Oh, man, I freaked out when I saw the one with the phone number. Then I thought, "he wouldn't." So, I called. Very funny.

MsV

Since you hate texting, I put one of these on Twitter.

"Time will eventually show that Vanilli was the more talented of the two."

Funny as hell...

~@MsV1959 if you're a twitter man...

Funniest text story I've heard? My girlfriend Candace sent a text FROM HER BOYFRIENDS PHONE (this is key to the story)to her friend Becky asking her when they were going to meet for a coffee. They chatted back and forth a few times and left it at that.

A few days later Becky texts back thinking it's Candace saying, "OMG. I ate the nastiest taco and I'm stuck at work have to take the biggest SHIT so bad!"

Good thing James had a good sense of humor and wrote back, "Let er rip!"

Once she got wind of who read her text message she was MORTIFIED.

Julie Kang

Admit it: half of these texts came from Tiger Woods! You homewrecker! Ambien instead of Cialis indeed. ;)

Issa

I adore texting. I've never been a fan of talking on the phone, so it's perfect for me.

I don't have any good ones on my phone right now. Just yesterday deleted three weeks worth. None were as funny as yours. That I know for sure.

A

These sound like texts between you and Kyle. You two are hilarious!

ray lee

I read this thread (http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3150636) about six months ago. Basically, you text a female friend "When can I tap that?" and see what her answer is.

I texted a bunch of female friends and it's HILARIOUS.

I texted my gay friend that question and his response was: "Whenever you want baby"

-ray leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Beta Dad

I have sent and received many texts with descriptions and/or pictures of dirty diapers. Sometimes funny. Sometimes cute. Sometimes frightening. I guess it's the new parent's alternative to "sexting."

SciFiDad

Dude, two posts in two days? Is this a cry for help or something?

Awesome texts, to be sure, though.

anonymous

MetroDad - I'm mostly a lurker but your blog posts bring mass amounts of hilarity into my work day. You should check out www.textsfromlastnight.com. Immature? Yes. Hilarious? Incredibly so.

JYN

My most random text is in the outbox:
Br 8.6 SV 9.3 Clrhphs 2 tu nice. Stk dis.
But any parent of a gymnast will easily decipher it.

joan

No random texts for me. Unfortunately, I have to text with my job. Communicating with my boss, who is 3000 miles away. Maybe that's a good thing. :)

JustLinda

I want to steal a few of those and take full credit. You don't mind, do you? LOL

(I only contemplate crimes...I wouldn't DO them.)

ParentopiaDevra

The most random one I got was "Skinny Cow Icecream Sandwiches are on sale at Target, I'm there now." and I had no idea who had sent the text because their number wasn't in my address book.

Strangest one I've ever sent- "Why are the Asian folk purchasing Spam by the caseload at Costco?" I was shopping pre-winter storm and I was culturally clueless and had to ask a friend. She, Chinese, had no explanation.

ryan

Most random:

"My Dad took my sister to fucking Mexico. I couldn't go because that asshole bought me a poodle."

sarah

your friends are kind of fucking hilarious.

(am i allowed to say "fucking" here? no? oops. sorry)

Captain Dumbass

Two posts in a week? Your friends are awesome.

landismom

Huh, I just checked my phone, and apparently I have texts saved from as far back as August 2008. That one says, "wsj just left he is going 2 do another story in a few weeks :)"

deborah

long time reader, first time poster. you are so damn funny. i have been put on hospital bedrest (likely for weeks which would be the best outcome considering i'm 28 weeks with twins) which for me is true torture but your two posts in one week made it a little more bearable!

Papa Bradstein

With friends like that, who needs sitcoms?

Adrienne

Two blog posts from you in one week is like heaven. Thanks for cheering me up. You have no idea how much I needed it. Bless you!

stella

Wandering Chopsticks

My most random text was from a friend who said he was at the airport and saw someone who looked like me, circa 1993 with my cheeks.

Funniest was from my little sister who texted me to ask what vegetables she likes, besides broccoli, that she can stir-fry. :P I texted back and told her she also likes bean sprouts, bok choy, and spinach. I turned it into a recipe post on my blog using all her favorite ingredients. :)

wn

"A girl tried to kiss me last night, I told her she had to stop because i wasn't a lesbian yet"

Kaz

On my work PDA, I regularly get spanish text messages. At first, I thought I had a secret admirer. When I asked someone over in International Production what it was, he said they were just inspiration messages I somehow got subscribed to.

Bummer. No secret admirer for me :(

 Muskrat

I'm not a big texter, but I do tend to send a few obnoxious ones when I'm out drinking. Like:

"I'm on Bourbon Street right now--can neither confirm nor deny that I showed my balls for a feather boa"

or

"Just sang a Wham! cover at a gay bar karaoke night. These people love me!"

Mike

My wife had my phone and got a text that said can't wait to meet u for dinner. It was a wrong number of course. People call a wrong number often but don't usually text to one. Oh the drama this could have caused but she believed me.

MC

hilarious! this reminds me of me and my friend. we're always sending each other random texts, mostly about our trips on the bus.

J.M. Cook

Twice in one week? Be still my heart! Still laughing at the Cialis post while I close down my computer... Thanks, I can tell it's gonna be a great weekend!

J.P. Fischer

"Just walked into Ralphs, 3 blnd newbs strayt checkin me out, 1 mouths to others, 'sooo hot.' still got it, baby!"

rs gold

Our destiny offers not the cup of despair, but the chalice of opportunity. So let us seize it, not in fear, but in gladness.

edathomedad

I only really text with my wife. She sent me one text on her train ride back from work. "Full train, next to lg women, her leg is touching mine, oh god my leg is moist, must take shower when I get home."

Caddy

Some dude texted me the fight was on tomorrow. It was from a number I didn't know so I didn't respond I thought he was in some gang.

The next day he texted me he was outside the cockfighting arena and was wondering where I was. I just kept ignoring him. I think he eventually figured out it wasn't me he was suppose to be texting.

enygma

Awesome. Unfortunately, none of the texts I've sent or received are of this caliber. I need to try harder.

fs

"We know that now divide and handbags conquer strategy," White said. "We understand the truth of the distraction tactics. We understand that no Texan leather handbags the right to request the values Guccl Bag of the monopoly of Texas. This time, we put forward this country forward." dfsssfdaaadft

Gray Matter

Glad you asked. Just last night:

"I just landed in Miami to direct a commercial with the Kardashian sisters. How did I get here?"

Ollie

You should check out "Texts From Last Night" (http://www.textsfromlastnight.com). That can be hours of entertainment.

LogicalMama

One from me: "I can make my belly button look like my butt."

One from a friend intending to text her husband but it came to me instead: "OMG, where ARE you?! I am so nervous about who Dalton's teacher is going to be, I've been in the bathroom ALL DAY with u know what! Come home soon so we can go. Luv u, luv u, luv u!!!"

dsd

somebody explain the one with the phone number ? not from the states so HIGHLY unwilling to call, but also HIGHLY curious. somebody anybody ?

Kila

Thanks for the laughs!

My oldest son texted me, "Come pick me up and hurry. LAME PARTY." Where was he? A private party--to the max--something most folks never experience--at Disney World!! LOL Me thinks there is no pleasing him.

Nikki

Most of the time I just get texts from my husband asking me to take pictures of my boobs.

Ondelyn Banks

I get texted VERY rarely. My only slightly funny random text was: "I'm bringing the amoxicillin. Hope it wasn't my fault."

The white kids berzerking in the checkout?
Re yours above:
Has to be sugar, man. I know NO Koreans that like sugary candies.... Now that wouldn't mean their KIDS wouldn't like it, they just won't buy it for them.

The Thanksgiving one gave me .... pause... uhhhhhhh seriously...

I am telling my husband the friend/know too much one. For sure.

Cindy

Random at 2 a.m. as I'm sleeping next to my husband and my 2 little girls in their rooms....

"It's 2 a.m. where the fuck are you???? Jack Daniels is waiting to shove his head down your throat and release something to make you go boom boom so get your ass over here NOW!!!!"

Never found out who it was, but sure am sorry I missed that party!!

Eun Jung

I have a ton but my current favorite texts are a conversation I had with my best friend over text:

Me: "The crazy cousin just got a haircut. He looks like Moe from the 3 Stooges. Vietnamese style."

Friend: "Wow, haven't heard about him in awhile."

Me: "We found out that he's been going to Bingo at nights at the local senior center. Shocking, huh?"

Friend: "Prolly to rob them in the parking lot"

Me: "LOL!"

Friend: "BINGO mothaf*%#a!!!!"

casey

"that was from an onion article, it's not reality"

Nellie

Co-worker like to go to the grocery store at lunch to get their BBQ chicken ... last txt "Fuck, that was good meat candy ...", I've since booked him in for rehab.

mom-101

Mostly the texts I get are "did you pick up bread?" or "has the dog been out yet?"

When two writers get together over texting, magic happens I tell ya.

Ayesha

I work with a search firm and we work on senior hires within the banking domain, but this one got me baffled no end

Position JPMCVPBCP&DM (huh!!!)

Turned out to be VP Business Continuity Planning & Disaster Mgt. By the time you decipher that its a catastrophe!

Jennifer

"I'm not going to let you in unless you bring organic ketchup."

"call me in 12 minutes."

"ooga booga."

Your friends are a riot.

Eun

My brother enjoys texting the most random things:

What's a jabberwocky? They keep saying it in Alice in the Wonderland.

Your dog just looked me dead in the eye and then shit on the carpet.

WTF? A 10oz. bottle of A1 Sauce is 5 bucks?

Can you get a rash if your skin is too dry?

No bap. No Spam. Markets closed.
