I don't recognize Petch and Lonk, but if they're from some game or something, then that would seem to be a nugget.

It might have to do with the accents from the Miis location.

The joke is that they're custom Mii characters that look almost like what they're based off of but not quite. Hence, they kinda look like unofficial chinese bootlegs which would have mistranslated names. ;)

Thank you.  I know who Link and Princess Peach are, but had no idea what game that was with Petch and Lonk.  I was just saying that if those are actual characters in that game, then it must be intentional.  I have no idea what Mii is.

Mii's are avatars you create within the Wii, Wii U, etc.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

As a former IT guy these are not my people, my people were in their mid twenties, have never ironed a shirt in their life, and will discuss WoW daily.

As a banker guy my people are now late twenty douches who wear sleeveless vests with the bank logo in 90 degree weather so people outside know exactly where they work at all time.

I miss my IT people

As a pharmacy guy, my people are miserable, coddled, passive aggressive, gossiping, vindictive, viscous, lazy assholes with an attitude that all hate each other, don't care about patients, that will run to HR at the drop of a hat, that smile to your face and talk massive shit behind your back and make a very simple and straitforward job into a nightmare.

I miss my IT people that I never had  :P

Thank god for when I get to work nightshifts though, where its just me there by myself. Heaven on earth  :hefdaddy

 :lol the IT staff at the banks I used to work at look like that, old white dudes with their tucked in collar shirts.  Good people though, I miss my days at Bear Stearns, that was a good job before they crashed hard in 2008.  The IT folk I work with now are all hipsters.

I'm old enough now where I don't really know WHO my "people" are.    Maybe that commercial where the older people are sitting in the circle, and one says "Defense wins championships", the woman next to him says "Well, it does!" and the third guy - wearing socks and sandals - holds up his flip phone and says "why would I get a new one? This one works perfectly fine!". 

I do know that I was in big Corporate America around the time of that video (and thereafter) and in hindsight, so much of "business" was "throw shit against the wall and see what sticks".   That's where a lot of the buzzwords came out; you had to be a "rock star!" and we're on a "jihad!" for customers, and blah blah blah.   I wonder if all that jumping around and acting like we just landed on the moon sold even one copy of software.   (And for the record, Gene Krantz did NOT jump around like that when he DID, actually, direct the flight that DID land on the moon).

A friend of the family texted this story to my 17yo son yesterday.

As a preface, apparently, if you want nuts with your McDonald's McFlurry, they give them to you in a separate packet.

So, this friend was really in the mood for ice cream, but something prevented him from getting to the particular place he wanted it from before it closed, so he ended up driving through McDonald's.  He got to the window, and the girl/young woman handed him his McFlurry.  She then realized she had forgotten to give him the packet of nuts and exclaimed, "oh, wait, let me grab your nuts."

My son and I spent the next 5 minutes laughing uncontrollably.

Pharmacy people sound a lot like air traffic controllers. 
And probably a good percentage of the general population, now that I think about it.  Unfortunate.
