Atomic Spunk: midget porn csb...
I was waiting in line at the Matterhorn in Disneyland with my wife and daughter when Bridget the Midget pulled up to the front of the line with some sleazy-looking dude. She was able to bypass the long line because she was riding a mobility scooter. She can walk, but I guess she gets one of those scooters because with the size of her legs, it must be tough to walk the kind of distances you need to at Disneyland.

Anyway, I started to say, "Hey! That's..." then I caught myself and stopped talking. My wife asked, "Who are you talking about?" I just said, "Never mind." If I had told her who Bridget was, it would have brought up a lot of really uncomfortable questions, especially in front of my daughter.


And your early death. She doesn't read fark threads, does she?

I have a collection of t-shirts with humorus (subjective) but rather vulgar sayings and or images. I wear them to work under my normal shirt and tie. Nobody sees them, few know of them.
Simple, perhaps stupid. But it helps pick me up to think of the shirt and how it fits in with a moment of stress.

I wonder if the people coming to the defense of these midgets would come to the defense of overly tall people?

I doubt they would despite the fact that we overly tall ( I don't mean you wannabe 6'5" short people) get made fun of and have an equal if not harder time finding a way to fit.  They can at least wear kids clothes.

also it could just be a by product of my height but I have a recurring nightmare that deals with midgets.

There is a large group of them chasing me in the fashion that they run, that sort of waddle, anyways they are chasing me as they want to steal my pants which will give them my height or so they think.  My only chance of escape is to find a convertible with the top down so I can just step in without opening the door.  If I open the door they can get in but with the top down the doors stay locked and I can get in with ease.

The nightmare makes perfect sense while I am reliving the horror but no so much when I present it to people.  Maybe they are midget sympathizers...

Many many years ago I owned that shirt.  Just shortly after college, still hanging out at college parties pretending I wasn't on the wrong side of the slope towards 30 with no job plan.  I'm hanging out at the table with the drinks and a female voice from behind me says, "hey, pass me a beer."  I grab one, turn around.....and look down.  I've had enough to drink to know I need to be careful what I say, but not enough to be bullet proof.  The result:  I can think of absolutely no way out of this predicament and just stand there.  We stare at each other in silence for a few seconds.  She's clearly pissed and with every passing moment getting more so.  10 seconds and my mind is an absolute blank.  Finally, she spins around and stalks off.

I got rid of the shirt after that.

obamadidcoke: Good, maybe we can get along without publicly humiliating people for a medical condition.

/You dirty nasty fat-bodies are still fair game though


A midget is just someone below an arbitrary height. And, while dwarfism is a medical condition, how is it humiliating to acknowledge it? Is it humiliating to refer to someone with diabetes as a diabetic? Then how is it humiliating to refer to someone with dwarfism as a dwarf?

Were I of excessively short stature, I'd be pissed at the term "little people".  It sounds just really condescending and dehumanizing.  Not sure what I'd like but that term always struck me as one of the worst.

They sound more than a little offended. I guess the humor went over their heads.
I wanted to include more puns, but I'm coming up short.

Unrelated, but I am somewhat disturbed by the popup I just got advertising 'tax free' shipments to NY. Why does Cafe Press know that...

Krieghund: A major online retailer is taking a big step towards acknowledging the rights of little people by removing midget-themed products.

If something offends you, you have a right to biatch about it, you have a right to protest it, and you have a right to not buy anything from a company that supports products you don't like.

But no one has the *right* to not be offended.

I'm all for companies being PC. I think it makes good sense for any kind of major business. They would lose more from bad publicity than they would make selling the product.
But it's about making money, it isn't about rights.


I was wondering what midget rights were being violated.

I don't blame her.  I'd ask for one too - just in case all you randy groomsmen can't keep a secret and the bride kills the whole idea, I'd want to keep something for my trouble.

Quaker: I'm of average height so maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about, but I always felt like the term "little people" was more demeaning than "midget".

Also, this.


It's belittling I agree...

If we start treating midgets like people and giving them equal rights, IT WILL BE THE END OF CIVILIZATION! They are a dirty and unwashed race with no redeeming qualities! They will roam the countryside killing our caddle, and, rapeing our women, or you know humping their legs. This menace must be stop, and we of the GOP will stop it!
