Return of the Feverish Laughing OMG Jedi

Hey, y’all! Hubby and I brought the flu bug back from Texas so it’s been a very long week here at Hansen House. But I missed you guys too much to stay away any longer. Plus, it’s Monday, and it’s just a rule that we start our week off with a laugh here at More Cowbell.

Guess what the irrepressible Gloria Richard brought to DFWCon for me??

Besides the Handerpants. Yep, I’ve now got one sassy pair of those!

[That’s me and Jess Witkins below. She’s one of those wild ones. (Here’s her account of the conference with some more photos. The comments are Fab-O.)]

And there's my fave instigator, looking cute as a button!

And there’s my fave cute-as-a-button instigator!

But that’s not the funniest present Gloria brought me. Oh, no siree. Do y’all remember the famous OMG post? (That’s the one about living with Oversized Male Genitalia.)

Well, she brought me THE BOOK!

This book really made the rounds. (Here it is with Donna Newton and Piper Bayard)

This book really made the rounds. (Here it is with Donna Newton and Piper Bayard)

This thing ROCKS, and I had to share a few snippets with y’all so you could share my joy.

Hubby and I browsed all the chapters on the plane. It’s a long ride from Texas to California with a tired toddler, and we deserved our giggles (especially with the flu coming on).

My favorite is still Chapter 1 ~ You Are Not Alone: Huge Penises in History.

Check out this snazzy opener:

There are some men who have achieved huge things despite their huge penises. Your high school history textbooks probabably didn’t mention their OMG. But, the truth is, in front of every one of these great men was a great big penis.

[Really???]

For example, Benjamin Franklin:

Many of Franklin’s inventions were inspired by his enormous phallus, including the lightning rod and bifocals, which allowed him to see both the tip and the base of his penis at the same time.

Then there was Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart:

Mozart’s obsession with music began at a very young age, when he realized that sitting at a piano helped conceal the massive bulge in his pantaloons.

Leonardo da Vinci:

Why is Mona Lisa smiling awkwardly? Because, as Leonardo later recorded in a journal, “that devil had, unbeknownst to me, slithered forth from the safety of my stockings as I painted her.”

And finally, Sigmund Freud:

The pain young Freud felt was so severe that he invented modern psychoanalysis to cope with his own troubles.

That last one explains a LOT. “Hysteria” indeed.

I’m still reading the book in depth, if you know what I mean. I’ll let y’all know if I run across any more jewels. Thanks again to Gloria for the hours of entertainment.

Who is your favorite OMG sufferer above? Do you believe it? Would you care to speculate over which other historical or contemporary men are inflicted with OMG? Go on, make up some great reasoning for us…Lord knows, the book’s authors took a ton of latitude themselves. Enquiring minds always want to know about these things here at More Cowbell.

Happy Monday, y’all!

Jenny

    I’m still chortling over “in front of every one of these great men was a great big penis.” Where else would it be? And you HAD to talk about looking for more “jewels”? And you wonder why you’re blamed for inspiring all the other salacious comments in our circle, LOL.

    Glad you all had a great time, though it stinks that you got sick. Next time: pack Vitamin C!

      I DID pack Vitamin C (and I actually took it daily). But everything’s bigger in Texas, including their flu apparently. My temp was between 100-102 for seven days. It was evil.

      And you about killed me with “Where else would it be?” I guess I hadn’t thought of it quite that way. Leave it to you…

    Ha ha ha ha!! (clutching sides)

    I’m not sure who my favorite OMG sufferer might be, but I wonder if this syndrome plagues species other than humans.

    I think that Moby Dick suffered from OMG, as do most of the male whales of his particular family of whale. 😉 Ahab, the captain chasing Mr. Dick (whales are polite and appreciate propriety with the use of their names), was most likely a sufferer of UMG and consequently infuriated by a fish with such an endowment.

    Incidentally, I think a list of historic UMG sufferers would be worth a chuckle…

    Gloria, love the hat!

    • KA-SHNORT! on Mr. Dick.

      So! Zack! Does your significant other tell others she lives with a Big Dick? Which illogically leads to a question I’ve had for some time.

      Why is Big Dick so often used as a slam — to imply a man is a pain-in-the-a…

      O! Never mind.

      Thanks for the hat love. It looks even better when it’s not holding Jenny’s Handerpants.

        When I am in a relationship, then I pay attention to what my significant other says. (I can neither confirm nor deny the usage of the Big Dick phrase)

        However, former significant o’s that have not left on good terms have never retorted to genitalia-based slams, and former relationships that ended amicably have all retained a “can I keep in touch with you?” in a potential future relationship clause that we apparently have maintained. (that sounds nerdy as hell)

        It looks like it was fun!

      That’s hilarious. I don’t think the UMG sufferers would get the same kick out of it that we are. There is a section where Hitler is mentioned as a sufferer of UMG (I’m assuming the “U” is for “undersized”…but I can’t find it right now. Sorry, still feverish.

      By the way, there is a section called “All God’s Creatures, Great and Greater: Huge Penises in Nature.” (Yes, really.)

      Mr. Dick is mentioned by species:
      Whale penises can measure up to 8 feet long, which is less impressive when you consider that whale vaginas are often 12 feet deep.

      Moral of the story: Stop feeling sorry for Mr. Dick, dude.

    I will get you and some other WANAs on The Bull at Billy Bob’s one day. Hmmmm. This inquiring mind wonders if he suffers from O.M.G.

    Since I decided to make a solo trip to Billy Bob’s for some ain’t-your-average-boudoir-pics, I’ll hang upside down and check it out.

    Glad you’re on the mend. I knew I should have given you the Bitch Slap Those Germs! hand sanitizer. [They sold It with the Maybe you Touched your Genitals sanitizer, but I knew you already owned that one.]

  8. Oddly enough, many, many moons ago (back when ao-hell was the place to hang out) a guy approached me via IM. The conversation started off innocuous enough until he sent me a picture of his OMG. The 13″ monstrosity was as big as my forearm…and was received unsolicited. As you’ve probably gathered, I’m pretty outspoken. My response to him was “What in the name of God makes you think I’d want anything to do with that? If I wanted to look like I’ve just had a baby down there, I’d have a baby.” When he told me that lost of “chicks” wanted his OMG, I told him, “Yeah. As a novelty, maybe. How many come back for seconds?” Apparently I offended him.😡 (Just goes to show you shouldn’t send out pictures of your man bits without asking first.)

    My favorite OMG from the above list? Ben Franklin.

      It seems that OMG sufferers are rare enough that there are tons of guys that think that OMG = ladies knocking down your door.

If they wanted me to bother wasting my time with them they had to write me an essay. They had two choices. Tell me about their hottest sexual experience or wildest fantasy… If it was good enough to turn me on, I’d consider talking to them.😉
