Check out this class gift from the 2010 Brooklyn Law students to themselves.
Sometimes I feel like I'm all alone in the "everything sounds dirty to me" world. Not so. While it appears an entire class of supposedly intelligent people thought that this motto was appropriate, there was at least one person who had the innuendo wherewithal to point out the obvious phallic overtones of this sign.
I think that I may just print out a few dozen "that's what she said" signs and have them handy for occasions just like this. In fact, maybe a business card sized message would be more convenient. I could just go around all day, and whenever I hear or see a blatant innuendo offense I could either hand the person the card or paste it up near the offending sign. What say you? Good idea?
I could create my own line of cards and sell them to trained innuendo-spotters. Maybe offer a course first. Lots of ideas here.
On a related note, I'd like to mention that several of my friends who ordinarily do not have dirty minds have all started watching what they say.
One friend: "my arm is getting stronger all the time; I just have to keep playing with it and build up endurance. Caleb, let it go." She said that last bit before I could even chime in with anything!
Another blogger: "... my nerdy habits [that include] partitioning my hard drive- and no, perverts, that's not some dirty innuendo!" Good catch. And that was a bit of a difficult innuendo.
I postulate that it doesn't take a lot of people to be trained in innuendo-ery. (awesome word Caleb! Thanks, Caleb!) One person can affect the habits of dozens of their family and friends!
So keep on keepin' on, pervs. I love you all.
