"Can I have her balls once they're out? I want to get them bronzed and mounted on a plaque."
Now I know what "thunderstruck" looks like. He drops his face into his hands -- both, so a "double facepalm" (do I get extra points for that?) -- and takes a few minutes to recover. When he does, the answer (which I pretty much expected) was "No. Just...(really long pause)...no. Yes, I'm a doctor, but I'm still a guy, and just...(another really long pause)...no."
By this point, Em and I are giggling our collective tails off, and the RN has this look of "WTF" with the saucer-sized eyes and is dead-silent..
And yes, I was serious.
One of those bonding things at work recently was "the first 5 songs from this person's playlist" with a lot of higher-ups in the company of whom I'd never before heard. (Did I say that anywhere near right? No? Deal.) I'm in the car heading home, my iPod is on shuffle, and the 4th song was "Supersadomasochisticnecrobeastiality." Yep. Pretty sure they don't wanna play that game with me -- and before anyone *coughJeffcough* else says it, I mean EITHER game. (Yay for the Bedlam Bards!)
(x-posted from FB, where I starred out a lot of the song title due to not being sure who-all can see it. If you're looking *here,* you've declared you're of age.)
Original (or just that I haven't heard) is an extra entry.
Winner will be random draw.
Draw will be on
"Prize" will be a half-dozen imps/vials/decants/soap samples/etc. from equally random e-tailers. (Most vials will have been sampled from.)
there_she_goes is the winner!
Some folks there refer to themselves as TransGendered or TG.
Other folks, and yes, there's an overlap, refer to next Thursday as "TG" for ThanksGiving.
So, next Thursday is ... yup! A VERY special holiday!
For some reason, this got a chuckle when I pointed it out on one of the boards :D
So...next Thursday, show up cross-dressed to share the dressed turkey! After all, it's TG!

Junkfood Science has a rather interesting series on obesity -- maybe it ain't as bad as the TV tells us! Which I've been saying for some to me....but eeh, who listens to me?

09:57 am - Firefly Fandom Wank Response
An interesting-- and intensely hilarious-- response to _allecto_'s claim that JOss Whedon is an anti-feminist rapist comes from aic_weirdo in Miandry in Popular Culture, Part I.
I'm staying out of the wankage this time. But this is too funny to not pass on.
Thank you spankerella, from whom I ganked the anti-wank.
The only bits I feel qualified to comment on -- not having seen the series and all -- are these:
(from _allecto_'s post)
"The first scene opens in a war with Mal and Zoe. Zoe runs around calling Mal ‘sir’ and taking orders off him. I roll my eyes. Not a good start."
"The basic plot of the series is Malcolm Reynolds and his second in command Zoe <snip>"
"Zoe...(h)er role is to support Mal’s manly obsession with himself by encouraging him, calling him ‘sir’ (emphasis mine),and even starting the fights for him."
Uhm. OK, I do NOT know who is the ranking person in the first quote, but from context in the post let's say it's Mal.
And in the SECOND quote, it's pretty darn clear.
Point? If you're the brass, you give the orders. If you're NOT the brass, you FOLLOW those orders, especially in the middle of a war. As a general rule, you call the captain of a ship (or any officer, including any NCO if you're a Marine) "Sir." Or Ma'am, if they're female (and not a Marine).
Heck, I call my classmates (and instructor, and HUSBAND for gossakes) Sir or Ma'am as appropriate just from force of habit -- it doesn't mean I'm gonna crawl over and lick their boots!
Someone (_allecto_, perhaps?) needs a bit of a reality check, IMO.
"Aside from women being fuck toys, property and punching bags for the men, the women have very little importance in the series. I counted the amount of times women talk in the episode Serenity compared to the amount of times men talk. The result was unsurprising. Men: 458 Women: 175. So throughout the first episode men talk more than two and a half times as much as women do. And women talk mainly in questions whereas men talk in statements. Basically, this means that men direct the action and are active participants whereas women are merely observers and facilitators."
Mal, Wash, Jayne, Shepherd, Simon
Inara, Kaylee, Zoe, River
OK, maybe this is an accurate count. I have the possibly mistaken impression from somewhere that River doesn't talk much, if at all, for at least the first couple of episodes, so maybe we should count her out for this. And -- who is onscreen more? Questions can be used to direct action or make people think -- if you're captain of a ship, are you going to be more receptive to "Have we tried this yet?" or to "That's a dumb idea."?
Also, is the poster counting each time one starts to talk, or is word count taken into consideration? Is a 4-page monologue one utterance? Would this entire post be opening my yap ONE time, or once per sentence, or per subject...? Not enough information here.

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello's famous sketch "Who's on first?" might have turned out something like this:
COSTELLO CALLS TO BUY A COMPUTER FROM ABBOTT . . . .
ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.
ABBOTT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one
COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.
ABBOTT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look in the windows?
COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
ABBOTT: Software for Windows?
COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses and run my business. What have you got?
COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
ABBOTT: I just did.
COSTELLO: You just did what?
ABBOTT: Recommend something.
COSTELLO: You recommended something?
COSTELLO: For my office?
COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?
COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!
ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.
COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, lets just say I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?
COSTELLO: What word?
ABBOTT: Word in Office.
COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.
ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?
ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue "W".
COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue "w" if you don't start with some straight answers. OK, forget that. Can I watch movies on the Internet?
ABBOTT: Yes, you want Real One.
COSTELLO: Maybe a real one, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of your business. Just tell me what I need!
ABBOTT: Real One.
COSTELLO: If it's a long movie I also want to see reel 2, 3 & 4. Can I watch them?
ABBOTT: Of course.
COSTELLO: Great! With what?
ABBOTT: Real One.
COSTELLO: OK, I'm at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do
ABBOTT: You click the blue "1".
COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?
ABBOTT: The blue "1".
COSTELLO: Is that different from the blue w?
ABBOTT: The blue "1" is Real One and the blue "W" is Word.
COSTELLO: What word?
ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: But there's three words in "office for windows"!
ABBOTT: No, just one. But it's the most popular Word in the world.
COSTELLO: It is?
ABBOTT: Yes, but to be fair, there aren't many other Words left. It pretty much wiped out all the other Words out there.
COSTELLO: And that word is real one?
ABBOTT: Real One has nothing to do with Word. Real One isn't even part of Office.
COSTELLO: STOP! Don't start that again. What about financial
You have anything I can track my money with?
COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?
COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?
ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.
COSTELLO: What's bundled with my computer?
COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?
ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.
COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?
ABBOTT: One copy.
COSTELLO: Isn't it illegal to copy money?
ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy money.
COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?
ABBOTT: Why not? THEY OWN IT!
A FEW DAYS LATER . .
ABBOTT: Hello, Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off?
ABBOTT: Click on "START".......
