shut the fuck up then you know it's just a tad bit too much. I am a long time fan of the show, have gone to ton of events going back to the 1st O&A Softball game in the Newark Bears Stadium. Everyone was yelling shit there which is fine..but like I said....I'd say like 90% of the people I heard say you were just fucking obnoxious trying to be funny when you weren't. Again, I have nothing wrong with having a good time and all...but when you're in a bookstore with say 100+ some odd people maybe its not the right venue for that kind of behavior. Save it for the Travelling virus or a place where it is all pests and not a bunch a little kids (we were lined up along a children's section to get our books signed). BTW I never said anything about you being fat or any physical descriptors. There were other people there with their kids (who were pests) who weren't acting out, so if possibly you feel like you are the person I wrote about, most of the people who were there will know who I am talking about, if you aren't I apologize if you feel it is directed at you. As for being a NOOGE, far from being a geek or one who doesn't like to have a good time, I've been to ton of events where I've had tons of fun and everyone laughed and had a good time.

My wife went for me. She picked up a signed copy of the book for me and took a picture of him with her service dog :) She was very excited bout it. Too bad I had to work sounded like it was a good time. I would post the picture but cant upload attachments just yet. Someone PM me if they want to help get the picture on here.

That guy really was annoying, one gentleman suggested that he should "Die in a fire". Unfortunately he hasn't.

one thing I do wanna say is that both Jimmy and Kenny were great guys. It was my first time meeting both since I do not get back home often to get to a walkover or anything. I got pictures with both and Kenny even signed my book!

He does have his own paragraph on the Acknowledgments page.


The book signing seemed disorganized to me. Staff on the first floor were telling people to go the third, staff on the third floor was sending them back downstairs. There weren't signs telling people where to go, but it was easy to spot a Pest and follow him.
They had it set up like a reading, maybe 30 chairs in the audience and a podium with a microphone. The Barnes and Noble lady read the brief history of Norton, and lil' Jimmy did a very entertaining scowl until the woman turned around, then he'd smile that award winning (boy with the sweetst smile) smile until she went back to reading aloud. Then he'd scowl again. Jim Norton spoke briefly, Editorick posted the video.

Then everyone got up to form a line for the book signing, and there was no order to it. People that had shown up very early ended up in the middle of the line, and a lot of those that came early to sit up front got trapped in the chairs and got stuck at the back of the line. It wasn't fair but nobody caused a scene, everyone got to meet Mr. Norton eventually.

WJFK barely broadcasts O+A, I think that's why they suspect the audience is so small. I guess all most locals are listening on XM or um, other ways. There were a lot of people at the book signing, someone who was at the end of the line might know how long things went; thanks to the forming-a-line confusion I had my book signed and was out of there by 8.

Thank you for coming to DC Lil' Jimmy!

No. I never complained about the line thing, I was one of the assholes who cut in front of people and didn't have to wait long to meet Lil' Jimmy.

No offense to you sir, but standing around Jimmy AFTER you got your book signed and walking around the line meowing and screaming other show lines reeks of trying to hard to get noticed. You really were a douche.

Had a great time, got my book signed and of course got my rod on courtesy of Standby's saucy book.

Actually I was more amazed that no matter what page you turned to some variety of sex was taking place.

Did you take the book home, fill up the bath tub, light some scented candles, and read your favorite passage while playing with your vagina.

Well I have to agree with all you folks.
"I made an ASSSSSSS of MYSELF..."

I don't get the priveledge to see Jimmy up close like that, 1st time really, been listening to the boys since older JFK days and that night I was an Over the Top, Overly eager and the typical loud douche that can't control himself. On top of that the Raman noodle lunch didn't help things.
Like my wife mumbled to me, "Your Scaring the Straights honey".

I'm taking this as learning experience. I apologize to you all.
