Friends Named Steve

There is an abundance of people in my acquaintance who have friends named Steve. None of them are the SAME Steve. They’re always coming up in conversation. “You know, my friend Steve once said…” “Well, my friend Steve told me…” “My buddy Steve…” “My pal Stevie…” And all of the different friend-Steves seem to be weird. One of them is nicknamed “Goat,” another “Troll,” a third simply “Hooch.” And they say very, very strange yet funny things.

How many of you have (or ARE) friends named Steve?

Are these friends named Steve weird?

I have an imaginary friend named Steve. It started as a way to give flippant answers without thinking too hard.

“Where are you going?”

“To see my friend Steve.”

“Steve? Steve who?”

“Steve from Spain.”

Eventually he became a running gag, and he sends me and my friends occasional emails from


My SO, Steve, thinks it is all in your head. :wink:

No, really.

There was a band called My Friend Steve. They recently broke up.

I am a friend Steve. Yes, I occasionally say very very weird, yet funny things. Enough so that my friends (well, one anyway) started collecting my quotes and put them on a webpage

I’ve got much better ones too.

I have an uncle named Steve. He seems weird to me, but then that whole side of the family seems weird to me, they’re all, like, normal. Like TV normal. It’s scary. My other side of the family is nice and dysfunctional and REAL. I much prefer them. So, yes, the Steve I know is weird.

I’ve had an inordinate amount of Brians in my life, though. Does that count for anything?

Know what this reminds me of?

These are the Daves I know, I know,
These are the Daves I know.
These are the Daves I know, I know,
These are the Daves I know.
Some of them are David,
but most of them are Dave.
They all have thier own hands,
but they come from different moms.

(I’m sorry, I’m sick and somewhat delirious. I’ll leave now)
::shuffles off singing, “These are the Daves I know, I know…”::

I’m him. All of these Steves are me. I get around a lot. As a matter of fact, I’m so busy that I’m thinking of starting a franchise operation to pick up some of the business I’m missing.

The weird, yet funny sayings are a registered, patented process. But it’s nice of you to notice.

Regarding your obviously incorrect statement that all these Steves are different, let me just thank the Good Lord for inventing scooters, fake mustaches, Groucho glasses and Silly-Putty.

I’d also like to mention that while up 'till now the wierd quotable, pithy comments have been given out gratis, due to high demand for WEIRD FRIENDS NAMED STEVE CO’s services, I’m going to have to start charging a nominal amount for all future witty remark.

Note that there were none in the above post.

:wink: :smiley:

Fenris (who really is a “Steve”)

I too, have a friend named Steve. His nick is “The Gooch”

He says bizarre things, and acts rather strange at times.

I, too, am a friend named Steve, which I guess makes me Fenris’s sock puppet. I had no idea.

I had this very same conversation with a friend of mine once! We decided that everyone needs a friend named Steve. The truly bizarre part is that both of “our” Steves have that tendency to say really strange yet funny things, too.

Of course the sad part is that I’ve found out recently that “my” Steve may in fact be a jerk of the first order. And I would miss his bizarreness… sigh.

I am one of an inordinate amount of Davids that I know. It’s been that way all of my life. Currently, there are at least six Davids in my Bible study class. That’s out of maybe out of 16 males total.

I have at least 3 friends named Steve. David is a big one too. I’ve dated three Davids. Only 2 Steves though.

I have about four friends named Steve. Those are the ones I’m close with. I know about six more.

I have a friend named Steve too. He does say the most facinatingly odd things…

Oh? Do I?

You do indeed… :stuck_out_tongue:

I love that song!

There’s a movie that came out last fall called “The Tao of Steve”. In it, the main character postulates that Steve is the coolest name ever. The antithesis of the name Steve, by the way, is Stu.

I have just read the word ‘Steve’ so many times that it has lost all meaning to me now. It’s just phonetics. steve steve steve stevestevesteve teves veste estev I’m going slowly mad aren’t I? curse you steve.
