  1. Yes, we really need to allow all these uninformed yahoos vote, with their knee jerk reactions… Maybe we should star a Facebook petition. Those are ironclad.

  2. I had to read this one: Idaho teacher who used word ‘vagina’ during biology lesson faces reprimand
    And some of the comments are just as ridiculous as the article.
    The pic of the ex-pope killed me, I should print it and put it on my office.

    • Smaktakula says:

      Yeah, that pope pic is something else. It’s not particularly unflattering, physically, considering his age. But now that the Ex-Pope (we haven’t had one of those in a while) is just Herr Ratzinger again, I guess he afford to get a little freaky. He’s a German, after all.

      I’ve been meaning to take a look at the Vagina article as well. I’m interested to see where they could possibly be coming from. Idaho, particularly the northern panhandle, is the most like “another country” of any place in the US I’ve been. I don’t mean that in a negative way, although, as I’m afraid the article will show, those manifestations are there, but simply that they have a different way of looking at things, which seems to hover between endearing, admirable eccentricity and scary craziness.

  3. The woman who swims with Great Whites is actually totally inspiring. While I do think her time is limited if she keeps doing this, the footage she shoots in incredible! Additionally, I’m all for anyone who tries to make sharks less terrifying.

    The thing about safe sex being as pleasurable is totally false on its face, but I don’t remember every hearing anyone say, “Hey, you know what feels super good? Herpes!”

    Headlines: Proving the third world is alive and well. In the first world.

    (I’ve got $10 on Connie when she comes after you for mocking her sacred love for Ebert.)

    • Carrie Rubin says:

      It’s funny, because I haven’t thought of Roger Ebert in years until my defense of the man on Smak’s last post. Now his and my name will forever be entwined. Along with Jim Carrey’s nipple.

      • Smaktakula says:

        Now his and my name will forever be entwined

        Oh, I’ve had my fun, but I’m hardly the kind of guy who’ll derive some twisted thrill from repeatedly dragging out a gag that maybe wasn’t even that funny in the first place rather than letting it die with perhaps undeserved dignity. I think you know that, Connie.

        SPEAKING of which, you’ve got the opening line to your Eberotica memoir (with some editorial assistance from yours truly):

        “It’s funny, because I hadn’t thought of Roger Ebert in years. Even as I heard the news of his death, my memories of that summer in Paris with Roger–sipping afternoon coffees in busy sidewalk cafes along the Boulevard Saint-Germaine, where Roger ate so many beignets that time and threw up over a curb while I held his hair and sang that Joni Mitchell song he liked so much; strolling hand in hand along the Seine, breathing in the rich bouquet that was equal parts sewage, French people, and the whiff of salami that was so much a signature of Roger’s presence as to be almost an olfactory shadow; and those fever-hot nights in Roger’s bed, in the room he rented on some forgotten back street from an aging madame who’d seen her once-prosperous brothel flounder over the years as her girls aged out of the business or just as likely died–were like photos of long-ago friends. I never thought about him.

        So why was I crying?”

        Oh my God, Carrie–This thing writes itself!

      • Carrie Rubin says:

        I’m tearing up just thinking of our good times in Paris. Just me and Roger. Thanks for summing them up so beautifully. But maybe I should throw in a snippet about the Turkish toilet outside my room on the ‘servants’ floor where my family housed me (I was an Au Pair girl after high school for a year). Me, Roger, and the Turkish toilet.

        By the way, “Eberotica”—Love it!

    • Smaktakula says:

      No bet. My combat strategy is to go fetal, and she looks like she can kick pretty good.

  5. I am quite sure that picture of the sculpture of the emeritus pope will make Milton’s day. And a thought on “Woman who swims with Great White sharks”: she might soon be called “Dinner”.

    • Smaktakula says:

      she might soon be called “Dinner”.

      To be fair, that was essentially my gag with “chum.”

      chum [chuhm] verb, chummed, chum·ming.
      1. cut or ground bait dumped into the water to attract fish to the area where one is fishing.

  6. Carrie Rubin says:

    How nice of you to promote my erotic memoir! As you can see, I cleverly changed my name to Connie for it. The memoir is a total of 2 pages, one of which is devoted entirely to my back rub from Erin Moran, and the other to Roger Ebert’s thumb.

  7. Brigitte says:

    Nice to know what Carrie’s been working on, it’s been all hush-hush. And don’t be dissing my Chachi.

  8. When we had to refer to male and female equipment in biology class (rural Ohio, mid 1980s) the terms were “wiener” (male) and “cha-cha” (female,) though “sausage” and “taco” were sometimes used as well. Vagina…well that was a cigarette I think- Vagina Slims. Or something like that.

  9. whiteladyinthehood says:

    Smakington, You did it again, dude! It’s just so damn funny. Thumbs-Up on all the hilarious comments, too.
    Poor Joanie (I actually felt sorry for her after reading that article…even thought I hated her so much)
    The 5 Worst Mistakes Women Make in Bed….Holy Shit – you have got to read that if you didn’t…it’s so stupid it was hilarious. Part of tip #4: Sometimes the human body will get the best of you, and your period will start early or you may let out a noise closer to a “moo” than a moan….WTF??

  10. jmmcdowell says:

    Another urgent national poll? Gee, weren’t there enough of them in the Facebook ads during election season?

  11. Ha Haa! Loved the post. What jumped out at me was:

    “Why People Create Fake Relationships ~ So their pathetic, joyless lives appear slightly less pathetic and joyless. We thought that was obvious.”

    So what does one need to do to shift out of this state? Can one give up on the relationships??
