If you didn't read yesterday's review of Looney's South, you missed (what I think is) a pretty funny passage about Bar Voice.
Here it is:
Ever heard someone talk in bar voice? It's a (pretty lame) term I use to describe the obnoxiously loud, often raspy voice that post-college guys use when they have had a few drinks. Looney's was abuzz with bar voice that night ...
This particular young fellow outside the place noticed a friend of his, and said, in bar voice, "HEY! WHAT'S UP, DUDE?" His friend, for some unfathomable reason, must not have heard him, and kept walking.
Mr. Bar Voice didn't give up trying. "HEY! HE'S GONNA WALK RIGHT BY ME. LOOK! HEY MAN! HEY!"
Finally, his friend realized what was going on, stopped and said hello. Whew. For a second there, I thought a fight was about to break out. Ignoring anybody who speaks in bar voice is a dangerous idea. You never know what might happen.
