One more crack out of you…

November 9, 2009

First, I want to thank all you doctors for coming to this Humiliation Committee meeting to discuss our problem today. I know it’s a Thursday, so you should be enjoying a four-day weekend, as usual.

But it has come to our attention that the good old-fashioned butt check – and you all know what that involves – just doesn’t seem as demeaning and degrading as it used to.

I don’t know, maybe the lubricant got too good and it’s over too quickly. Maybe guys are just getting used to it. Heck, maybe we’re making it too much fun.

Anyway, what the committee has come up with is, we’re now going to have a nurse take PHOTOS of the procedure, just to turn up the mortification a notch or two.

What? Herb, that’s a BRILLIANT improvement! Yes, we COULD shoot video of it and post it on YouTube!

So we’ll start next week. Hah! These poor saps don’t know DEMEANING of the word Humiliation yet! Get it? Demeaning? I swear, I should be doing stand-up!

Is this Army by conscription or all volunteer?
Inquiring minds want to know, because this is the worst push up drill ever.

My favourite part is how you can see the thumbs delicately probing the anus in the close up picture.

What a turn on!

While supposedly espousing a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, the Military employs trickery when determining who is straight and who is not.

Hey! What are they Lookin’ for in the butt crack?

Maybe to see that they don’t have any anal warts or other abnormalities ; bad health.

Well, it’s a good thing I can get pretty much any meds I need on the open market, ’cause I am definitely going to have to up my dosage.

For Pete’s sake Blog Guy, this is just, just…. Why is it the women don’t seem to have a problem with this, and even find it humorous? C’mon ladies, don’t encourage him!

the bit I find the most interesting is the fact the examiner’s not wearing gloves, so that should make for interesting situations once he breaks for lunch, coffee, cigarettes or whatever else!

Or is it we got it all wrong and this is the next big thing to help athletes compete effectively for the 100 m dash? I’d say it looks that way from the patients’ position…

On second thoughts, this pic is just too wrong on so many levels….

You know, that K. West comment was funny. I just did NOT want to go there……

Just to paraphrase Ron White, the Blue Collar Comedian, “Once you’ve seen one guy naked, you want to see the see the rest…”

Not QUITE sure I agree with you Catherine… There are limits to which guys we would like to see naked…

The blog made me think “heh.”

The K. West comment made me snort loud enough to disturb coworkers.

See, that’s the differences between men and women. Again, as Ron White said, “A 60 year old woman approached him at the strip club, and she asked “Do you want to see me naked?”

He replied, “Yeah I do. Now roll them up and put ‘em away…”
