Words from my Yearbook

September 4th, 2014 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

Since today’s product is actually a quote from high school Tim (more on that later), I thought I’d embrace Throwback Thursday and find something funny from my high school days to share. So I cracked open my senior yearbook to see what people had written to me. This message from my friend “Jenny” says it all…

Tim,
You are a really big freak with problems.

Starting off good already…

You have made this year interesting with all your jokes and groping my body.

Yeah I was always quite the jokster…wait…what did that say? Groping her body? That’s gotta be a joke right? No one would be cool with me groping them back then. Let me remind you that this is the guy this young lady is talking about:


He’s groping her…then he’s gonna grope ME!
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDD!!!

You are just a big horn dog.

Sweet mother of all that is holy! I think I have to reexamine my entire high school identity. I was a total creeper. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This went from funny stroll down memory lane to dark film noir way too quickly for my taste.

You had a great performance at Pops Concert and you are very funny. Every time I watch a Jim Carrey movie, I think of you.

It pains me to point out that at this point his most recent movie was “Dumb and Dumber.”

You two are so much alike.

…apart from the groping

It was really nice getting to know you this year.

Really? That seems unlikely. Given the first two sentences you wrote.

We should really try to keep in touch

Please…don’t say “touch!”

because your jokes would make my life much more exciting.

And then she gives me her phone number. What? This wasn’t like Mad Men days or anything. Being a handsy creepo was not generally acceptable. Fortuantly, I never bothered this poor girl again. She’s safe.

And now, behold the gigantic discrepancy between what I was like and how I thought about myself in high school. Today’s shirt is an actual quote I said out loud in front of many people…on purpose, “It’s so awesome to be me…everyone should have a turn.”

I’m pretty sure I was being sarcastic when I said it…but now I’m not sure of anything anymore.

…Except that this shirt comes in over 100 different styles and colors (men, women, hoodies, tank tops, etc.) and at least one of them would look AMAZING on you.
