    Nothing humorous about that cartoon. The guy is just trying to pass on his genes. He’s attracted to the woman because she has some bodacious ta-tas. You see the same sort of thing in almost any bar on Friday or Saturday night.

    I see the Neanderthal in the back has a cigarette – did smoking kill them off just like it did the dinosaurs?

    I just snarfed my coffee all over my phone. XD

    Well, we do all have a little Neanderthal in us.

    (Yes, I know, not pureblood Africans.)

    I had a co-worker who was 1/4 Lakota. His grandmother said she had a little Indian in her.

    Eventually, we’ll have to conclude that the fully-erect stature was preferred in evolutionary terms purely because it allowed better double-entendre pick-up lines in early bars.

    I downloaded that comic and made it my new wallpaper for my phone. How sad is that? The last time I did that with an image from this blog, it was the tongue eating isopod. That freaked out some of my friends and relatives.

    Janine, OM
    Sometimes when I awaken from a frightening but unremembered dream, I just go the mirror and check my tongue.
    So far so good.

    I knew a guy who used the pick-up line: ‘How do you like your eggs in the mornings?’

    Unfortunately, he was somewhat deflated (excuse the pun!), when one of his intended victims replied: ‘Unfertilised, but thanks anyway!’

    Typicall Spanish pick up line from the Don Juans that patrol the Costa del Sol.

    Don Juan; “Have you got any Spanish in you?”
    Tourist girl; “No”
    Don Juan; “Would you like some?”

  11. says

    Are there any female pick-up lines?

    All pick-up lines I’ve ever heard, in jokes or otherwise, are for men to pick up women. Of course, some of them would work for men picking up men and some of them could potentially be universal, but are there any pick-up lines with a woman being the picker (instead of the pickee)?

    “are there any pick-up lines with a woman being the picker (instead of the pickee)?”

    Makes me think of scene with Ripley evacuating other survivors from the ship/planetoid/space station.
    Suggested line: “Will you sign all your money over to me, or do you want to stay behind and Darwin it out with the Alien?”

  13. Don Quijote says

    Sorry SQB, didn’t see your post till after.
    I think that cartoon wouldn’t work here because all the men would be knuckle walkers and the woman erect.

    I found this on Jonathan Turley’s website. Naturally the crazypastor is from my State – Florida.

    Maybe you have already seen this.

    Pastor Proposes National Atheist Registry To Better Track Godless Citizens
    Published 1, August 31, 2011 Bizarre , Religion , Society55 Comments

    Pastor Mike Stahl is the head of an “internet church” called the Church of the Living Water and has drawn national attention due to a proposal he made a year ago: a national registry for atheists. We have seen religious and political leaders in the last year attacking atheists and even comparing them to terrorists. Stahl’s proposed national registry is the natural outgrowth of such demagoguery.

    Here is Stahl’s proposal:

    Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean, think about it. There are already National Registrys for convicted sex offenders, ex-convicts, terrorist cells, hate groups like the KKK, skinheads, radical Islamists, etc..

    This type of “National Registry” would merely be for information purposes. To inform the public of KNOWN ( i.e., self-admitted) atheists. For example, let’s say you live in Colorado Springs, Colorado , you could simply scroll down (from the I-Net site /Blog ) I would have , to the State of Colorado , and then when you see “Colorado Springs” , you will see the names of all the self-admitted atheist(s) who live there ( e.g., if an atheist’s name happened to be “Phil Small” ). The individual’s physical address, and other known personal information would NOT be disclosed (though, perhaps a photo could be).

    Now , many (especially the atheists ) , may ask “Why do this , what’s the purpose ?” Duhhh , Mr. Atheist , for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net – to INFORM the public! I mean, in the City of Miramar, Florida, where I live, the population is approx. 109,000. My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists! Perhaps we may actually know some. In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism. Or perhaps they are radical atheists, whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s, in that case, if they are business owners, we would encourage all our Christian friends , as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan.

    Frankly , I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea – including the atheists themselves (unless of course, they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion, and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’).

    It is a fascinating glimpse into the mind of intolerance. It is particularly interesting to see Stahl talking about hate groups in the midst of an intolerant proposal like a national registry
