balloons with beautiful women

From a comment by rimrunner on this post at customers_suck:

Several years ago I was at a strip club in Seattle with some friends, when the Seafair Clowns came in.

Read that again. No, you didn't read it wrong.

The only sight more disturbing than a clown getting a lap dance is a clown getting a lap dance from two dancers at once. Afterward the dancers were all walking around with obscene balloon animals the clowns had made for them. That was a little odd, too.

I pretty much stopped going to strip clubs after that, because I don't think I'll ever see anything that could top it. If I could, I don't think I WANT to see it.

 And you know they all arrived in the same car...

Your Java-fu is strong....

zdashamber might just be on to something....

Actually, what I really want to know is why there aren't stave-mice. Who wouldn't want to surf the internet while standing solemnly in a dojo making fine manipulations with a long stick? Whose heart does not thrill at the thought of beating the crap out of intruding ninjas with one's mouse? "brb - ninjas"

Before I found pro_scurvy, I thought I was the only one who felt this way about vitamin C. I tried to hide my feelings; I always had OJ for breakfast, just to feel "normal". Then I discovered a group of people who showed me that scurvy was natural and beautiful, that a full set of teeth and unblemished gums was just an impossible ideal set by the Hollywood elite. These people accepted me for who I am. They support me and my decision to starve my body of nutrients in any way I see fit. I won't say it hasn't been a long hard road, but whenever I backslide and have lemon with my tea, pro_scurvy has always forgiven me and comforted me with the knowledge that tomorrow is another day. All I have to do is forgive myself and vow to be strong in the face of ascorbic acid.

The Dark Side of Astrological Matchmaking

Comes to us from elorie:

Reasons Why You Should Never Date...(Or, My Own Version of Darkside Astrology) Aries. Empathy, what empathy? Huh? Why did that hurt your feelings?

..a Taurus. It's their stuff. It will always be their stuff. You can be married ten years and they will be able to tell you which books and CDs are yours and which ones are theirs. They might, however, forget your birthday.

..a Gemini. You will never get a word in edgewise again.

..a Cancer. Moods that rival Scorpio's, but less sexy. Worrywarts.

..a Leo. It's the movie of their life, and you are in the supporting role. They can be gracious as long as you acknowledge this eternal truth.

..a Virgo. Obsessive compulsion is not a replacement for a personality.

..a Libra. As long as you don't really care if they never, ever, ever make up their minds about anything, you should be fine. Unless the way they also flit from one lover to the next bothers you...

..a Scorpio. They sulk, hold grudges, and are vindictive. The sign most likely to become a stalker. But, sexy.

..a Sagittarius. They're iconoclasts, see? Silly mundane rules were not meant for such as they. They're rebels. This means they will never, ever show up on time for a date.

..a Capricorn. There are ways that Things Are Done, and ways that they are Not Done. And the Capricorn knows what they are. And woe betide you if you don't. Tardiness drives them insane. However, they do not have the Virgo's saving grace of neatness.

Sagittarius and Capricorn are the Zodiac's "Marriage Made in Hell" Aquarius. Deep down, they think of you as an experiment.

..a Pisces. Because they are batshit crazy.

The comments on the post are just as amusing.

He's a squid! He fights crime!

eruthros and sineala had a snow day. IM Hilarity ensued.

eruthros: Squid are, like, inherently funny.
sineala: Hey, they are! Squid! Heh. That's cool.
eruthros: That's why the HP Giant Squid is EXTRA funny.
eruthros: He's a GIANT. SQUID.
eruthros: Squid! Underwater life-saving squid!
sineala: Duuude. You know, that would totally be a good crime drama setup. Well, a funny one, anyway.
eruthros: *g* Word.
eruthros: That could be the theme song. "Squid! Underwater life-saving SQUIIID!"

Tikistitch finally got to see The Aviator. If you must see it, bring plenty of Kleenex. Because you'll need them for the next several hours to grip the bathroom doorknob, shake hands, grip milk bottles, etc.

I can see it now...."for crimes numerous and destructive in nature.....impersonating a cleric of Tempus, refusing to believe that your neighbors are not Uruk-Hai, listening to: Slipknot 47, Still Traumatized Because we Grew up in Iowa too loud and causing the heart attack deaths of 15 of the other old farts in the nursing home, for refusing to stop sleeping with 25 year old super models even after they die from chloroform overdose, for selling you own blood in vials as a Viagra substitute...." the list could be endless!

In which debchan is philosophical:
Yesterday I actually opened Semagic and composed a long entry, but didn't post because it was boring. Here's a brief recap:

Work, blah blah blah.

Japanese, blah blah blah.

Fannish ennui, blah blah blah.

Birthday, blah blah... wait. CAKE!

My life is one long series of blah with brief intervals of cake.

In which debchan is disturbing:
Today, a guy with a strong Kentucky accent came in. He sounded a lot like Gomer Pyle. I started thinking about Gomer Pyle (the show) and found myself wondering if there was Gomer Pyle slash. Because, all the standard slash ingredients are there. Gomer's sweet devotion to his Sarge, despite the way Sarge always yelled at him, Sarge's obsession with where Gomer was and what he was doing. It could happen. One day Gomer might notice something different in the way Sarge shouted, "Pyle!" And he'd follow Sarge back to a quiet corner of the motor pool and Sarge would say that every time he yelled at Gomer it was only because he didn't know how to express his secret and forbidden love, and Gomer would say, "Shazam!" or possibly, "I know." And they'd kiss and have sex, and Gomer for sure would say, "Shazam!" but Sarge would find it strangely endearing.

And then I realized that I was kind of creepy. Yet I post anyway.

I wanted to quote the whole thing, but...

An excerpt from the wonderfully acerbic laguera25's post-Oscar-watching journal entry, re: Sean Penn:

Sean Penn, you are a wonderful actor, and I have enjoyed the bulk of your recent work. However, I must respectfully request that you remove the stick from betwixt your butt cheeks and loosen your underwear. Winning an Oscar does not mean you must morph into a self-important, anal-retentive blowhard or Susan Sarandon. You can laugh; it's permissible under the Geneva Convention, I swear. Chris Rock was joking, and Jude Law, while a mediocre talent, is a big boy. The constant hypertension is going to kill you.

You should read the rest of it, too.

From 'The Secret Diary of the Phantom of the Opera' by qween_tartii:

Show was a rather marvellous success, except that stupid drip Raoul (Raoul! What kind of a bloody name is that, it sounds like a noise you make when you’re throwing up for crying out loud) was not only sitting in my box but kept making gooey eyes at Christine all the way through. It nearly made me sick! Yep, am definitely gonna have to off him. It’s not that I enjoy killing people, really it isn’t – people just keep popping up who need to be killed! I find it quite traumatising, to be really honest.


Off to check mail now.

GAHHH! No Ikea catalogue, just another bloody letter from the Extreme Makeover people. When are they going to get it through their heads that I don’t want to be on their stupid show??!!!

Here's the rest. It's rather long, but quite hilarious.

Teenage zombie writers of the world, beware.

A George Rogers Clark High School junior arrested Tuesday for making terrorist threats told LEX 18 News Thursday that the "writings" that got him arrested are being taken out of context.

Winchester police say William Poole, 18, was taken into custody Tuesday morning. Investigators say they discovered materials at Poole's home that outline possible acts of violence aimed at students, teachers, and police.

Poole told LEX 18 that the whole incident is a big misunderstanding. He claims that what his grandparents found in his journal and turned into police was a short story he wrote for English class.

"My story is based on fiction," said Poole, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. "It's a fake story. I made it up. I've been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies."

In response to this post on metaquotes, we have this thread, wherein the following discourse takes place.

The background being that the post is the one about astrologic dating types, and the line was Gemini. You will never get a word in edgewise again.

To which yours truly replied, As a Gemini myself, I have to say,--


And the deeply amusing cosmorific answered: As a fellow Gemini, I have to ask: shouldn't there be about 10,000 more words in that statement?

ceruleanst had this to say in response to this thread in mock_the_stupid:

Okay, so far that's "just cheer up" for the clinically depressed, "just try it" for food allergies, "hey, wake up" for chronic fatigue, "why don't you just quit" for addictions, and "you really should calm down" for a panic attack. We could stock a whole pharmacy with platitudes instead of all those expensive drugs. All-purpose "snap out of it" could be sold over the counter.

Because we ran the race Sunday morning, Anne and I dedided not to go to any parties we weren't invited to, and just watch at home in HD. (Here's a fun fact about me: I am a complete sucker for HD. I have found myself watching the most dreadful tripe just because it's in HD. But when something I actuallyenjoy is in HD, I'm in Heaven.

lorriejharris from a post here about Customers.. some things never change

Most of you know I work in a Customer Service Call Center. Customer Service Call Centers aren’t new but have, in fact, been around for millions of years. Recently, archeologists made a find in a cave in western Illinois that they believe to have been a prehistoric Customer Service/Tech Support Center. After translating the cave drawings, the archeologists discovered what a typical call was like for the Prehistoric Customer Service Rep…
