  1. Disgruntled?

    What game is this? And what does one have to do around here to get Blam-Blam! to respond to a comment? Oh, I see, say something of importance. How typical.

    She says: "What's your Blam?"
    Me: "What?"
    Friend: "You know, like, 'What's your beef'?"
    M: "Sure...but that still makes no sense. The saying would have to be 'What's your ham?' to make any sense."
    F: "It should be ham instead of beef.
    M: "I'll give you that but, you're not helping."
    F: "Where's the Blam?"
