The Showcase of Depravity

This is the long hard truth. It goes extra deep.

"Comedy's a dead art form. Now tragedy, that's funny." The Showcase of Depravity showcases... depravity. Wisdom and humor from the perspective of a few disgruntled (& sexy) video store professionals.

The Margaret/Peggy thing... what the fuck?

At least 4 regular customers come in and when i ask them for their first name to bring up the proper account they say the first name is Peggy...
and then i look up and down all the Smith accounts to find Peggy and there is none to be found.
Turns out the name is Margaret. How would I know that?

At first I thought it was just a coincidence and maybe Margaret is someone else, or maybe its a rarely used and unrelated nick name or something, but no. Peggy is a common shortening of Margaret.

How is P-E-G-G-Y a shortened version of M-A-R-G-A-R-E-T

they hardly even share any letters at all, let alone the most important letter: the first one.

Now, I can totally understand Margaret getting shortened to Maggy, like we find in The Simpsons. But what is with all these women taking the name Peggy instead of Margaret, and then even worse - expecting people to know they are the same.

women are crazy, i've always said that. Is it just me? Maybe I just don't get how Peggy derives from Margaret, I guess i'll never know. Another mystery about women that i'll never understand, like their vaginas.

I think in conclusion Ice Cube and Tupac got it right - instead of worrying about women and their stupid names, we should all just call them "Bitch". A controversial viewpoint, I know... but it seems to be the only logical one. Besides, don't get mad at me... the rappers started it. blame them.
