I Got Nothing

Posted on | March 8, 2013 | 18 Comments

Sometimes you see an item and instantly think, “Wow, I gotta blog that, because this will be hilarious.” And so it was when I saw a weird bit of news from HuffPo, but then . . . blank.

Zilch. Zero. Nada. And I think the problem is that, once you’d read the item, there really isn’t anything you can add to it that would make it any funnier than it already is — that is to say, if you’re the kind of person who thinks it’s funny when a guy has to go to the hospital because he got a dildo wedged up inside his bunghole, then live-Tweets the process of having it extracted.

Did I mention there’s an X-ray?

UPDATE: OK, while I was caught jokeless, Ace of Spades was running a whole riff on Mister Bunghole’s Very Bad Day.

    Could it be an economic metaphor?

    Could be a constitutional metaphor. Wonder if there were any stitches involved.

    If not, it would surely pass for a more accurate state of the union address…..

    There was a time when you wouldn’t talk about this.

    It’s very long gone.

    Ain’t THAT the truth! Next up, Yahoo tips on how to change batteries in this kind of emergency…..or how that never happened with soap on a rope because you could always fish it back out……you know, a probing historical account of stupidity.

    Smitty, all I have to say is better this than blowing up the planet. Leave some simple amusements for the criminal insane leaders of the world.

    I’ve got a similar story – a friend once showed me a graphic photo of someone he’d encountered (he worked at a hospital) suffering from exactly the same dildo-related malady.
    But wait, there’s more – for whatever reason, the guy and his girlfriend weren’t willing or able to purchase a commercially available dildo, so they had improvised such a device with a cut off broomhandle, bubble wrap, and packing tape.

    ; ) There are support groups for asspiring human sock puppets.

    That article ain’t fit to sweep the sidewalk in front of the hospital where Dr. Mona Moore works.

    I thought a support group for “asspiring” human dildo holsters would be more helpful for the object of the story.
