Down the Drain

I hate doing dishes too.
I hate doing dishes too.

I am still sick as a dog –more specifically, as a sick dog — so I thought I’d share the misery with you all by sharing this, what is possibly the most depressing ad for paper cups ever devised. Who knew that the solution to “the problem that has no name” was Dixie cups?

Mr. Show offered an updated take on this ad technique with their classic Mayostard/Mustardayonnaise ad parodies:

Stoned, headbanging emoticons. It had to happen eventually.

I can’t tell you how happy I am that worked.

Hey, you guys, typhoidblue has really been on a roll lately. In addition to comparing fucking everything to slavery, she’s also arguing that all societies are matriarchal.

Also, there’s this supposed debate sub on Reddit for feminists and MRAs to hash things out, but there are very few feminists who will participate. They decided collectively that rape jokes and arguments in favor of marital rape are a-okay, but that calling MRAs “misters” is a slur and will get your comment deleted, putting you on the train to ban-ville.

I can’t imagine why they don’t get more feminists to participate.

Oh also, free men in classical Rome could only be farmers or soldiers. That’s also something I learned from typhonblue recently. Slaves were freer than free men, because they could hold down a greater variety of jobs.

Here endeth your history lesson of the day.

If you’re not trolling, straight answer

And if you would prefer a queer answer, we have those, too πŸ˜‰

I’m still wishing there was a :kitty: icon.

They have ’em on Ravelry, why can’t we have ’em here???

Has anyone here ever heard cats snoring? Because that’s what my cats are doing right now and it’s the sweetest thing ever. They’re also curled up towards each other so their foreheads are touching.

Yep, my cat snores all the time. She’s really loud too, I can hear her from the other room.

“… she’s (typhoidblue) also arguing that all societies are matriarchal.”

Errr, in the insect world, sure, it happens a lot. It doesn’t even happen in film that much — with some exceptions. Like that shitty Nic Cage version of “The Wicker Man,” in which the bizarro island community seemed to be modled after bees.
Let’s see, Wonder Woman’s Paradise Island…yep, matriarchal. And all those old timey black and white Amazon Women on the Moon flicks. It never failed in those movies. Male astronauts would land on the all-women planet — where no man has existed for thousands of years — and pow! All the amazon chicks would immediately want to tear the male astronauts’ clothes off and ravish them. Please. Didn’t those screenwriters from the 40s and 50s ever hear of lesbians?

Rats! I wanted to make a frame of emoticons. Oh, well, they’re still fun.

My current kitties don’t snore, but dearly departed Twinkie was a terrible snorer. And drooler. Such a drooler.

My cat purrs and snores simultaneously sometimes. It is good for drowning out things, like perhaps typhoidblue.

So basically what we need is a giant cat who’s as bored with her as most people are.

Yes. A giant bored cat is definitely the solution.

How is it possible that there’s a :burrito: but not a :kitteh: ? What kind of world is this?

I can only wonder which came first: the mayostard advertisements, or Dijonnaise.

Okay. I can do more than wonder. Two quick searches reveal that Dijonnaise was introduced in 1992 while the Mr. Show was first aired in 1995.

Ah, but if a giant cat gets bored, this can happen.

Cats snoring – most of ours have. Fribs is a super-snorer, I can hear her from another room. Mads snores even when she’s awake. Well, more or less awake.

Whereas I don’t like miracle whip OR mayo, but I do like gay men. Our hivemind seems to be broken again.

Is that an envelope emoticon?

Since the unfortunate reality is that some feminists are intolerant of gay men (be disappointed if you want, I know the vast majority are not like that, but I also know extreme opinions and intolerance tend to show up far more often on the internet), acceptance is a good way of determining whether or not a website is rational and readable. Yes, I am gay, and no, I have no intention of trolling anyone. I was honestly wondering what this site’s position on the matter was. Also I didn’t feel like lurking because I very seldom read blogs. Sorry.

If you’re looking on the internet, you’ll probably also find feminists who are intolerant of feminists.

And they get free room and bored too! Lucky ducks!
