Kermit at the Club

Thursdays have Friday envy. A few stories that made me laugh this week:

  • What date number is a burp okay? This and other food etiquette questions answered here.

  • American children are speaking with British accents and parents are blaming Peppa The Pig.

  • Timber is an app from Husqvarna that describes itself as “The First Ever Dating Service for Trees”

  • No thank you very much. Men are joining Masturbation Clubs.

  • Maybe everyone is at the Masturbation Club because Sex in the Park isn’t what it used to be.

  • 1970s Basement Boys rejoice! Now you can hit the Masturbation Club then head over to your buddies basement and practice lightsaber dueling. It’s now an official Olympic sport.

  • This dude is celebrating like he just visited the Masturbation Club. “Big Fella, shut it down!”:

Crazy In the Name of Love?

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done in the name of love? I thought my secret trip to Italy as a Christmas gift followed up by a surprise proposal atop a hill overlooking Florence was pretty crazy high up the love-o-meter until I read this:

Fell in love with my gondolier, 10 years my senior, while on my birthday gondola ride in Venice on my 33rd birthday, while sitting beside my Spouse of 9 years. Got divorced within 4 weeks of getting ‘home’ and I packed up and went back to Venice with only his email address, a photo and his promise to meet me at the airport. Which he did. We only managed to disentangle after 9 intense years of crazy love, lots of air miles and the tears which became too many.
