What was I thinking?? It was late, I'm overworked and stressed and things here at The Blob got a little out of hand yesterday with a picture that would have brought an embarrassed rosiness to the cheeks of even a seasoned gynecologist.
I realized today that I can't be trusted and would need to hire an arbiter of good taste (it's a given that none of my readership can be trusted in that capacity either). In that light it was obvious that my first call would go out to Bea Arthur. Long revered as the 5th lady of American TV comedy (with apologies to Linda Lavin) for her pioneering work in the feminist sitcom Maude and later in Golden Girls, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NglGyn8yE20
Ms. Arthur has been busy of late on the college lecture circuit where her discussions of ethics or the lack of same in American popular culture play to SRO audiences nationwide.
A bit of arm twisting, a free crate of Blob Gear and it was a done deal. From here on in Ms. Arthur will parse and vet all posts before they go to print and has an iron clad agreement that her editorial veto will go uncontested.
I did get one concession however and any post can be re-enstated to it's original form if 3 or more people write in with an official request.
Case in point is my photo-shopped image of the faux Jewish Porn film; Butt Mitzvah vol.12 which has garnered so much attention from the Arab world. Arthur was appalled but withdrew her veto when I told her about the post's popularity. As luck would have it the image has even showed up on a major Russian news site!! http://newsru.co.il/pict/big/182322.html (Editor's note: Our knowledge of Cyrillic is not what it used to be...this could merely be neo-nazi propaganda)
And so, with a new sheriff in town, in the name of good taste and per Bea Arthur's recommendation, the vag pic has been downsized but the product depicted is still available from my catalogue. (she ordered two!!)
