HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for April 29, 2009


No, it's not Friday yet. This is not a Foodie Friday entry. It's Wednesday. This is a Hump Day Grammar post. And yet we're still talking about edible things like vegetables and fruits. Bizarre, I know...

So--holy Freudian slip, Batman! Cocumber? COCumber? I saw this and laughed my ass off. Partially due to Pixy Stix-induced delirium, partially because this is a particularly funny misspelling given the context of the sentence it's in.

I also love the general awkwardness of this entire question. It's so clueless in so many ways that it's almost charming.

Happy Hump Day, everyone...whether you spend it with somebody you dig or just spend it in the produce aisle of your grocery store, have a good one. ;)

This question looks like it was written by Borat.

I agree! :)

I'm left to wonder why the curious correspondent felt the need to capitalize the “Aubergine”?

Perhaps he has been experimenting with inserting an eggplant in some orifice he does have and has fallen in love with first penetration.

I'm relieved to learn that the poster isn't a woman to try themselves. Now I can sleep well at night.

All kidding aside, this sounds like the sort of thing (aside from being posted by Borat) that an older kid told a younger kid just to mess with his mind, and then ran rampant around the schoolyard, like fourth-hand knowledge. "Women do what?!"

(look at that, I'm not dead!)

Oh goodness. I should not check Hump Day Grammar posts while in class. Too much danger of literally laughing out loud...I swear, Professor, I just think Admin law is really funny!

Jagshemash Peoples! Yes - It true that I want to know about a women hand relief process. This I study in brand new college course - Romance 101! In in, Kazakh men learn technique associate with quickest entry to a womens vagine! Greaat!

@ David: It would be awesome if he was too busy experimenting with that eggplant to have the time to write any more crazy posts on Yahoo Answers...

@ EVula: Yay! I'm glad you're not dead! :)

Hahaha...after hearing this sort of nonsense, can you imagine the questions those kids in the schoolyard would ask once they get to the sex ed unit in health class? Yikes...

@ Bridgete: I understand your predicament. I was looking slightly lunatic-like, having a giggle fit while reading all the comments on this post. Luckily my co-workers already know I'm nuts, so this sort of behavior fails to surprise them anymore. :)

@ Borat: High five!

Regarding the answer by the Little Minx...she obviously isn't a good minx, otherwise she would know that women can and DO use varying vegetable for pleasure when they are out of alternatives. No personal experience myself, but I heard a story of someone who had. And it wasn't pretty.

@ ChicagoLady: Hahahaha! I don't personally know anyone who's used vegetables, but when I lived in PA I knew a girl who used Popsicles. I didn't ask how that turned out. I didn't really want to know! :)
