Article: One-Night Stand Wisdom from '80s Song Lyrics

When we published “How to Greet a Former One-Night Stand” on our site last week, Madamoiselle L suggested the worst way ever to do so: “Hey, how are you doing? Oh, I’d like you to meet your son.” To which Spes responded, “Wasn’t there an ’80s song about that?” Reader SS to the rescue! “Googling this was much more fun than folding laundry,” posted SS, “which is what I’m supposed to be doing.” So here, thanks to SS (and Madamoiselle L and Spes for the inspiration), are the weirdest — or, at least, most specific — lyrics about a one-night stand that we’ve ever heard.

I have no problem sharing and watching, sometimes repeatedly, viral YouTube videos. I especially am fond of old TV commercials for ridiculous products. They are the true signs of the times. And when celebrities are attached I get even more giddy. Enough with these posts around here about the Olympics and the environment and music. We need some camp too! (Yes, Johnny Weir counted as camp!)
