...and that's just what she does, sifting through newspaper headlines on microfilm. She discovers that Mac's parents got the wrong baby, and that they and the other parents in the mix-up were each awarded a million dollars. And what word describes the two sets of parents running into each other at day care? Awkward. I hate to bring this up, but the first line of the story Veronica found reads "After [four or five, I couldn't really tell] years of legal battles..." So first off, the hospital didn't settle? As if. Second, that means that the parents knew about the error in short order after it happened. There was a lot of debate on the forums about whether the parents should have switched the kids back, with a significant number of people under the impression that the error wasn't discovered until the kids were four. Pretty eagle-eyed of me, considering that without contacts, my vision is 20/Holy shit, are you seriously that blind? VMVO worries that this could ruin Mac's life. Or it could open whole new possibilities. Like Sapphism. VMVO: "How do you live a normal life once you find out you were switched at birth?" I don't know, but it sounds like something Lifetime is just dying to tell us. Come to think of it, I haven't seen Dyan Cannon in anything for a while.
Keith and Officer Fuckface walk into a shop with a bunch of guitars hanging from the ceiling and some hard guitar playing live from somewhere in the store. ["Turn that racket down! You woke me up, you cotton-pickin' whipper-snappers!" -- Geezer CB] Keith's like, "Hellooo, Cleveland!" I think there were better lines available, such as pointing to one of the guitars and saying it couldn't be played. But Keith's referencing This Is Spinal Tap at all gains him about fifty cool points with me. Fuckface hasn't seen the movie, which isn't a surprise. Certain people give off the impression that they were never kids, and Fuckface is at the top of that heap, held there by the enormous stick up his ass. Anyway, the two of them find three guys conducting a jam session, and eventually one of the guys notices them. He's slow to respond, though, prompting Keith to tell Fuckface, "He's waiting for you to throw your panties." Hee. It's funny because it's Fuckface. Anyway, the guy comes out of the studio. He's very porcine, which can be surprisingly convenient from a casting point of view, since he played a pig-turned-man on Charmed. Keith manages to get the guy to focus, which isn't easy. Next time, try bringing a big bucket of slop. You can dump the leftovers over Fuckface's head while you're at it. Keith shows Trufflehunter the guitar string and asks if there's anything unusual about it. Trufflehunter tells them it's a very special string ordered only by one customer, "Devil Dave." Fuckface buys it hook, line, and sinker, but it turns out Devil Dave is some loser-looking guy sitting in the store, and there's absolutely nothing special about the string. I guess you could say Trufflehunter "strung them along."
