This is a classic from an email I sent out to my ball team last summer recapping drinks the night before. It was originally titled"Why ball drinks sometimes make me want to stab myself". The sad thing is, it's totally true....and we were not drunk...
(I, after one of my many trips to the bathroom, enter mid-conversation)
"...wasn't it Craig T. Nelson?..."
"Ok, now let's do 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon to Craig T. Nelson"
(no one can do it)
"Ok, let's try....Will Smith"
"No, Mike Myers!"
(2 HOURS LATER)
"...so then Tom Cruise was in Mission Impossible III with Lawrence Fishburn who was in Mystic River WITH KEVIN BACON!!!
(everyone rejoices much to the delight of the rest of the pub)
"So...was that Will Smith or Mike Myers?"
"Guys...I think we just did 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon to Kevin Bacon."
