What Would People Think?

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

Um, I Appreciate You're Trying, But.....

Italy's "most famous porn star", Cicciolina, recently offered herself to Osama Bin Laden if he'll just give up that whole terrorism thing. She (?) actually said the following quote: "My breasts have only ever helped people while Bin Laden has killed thousands of innocent victims."

Um.....Cicciolina......I appreciate that you're trying.......but......well......

Words fail me.

  • That's awesome. Make love, not war... sad that she isn't exactly attractive. Maybe it's just a sucky picture.

  • "Maybe it's just a sucky picture"

    Reminds me of an exchange from the TV Show Friends:

    [They are watching an old high school video and one of the characters was significantly fatter in high school than she is now.]

    "Oh, come on. The camera adds 10 pounds."

    "What, were there, like, 5 cameras on you?"

  • In defense of porn stars (particulary foreign ones), I don't think above neck level really matters very much.

    I don't think it'll work, though. The damn fool thinks he's getting 40 virgins or whatever once he gets to heaven.

    I remember that "Friends" episode.

  • now if Mrs Jameson were to offer, he should consider trading up from those virgins. Sex with virgins would just be so boring. They wouldn't know how to do anything and keep asking ya questions "Is this how I do it?" "No baby, the fact that you can talk should be a big f*#@!'n clue that ya ain't doing it right!!"

  • Ah! Family blog! Family blog!

    Okay, so I realize that I invited that last comment by blogging about porn stars. And I will not delete it on principle, because I do not believe in censorship.

    But some of my readers are more...sensitive than others. If they are frightened off by the (very) occasional curse word or liberal opinion, then they shouldn't be reading this blog.

    But I don't want to alienate people who are turned off by more....coarse material. Like OWM's comment. I'd like to recieve the readership and comments of my more conservative freinds and acquaintances....and my unbelievably sweet 13-year-old future sister-in-law.

    So please, out of courtesy, I'm asking my regular commenters to refrain from the detailed/explicitly sexual when commenting on this blog.

    Again, this time it's clearly my fault.

  • To explain where I'm drawing the (entirely voluntary) line, I think most of OWM's comment was fine. But the quotes were a bit much.

    And, as I said, the line I'm drawing is entirely voluntary. I don't believe in censorship, so I will not delete your comments. The only enforcement is your own sense of courtesy toward others whose sensibilities differ from your own. (There's a time and a place for everything.)

  • alright, I'll admit, my bad. I didn't know you had younger folks reading this and next time I'll hold back. Know I know, and knowing is half the battle. To all the children and younger generation that read this. Sex is bad m'kay(at least intil you're married)

  • and blogs should have an edit button. I can't spell for *enter something, anything*.

  • OWM - do you have some sort of technology that lets you know when comments have been added to blogs you read?

    I mean, I know my friend Jacob can check when new posts have been added to his 1 million favorite blogs, but your response time is astounding!

    btw....Mike tells me you were semi-pissed (see what I mean about the occasional cursing?) that I figured out your identity. "Neener, neener," I always say.

    By Blogger Ben, at 4/13/2006 11:26 AM  

  • semi pissed? Not at all. Little surprised that you figured it out that quick, perhaps.

    No I don't have a blog response alert thingy. I'm just that damn good.
