"Would I Get In Trouble If I Blogged That?"

That's an idea for the name for a new blog that I came up with after I said "Would I get in trouble if I blogged that?" in reference to an idea for the name of a new blog that I was going to blog about. The answer to the question was: yes.

Don't try to drag it out of me! ← another good name for a blog.

Sounds like a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode. Larry David gets a blog.

Coketown said...

When in doubt, blog anyway. The only people who would care already think badly of you; this would just confirm their suspicions. Everyone else would be delighted and squeal with childish glee.

Marc said...

Also reminds me of Garrison Keillor (before his politics got in the way of his humor), who once did a bit on "Is the following joke too inappropriate to use on stage in mixed company?" whereupon he told said joke. I think you could find a way to spill the beans while maintaining plausible deniability, Ann...

traditionalguy said...

Yes.

traditionalguy said...

But Groucho Marx would do it anyway.

edutcher said...

Also sounds like something Molly Ivins would have blogged.

It would be a good title either for a real belchfire or a humorous one.

Trooper York said...

When I post a paticular offensive topic like Barbara Bush having sex with midgets I always attach the same tag;

"Why this blog exists."

If you aren't getting in trouble you aren't doing it right.

One more example of the female propensity for multi-tasking.

traditionalguy said...

I would avoid calling it Assange's Freedom of Speech Blog. That would get you more attention than you want.

Lem said...

Why not just stick to safe stuff :)

doofus said...

You disgust me.

Surely you don't think..

Clyde said...

Define "trouble."

I just used an anagram of my name for mine. It was either going to be Recycled Sip or Spider Cycle. I went with the former...

Trooper's posting is as good a potential springboard for this as any, I suppose:

Columbia professor is charged with incest, accused of bedding young relative for 3 years

EXCERPT: "[Professor David]
Epstein, who specializes in American politics and voting rights, has taught at Harvard and Stanford and often is quoted by news organizations. He also has blogged on The Huffington Post."


Yeesh.

peter hoh said...

Disgust me yet?

Clyde said...

@ Kent

Yeah, that fits the definition of "trouble."

"Mist me yet?" works if you're German and hate Bush.

AllenS said...

Sources said the victim was over 18 when the relationship began in 2006 and that the two often exchanged twisted text messages.

Kent,

Twisted Sister?

kent said...

Twisted Sister?

Only if she looks like Dee Snider. ;)

Trooper York said...

Wow. This is getting to be like posting on Literotica. Cool.

Trooper York said...

And by the way, any of those stories in the celebrity section that have to do with having sex with Angie Dickensen, Charo, Stella Stevens, or Joey Heatherton have absolutely nothing to do with me. I swear.

kent said...

Literotica

Tell me straight up, Trooper: if I look this up, will I end up curled fetally into a corner somewhere sobbing uncontrollably, like that one time you had me Google "South Park" and "slash fiction" together...?

Trooper York said...

No. But don't do it at work. Or link to the photos. But the stories are pretty cool.

Not that I spend a lot of time over there or write stories or anything like that there.

Just sayn'

MamaM said...

Just once, maybe twice, I'd like to hear the disgust and shame summed up in a "Fie on you" for variation.

If the new name would incite Fie, I'm all for it.

Trooper York said...

Well I am a Fie-Foe.

Unless of course there is a Fee involved.

Who knew this thread would descend to the level of talking bean stalks and fum?

MamaM said...

Well I am a Fie-Foe.

I find TY to be more Fum than Fie-Foe.

Fum: v. 1.To play upon a fiddle.

Follow me, and fum as you go.

"Sources said the victim was over 18 when the relationship began in 2006 and that the two often exchanged twisted text messages."

Why is this the govt's business? And why is the other party to the crime called a "victim"? She seems to have committed the same crime? Who cares what these people texted to each other?

chickelit said...

As in "Fumbler On The Roof"?

MamaM said...

All over, from what I can tell.
But I need to take this elsewhere or risk being the first to be feid upon.

Revenant said...

These are all good questions.

The answer to the second one is that the woman is always the victim. For example, when two college students get drunk and boink, it is the man, not the woman, who gets arrested for having sex with someone who was too drunk to consent.

Coketown said...

Incest is still a crime? That'll be next on the agenda, I suppose.

kent said...

Incest is still a crime?

Outrageous. Where's the next generation of leftists supposed to come from once we've criminalized that, for pity's sake...?!?

Lem said...

You people dragged it out of her?

You people aren't going to get away with this no more..

former law student said...

As long as we're redefining marriage, let Prof. Epstein marry his young female relative. Woody Allen did it*

*His son's sister by adoption, nothing to do with Woody.

Trooper York said...

Hey wasn't Columbia where the Professor faked the noose thingy.

Maybe it was fake sex with a fake relative.

Trooper York said...

Of course if it is true he can always transfer to the University of Alabama. Just sayn'

former law student said...

troop: you New Yorkers should set up a "young female relative" swap. Epstein could meet Ms. Cohen, Cohen could meet Ms. Perl, and Perl could hook up with Ms. Epstein.

AllenS said...

If you have a problem with my quote, Professor, you should take it up with the NY Daily News.

They report on news, much like you blog about events. Whether you agree or disagree with the topic, doesn't matter. Someone thought that the public/readership might be interested.

Fen said...

Why is this the govt's business?

The partner was his 24 year old daughter. Class E Felony (I think).

Of course, I don't understand why these laws are still on the books. Consenting adults who should be able to marry and adopt.

t-man said...

Fen,

Great idea. The man who was having sex with his daughter should just marry her and then adopt a baby girl.... lather, rinse, repeat.

Fen said...

Sorry, are you being sarcastic?

I'm just using the same argument used to support gay marriage.

And I'm serious. I think the reason incest is taboo is because of the offspring produced. Since abortion and adoption are still on the table, I don't see what the objection would be other than this "morality" that everyone insists is archaic.

AST said...

I don't know what "that" is, but if it's David Epstein, yes, you would get in trouble, if only with me and others who consider incest a perversion and an abomination.

I had read about your hippie days, but had assumed you'd outgrown all that "Do your own thing" childishness. Or maybe it's just that you can't be consistent by approving of homosexuality while condemning incest.

There lies the problem with gay rights. Once you accept that sodomy is OK, then so is necrophilia, bestiality, pederasty, pedophilia every other form of faux or real sex and fetish that meets your "orientation." It opens a can of worms.

I saw a rerun of Bones this evening about a member of a pony fetish group who was murdered by one of his "riders" with a hoof trimming knife. I thought it was absurd, but checking the internet I found a number of sites for people of that inclination. So I guess even that horse is out of the barn.

Revenant said...

Since abortion and adoption are still on the table, I don't see what the objection would be other than this "morality" that everyone insists is archaic.

And as we all know, when you want a good solid standard for moral behavior, you should look to the government for your guidance. Damn those liberals for taking us away from that core conservative principle.

Revenant said...

Once you accept that sodomy is OK, then so is necrophilia, bestiality, pederasty, pedophilia every other form of faux or real sex and fetish that meets your "orientation."

That's like saying that once you accept that heterosexual sex is OK, so is rape. If you're going to deliberately ignore the importance of consent you should have the intellectual honesty to be consistent about it.

Hell, one quick, horrified gander at Joe Biden should be enough to sell anyone on that theory.
