|You know, like the newsletter from NAMFLA |
(North America Man-Fish Love Association)
you pretty much know what you're getting into. Most of you are regulars, some from the get-go in 2009 (like Pat and the Cat, those poor bastards) and some roped in from the various A-Z Challenges throughout the year (and for that, I thank you Arlee Bird!).
Through it all, you've seen your share of probably questionable topics, many from the gutter....
|"Penwasser's still down there, right?"|
and many which don't share your world view.
|"I think he's talking about us again."|
|"Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I could go for a Butterfinger Blizzard."|
So it was yesterday, when I posted the below:
|I'd get one of these, but they never stay in my yard.|
NOTE: they may not strike YOU as wildly funny, though. Well, look at you with your mental health and everything.
|Like what Ken uses before a date with Barbie.|
Yeah, I can be that silly.
When I posted the Wandering Jew picture, I was initially worried that someone may take it in an anti-Semitic fashion. Not my intent.
In fact, I wish it was a "Wandering Methodist" instead.
But since comedy, like Rosie O'Donnell in a thong or naked Whoopi Goldberg, isn't pretty, I went ahead.
Within minutes, though, I got this...
|Despite it all, like Grandma, this guy is comedy gold|
However, I worried that some other person in my Facebook orbit (not all as hip and cool as you) may think I was making a "Jewish Jibe."
NOTE: this may sound like a cliche in a "some of my best friends are black" kinda way, but the first Mrs. Penwasser was Jewish. Luckily for her, she came to her senses and dumped me like a week-old plate of gefilte fish.
So, I deleted it.
The moral of the story is to be conscious of your surroundings and don't post anything which may be misconstrued. I don't give a tinker's fart about someone being "butt hurt," but I am genuinely concerned that I don't unintentionally hurt someone's feelings.
Now, before you think I've gone all Alan Alda, Phil Donahue, or that kid in his jammies on you, never fear. I know you know me. Penwasser Place will remain the same.
|"Well, that's just great! |
I guess this means no little marshmallows for my cocoa!"
And, incidentally, my Facebook won't change all that much.
After all, I just posted a note about how I received an "Erect On Demand" email.
How's that for a tease to be a follower?
