  1. Just because you are concerned about something it doesn’t mean you have to catalogue those concerns for pubication in a national newspaper. The article also meets rhoda’s Carmen Miranda test.

  2. From the article:
    I’m hoping that if this relationship breaks down, it will be because I didn’t take the bins out or she didn’t feed the cat, as opposed to the usual: me, being scared of vaginas.

    I think this statement gives us a great insight into this person and their relationships.
    She expects her relationships to breakdown because she didn’t take the bin out or feed the cat?
    Not exactly a deal breaker is it, assuming your relationships are solid, built on mutual respect and care, without being a narcissistic self-righteous prig.

    Then, this is the Guardian…

    “I’m scared of your vagina!”

    Boy, we’ve all been there at least once, haven’t we?

    Can’t say your average dick is much more appealing than the typical roast beef sandwich.

    I can only speak for myself, but I suspect the typical roast beef sandwich would be more filling.

  5. Sorry, rhoda, you’ll have to explain the Carmen Miranda test for me. The only thing I know about her is that she wore fruit on her head.

    Sorry, rhoda, you’ll have to explain the Carmen Miranda test for me.

    Found on the innertubes…

    Emily Balcetis, of Ohio University, and David Dunning, of Cornell University, published a study, in the journal Psychological Science, called Cognitive Dissonance and the Perception of Natural Environments. Balcetis and Dunning describe an experiment in which the test subjects “were taken outside to a highly trafficked, grassy quad at the centre of campus … The experimenter handed subjects a Carmen Miranda costume, including a grass skirt, coconut bra, hat adorned in plastic fruit, and flower lei. Subjects were told to put on the costume, walk the width of the quad alone, and return, before answering questions about their emotions and their experience.

    It should be noted that Ohio University is located in Athens, Ohio, which is located in Athens County, Ohio. Athens County is world renowned for the quality and potency of the marijuana grown there.

    If I’d gone to Ohio University rather than Miami University, I’d have never lived to 21.

  7. A normal range would be from wey-hey to meh. Saying meh to your partner’s sheath (in certain circles at least) would probably be less acceptable than oohh sorry i’ve got a phobia. Those circles being those that people spend inordinate time and energy claiming highground over each other through their afflictions.

  8. The Carmen Miranda test when applied to a newspaper column is, does it go I,I,I,I,I. Excessive use of the first person pronoun invariably is a warning that you don’t wanna read it, and a fair indicator that it will turn up on timworstall the same day.

    No psychology prof – stoned or not – could have come up with anything so commonsensical.

  10. TMB,
    A friend of mine related the story of his first sexual experience when he told the lady he had heard that women had teeth “down there”. Nothing she said, convinced him, so she told him to have a look. He replied, “You’ve convinced me. You don’t have teeth there. Mind you, your gums are in a hell of a state!”.

    And when they go “me me me me meeee” it’s known as the Beaker test.

  12. “If I’d gone to Ohio University rather than Miami University, I’d have never lived to 21.”

    Oh, my! I am named for my late uncle who was a well known history professor at Miami of Ohio.
