Introducing “Sex Box”: Coming to a Stereo V Near You

“Once each couple enters the sex box, our experts discuss their initial observations, ranging from what they think is happening inside the box to whether or not the relationship will survive,” read a statement by WE tv. “Immediately upon exiting the sex box, each couple sits down for a heart-to-heart with the expert panelists to discuss what just happened, how they feel, and how they’re planning to overcome their issues.”

Something very important is happening in that box, but we can’t see it…we’ll just talk about it…because it matters. People doing things…to each other…sex things…sexy time things maybe. Then you can talk about it with Dan Savage, who is a sex expert. I would have performance anxiety, personally.  This might be more my style (if you judge by the comments, it might suit millions of other men. Good luck with that feminists)

Awful, yes. But really,  what’s taken so long. Coming soon, “Death Box”.

FYI, this is not to be confused with Dick in a box

More From The Department of “You Can’t Make This Shit Up Anymore” Department

John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, a group that monitors diversity, told ESPN that the he “expects the league to institute a rule where players would be penalized 15 yards for using the N-word on the field.” Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome “said the committee talked about other slurs coming under any possible new rule, including homophobic slurs.”

Zero Hedge

For our disinterested readers, Zero Hedge has been a daily dose during this winter of my discontent, and I’ve been intending to pass it on for a few months. Most of the entries are posted anonymously by “Tyler Durden.” The contributors include more than forty financial insiders who share a collective dismay over the real economic condition of the U.S. and the rest of the world. They seem to have  professional reasons to remain anonymous . Sometimes the terminology is a bit technical, but you’ll get the idea. This post is a good summation of a number of entries and include links to previous posts.


For those who want to see how the sausage is made. For those who do not, I don’t blame you a bit. Enjoy the hot dog because we’re probably  powerless to fix things anyway.

News We Couldn’t Pass Up

…partially explaining my long standing secret infatuation with (in this video) a suprisingly attractive Hillary Clinton, and an evolving appreciation of Rand Paul. One thing I will appreciate about Judgement Day (my much deserved comeuppance acknowledged here for the record) will be Secretary Clinton answering the fucking question, whatever it is. I’ve been waiting twenty years for her to answer the fucking question and she didn’t turn a new leaf today. Why is she so damn likeable? She is the bad girlfriend you come back to because the pain hurts so good.

The two had lunch, says Bryan A. Garner, a lexicographer and legal-writing consultant from Texas who arranged the encounter.

Jimmy Goin

“Despite the massive destruction of property only one person was killed by the fire, a young boy named James Goin.” – Wikipedia, “Great Seattle fire”

They say I died that day Seattle’s
Ignited skyline vented sparks
Like starry palimpsests and riddles
Of fire, dispatches from the Sphinx
To night. Such conundrums continue
To linger – the greatest knot to
Untangle, though, is Jimmy Goin –
The other side of mystery’s coin:
How to go about setting fire
To ghosts? First, telegraph the poets
With arson-odes and firebug-sonnets;
Then put Calliope on the wire –
For when she whispered out my name
My pants erupted into flame.
