Today is already looking to be a shining example... first I listened to morning radio. Silly me. Next, I'm in the 7-11 waiting in line, and I see this little girl (about 5?) standing right in front of the magazine display, which is naturally basically about ten thousand maxim type things. She sees the "Biker" mag with a woman standing near a bike with (what else?) virtually nothing on. She tugs her mom's sleeve. A number of things to say cross my mind:
"Women aren't just things for men to ride like bikes."
"If you ever want to ride a motorcycle, I recommend protective gear if you want to keep your skin on."
"Girls can actually ride bikes, too, not just stand around naked next to them."
Her mother and I exchanged exasperated glances, I purchased my Dannon fruit-on-the-bottom, and nothing was said.
Then I got in the car and what was on? That vile song about sexism masked as being "good to your daughters".

The final insult being when I saw a poor kitty that looked just like Nicolas dead on the side of the road.
Can I please go back to bed.
(And I haven't even heard about state of the union yet.)

here is my thingy, er:
Sunny/Dark: 3/10
drY/Gross: 4/10
Traditional/Offbeat: 6/10
Active/Passive: 5/10


You are a SYO--Sunny Dry Offbeat. This makes you a Sly Boots.

You are the cutest! You come off so nice and sweet that people don't think you'll be funny, and then SHA-POW you're pouring the Beringer and making gentle but searingly accurate fun of the people you work with.

If there isn't one of your type at a party, then I don't want to go.

You would never use humor to hurt somebody. You start slow and finish big, sometimes dropping little humor bombs no one gets until later. You know how people are always like, "Hey, you should invite so-and-so." You're so-and-so.

You might like Mystery Science Theater 3000, A Fish Called Wanda and the following story (stop me if you've heard this one):

My boyfriend and I were touring Ireland in a rental car. Every time he saw castle ruins, which was about every hundred yards, he'd say, "Look at that castle! It's RUINED!" He was totally SYO. I shoulda tapped dat sh1t. (Story reprinted from article talkback.)

Of the 11685 people who have taken this quiz, 5.9 % are this type.

Your Active humor score of 5/10 means you're a yellow dash of comedy down the middle of the humorous road. You prefer to listen than to be the center of attention, inserting funny observations and comments rather than driving the herd. That's cool. Just remember that the quantity of funny you provide tends to make people think you're up to something.

Ironically, I hated Fish Called Wanda because of the live fish-eating scene which made me cry and cry. Other than that I like this analysis!

Take the quiz here.

You are a DYO--Dark Dry Offbeat. This makes you a Neurotic.

You are acerbic, cynical and can smile while you're tearing someone apart. You efface others as you would be effaced yourself, and no topic is taboo -- rape, renal failure, the Challenger explosion (Christa McAuliffe so-o-o had it coming). You like characters as quirky and upsetting as yourself. You are Dorothy Parker minus the Ayn Rand aesthetic. I have some friends like you, and they're funny as all hell.

I would have said:
"If you ever want to ride a motorcycle, I recommend protective gear if you want to keep your skin on."

sorry... after reading your post, perhaps it was wrong of me to start out by objectivifying.

*Sigh*

Yeah, this morning started for me with the Channel 4 news to get the weather and traffic, which is typical. And they had an ad for whatever their "Consumer reporter" was reporting on that night, also as per usual. But here is how they introduced it:

"Wrinkles on men are a sign of character. But women spend blahblahblah wrinkle cream." I was SO IRRITATED. Their report is on how to get wrinkle creams cheaper (I think their radical discovery is you can get them through a doctor for less or something). It is ONLY targeted at women and it simply assumes that this is what is acceptable behavior, that the instant the natural aging process starts we have to fight it with teeth and nails.

Stupid fuckers.

WHOA! I love you, have I told you that lately? I hate that song a little more every time I hear it but when I tried to convey that to the girls here they were like "You know, some families really are awful to their daughters and this is a good song because of that." To which I had no ready reply.

This You would never use humor to hurt somebody.

Really does remind me of you. You are smart as hell, but you don’t tag people unless you must.

========================

My ( high school ) friends Bruce and Lori have two daughters. They are also into bikes and Bruce has pinouts all over his garage. A few years ago, they had film from one of those disposable cameras developed and were shocked to find pics of their then 10 year old daughter on top of one of his bikes in some black one piece, with black gloves and black knee-boots. When asked she told them that her sister took them because she wanted to be just like those “biker models”.

They thought it was funny, that’s how I heard about it. I was horrified. The last thing I want is my daughter to think she has to ( or would want to) pander to that crap.

Well, clearly the biological determinant here shows that girls want to look pretty, not to ride motorcycles! It's PROVED!!

:P

Thanks for the compliment. I like to think I would not do that although I'm sure I have. :( It reminds me of when I was first hanging out with all my Digex friends and I got on a mailing list that was notorious for insult flinging. I sent out one message to the list, and the person I sent it to came to me saying "that really hurt" and I immediately got of the list and it brings me to tears to think that I hurt his feelings to this day. (This was about 6 years ago...) I tried it, and it doesn't work...
