What the f--k is this?

That would be an article about male mutual masturbation, and the benefits thereof.

Followed by some comments debating the merits and metamerits of the article.

Actually, it is not f--k, and I think that may be the point.

Thanks Doug. I'm still having trouble with this English thing.

My posting to MeTa may have been a knee-jerk reaction to what seemed, at first glance, to be a really really stupid topic. With all the juvenile crap that's been popping up here recently, my trigger finger is a little itchy. Upon closer inspection, I see that it's not really the bathroom humor I thought it was. Still, "waxing the flagpole" and the "cheese dip" joke are, IMO, less than appropriate front page fodder.

I'll try to control myself in the future.

I thought it was pretty witty. The Photoshop tennis thread turned into the circle-jerk thread, and posting this thread directed people's focus towards masturbation instead of a thread war.

Kudos, I say.

Obviously, it's a giant opportunity to crack one-liners.

Bully for us!!!

Woah. As I was in the middle of reading the article linked to in that thread, I suddenly realized that the random mp3 playing here was speaking about a Happy Jack.

Reason prevails?
