Four guys sit around drinking beer and talking, trying to figure out the meaning of "the pompatus of love" (from the Steve Miller song "Joker") and analyzing their relationships with women.
The title phrase was taken from two songs by Steve Miller; the mysterious word "pompatus" was originally spelled "pompitous" in the printed lyrics. But it originally comes from the Medallions' 1954 song "The Letter", written by Vernon Green when he was 14. Green explained in the 1990s that the word actually began with "puppet" and was a term he'd made up for "a secret paper-doll fantasy figure, who would be my everything and bear my children".
