Exploding wieners, run for cover!

August 22, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m afraid this suicide bomb trend is spreading, and it scares me.

Me too. There are way too many kinds of explosive gadgets. I saw this photo of a woman wearing a device made of an alarm clock and sausages.

Sausages? They don’t even explode, do they?

Sure. In many parts of the world they’re also called bangers.

But if you look at the real caption, you’ll see she’s actually protesting on the right side of an issue.

Maybe, but she could still have terrorist links…

Links? LINKS? I get it, Blog Guy. You’ve hit rock bottom.

I know, but it’s a Saturday in August. So if you want frank news in the wurst way, look no furter….

Is she even old enough to make wieners explode?

And who invented a jean skirt with a zippered flap in the front?

(Please note that I’m not necessarily against the zippered flap).

“Afghan authorities passed a law allowing men to deny their wives food if they refuse to obey their husbands’ sexual demands.”

Great Idea!

At the risk of sounding sexist… I’d love to meet this beautiful woman’s sexual demands at the risk of not being fed.

I wondered what happened to Lorena Bobbit.
