Was That A Soccer Game, Or What?

Blood, mayhem, aggression, speed, defense…USA 2, Germany 0.  Should have gone to a bar for the wall-sized TV.

Found Summer Photo: Beauty Summer School

Only a few weeks of summer left–I can feel it slipping through my fingers, softly like velvet rope.  I should have a smart comment here, but I just don’t know what to say about this one:

Like A Fish Needs A Bicycle…

Distinguished, notable feminists Gloria Steinem, Irina Dunn, and Flo Kennedy have alternately been credited with popularizing the phrase, “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.”  While I’m all about feminism, living in a house full of women I have sometimes taken pause to wonder if said fish ought not to be the one called to relocate spiders, fix leaking pipes, and remove bloody piles of rodent parts left by the cats as tribute on the back porch?  I have learned, in my maturity, to defer to Tennyson:

“Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.”

A recently discovered image, however, has led me to question this whole man/fish/bicycle tricotomy.  I’m afraid I really don’t know what the hell to make of it.

Irradiated Babes: Ms. TSA Pin-Up Calendar?

X-Ray Porn!  This was apparently a short-lived interwebs sensation in 2010, but I missed it and I bet many of you missed it too.

I know!  Smokin’ hot, right?  I mean, damn! Are you as turned on as I am right now?

Or not. I’m struck by how titillating these images are not.  There’s a seed for an excellent essay on objectification here, but I’m opting to see it as humorous.

But, all that aside, what the hell is it about? A friend sent me the following, incredulous link, which pretty much sums up my initial bemusement and curiosity.

But a search offered clarity.

This Exists: X-Ray Pin-up Calendar [Pics]

Yes, this really was an actual calendar and no, the TSA was not actually involved.  It was a promotional tool for a medical equipment company.  And no actual models were harmed in the making of this calendar.

Best Damned Quotes: Elmo Phillips

spank1

I missed my regular “best damned quotes” entry yesterday–I’m very, very sorry.

” You don’t appreciate a lot of stuff in school until you get older. Little things like being spanked every day by a middle-aged woman. Stuff you pay good money for in later life.”
–Elmo Phillips
