Chinese Bootleg Movies Seem a Bit Different…

Again, we see English words used as a design element… in this case, the lyrics to a popular Eminem song. This is, however, not unlike the American idiot with, “I’m a sweet little prostitute,” tattooed on his arm in Chinese because he thought it said, “Fierce warrior.”

WTF? Tattoo Fad Run Amok

Seriously, this whole tattoo thing is getting old. Every day, someone’s on my Facebook feed sporting their “new ink.” And half of those, they can’t afford to feed their kids or pay back the money they borrowed, but they can afford a $200 tattoo? Some people just shouldn’t be allowed to breed…

And it’s not just the tattoos, but this whole “Tribal Subculture” bullshit, which includes body piercings, gauging and, less popularly, cutting. Or you can mix and match: tattoo a large breasted woman on your leg, and complete it with implants that make Dolly Parton look like a 12-year-old boy.

Tribal, my ass. What Tribe did all this? It must’ve been that Emo tribe on the Pacific Rim, long extinct because of their mass suicide

The Trouble with Tattoos

Several years ago, I posted a photo of a Japanese man that went viral — he was wearing a white t-shirt with a single word on it: “BITCH.” He loved the idea of English, and bought the shirt because it had English written on it, but didn’t understand what the word meant.

The same goes for Tattoos. So often, Americans will mark themselves with any number of Asian languages, claiming to know its origins and meanings. The trouble with Chinese, especially, is that the words carry an entirely different meaning when taken out of context.

I guess what I’m saying is … You can make a perfect ass of yourself with a tattoo in English, so why bother getting something offensive in a different language?

Do Orangutans Have A Penis Bone??

Yah.  I’m back home and totally enjoying the comforts of my OG and my happy little office.  It’s always nice to get to travel far and wide, but even nicer to come home… especially since I had only been married a scant week when I had to leave on that jetplane.  But that’s another story all together ain’t it?

So, OG and I have been known to have some pretty interesting conversations in the last 7 years that we have worked together.  No holds barred.  Really.  We talk about anything and everything.  Which brings me to what we are talking about here.

At lunch, we generally find some kind of magazine full of gossip or short, yet hilarious ditties.  The conversation turned interesting when I found a short article about an ape who doesn’t dig girl apes….  Read this… you’ll love it.

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Sibu the Orangutan has miffed his Dutch keepers by refusing to mate with females and showing sexual interest only in tattooed human blondes.

Apenheul Primate Park hoped Sibu would become its breeding male when he arrived two years ago, but orangutans aren’t his type.

“He chases them, or ignores them, but he doesn’t do what he should do,” said a spokeswoman for the park.

Instead, Sibu fancies his female keepers, especially blondes. That, the spokeswoman said, was common for orangutans but Sibu has a fetish for tattoos, harking back to a heavily tattooed keeper who reared him.

“Orangutans have special interests in special subjects. Sibu happens to like tattoos,” she said.

So, this brought up the question of whether orangutans have a penis bone like most other mammals or if their penis gets hard like a human penis does.  Yah, I know what you must be thinking…  perfectly acceptable, lady-like lunchtime conversation.  So, we finished up our lunch and google’d it, as we google every sick and twisted thing we can think of.  And we found out that an orangutan does, in fact, have a penis bone.

OG has decided that I, being the blonde and tattoo’d chippie that I am, should stay the hell out of Amsterdam.

Just thought I’d share that tid-bit with you kids.  Cheers!
