    What does the following sentence mean?

    "Imagine what it feels like to be the nerd that can't even get
    the fat girl by the punch bowl."

    Just a guess at a new expression: Imagine what it's like to be such a loser that you can't even get the fat girl (who is probably drunk) to go out with you.

    Oh dear ... the fat girl by the punch bowl ... the fat girl that nobody talks to at the party, so she stands by the punch bowl hoping that someone coming to refill his glass will say hello to her ....

    I know that fat girl:(.

    That's a much kinder -- and probably more accurate -- description than mine. I like her not getting sloshed. In fact, I hated to even say it. I'm glad I was wrong. :)

    Thank you, Loob.
    It's very clear now.
