Pearls of Wisdom: A Compilation of Prince Comments

I am going to completely ignore the elephant in the room – a certain column about sex that has so far generated well over 300 comments. That particular topic does not lend itself to taking cheap shots at commenters.

Instead, here are comments from a grab-bag of articles. The common thread tying them together is simply this: all provide lulz. Sometimes it’s good to take a break from intense, thoughtful discussions about sexual ethics.

“Awkward turtle and friends”

awkward muffin

what to do: stretch out your left hand as if you are going to shake someone’s hand, then make a fist. make a fist with your right hand, as if you are going to punch something, and place it on top of your left fist (palm facing down).

When to make it: when you are passively observing an awkward situation and wish to acknowledge the awkwardness but want to draw minimal attention and remain an innocent bystander. best done in large groups to maximize passive acknowledgementness. also good for practicing shaking someone’s hand and punching them in the face at the same time.

– Posted by dennis, who is a genius. Despite the fact that I was expecting “awkward muffin” to be somehow sexual (thanks, dirty imagination) I fully intend to use this as much as possible. Awesome. Also, the word “acknowledgementness” is cool.

“The daily value of veganism”

For every animal you don’t eat, I’m going to eat three.

– Posted by so there, who had better start eating. Because that is a shitload of animals.

and think of all the things the turkey could have lived for. Justice, Freedom, peace between fowl.

– Posted by ‘ocho, who reminded me how awesome "Chicken Run" was. I should watch that again.

“Snowed in at Princeton”

Why are freshman inundating the Prince’s opinion section? I’m sure you’re nice people, but you still don’t’ know how to write a coherent essay. The University should clear paths…no poop sherlock.

– Posted by 10, whose use of the phrase “no poop sherlock” was momentarily confusing, then hilarious.
