I know, I’ve got a lot of gall disappearing for weeks on end, then upon my (probably brief) return, I turn around and ask you all for a favor.
That’s what I’m doing, though.
Trust me, it’s a good cause, and probably a cause close to everyone’s heart.
So let me get to the matter at hand. (That’ll be funny in a minute.)
Thanks to the wonderful world of Facebook, it came to my attention that there is particular set of the pro-life group that has decided that every single sperm, EVER is a life. Or potential life. Or something. I’m so confused by the absurdity of the whole movement that I can’t see straight.
Of course, being who I am, the first thing that came to mind was Monty Python, because they had this idea first.
Then, like every jackass with an uninformed opinion, I shared the post on my Facebook page with the usual amount of sarcasm and self-righteousness.
Then I actually read the damn thing and discovered that the sarcasm and self-righteousness was well deserved.
Then I posted my own petition as a counter to the anti-spank campaign.
Then, while pondering the absolute absurdity of the entire idea, not to mention the ridiculously inaccurate medical information, I had to believe that 85,000 people could not possibly be this goddamn stupid.
Then I thought about who our presidential candidates are and concluded that 85,000 isn’t even a drop in the bucket . . . but I digress.
Thankfully, Snopes proved that the anti-spankers were indeed, non-existent. I mean, there probably are people out there that believe that bullshit. I’m sure Westboro Baptist Church has an opinion on the matter that is wrong.
At any rate, I still think my petition is a good idea. Please give it some support and pass it around. Who knows, maybe it will alert the attention of actual people that think this way and give us something else to make fun of.
Because the Trump and Hillary jokes are getting old already.
Join the movement and SPANK THE STIGMA!!
