funkyrhino you have thoroughly debunked my post. I concede!

I can't exactly recall, and my archivist is on vacation right now. I apologize for the confusion.
Let the official AST record show that PJZ does not claim to be in close personal contact or have ever been friends with the hilarious Nate Bargatze! We were barely acquaintances. He certainly doesn't remember me, and the only reason I remember him is because he was obviously funny then, and every few years, my buddy Keith would tell me about how much funnier he was getting, so I paid attention to his career. Let the record also show that I foolishly gave iTunes $9.99 today, when I could have given Amazon $8.99. I didn't even bother to check first! Lastly, let the record show that his comedy album is truly hilarious, and when Nate Bargatze does explode in national popularity, I am going to expand my initial lie to include the fact that he and I grew up on the same block together and have been best friends since 3rd grade when we both had a crush on Lisa Murphy, but rather than like either of us back, she went steady with Pete Fowler who was the coolest kid in school. We became blood brothers at the jungle gym after school that day and then went back to his house and watched Small Wonder and looked at his Dad's nudie magazines.
