Unsuitably phrased question November 1, 2006 2:19 AM   Subscribe

The way that this question is phrased is boorish and doesn't belong on the front page of Ask Metafilter.

Something like "Question about the capacity of the human vagina" would really have been enough for the short description.

In case it gets edited, here is the current short description:

How many ping pong balls can a woman, who is used to shooting them out her pussy, fit into her vagina.

Hrmm... I think given the recent complaints about specificity of front page questions, this question isn't too far off the mark. Is it the use of the word pussy that offends you?

Mostly, yes. I think any indication that the question is about vagina capacity or erotic ping-pong ball tricks would be perfectly specific enough for the front page.

Wow, the internet is sometimes boorish

Don't forget the followup first sentence, for fuck sakes: "We were thinking about trying to find a "stripper" that would be able to shoot ping pong balls out of her vagina for a friend."

I'm usually against any kind of complaint about a question "not belonging" on the AskMe front page, but I kinda agree with teleskiving on the phrasing. One of the mods should email the poster and offer to change it to something simpler and less needlessly stupid, like "How many ping pong balls can a woman fit into her vagina?"

I thought it was a lousy question and loutishly phrased but by the time I'd seen it, other people hadn't flagged it and I assumed maybe it was just me being fussy. By the time I got up this morning the whole thread had turned into an idiot wankfest so I'm a little sorry I left it there but geez, if anyone needs some help from the AskMe community in understanding female anatomy and strippers, it's this guy.

i knew i was being fussy when i flagged it, but i flagged it anyway--not because it was a stupid question or an improper use of ask.me, but because it was needlessly crude. it's not that hard to be polite and this wasn't. it's the ask.me equivalent of littering and i think it degrades the place.

I totally agree -- I am so glad someone finally brought this issue to the forefront! The preferred nomenclature is "table tennis," not "ping pong"! The question, therefore, is how many table tennis balls she can hold in her vagina and shoot out of her pussy.

Look, obviously this guy's friend is a pro-table tennis player who needs to practice for the upcoming championships, but can't afford electricity (he's working himself out of poverty using his amazing talent for table tennis, see) so using an automatic ping pong ball is out of the question. The asker was just curious as to how feasible a human replacement would be.

I thought it was interesting. It was pretty poorly worded and frat boy-ish, but I like the weird hypothetical questions. AskMe has been slow and dull the last few days, and that question and the poop pushing one were a welcome relief (!). I didn't see whatever bs jessamyn deleted though, and I didn't see what became of the thread overnight, so of course it's her call.

How many ping pong balls can a fat man, who is used to shooting them out his bellybutton, fit into his navel.

We were thinkning about trying to find a male "stripper" that would be able to shoot ping pong balls out of his navel for a friend. After much discussion, which involved midgets with salad bowls on their heads catching said ping pong balls, we were wondering how many ping pong balls could a fat man potential fit into his navel?

Nobody has a problem with the midgets and the salad bowls? I thought midget tossing was the bachelor party thing, but how degrading to make them catch table tennis balls.

I apologize to anyone that I offended with my question. I know that I could have worded it a little better and wish I could go and change it but I was typing fast and my roommates and I were in a heated debate over the subject.

I know that it is an odd topic for debate but, who can say where half the crazy stuff on the interwebs comes from? It is the wide variety of topics that are covered here that make ask/TalkMeta and the internet in general a good resource for open and honest discussion.

I promise next time I ask something it will be related to something more serious. Like religion or politics or something equally as non-flammatory.

Peace be with you.

What is the point of propelling pingpong balls from the vagina? Does it have something to do with sex? I think "none" and "no" respectively: it reminds me of prepube boys who find "tufted titmouse" hilarious and "dirty."

I can't believe Jessamyn answered that silly and stupid question, but as she did I must doff my imaginary hat to her: when one works the Reference desk one learns more than facts.

THE SNARKY RESPONSE: I take it you've never been to Tijuana.

THE RHETORICAL RESPONSE: What is the point of being the world's "furthest eyeball popper"? What is the point of lighting farts on fire? What is the point of juggling? What is the point of life?

THE LITERAL RESPONSE: The person doing so is employed as an adult entertainer. Some people find entertainment in individuals doing unusual things. Some people find particular entertainment in individuals doing unusual things with "private" body parts. The "point" is for the performer to meet her customers' entertainment expectations by differentiating herself from other adult entertainers.

This was a product of a "heated" conversation between young male roommates? News at 11!

I have never understood girls who get offended at a word for vagina. You don't see boys running around saying 'don't call it a johnson, that's offensive!' *insert whining tone at your own whim*. Maybe this is one of the many reasons we make less in the work place and get so much less respect as a gender. We get our panties in a wad over the stupidest things.

I, for one, loved this question and it's one of the reasons I like ask.me. It's in the same vein of 'can a guy rip off his own head off.'

Additionally, the question can't be answered - vaginas don't come in standard sizes. Just like how many ping pong balls might fit up Botunda's butt will be different to how many might fit up someone else's (previous commenter excepted).

Aww. You still care. My brief bit of schoolboy Latin was more on-point than the legion of "Yeah, I also had sex once and think that means about five" answers. And it was certainly as useful as answers that start "I have no idea, but...".

But you only harp on my foible because you recognize it in yourself, and I'm heartened that you still have a place in your life for making sure to bring it up whenever possible. Other people might have moved on since then, but luckily for both of us, you've kept it fresh.

Yes, Botunda. If you play your cards right, you can ask absolutely anything and get away with it. You might even tickle a few fancies and find yourself labelled, lovingly of course, the knave of Ask Metafilter.

You may think I'm being glib, that I'm having a bit of fun at your expense, but I assure you this is not the case. By following this advice you'll discover a point-by-point strategy for executing--and getting away with--your most depraved wants and desires: how to setup an international blackmarket organ trade, how to sell fake products online to unsuspecting consumers and fund your fledgling commercial space expedition agency, how to kill a loved one and make it look like a freak accident (hint: hot-air-balloon rides), etc.

You need only follow three simple rules:

1.) Assume the proper voice. Generally speaking, the MeFi collective appreciates well punctuated verbosity in all things, from the sharpest snarks to the driest clinical explanations.

2.) Follow the guidelines. This seems simple, but occasionally your question may, at its core, fall short of the required "spirit" of Ask Metafilter. If this is the case, forcibly alter the intent of your question, however ridiculously, to conform to said "spirit" of site.

3.) Make it theoretical! Respondents will feel uncomfortable facilitating your depravity without the proper suspension of disbelief. Find a realistic premise for your sociopathic yearnings: perhaps you're writing a novel or screenplay?

Good luck. I look forward to your next thread.

I really rarely give jokey answers, and can't think of a single bullshit answer I've given. Please avail yourself of this time to comb through my posting history. And again, you might note that you've given bullshit answers yourself.

And no, I haven't been to a Thai sex bar, and I wasn't bragging about it. Were I bit more uncouth, I'd suggest that just because your mother does her act at one doesn't mean you should assume that it's the only place one can see a woman shoot things from her vagina.

Jessamyn, you're an asshole.

That comment was both untrue and unkind. I think an apology is owed, digitalis.

Could have a grade-A flameout in the making, folks. Who's got marshmallows?

It was horribly offensive, juvenile and stupid chatfilter.

Good moring to you too, cupcake!

Look, we try to err on the side of inclusion because it sucks to have your question deleted especially if you don't really understand what's going on. If we think we can help keep a train wreck from happening by deleting off-topic comments (like yours) in a borderline question, we'll try to let it stay. That's what I did here, it turned out to not be a good idea, so after trying to give the question a half-decent answer, I gave up and deleted it, wrote two emails to the OP, and contributed to this thread explaining what was going on.

I have no idea which part of this makes me an asshole, but I can be a bit thick that way, feel free to help me out here.

I think this pretty much scuppers the whole metadating page idea, doesn't it now?

I think this is the metadating page.
