Nice first post on T-Nation.
So let me take a stab at how the conversation went that led you here:
Your friend: Hey, there is this cool weightlifting website called "T-Nation". It is sweet.
You: Really, that is awesome. I'll go take a look. Hey do you think they would be impressed with my awesome physique?
Your friend: For sure! You should totally put a picture of you calves on there. You are going to get so much praise.
You: Yeah, I am so awesome. I don't even workout these sweet-ass calves. Those dudes are going to be so jealous!
Your friend: Yeah....can I rub oil on your calves? You know, for the picture?
