HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for November 12, 2008


This picture contains evidence of bigger problems than just spelling and punctuation issues. Dude, what are you doing eating a Popsicle while you're in bed with a girl? Isn't that kind of...rude? (And also rather phallic?) It doesn't seem like the guy brought the Popsicle into bed for any kinky purposes, either. It really seems like he's actually just eating the Popsicle while he's in bed with a girl. And if his mouth's busy with the Popsicle, then presumably his mouth is not busy kissing his girl, and so she's probably gonna get pretty cranky about it.

And the solution to this issue is not to bring her a Popsicle. She's not pissy because she wants a Popsicle. The solution is to not ignore the girl in bed and eat your damn Popsicle before you get into bed. Duh.

(By the way, popsical is an actual word. I had no idea! But it's certainly not a frozen treat. It's actually a genre of music!)

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

I would POP my man in his SICLE if he tried to bring a popsicle into our bed on an intimate occasion.

The Brooklyn Boy said...

At least it's not a Fudgesicle --those melty bastards are a bitch to get out ...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha...nice pun, Laura! :)

Editrix said...

You know what's sad? The first thing that crossed my mind wasn't, "Wow, what a freak," but, "Isn't Popsicle trademarked?"

I think this means I have been an editor for too long.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

BB: Yeah, I can imagine that could get pretty messy! Fudgsicles are quite tasty, though.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! C'mon, Editrix, get your mind outta the the style manual and into the gutter! :)

The Brooklyn Boy said...

If by "quite tasty" you mean "absolutely effin delicious," then yes.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

BB: That's exactly what I mean! :) (They're actually one of my favorite snacks to have when I write. They're yummy, low-calorie, and when I'm typing, I don't have to put the Fudgsicle down--I just keep it in my mouth until my lips start to freeze!)

The Brooklyn Boy said...

I think every male reader just swooned. Ha.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ha! Either that, or they cracked up laughing at the mental image of me typing away with a Fudgsicle sticking out of my mouth...it probably looks more snicker-worthy than swoon-worthy, but if they'd rather swoon than snicker? I'm not gonna stop 'em!

Liebchen said...

I read that question and thought it had to be a joke. No one could be that dumb...

And then I read the "best" answer. Oy. With a comment like that, my bet is that guy's not getting laid at all. No wonder he's cranky.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Apparently this guy really IS that dumb! Haha. And good point about how this was what they called the "best" answer. If that was the best answer, what were some of the other answers that weren't deemed the best choice? Yikes! (Perhaps it was the only answer submitted? That's the only explanation I can think of...)

"I just keep it in my mouth until my lips start to freeze!"

That's what she said.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Hahaha! Nice one, Pat! :)

Leonard said...

Guyyyss - My favorite frozen treat is the Creamsicle. O-M-G

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Leonard, are you sure you haven't been spending too much time ridin' around in the Good Humor guy's truck?

Leonard said...

Oh I sure have silly, he always lets me ride in back.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Always make sure to practice safe sucks (and licks, and slurps, and all the other fun verbs that can describe the various methods of popsicle consumption)!

Becky said...

Hahahaha, that's hilarious. Maybe the questioner is George Costanza.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha--Becky, you might be on to something there! :)

EVula said...

Now, to be fair, temperature manipulation can be all kinds of fun...

Also, "fudgesicle" in this context conjures up very different mental pictures. And just as I was getting over the "Pitcher McCain" thoughts from another post... *shudder*

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Sorry to give you more nightmares, evula! :)
