Wow, a whole podcast devoted to rear diseases! Please, educated me!

Thanks, Diana!

    Could I start by educating the poster? Something that does not happen often is rare, rear refers normally to the back of something. Rare can also refer to the doneness of meat. It is rare that someone is born without a rear. It is not rare that someone likes his meat rare.

          Although, that pruning the heads of exes gets a tad messy; as does the squabbling over horses and kingdoms and horseshoes, when in Tudor mode.

          Although, the redheads do ok in the end.

        Wait, where in the English-speaking world do people pronounce “rare” and “rear” the same way? They sound clearly different to me the way I pronounce them.

          jackie,

          Lots of places. I’m Indian, and with all the heavy regional accents we have, English words often are nowhere near recognizable. And the pronunciations get adapted to whatever the normal cadences of the accent are, so it almost never has anything to do with the spelling.

        …except “rear” and “rare” aren’t even homophones, unless he thinks that “rear” rhymes with “bear,” or “pear,” or “wear,” or “swear…”

        Adores: 5
        • 2010 January 27

          Or doesn’t know those words, or the rhyming conventions of English, or disregards them and just takes a wild stab at what he thinks it might sound like. And then an entire generation learns it that way, and the next, and the next. I’m not making this up, I swear. Tamil, Malayali, Hindi, Bengali and Kannada sound radically different than any of the Romance languages and you have people with those backgrounds speaking English, the results are rarely, if ever, even intuitive mispronunciations. I know it sounds like I’m being pedantic (/corey) but it’s unfair to bag on people who mispronounce English in certain parts of the world that are, yes, still ‘English-speaking,’ but not primarily English-speaking.

          I live near a gourmet deli that has a predominantly if not entirely ESL staff and ownership. The spelling on the signs and packaging, while you can tell they are making an effort, is often amusingly incorrect (I can’t get snarky, as I know they likely don’t know better; besides, it makes me giggle most of the time). Between the original speaker’s accent and the local accent here and varying levels of education and/or literacy, they produce some highly creative spelling.

    Dear Educated Sir,
    I know someone who got a disease from doing something in the rear seat of the car. Does that count, or do they have to have the disease actually in their rear? Please advise.

    As an aside, since he’s (I don’t know why I assume this poster is male, as we’ve certainly had enough demonstration of female stupidity on CL; any way …) describing himself as the Host and is talking about diseases, I can’t help thinking that he may have a rear disease as well. And that after it is finished incubating, it will … exit … probably graphically … and then wreak havoc of the sort that usually requires Mulder, Scully, and a stand-alone “X-Files” episode.

          Nah, saunas are one of the few places in the house that can be relied on to be (more or less) sterile, since they regularly get heated to close to the boiling point of water and blasted with steam.

    You know the ones;

    “Are you a promiscuous woman who is unsure who your child’s father is and need to give the entire football team paternity tests?”

    “Is a loved one deeply disturbed or possibly mentally ill and you would like them to find out on national television?”

    “Are you a man who no longer wants to pay child support and needs a paternity test for the courts?”

    “Do you have a shocking and possibly criminal secret you wish to share with the entire world, potentially ruining all future relationships with people you profess to love dearly, rather than handling it quietly like normal people?”

    “Are you married or have children with a close family member? Call the Maury show at ***-***-****”

          Simply paying attention to details of a person’s appearance can give anyone enough information to do a cold reading to me, you, etc. It’s not magic.

          Harry Houdini did shows where he debunked psychic charlatans and people who went to them also wanted him to do those things “for real.” (He himself wanted to believe in life after death because he wanted to communicate with his mother or something; I don’t remember clearly. He started doing the shows because he was disgusted with all of the frauds he discovered whilst trying to locate a “real” medium or psychic.) Simply put, no matter how often or clearly you tell people that something isn’t real, if they want to believe it, they will.

          I’ll angle for some Corey credits by adding something to the bit about Houdini and mediums. He publicly announced that he would give a reward (I don’t remember how much, but was a lot of money at the time) to anyone who could conclusively prove to be able to communicate with the dead. Seemingly, he always had hope to find a way to speak one last time with his late mother, but mostly he used the reward as bait to debunk frauds.

          He even made his wife promise that she would keep on trying after he died, giving her a “password” to make sure if it was really him who was communicating with her from the afterlife.

          After earning those Corey credits, I’m off to work (and on my way there I’ll be listening a song about Houdini, his wife and the mediums that Kate Bush did on her crazier phase).

          Traveler,
          Marry me. I’ve never met anyone else who knew that Houdini stuff. I got into reading him when I was about 10 and am still kind of interested. I was going to add in the bit about his wife but had to leave and feign work for a while.

          Visit my inlaws in Appleton; the Houdini museum is there. It’s actually really cool.

          I think they have an entire room dedicated to the years he spent debunking psychics.

          I’ll start preparing the wedding, Lola.

          I can’t say that I am an expert on Houdini. I think that I heard the bit about his wife and the password on an interview with Kate Bush about that song.

          But I like escape artists in general. A few years ago, I saw Jim Steranko (who was a escape artist -and hailed by some as Houdini’s heir- before becoming a comic-book artist; both Jack Kirby’s Mr. Miracle and Michael Chabon’s The Escapist -from ” The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay”- are based on him) on my hometown. He was there because of an exhibition of his comic-book works, but during a conference he still did the trick of escaping from a pair of handcuffs while he was answering questions from the audience.

          Speaking of comics and scape artists, did you read “King of Handcuffs”, a comic about Houdini by Jason Lutes and Nick Bertozzi? Not Lutes’ best, but quite entertaining anyway.

          Here is how you make the Bacontini:

          1. Lightly mist martini glass with vermouth, and rim the edge with a bacon grease.

          2. In a cocktail shaker, mix 3oz bacon-infused vodka, one dash tobasco, and one dash olive juice.

          3. Shake well and strain into cocktail glass. 4. Skim excess bacon grease from surface of coctail.

      No, it’s not that over 30’s don’t get the diseases, it’s just that no one under 30 would ever want to hear the opinion of a geezer over 30. (At least that’s my guess as to the “logic”.)

But in fact we’ve all got our different roles here in the comment community (or commentity?), from greeter to sniper to raving loon, and it turns out to be a well-balanced sauce of hilarity.

          And of course the chef or stage manager (I’ve lost track of my metaphor), the best host, our dear llamanun, makes that mix possible in the first place. Drmk sets the tone, and can say a thousand words with one affirmative snort.

    Dear Host-

    I thought it a bit cheeky of you to assume that those of us over 30 with rear diseases can not be of benefit to those under 30. Many of us have had these since we were much younger. My good friend Heinie Keister was diagnosed in his late teens and would be perfect for giving younger viewers a posterior view of his life. I think it very presumptuous of you to derriere put us “older” folks in the rear seat when it comes to offering advice and information. We have years of stories of being the butt of jokes, being told to take a seat at the rear end of rooms because no one wanted to be near us whilst enjoying their mid-morning coffee and buns. We have experienced the backside to living like this. Don’t be a bum, set down your can of soda and get to know us. I am positive that, on the tail end of the conversation, you will be glad you did.

    Sincerely,

    Fanny Tush

          Warning: Long Joke.

          Ok so there was a science expidition to the rainforests of South America. They were searching for the legendary FooBird. Before going out in search of the bird, they met with their native guides to go over the details of the expidition.

          During the meeting one of the guides mentioned a safety concern to the scientists. He told them that if the FooBird were to ever poop on them not to wipe it off. If they did wipe off the poop, they would die instantly.

          So eventually the expidition was launched and they headed into the secluded rainforests, lead by their guides. After several days without seeing anything, one of the guides suddenly pointed to the sky and announced, “FooBird!” Excitedly the scientists looked up to see the bird, but at that moment the FooBird took an enourmous dump right on one of the researcher’s face. Disgusted, he wiped the poop off his face and promplty dropped dead.

          The moral of the story? If the Foo shits, wear it.

          One day, Little Snake was hissing in the pit. His mother came over and told him, “Little Snake, you can’t hiss in the pit today. I have to clean the pit because we’re having company later. Go over to Mrs. Pott’s pit and hiss.”

          So Little Snake slithers on over to Mrs. Pott’s pit and starts hissing around. After a while Mrs. Pott comes out and tells Little Snake, “You can’t hiss in my pit. You need to go back to your own pit and hiss.”

          So Little Snake slithers back to his own pit and starts hissing around. His mother spots him and comes over to yell at him; “I thought I told you to go to Mrs. Pott’s pit to hiss?”

          “But Mom,” he replies, “Mrs. Pott says that I can’t hiss in her pit. She said I have to go to my own pit and hiss.”

          “Well of all the nerve,” the mother replies. “I knew Mrs. Pott when she didn’t have a pit to hiss in!”

    Hello, I am responding to your ad on Craigslist. I think I would be perfect for your podcast. I do in fact have a rear disease.

    For several years now, beginning in my mid twenties, my rear seems to expand at an exponential rate. As other parts of my body do expand and gain mass, my rear seems to have broadened far more rapidly. This is a result of serious medical issue, Rearadose-Expandotia-Rapidose, or “Ba-donk-a-donk-itis”, which, as you know, is both embarrassing and dibilitating. It’s catagorized by an immense hind end, extremely full hips, and a generally expansive buttocks.

    Symptoms of Ba-donk-a-donk-itis include: overwhelming cravings for sweet and salty foods, low mobility, slothfullness, and a draw toward hours of daytime television. Other symptoms can include pants that seem to shrink weekly, seats that are made for “little scrawny stick people”, and a severely decreased self-awareness.

    I have only recently been diagnosed, and have just begun to receive treatment. It is very painful, consisting of agonizing walks to and from the car, which must be parked at least 3 spaces from the front of stores and my home. I must also not buy clothing from the “Juniors” section, which has been a blow to my self-esteem (who DOESN’T want a pink jean mini-skirt with matching tube top???). I must not have fast food more than twice a day, and the doctor has decided that my normal intake of 16 sodas a day is “excessive” and “likely to turn my into a sugar-addicted psychopath” (whatever!).

    I would like to come on your show to raise awareness of this sad condition, and the people who stuggle daily to overcome the obstacles associated with it. I want to bring a face to Ba-Donk-A-Donk-itis, and show that those afflicted are proud and live with dignity.

    We ask not for a cure, we simply ask for acceptance.

    I have a rear disease that I’m willing to show to kids today for education purposes. But I’m over 30. Drat!

    Guess I’ll just have to go on Jerry Springer instead, during his wildly popular but little known, “U R OVER 30 AND HAVE A REAR DISEASE” educational segments. Usually appearing between commercial breaks, Jerry’s, “URO3AHARD” clips offer exciting and educational glimpses into those, “HARD” individuals so tragically afflicted.

The bruise on my rear looked like I sat in dark purple paint until yesterday, when it started to fade in the center. Now it looks like an outline of Germany. Not even kidding. I want to call up my landlord and kvetch about the groundskeepers that suck so much, but I’m too shy. Even after walking around for 2 days with a limp because of their excess suckage.

    Crump permalink

    Good news everyone! I’ve decided to comment!

    I am the man with no name, Crump, and I am a long time reader. I think this is only the second or third time I’ve ever made a comment though.

    I can’t really think of anything to say about the ad as I don’t have a rear disease. However, I noticed that many of the regular commenters do have a rear disease of some sort. There must be a direct relationship between the two! My guess is that rear diseases cause commenting.

    I wish all of those that have these diseases a speedy recovery, unless that means they’ll stop posting funny comments.

    Edit: After posting this I realized that I’d really like to see the code generating these snazzy geometry avatar things. Anyone know what they are called so I can look into it and satisfy my curiosity?

        If you really want to.

        For the sake of accuracy, if you do call me that I should meet a lady with the last name of Pinnet, marry her, and hyphenate our names together.

        …actually I may do that anyways. Crump-Pinnet would make a pretty awesome name.

          Where I ilve (the American South) you can find opened jars of pickled pig’s feet in bars, right next to the jars of pickled eggs, and both are set out for the customers’ enjoyment.

          Canned brown bread is actually pretty tasty.

          Think of it sort of more like a dense rum-cake (without the rum). It’s not really bread. But it is pretty good.

          Doctor Who audio books, there’s 4 that are only available in that format so I spent the last on my Christmas money on them.

          Dev, I was first introduced to David Tennant when I was in England on a study abroad in 2008. We made a special trip to Stratford-on-Avon and got to see David Tennant and Patrick Stewart in Hamlet. Holy moly, it was probably one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. DT was really able to do the anguished bookish guy who talks and analyzes stuff instead of just DOING SOMETHING. It was wonderful, and totally worth spending the night freezing outside the theatre so we could get tickets first thing in the morning. ๐Ÿ˜€

          They actually taped it, and will be showing it on PBS in April. (They aren’t paying me or anything, but when there is something that spectacular, it MUST be shared!)

          Adores: 1
        • 2010 January 28

          I know what you mean. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews of that performance, and from what I hear the tickets sold out in under 3 hours, it’s just a shame I was too far away to go myself.

          I also managed to miss it when it was televised over here too, but I’m hoping for a DVD release at a later date *crosses fingers*

          Also, you can order the DVD here:
