You know how I usually say that my comics are based on true stories?

This one is totally a true story.

This chick came into the bar I work at one night and after bringing up video games, I showed her the comic and she even said, "Very Penny-Arcadish." She then proceeded to talk about how she had just spent $2,000 on a gaming PC for Dark Souls 2. I ended up ruining a part of book five of A Song of Ice and Fire cause I'm a fucktard, and after she left I walked up to a friend of mine and told him, "This is the closest thing to feeling 'love' that I've experienced in seven years."

So fast forward a few days later when she came in with a bunch of equally hot friends and started singing The Little Mermaid. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I sing Disney songs as loud as humanly possible at least once a day. It's a horrible compulsion.

I despise karaoke at my bars with a passion, but when I'm forced by the DJ's to get up and be "part of the night", the song "Part of Your World" is the one I go to because not only do I love the song, but I thoroughly enjoy making a total ass out of myself. Seeing a 6'2" 250 hairy 30 year old belt out that song with my angelic voice always confuses the hell out of people and the main reason I do it.

Also because Little Mermaid was the first VHS tape I ever had as a kid and will always hold a special place with me.

HOWEVER, when three hot 20-something girls start singing it, every instinct I had said, "DO NOT SING THIS FUCKING SONG IN FRONT OF THESE GIRLS."

When they got to the chorus, though, my hands were literally shaking and the closest thing I can relate it to is some sort of drug relapse. I HAD to sing the song.

Later on that night I was explaining what happened to my friend who knows the hot nerd and his first response was, "Please, for the love of God, tell me you sang 'Under the Sea' or 'Kiss The Girl'."

I just put my face in my hands and said, "No. I sang the gayest fucking song in the entire movie." and I'll be completely honest with you, if I could go back in time, I don't think I'd be able to stop myself from doing it all over again. Fucking Disney songs...
