Santorum and Goatse

2003-12-05 23:14:29.444994+00 by Dan Lyke 7 comments

By now you probably all know that Santorum is "that frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex". I've been following the evolution of the word in Savage Love, but Pursed Lips points out that there's a new website devoted solely to the topic, so if you have any questions you can head on over to SpreadingSantorum.com.

Speaking of such things, Borklog says: When GoatSe meets modern publishing. Ya know, I think I actually am interested in reading that book, but... eeeew.

No, really. Eeeeew.

If you aren't familiar with goatse, consider yourself lucky and I'm not gonna link it.

Why in the hell would anyone want to hear this crap ( no pun intended ) Prior to this subject being introduced,I always gave you credit for pursuing interesting topics, is this more comfirmation of the downward spiral which seems to be the trend? Disgusted in Florida

Currently living in Pennsylvania, I find this hilarious.

CJ, I don't know if your dissatisfaction is with the meta topic (which we've always pursued to some extent here, and have reasons for doing so deliberately), or that you didn't get the joke. In particular, this spring a particularly lame-brained schmuck from Pennsylvania, one Senator Rick Santorum, made some comments supporting laws that intrude into the privacy of our homes in a way that made those of us who aren't quite so narrow minded and judgemental determined to redefine his place in history. Here's a short run-down.

One way to start doing that is by redefining his place on the web. Since the web is defined by who links where, I think it's my moral duty to help the trend.

OK, I had to look. `Ugh.

CJ, What makes Dan, and consequently Flutterby interesting is the blatant honesty that ANY subject is discussed. Even ones that gross some of us out. Santorum is (to me) gross, but yet again, what one, two or more consenting adults do is up to them. I appreciate knowing about it... and am glad that such things CAN be discussed, ridiculed.. or used for political ridicule.

Ok, Ok, now I get it, didnt make the connection Yes, you are correct in reminding me that the virtue and worth of Flutterby is the open and honest discussion and pursuit of the whole range of human knowledge, experience and endeavor. Anyway, as to one thing, I am in total agreement: Rick Santorum is an asshole of the first order

And apologies for any emotional scarring brought up by the concepts discussed here, although personally I blame Mark D. Showed that Creating Accessible Websites web page to some teenagers last night and... well... they were as squicked as I was.
