How to date a black dude:
1. Find a black dude.
2. If he is interested and you are interested, go on a date with him.

Not rocket surgery, people.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Vintage Kardashian Holiday Cards: Old Noses, Awkward Poses:

I love all of these. It’s like they’re from another planet. An amazing, insane, themey, glittery planet possibly created by a lord god who got really really ripped one time and watched all its Dynasty/Falcon Crest/Dallas DVDs in one marathon session and said, “Yes, I want all of this to exist at once,” and made it so.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Repeal Vote Scheduled For Saturday:

Call the Senate switchboard toll-free at 1-800-614-2803, ask for Mark Kirk’s office, and try to make yourself sound like a cranky old person who has every Election Day free

Best Comment Of The Day in response to The Pocket Guide To Vaginal Euphamisms & Their Meanings:

And now a story, presented entirely in vagina euphemisms:
Black Bess greeted the morning, opened the Beef Curtains, put on her best Flesh Tuxedo, grabbed her Doodle Sack and headed out the door. She and her Slobbering Bulldog, Cooter, had planned an exciting adventure to Cape Horn.
Using her Map of Tasmania, together they navigated through the Fun Tunnel, around Jack Straw’s Castle and rode a Furback Turtle to Cod Canal. Once they crossed the body of water in a Butter Boat, they became lost in a Dead End Street in Happy Valley. Black Bess was struck by a Knob Gobbler and was left with a Rusty Axe Wound that Never Heals. Suddenly, Lady Jane, a Snake Charmer, came to her rescue and used a Dick Sharpener to kill it, leaving the beast with only a Vertical Grimace buried in a Smelly Jelly Hole.
Exhausted, all three slept in an improvised Silk Igloo and ate what little Yeast Cake and Meat Muffin they had left, Yum Yum!
The next morning, they followed the sweet serenades of Hairy Mannilow and finally reached their destination and lived happily ever after.
