Comment Of The Day: Where Nobody Knows Your Name

For today’s Comment of the Day, our readers took the (MILDLY AMUSING POST) about a failed attempt at sending a form letter by (MAJOR UNITED STATES AIRLINE). One comment clearly shone, though. Or maybe all of our editors just grew up in the ’80s.


Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.

Wouldn’t you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your (CUSTOMER NAME),
and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows

You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows

    I remember Cheers. Barely.

      I stopped watching it when Coach passed away. I couldn’t stand Woody by himself.

      I definitely remember Cheers and didn’t like it (probably because I didn’t understand most of it). Later on in re-runs though I found out how great of a show it was.

        My wife had never watched it, and I had loved it back then, so we started watching it on Netflix right from S1E1. The only thing that makes it dated is that you can’t smoke in bars anymore.

          And the internet and cell phones.

          There was one episode where Sam wrote a poem, and Diane was sure she’d seen it somewhere before. She was digging through book after book looking for it.

          Oddly enough, a Google search would have supported Sam’s claim that he wrote it, because he had stolen it from Diane’s unpublished works.

    I’ve never watched [SHOW] and don’t know anything about [SHOW] other than [SHOW] features a [DRINKING ESTABLISHMENT], [ACTOR], and that [SELECTED SONG].

    The full version of the song is even better:

    It’s one of my favorites.
