Girls Hath Run Amok Video! Plus, COTW!

I turned our mock Elizabethan Girls Gone Wild ad from this week’s Curiosity Aroused into a YouTube video! Some appropriate comments o’ the week follow after the jump.

That’s right, this week’s COTW is all about spank material. When Bug_Girl asked you to name a Patron Saint for your favorite activity and describe what your celebration would be like, davew knocked it out of the park in the first comment:

St. Onan.

I think the rest of the questions answer themselves.

Runner-up goes to Displaced Northerner, who told a great story in response to Amanda’s quickie about vajanger:

The funniest thing I’ve ever heard a patient say had to do with fibroids. When I saw the fibroids while ultrasounding her, I pointed them out and started answering her questions. I mentioned that fibroids were more common in African American women and she said (this is a direct quote), “I’m not trying to be funny, but do you think that’s because our men’s penises are so big?” I consider my crowning achievement in life the fact that I did not laugh out loud. When I said I would be skeptical of that, she asked if anyone had every done a study to test that and suggested that I should do the research- she was willing to be a subject.

I’m not sure if I’m more inclined to believe the large penis theory or the angry vagina theory. I’ll defer to my tried and true experience: when in doubt, blame the penis.

  1. @IBY: Damn it, I don’t get the joke of the COTW!

    In catholic school we were taught the name Onanism for the sin of masturbation. You can look up Onan in wikipedia. Interestingly enough the crime for which he was killed had more to do with bad aim than self pleasuring.
