I'm not falling for that again, NASA.

Show me your penis once, shame on you. Show me your penis twice, shame on me.

Those are balls.

That is almost certainly a streetlight.

cannotsuggestaname: why do you know what your mom's vagina looks like?


1) My responses were based on this.
2) In light of the above, I was going for comedic effect.
3) Having to now explain the joke, takes some of effect away.
4) I'm the second of seven kids. My parents were hippies (read, home birth with a midwife). Starting with the kid after me, I had a job during child delivery that all but required me to stare at my mom's hooha for hours, as the midwife made it seem that if I didn't do my job the baby would die (in retrospect, giving the kids "important" jobs was just her way of distracting the rest of the kids).

At *LEAST* once.

Why is the CNN Fark logo now blue on black? Or is there something wrong with my computer?

Is it that citiesatnight link? That one's blockd at work and the NASA one doesn't seem to be it.

Not necessarily.

The streetlight reference should have been referenced in the post that immediately precedes the second one, not the third post.

There are not enough images in the GIS for "Nope" that adequately express...  Is it possible to divide "Nope" by zero?

"Without the help of citizens, it is almost impossible to use these images scientifically. Algorithms cannot distinguish between stars, cities and other objects, such as the moon. Humans are much more efficient for complex image analysis," he said.

Time for NASA to write some new algorithims; obviously, instead of using free slave labor from the citizens. Almost scientifically impossible? Like landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth; the most advanced super computers in existence can be built with unskilled labor.

In that case, perhaps you should've said your father's dongle. What you made a joke about is called the Father card, and that big thing dangling down between Big Daddy Pharaoh's flat two-toed feet  ...

Comedic effect is most effective when one gets a "shock". That is, when the joke makes the recipient have an unexpected experience, when the joke takes a turn that the recipient never even knew was there.

"Why'd the chicken cross the road? Because it was being chased by a coyote." Not funny, because that's a completely reasonable reason for a chicken to cross a road.

"Why'd the chicken cross the road? Because it was there." Slightly funny, as it wasn't a reason that most folks would consider.

"Why'd the pervert cross the road? Because his dick was stuck in the chicken." More funny, as the scenario is less expected.

Making a dick joke where there's a big picture of a dick, while it may be the height of humor to the guys down at Sigma Phi Epsilon, isn't really that funny. Making a joke about your mom's vagina while referring to "The Father Card"? Well, now it's even less funny that I've had to explain it.

Not that it was that great to begin with.

Have we gotten the reason behind the CNN funky logo yet? I've seen theories but the 'They don't want Drew using their logo w/out permission' makes the most sense to me.
