Exton Howard Johnson Circa 1980. Throw Up Prank.

There used to be a Howard Johnson Restaurant in Exton PA years ago. My friend Jim was a dishwasher there in 9th grade. Here's the conversation we had one time:

Me: So how do you like working at HoJo's?

Jim: It sucks. I was working today and the manager said, "Someone threw up. Go clean it up". So It walk out there all pissed off and I saw it. I started to sweep some of it into the dustpan and it was of those rubber gag throw ups you get at Spencer's. I look up and this table of Seniors is looking and laughing at me. Fuckin' assholes.

Me: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Jim: You're an asshole.

Me: What??????

And now, enjoy this Howard Johnson clip:

Pardon my short comment. I am on my way to a Ho Jo biatch~

Madam Z said...

Yeah, those "seniors" are comic geniuses. But I don't think you're an asshole for laughing at the story.

Cameron said...

I'd have laughed to, then called him a douche.

Zibbsy, when I saw that Ho-Jo clip, I got all misty, crap, I hate that. My parents used to take us there all of the time when we were little, and we always got crayons and cool pages to color.
I am a big fan of fake puke, but a bigger fan of fake sh*t. It's especially effective if you dribble a little water over it.

Howard Johnson is right!

I've stopped putting fake sh*t or puke in my house...as soon as hubby gets sight of it, I'm the one having to clean up REAL puke....so thanks but no thanks...I'm more a fan of the good ol' fart cushion these days ...
You should try that one in a hairdressing salon (and put in the seat of this very chique lady...
:-O

I think if someone throws up in a restaurant they should be made to take the puke home in a doggy bag. That'll teach 'em.

I was sick once in HoJo's. What date was this incident exactly?

Girl Interrupted said...

Haha @ Mo's comment!

Dr. Z, frankly your immense popularity is even more of a mystery to me now

BTW: Mini Chipmunk Finger Puppets? Greatest invention of ALL TIME!

Dr Zibbs said...

Amanda and Madame Z - welcome to my blog.

Girl I - a mystery?

Jeannie said...

You absolutely had to laugh at your buddy. That is why they make fake puke.

O.G. said...

You have to love old people with a teenage sense of humor. If I were your buddy I'd be happier it was just fake puke.

Greta said...

Awesome prank. I hope I'm a funny senior.

Dr Zibbs said...

Greta - you were probably an awsome senior. I meant senior as in 12th grade.

Kristen said...

Seniors suck!

Peggy said...

I'm totally going to do shit like that when I'm a senior...punky teenagers can suck it!

I was just coming here to inquire if it was senior citizens or high-school-seniors, picking on the freshman. I laughed a lot harder at it being old people. Cried a little and had flashbacks at it being high schoolers.
