We’ve Spent a Half-Century on This Good Earth and Never Thought of It

“A Florida personal injury lawyer has filed a federal lawsuit against Hewlett-Packard on behalf of rock and roll icon Ernest Evans, better known as Chubby Checker, over an app developed for webOS that ‘adversely affects Chubby Checker’s brand and value…’ That app, called the ‘Chubby Checker,’ allows users to enter a man’s shoe size to estimate the size of his penis.” [Ars Technica]

The Streisand Effect at work: The app was downloaded a few dozen times on a mobile platform that no longer exists. Nobody would have heard of it — except for the lawsuit, which is being publicized all over geekdom.

And now I’ll never hear “Chubby Checker” without breaking into shits & giggles again.

I guess you can just call me Bwana Dik.

Chubby Checker hasn’t had this much ink in years – he should write them a check.

Hah, but nice try old wives tale.

I have small feet, but I’m not hung like a mouse.

Sorry, people. if your name is on the web, it’s fair game. Hell it was that way before the way before the Web. Any smart ass can turn you into a joke. Celebrity is a multi-edged sword and the shit covered edge is the one that eats into your soul.

I would not have even known Chubby Checker was still alive but for this incident.

The feet thing is not legit. The crotch grab is.

@karen marie might be peeking just a little: Yeah. He’s alive? I only keep tabs on Abe Vigoda.

That’s two myths countered.

@nojo:
Hey! HEY!!!!!!!

I’ve heard the OTHER myth from someone no less than dear old mom when I was 18. Not only was the conversation excruciating, awkward and embarrassing (me for her), but I kind of figured she was doing that to discourage me from dating outside the race. SIIIIIIIGHHHH.

@ManchuCandidate: Bro-hugs, bro.

Tho I must say, this is so like straight men. It’s all about size with you guys. You don’t get this among gays. We love the man not the peen. You don’t hear me mock Catt do you? No. I’m sure he does the best he can with what he’s got: The little peen that tried.

@JNOV: Of course musical theatre is a different world. A world where anything can happen. Where Birks can signal ‘Hey, big guy, how’s it hangin’? Lemme getcha a frapuchino so we can share re Phantom. Music of the Night. Sigh.’

But the thrill that comes with spring when anything can happen. That only happens with you.

And Cheyenne Jackson.

Hey, Dodger and everyone else who likes Michelle Obama, and her arms…

I work with an interesting bunch. They hired me, so this fact should come as no surprise.

The day after The State of the Union, some woman I’ve never seen before came up to me to complain, I mean complain about Michelle wearing sleeveless dresses in winter.

Me: She has great arms. If mine were so awesome…

Coworker: You wouldn’t wear sleeveless dresses and gowns to important events, right.

::I take a good look at her. She has squirrely eyes. She’s wearing crooked blue eyeliner. Her hair is kinda yellow and haystakish, and she reeks of crazy. She’s tiny. I could kick her ass, but she probably has a gun in her hair. I think she was rescued from a cabin::

Me: Nope. Never.

Coworker: I like you!

Me thinking: Oh. Shit.

@Benedick:
True. If I were as concerned about my peen as some people I’ve known I’d be driving a super sized HMMV and have an eggplant wrapped in tinfoil shoved down my pants.

The penis-lengthening craze has somewhat subsided now. As Dr. Stubbs explains it, five years ago he was sued by a former patient whose postoperative penis weights fell off while he was receiving a diploma at convocation.

Yeah, Dr Stubbs the penis surgeon. Goes to show that the universe has a sense of humor.
