Don’t Be A Dick Part Two, Plus: COTW!

That’s right, it’s another PSA! Judging by a few of the YouTube comments, this one was totally necessary.

COTW after the jump!

This week we have two winners. TWO! And they’re both about loooove and sex and other scandalous topics.

First up is karatex:

Logically, it stands to reasons that our orgasms should be better, or at the very least, longer. Christians having orgasms cry out, “Oh, God!” while atheists cry out, “Oh, nobody!” (twice the syllables), or even “Oh, reason-backed-by-observation-and-verified-using-the-scientific-method!”

And that’s a mighty fine orgasm, indeed.

Mighty fine, indeed!

Second we have the similarly-named but different scottrx:

My soon-to-be husband and I will be getting “gay married” in October. Honestly, it hadn’t ever occured to either of us that the name change should be something to consider. It still isn’t, but it seems like people keep asking which last name we are going to take. I quickly got fed up with everybody’s expectations, so I tell people we are changing our last name to “Amber-Thiessen”. My parents are not amused, and more than a little concerned. Ha!

Who wouldn’t want that last name?

HA CHA CHA. Happy Friday everyone!

  1. I had a bad back, and a colleague noticed that I was hobbling around the office, and he offered to pray for me. I said that I appreciated the concern, but I’d probably be OK. I reckon he must have prayed for me anyway, because it cleared up in a couple of days.

    I turned down the offer of sex too.

  2. Next time someone implies that they want to have sex with me, I’m going to look into an imaginary camera and say “Well alright!” exactly like that guy just did. It’ll ruin the moment, but it’ll be worth it.

  3. Except in the UK, I don’t think people often use the term “You’re a dick”. More likely to use that happy, uniquely British term “wanker”.

    BTW I see charlieisreallycoollike has been corrupted by this website. So much for the young staying innocent.

  4. Well, when my girlfriend orgasms she certainly does not thank “nobody”, but in fact uses my name explicitly.

    But if an atheist woman is given an orgasm by a devout believer, does she exclaim “oh god” so as not to be thought of as a dick?

  5. @tiberious: But if an atheist woman is given an orgasm by a devout believer, does she exclaim “oh god” so as not to be thought of as a dick?

    Judging by the number of recent outings of prominent theist homophobes, the addition of a dick might not but completely unwelcome.

    I’m just saying.

  6. I’m getting ‘opposite married’ next year and haven’t had anyone ask about our last names. Maybe they just assume that she will take my name (we plan on not changing our names).

  7. I like these PSAs, and think they’re funny, but there’s just something about them that bothers me. I think it’s the glurge. Not glurge like syrupy sweet, but glurge like unintended meaning.

    Basically, it says to me, don’t be nice because it’s good to be nice; be nice because you’ll get something out of it, be it money or sex.

    I’m not sure how serious these are supposed to be. Just an FYI.

  8. @BlackCat: If that’s the message, then it’s a bad message. In this situation, you’re actually more actually likely to get sex if you’re not nice:

    Girl: I heard your mother is Ill again. I’ll be praying for you

    Bloke: Why don’t you do something useful!

    (bloke storms off)

    Bloke’s friend: Don’t mind him, since his mum was ill, he’s completely lost his faith.

    Girl: That’s terrible. Is there anything I can do?

    Bloke’s friend: Did I tell you about his fetish for girls wearing rubber nun outfits?
