"if you’re straight then why did you say she was hot"
yo i’m straight not blind
One time a nun at my school saw a hot guy and said “woah God did a nice job on that one” and we all looked at her like ??? and she goes “I’m allowed to look at the menu I just can’t order”
I JUST CAN’T ORDER.
Okay but Never Gonna Give You Up (better known as Rickroll) is actually a really really horrible song for many reasons, which I will better explain under the cut.
Brace yourselves, this is pretty long.
Wow I actually never thought I’d even care about such an old song but jeez
SIGNAL BOOST THE SHIT OUT OF THIS
the expression “i cant say that with a straight face” comes from the fact that straight people have no sense of humour and cant tell jokes
um can you not?are you straight because I’m sensing a lack of sense of humor

so what if
- Earl expressed feelings for Cecil that Cecil didn’t share at around the same time as whatever happened to Cecil when he was 15
- and it could have been Cecil letting Earl down gently and Earl dealing with it as well as he could and them remaining besties
- but then The Thing happened
- and Cecil’s reaction to The Thing is to completely forget about it unless confronted with direct evidence of it at which point he gets rid of the evidence and forgets about that too (which may be a coping mechanism or the result of forces/entities not wanting him to understand too much or some combination thereof)
- so there were all these instances of Cecil acting kind of weird and off but when Earl asked about it he was all “dude I seriously have no idea what you’re talking about”
- which Earl misinterpreted as Cecil giving him the brush-off and was eventually like “fine, I can take a hint” and from then on they talked/hung out far less often
- and to this day Cecil doesn’t remember why they stopped being close and Earl doesn’t know what happened to him
- bonus: Earl didn’t get in touch with Cecil when he came back to night vale because he feels bad about their last conversation, in which he wouldn’t have brought up his unrequited feelings for Cecil if he hadn’t been pretty sure he wasn’t going to survive the ceremony and now that he’s back he doesn’t want Cecil to feel awkward or like Earl’s expecting anything from him (I am gravitating towards the idea of an Earl who’s Very Respectful of Boundaries, can you tell)
- now I want to write epic genfic about Cecil and Earl growing up together and then this and then them reconnecting as adults, why
Unexpected Earl feels.
