The ad messages on the bus tell A LOT about the state of the world today:
“Have you experienced a single, overwhelming traumatic event?”
“Keep your privates private.”
“Don’t touch the driver.”
“Don’t spray your germs.”
“Hunger hurts. We can help.”
…and these are only the ones within my sight range.
Uggghh. What I wouldn’t give to see a stewpidd “Got Milk?” ad.
Here’s a shockingly awful “Christian” T-shirt I saw at a store in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. There were plenty more, but this was by far the worst of them. If you want to see the rest, take a look at the Pinterest Board I created:
You know what phrase I hate even more than “That’s so gay”?
“I don’t judge.”
I often hear straight people saying this when the topic of gay people comes up. I’ve had people say it TO ME when talking about my homosexuality. I’ve heard talk show hosts use it after discussing a gay celebrity, after which the audience applauds proudly and happily in agreement.
But when people talk about homosexuals and says “I don’t judge”, they are not being favorably accepting; they’re being stealthily homophobic. The person speaking is revealing that while she thinks homosexuality is something that SHOULD be judged, she herself does not. This is not approbation. This is resigned toleration, which is something altogether different.
A truly accepting straight person’s view on homosexuality is “Who cares?!”

Maybe those missing socks don’t end up in bedside and Laundromat purgatory—maybe they lead elaborate lives. Ones that felt-hearted artist Marty Allen captures in Martystuff’s lively sock puppets and celeb puppet portraits (think Bill Murray and Amelia Earhart). Get your hands and walls ready for some toe-tingling fun.
