Emily Veinglory recently posted this cartoon of hers on her Cliterature Blog. This probably says too much about what kind of person I am, but the first thing that came to mind, aside from it being funny, was "Oh my god, that vibrator isn't earthed ... that's really dangerous."
When I commented as such Emily replied; "The dangers of a ungrounded vibrator -- there should be a public service announcement about that.... "
(Office scene: two female office workers are looking over their shared cubicle wall at a co-worker, Bob, who is acting strangely.)
Sally: "What's Bob doing?"
Madge:"Well, Sally, he's clucking like a chicken and jumping up on people's desks."
Sally: "That Bob, he's not very grounded is he?"
Madge: "No, he isn't, Sally,and that's just fine for him. We all need a Bob or two in our lives to make us laugh."
Sally: "But you know what's no laughing matter when it comes to things being ungrounded?"
Madge: "What's that, Sally?"
Madge: "Oh, gosh!"
Sally: "That's right. You should always use a well grounded vibrator."
Madge: "I know I wouldn't want to put anything down there that wasn't grounded."
Sally: "So remember ... Before you make it buzz in your fuzz check to see if it got the right plugs."
Madge: "That's sound advice, Sally."
Sally: "No, Madge. That's ground advice."
(forced smiles and canned laughter)
