I have a dumb guy question


Ten years ago I worked with a famous LSU Football Player. We happened to go to New Orleans on a business trip once to call on Tony Chachere. Tony and my coworker were big buddies and it was a pretty big deal for me and then I found out that he was just a nice guy and not impressive at all.

Anyhow, we were in the bar at the Dauphine Orleans having a drink before we headed out for Mr. B's and my coworker asked for a ------- cup for the rest of his drink - to take it with him on our two block walk to Mr. B's.

Why can't I remember the word LA people use for a To-Go cup?



Someone help me please. TIA.

What does the first paragraph have to do with your question?

Long story for a question about a go cup.

Nice guys aren't impressive? What does that mean?

It's called a setup I guess. I was thinking about my friend (who died) and realized I can't remember what he called a to-go cup.

An old guy problem I seem to be having more and more frequently lately.

It means that I know nice people and impressive people. Not all of the impressive people I have met were nice.

And, Tony was nice but not impressive?

I assume this was Tony Jr..
Tony Sr. passed nearly 20 Years ago.
Tony Sr. was a super nice guy.

After your third stroke, you just call them by the proper term, brainfarts.

By unimpressive, you mean he was a simpleton? Or that he was a Guy Fieri type of personality who is all hype but without near the food knowledge his reputation suggests?

Not impressed at all with Guy Fieri.

No, he was not a simpleton.

He was just a nice guy.

Could have been 20 years ago. I'm not sure Mr. B's was there 20 years back.
