Paris Hilton was released from jail over night after serving her 23 day sentence. What a relief to see my favorite bad girl out of jail! Glad to see she can still do her catwalk and her hair seems to have grown quite a bit during her stint, too. She says she’s a changed person, then again, so did The Chicago Bears’ Tank Johnson. We’ll have to see.
I can’t get enough of the tabloids and I have been wondering why I’m so interested in these bad, bad girls. I think I found out.
There is a rating system you can do on your blog over at Mingle 2, which is technically a dating site. I have no interest at all in dating anyone but the hubby, but they do have some cool little blog things you can do.
Mingle 2 will rate your blog with standard movie ratings like “G”, “PG”, “R”, etc. I fully expected a PG-13 rating. To my surprise, I got an “NC-17” rating! No children under 17 admitted. That’s one rating short of porn, for goodness sake.
Here I am believing that I’m this totally nice person and this date/rate your blog website is telling me that I am a total BAD GIRL. No wonder I have a soft spot for the Britneys and Paris’ of the world! I’m apparently one of them, although, I do own my own underpants. I just want to make that clear.
Curious, I scrolled down a little farther to determine just how I had earned this “NC-17” rating. I’m thinking if I am NC-17, my kids are no longer going to movies because the ratings are f-bombed up.
Language. I got into trouble with two words on my blog. The first was “ass”. It says it appears eight times in my blog. I’m sure all are in relation to my ex-husband, too.
See, not only is it therapeutic, but saying “My ex-husband is an ass” is clear, gets the point across and is much more descriptive than “my ex-husband is a rectum” (so 4th grade!) or my ex-husband is a a long-eared, slow, patient, sure-footed domesticated mammal, Equus asinus, related to the horse, used chiefly as a beast of burden.
I’ll give him the beast and (for sure) the burden part, but the rest of it really isn’t him, either.
The other word that got me into big trouble was.....penis. (doesn’t it always?) That’s right. Penis.
Come on, people! Since when is penis a bad word? Isn’t it a body part, like arm, leg or nose? Why am I in trouble with the penis? Can I help it if what the dentist attached to my TMJ splint looks like a penis? What am I supposed to call it? Wait...never mind. I'm trying to get rid of my NC-17 rating :)
I am fond of the phrase “The Penis Gene” to describe all of the silly things men and boys seem to be genetically programmed to do. For example, spinning Scotch tape dispensers on their fingers until they fly off, striking their eyeballs like a well guided and razor sharp missile requiring females like me to transport them to the Emergency Room.
I’m not saying women don’t sometimes do these kinds of things, it’s just a phrase to describe it. Believe me, I'm an equal opportunity ranter. The Desperate Housewives have gotten their share, too.
I don't get it. If penis is a bad word, what word do men use for their penis if they, you know, have a penis problem that needs to be presented to a doctor? If you use it with the doctor, it can’t be a bad word.
My second argument is that I’ve never heard the word “penis” used in a porn movie. Paris certainly didn't use that terminology in her movie! They only use NC-17+ words in porn movies and penis isn't one of them.
I have been completely misrated by this website! I will swear to it. Ok, maybe I won't :)
