hasty ambush: Feel sorry for the kids involved. Wonder how they turned out.


The oldest boy was later sent to Syracuse for a dog to be named later. His brother became a free agent and signed with the Carmichael family from Peoria. The two girls were eventually released.

Boojum2k: Jim from Saint Paul: Whiskey Dickens: Is anyone else skeeved to the core by the idea of partner swapping?  How utterly not in love do you have to be to do that?

Well, personally, I find the idea of girls who are not my wife yucky.

She's standing over your shoulder, isn't she?


NO. WHY DO YOU ASK?

Sybarite: That's...a very 70's story.


The end of the article says that Afleck and Damon are in talks to portray the two in a movie. Do you suppose they are method actors? "Hey, Ben. I need to fark Jen tonight to get into this role."

Yup. It was awesome. After the pill and before AIDS. Nothing else needs to be said, really.

Permanent, but not fatal. Fatal changed the game.

balki1867: FTFA:  In the end, the "life swapping" didn't work out all too well for everyone involved. Mike and Marilyn split up after a few months and tried to get back with their estranged spouses, but Fritz and Susanne didn't want to separate.

LOL, awkward. One side of the swap realized they'd both upgraded by ending up with each other.


As Annie Savoy said in Bull Durham...Bad trades are part of baseball.

Gaseous Anomaly: dustygrimp: Jim from Saint Paul, let me clarify. I would be the only one on board for swinging. I am talking about making it permanent.

The four of you could become a couple.

It wouldn't last if I was the only one getting laid.  But with two wives, I could probably get it twice a week, right?

In other words, you've farked your best friend's wife and he's a cuckold who'll say that he's all for it to hide his shame but your wife doesn't want anything to do with that mess.

I read that story and immediately thought, wow, this would make a pretty good movie script!

Then I got to the last line of the story... "Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are rumored to be onboard to portray them in a film based on their scandalous ordeal."

FTA: "Academy Award-winning bff's (and die-hard Red Sox loyalists) Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are rumored to be onboard to portray them in a film based on their scandalous ordeal. "

Damon and Affleck doing a movie about it? Who'd have figured a couple of Sawx fans would want to bring this back into the spotlight?
