CapeFearCadaver: I was talking about the chick who wrote the letter.


Sure, that's what you say now.

Do people still believe those letters are real?

Real peoples problems are boring as fark and hard to give good advice to. No one would read them. They have to make them interesting and easy to give advice for so they make them up.

The Goddamn Batman: super_grass: I think the Dear Abby advice columnists have started sending themselves prank questions. This shiat is starting to get cray.

Write one crazy question. Write the craziest question you know.




That's what Dan Savage is for.

PluckYew: minoridiot: So she has been with him since she was 26 and he was 50?

That's how long they've been married.  They've probably been together longer.

She should look at his previous relationships and take note.


I am incorrect.  My reading comprehension of this article:  F

Are you claiming that letters written by professional wrestlers standing on AstroTurf while eating Velveeta and margarine sandwiches are somehow fake?

In my school days -- not that I ever did -- fraternities would try to get phony letters planted in her column. Most were obvious but some slipped through.

36 married to a 60 year old? What are you complaining about Ms. Golddigger. Let him cheat, get the evidence, then take 50 to 75% of his stuff. Its easier than waiting another deacde or two for him to die and get 100% of his stuff.

brantgoose: Gulper Eel: as soon as he becomes an alcoholic big game hunting novelist and then kills himself

Alcoholic? I can do that.
Big game hunting? I'm the go-to guy for whacking spiders around the house. My four cats handle the rest.
Novelist? Ahem. I do post rather a lot on Fark.
Then kills himself? I'll take "then" to mean "some time nine or ten decades from now unless the secret of immortality is discovered".

I can has Elizabeth Banks now?

No, you can't.

Ernest Hemingway was a self-hating homosexual. That may be one reason he killed himself and also a driving force behind his macho persona.

You have to buy the whole hog.


That's a quaint piece of 70's pop-psy that no one buys into any more.
His undiagnosed bipolar-ism explains all the freaky deaky behavior.

Truman Capote reportedly called Ernest Hemingway "the greatest old closet queen ever to come down the pike" (Conversation with Robert Jennings in 1968 - hemingway wore dresses)

There has been speculation that Ernest Heminway and F. Scott Fitzgerald were gay lovers.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife, Zelda Fitzgerald, said that Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald behaved like lovers.

During Hemingway's life, "rumors persisted of a night when Hemingway madeadvances on Robert McAlmon. McAlmon claimed Hemingway treated him like he 'was Vicky, the buxom, tough, and beautiful tart of the cabaret'"

socodog: Install open marriage. You're gonna fark a lot of dudes. He'll change his mind pretty quickly.


Don't kill the fantasy that the media has created for men, which is that they are entitled to bang supermodels and that women OTHER than their wives want them any more than their wives do.

James Rieper: You have to buy the whole hog.

Possibly the worst euphamism ever.


Had to have my dog euphamised a couple weeks ago.
