Boing boing, testicle talc, and intarweb community randomness


First off, I have been remiss in my side bar and left out a really great site that I check often -- Boing Boing.

This brings us to the testicle talc (smooth segue, no?). The Good Reverend sent me the link to a Boing Boing post about nut powder, and suggested I follow the comments for some pure comedy. Specifically, comment #5 and the link therein.

How the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club discussions boards happened to collect such a concentration of smartasses, and how the subject of nut powder managed to spawn over 32 pages of discussion hints at the sometimes-genius capacity of online communities to elicit art and humor from the "general populous."

For instance, in expounding the virtues of Gold Bond powder, one poster stated:

as someone put it once, it's like a 1,000 little gnomes with icey hands massaging your boys.


Awesome.

Enjoy watching the generation of a thousand inside jokes by hundreds of strangers in the intartubes,

Bp

Under the heading of TMI, let me say:

Those of us who ride horses and/or live in hot climates know first hand: Gold Bond. It's the stuff. Regular baby powder pales by comparison.
