Thank God for That

(You write. You finish. Six steps to the next step on this week's Jared's Inkwell. -JMG)

Story Sent in by Sheila:

"True or false," Joel asked me right when we sat down to dinner on our blind date, "Women are just men without penises."

"False," I said.

Joel asked, "Do you have a penis?"

I said, "No."

"Then you just proved my point."


"By not having a penis. You have no frame of reference. I, having one, now have all the cards. That's why men are 99% of Fortune 500 leaders."

I said, "You poor man. I guess you'll never have a vagina."

He grinned like a donkey. "Thank God for that!"

I smiled, finished dinner with the man I'd never sleep with or see again, and went home.


  1. Wow, you managed to choke down dinner after listening to that misogynistic bile spew out of your date's mouth? Must have been really good food.

  2. He's right though - she had no frame of reference there. She was like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie. She was out of her element.

  3. While I agree that the wandering packs of feral children that plague theatres are a serious problem, hunting for loose change and confusing risqué movie scenes to question their parents about, there is no bigger pest than a dick in a man costume.

  4. Tourist, you're over the line!

  5. Misogynistic wandering prenises aside, Daisy Duped's punctuation is like hot pokers to the eyes.

  6. Feel the burn. Shake what your English teachers gave you.
