    McSweeney’s…awesomely funny.

    I’ve been wondering these things lately about men (particularly those in power) and their penises:

    Did/do they masturbate far too little or way too much?

    Did/do they consume a little, or way too much porn, and did no one ever tell them that many of the women they see in said films/images are trafficked and abused?

    Do they look in the mirror, naked, alone, and like what they see?

    or, what I suspect is likely, did no parent of loving adult ever teach them what it is to be a member of the male species, and what a healthy, natural and respectful use of that body part looks like?

    Or it could just be that they have a violent pathology related to their power and the penis is the easiest thing to use as a weapon.

    Honestly I’m kind of surprised Ira Glass hasn’t been named yet, not that we need another one, but you know. I’ve heard…things.

    Hockenberry ugh indeed. I will say that Ms. Kim did a brilliant job on her essay. Well thought out and presented. I’m only sorry so many women had to deal with such a “man.”

    And, yes, DanaD––I think all those reasons.

    I did get some amusement out of the hotel carpets. I used to photograph the way hotel bathrooms “styled” their shower curtains.

    I can’t imagine having the talent needed to paint those cacti so realistically. (Actually, I can’t imagine having the talent to paint stick figures.) 😉

    McSweeney’s is being sent to my 3 daughters, who will greatly appreciate it.

    Hotel carpets…funny but gross!

    Hockenberry is just another great disappointment. I wonder what these creeper’s wives will do? Stay or leave?
