Sexiest Comment o’ the Week Ever? PERHAPS!

There were tons of nominations for Comment o’ the Week, and they ALL had to do with sex. All of them. (Feign surprise HERE: 0_o ) Oh, you people.

Since sexy jokes are always my favorite, it was really difficult to choose a winner. I think I laughed all the way through the Because Only the Priest Can Touch Me There thread, in which Sethmanpio and Augustus were nominated. I nearly gave the win to Augustus right there, but realized that I was being biased by his adorable avatar.
Brian’s a Wild Downer also nearly won thanks to this post, in which he makes bestiality sound downright pleasant. However! The winner this week not only referenced male genitalia, but he also managed to work in an in-joke from the Skepchick Drink Contest. Here it is, in answer to Elyse’s questions, “What is the most ridiculous thing that ever existed on Earth? What was God’s purpose for that thing?”

The Kiwi. God needed something in nature to look like a tree full of scrotums….hairy, sweaty scrotums that make people feel uncomfortable. The idea was that if he could disquise their tangy interior with a skin that looks like the chin of “that guy” you knew in grade 9 who tried to grow a chin-beard before puberty would let him, then he could train people to like oral sex.

Cause you know, God has got to get some of that poon-flavored tang.

I’ll never eat a kiwi in the same way again.

Congrats, Some Canadian Skeptic! You win these creepy fruit man paintings. Try to figure out what the pickle represents in the first one. Go on, try.

  1. That comment confused me when I first read it, but then I remembered that Americans (an apparently Canadians) call kiwifruit ‘kiwis’. Down here a kiwi is a bird, and an endangered one at that so telling New Zealanders that you enjoy eating kiwis will get you a very odd look.

    Plus if I want to be super-pedantic (and lets face it, I do) kiwi is a Maori word, and Maori doesn’t do plurals, so the plural of kiwi is kiwi.

  2. @sethmanapio:

    I will admit that context crossed my mind during one of the readings. ;)

    And in a way, some of the wording of the ‘Ka Mate’ Haka used by the All Blacks (NZ rugby team) links in with it.

    Nāna i tiki mai whakawhiti te rā

    This is the hairy man
    Who caused the sun to shine again for me

  3. I first thought “oh come on, just leaving off something descriptive like ‘fruit’ at the end can’t make it that hard to tell apart multiple meanings of a word, context people!” then I thought about how baffled I’d be if someone was calling strawberries straw. Either way, I don’t get people fussing about dialects, they’re fun to learn, give some perspective on the language you speak, and aren’t exactly complicated.
