“Aaron, Bring it.”

Hilarious correspondence: Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr – First Year College Roommates .

I am howling. I liked when Hamilton wrote: “I wrote to the RD and asked for another roommate. Guess who I’ll be rooming with? George Mother F***ing Washington. Eat it. Alexander.”

I’m dying.

(Member when we all speculated about how George and Aaron and Alexander would be text messaging each other??) This is genius.

Thanks, ricki, for the link!

    I’m dying over this: “You can hang up ones and tens and jerk off to your own pictures all day long.”

    I know!! I love the “Emperor Fuck Face” line.

    I love how they’re mocked-up on these fancy parchment type sheets, with a formal type, and then they’re saying things like

    “My screen name is SexiBurrXoXo” and debating the merits of different types of video games.

    I’m also laughing at the “compensation” remark.

    and “It’s already been brought.”

    My favorite party is the haughtiness of Burr’s response to Hamilton’s initial letter. My immediate response was, “That is sooo Aaron!”…. Then I realized that I have no idea what Aaron Burr was like, just that I like Hamilton more.

  5. red says:

    JFH – hahahaha yeah, really – it’s like he’s immediately on this high horse. “I am a very very VERY important person in American history.”

    I also like it when Hamilton calls him a “retard”. Things go south pretty quickly after that.

    “And the PS3 is so NOT overrated. You know what’s overrated? The Treasury Department.”

    And…”Anyone who conspires to steal the Louisiana Purchase is obviously compensating for a tiny dick.”

    God, that site is friggin’ GENIUS.

    I love how Hamilton gets right to it: including “Thomas Jefferson’s stupid face” in his list of pet peeves.

  9. Emily says:

    I love those text messages you guys did, too. “I’m so money I’m ON money.”

  10. red says:

    I know – I loved Ken’s “j/k” at the end of a hostile text – and Nightfly’s “you are teh suck” still makes me laugh out loud.

    Dammit. I can’t read it. :-( Stupid fancy font. *cries*

    red, you don’t understand. i don’t even like history. i hate it because i can’t remember a single date except June 22, 1941, and the only reason i can remember that date is because it’s from my favorite novel. seriously. dates plagued me on every single history exam i took in my life.

    that said, that website was so freaking funny. i read all of the notes aloud to Frank (well, you know, i bleeped some words and whatnot) but i was laughing so hard that i could hardly read them.

    Aaron Burr was such a haughty pinkytoe.

  13. Nightfly says:

    These are brilliant! They each listed “nail biters” as a peeve! “You can borrow from my DVD collection, pending approval…” HAHAHAHAHA! Like he’s got to apply to watch Burr’s prized copy of “My Dinner with Andre.”

    And shucks, Sheila, I’m flattered… =)
