I've been spending a lot of time on deal forums and sites, and while there have been some really great posts, there are also plenty of others that just make you wonder. One recent item that someone felt the need to share was the fact that deepdiscount.com is selling a fist-shaped, vibrating massager for $2. Talk about getting something for the person who already has everything. Just take a look at this thing:
My favorite though is the description.
This fist-shaped vibrating massager features an angled design that makes it easy to scratch those hard-to-reach itches.
*snicker* Ya, I'm sure there are plenty of women out there who know just how hard it is to scratch the itch. It also helps that the fist looks like it belongs to a white-gloved Mickey Mouse. It might be a niche sort of fetish, but I'm sure anyone out there who has ever fantasized about being fisted by Mickey Mouse is going to have a merry christmas.
In other realms of stupid, today (well, friday to be exact) is/was 'Day without a Gay'. This particular chunk of stupidity was encouraging people to not go into work and instead 'Call In Gay'. While the campaign is an exercise in idiocy, I do really like the idea that there were people out there calling into work because of it.
'Umm, I'm afraid I can't make it to work today. I'm feeling a bit Homo. It'll probably pass over the weekend and I'll be back on Monday.'
I'm not sure that equating homosexuality with a 24-hour stomach flu was the greatest idea in the world. That's not the best part though. I was looking at some news articles reporting about the general failure of the event when I ran across the greatest headline ever.
Gays down tools in protests against same-sex wedding ban
You just know whoever came up with that had a good snicker over it. Hell, I'm sure the entire protest might have had more success if they did just have gays down tools over it. More people might have participated anyway.
