A man goes to eat at a Thai restaurant. He asks for the specials. The waitress says "Red prik" - the man begins to snicker - "hung wang, yumkok bang" - the guy struggles to keep in his laughter - "plad rad prik and lik dat twat."

Redfaced and about to burst, he says "I'll have the pad thai."

"Would you like anything to drink?" the waitress asks.

"I'll have a ginger ale."

The waitress bursts into laughter, "that sounds like something naughty in Thai!"

pute kisses like a man: This text is now purple: Christian Bale: Ronnie Tiajuana: pute kisses like a man: someday the internet people are going to realize that gene masseth is not funny. you have to be a slack jawed, spit drooling yokel just to pronounce the stupid name in a manner that could remotely be considered a joke before pre-schoolers.

(insert thatsthejoke.jpg here)

In the snow article shown above, Gene Masseth is one of the guys shoveling. (presumably his real name)
The story indicates the second man was named "Heywood Jablome" (a fake name).

A fark meme has sprung up around people laughing at the name "Gene Masseth", which wasn't the joke name. This is supposedly clever for ironic reasons or some such, but has mostly become tiresome.

well, the internet has two possible explanations:

the one, I'm the fool for thinking it's a crappy joke

the other, if you have a strong north dakota accent, it's supposed to sound like you're saying you ejaculated on yourself.

/ starting to think the former answer is correct, and the person who came up with the accent answer either fell for the trap, like me, or is a really clever troll


Oh, I was there for that one. The first answer is correct, and the person who came up with the accent answer was trying to keep the ball rolling. I personally didn't get a goddamn thing done that day.

This just in. A fistfight is in progress in downtown Springfield. Early reports indicate, and this is very preliminary, that one of the fighters is a giant lizard...

Do we have a source on this?... Uh huh... "a bunch of drunken frat boys." All right, I could use some names. "I.P. Freeley..."

The NAMES of the students is what has Cornell U concerned? I'd be worried that theya re producing vaccous, self-absorbed idiots capabale of articulating the following:
""You could have this really amazing night, but if you didn't get a picture, it's like it didn't happen," said Ms. Parr, 22, a senior at Gettysburg, whose friends often order designer outfits from the Rent the Runway Web site because incessant documenting makes wearing anything more than twice taboo. "It's crazy how much pictures consume our lives. Everyone knows how to pose and how to hold your arm and which way is most flattering, and everyone wants the picture taken with their phone."
