Drill, Baby, Drill

It may look like the setup for a porn video, but an enterprising dental practice in Munich has outfitted the staff in busty garments:

“The most important thing is to take away patients’ fear. The sight of cleavages gets patients narcotised and distracted from the pain rather quickly. Some patients’ mouths are already wide open on entering the practice.”

The boss’s name is Klarkowski, but we’re not going to be more specific. Instead, today’s Stinque Challenge: Which one’s the dentist?

Dentist uses sexy dresses to distract patients [Metro UK]

I got a vasectomy last week. Not sure it would have helped had the nurses been dressed this way.

I’ve never understood the phobia of dentists. I know it hurts–I’ve had enough oral surgery to know (for braces) but why do they freak a lot of people out? Mind you I’ve also never had a cavity either.

@Serolf Divad:
Probably not. I know they wouldn’t have helped after my surgery last year where I had a catheter plugged in for two weeks.

@ManchuCandidate: @Serolf Divad: I’ve been married to a man for forty-six years, the kindest, wittiest man I ever met, and I loved his mother, too. Go for the Good. Go for the Good, Girls.

Changing my user name and over and out, lynn

@Serolf Divad: Good man! Hope you’re feeling fine.

@ManchuCandidate: The sound of the drill freaks some people out. You hear it in the waiting room, etc. By the time some folks are in the chair, they’re nervous wrecks.

JNOV, who had her first cavity at 33 years old, had her wisdom teeth out at 19 under nitrous (and still had tears running, even though she couldn’t feel a thing), and needs a cleaning something awful.

the dentist looks like steve martin in Little Shop of Horrors.
what about the ladeez???
he wears a g-string and we get to “narcosize” ourselves with new meaning for getting a lollipop at the dentist?

and what does he have for his gay patients?

I’m guessing that the dentist is the brunette woman second from the right in the front row.

Apropos of nothing: I’ve seen multiple news outlets refer to their “Twitter analysis of the #SOTU” and am I the only one who thinks that the words “Twitter” and “analysis” do not belong together?

@Capt Howdy: Or straight female ones?

@SanFranLefty: My bet is on the blonde with glasses.

I apologize in advance because I was pissed that someone told me about this this morning but I have to pass this on:

Dog Hung and Set on Fire for Chewing Bible
SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. — A 65-year-old woman is accused of killing her nephew’s dog because it had chewed on her Bible, and she said it was a “devil dog.”
Deputies said that Andy Fowler called them last Tuesday to report that his aunt had hung his dog. Fowler said his aunt, Miriam Smith, admitted hanging his 1-year-old pit bull, Diamond.
Officers found the partially burned body of the dog under a pile of grass with an orange electrical cord around its neck at the home on John Worthy Road in Pacolet.

what would jesus do?
I think he would kick her stupid ass.

good quote from the piece

Steven Weinberg said it best,

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.


the one with the distinguished nose

T/J i’m a little freaked out right now. at 2 o’clock today we are going to look at the boat Dallas Green is selling. what do i say? and the question that all potential buyers ask is, “why are you selling it” which won’t be asked. should i say something? give condolences or pretend i don’t know a thing about Christina? i really want your opinions on whether i should say anything. my heart is racing. if the boat is named ‘Christina’ i will entirely lose it.

@baked: Darling, who is Dallas Green? Mum’s a little behind the times.

@Snorri Haraldsson:
the grandfather of 9 year old Christina Green who was murdered during the attack on Gabby.
he used to be the manager of the phillies. (baseball team, dear)

@baked: Right. That Dallas Green. Personally, I would not ask why he’s selling it but I would find a way to acknowledge what happened. He might well be grateful. People tend to get isolated because we all don’t like to talk about it. Whatever it is.

Back row are periodontal specialists. Two on the right do all the veneers. Dufus in front is the hygienist.

@Snorri Haraldsson:
find a way? i don’t have the words. i may not go. i will blubber.
maybe that’s it..if i get up the nerve, just blubber and hug him.
words unnecessary.
unless someone has some specific words, i am really at a loss.
because it’s unspeakable.


Good man! Hope you’re feeling fine.

I drove myself home and was back at work the next day. The procedure itself was by no means painless, but recovery for me has been pretty swift. I’ll be heading back to the gym in a day or two (taking it easy, of course for this first week or so).

@mellbell: Who is wearing glasses? Am I in need of new contacts?

@baked: I think it’s totally appropriate to ask him how he and his family are doing in such a trying time and that they have your condolences. Christina’s brother and mom and dad were at the State of the Union address, by the way.

Oh, and if the boat is named “Christina” there is nothing wrong with bursting into tears. And that would answer the question as to why he’s selling it.

maybe yer right. I thought miss nose had glasses.

@SanFranLefty: Perhaps it’s just an inexplicable shadow, but the blonde second from left in the first row has a dark line across the bridge of her nose.

@SanFranLefty: @Snorri Haraldsson:
thank you…that’s helpful , den mommy. there will be tears, and i will have to say something. the sincerity of my grief for him will find the words. i am hoping, the tears might have to suffice. i was ripped up about that little girl before i knew she had any connection here, and now this?
and mum, i can always count on you too.

maybe its the seam on the clown nose.


I wasnt going to mention this but then it showed up on SlashFlim. you really need to watch the greatest movie EVAH.

part 1

part 2

“The movie was shot over two years beginning in 2008, after eight long years of development. The film was critically acclaimed in the country and became the second highest grossing Indian film of all time.”

@Capt Howdy:

I’d assume the guy in front. ;)

@Capt Howdy:
See also this. My favorite line from the bit:

Osteen: There is a religious – I call it a spirit or something that says we have to be poor and broke and defeated and sad to show people that we’re really humble, and that we really love God. And I don’t believe that.

Yeah, who needs to believe in a “spirit” like the guy who said that in Matthew 6:19-21 or Luke 12:33-34? Real Christians know that’s not true – fuck that guy! ;)

methinks he deflects to much.
like this tho:

Osteen, who is rich, said it would be an insult to God to apologize for that blessing.

last night to avoid the sotu I was watching a program on the antichrist on one of the discovery channels. and who was featured?
Teddy Haggard! it was awsum.

@Capt Howdy: Fine piece of movie making. Love it the robot’s name is Chitti. Why didn’t they call it Chitti Chitti Bang Bang? The Russkie voice over makes it all extra special though I have to say I found the lack of dance numbers disappointing. Especially when, judging by Chitti’s first appearance, robot spent a lot of time in ballet class: elevée, attitude, ronde de jambe!

My big quibble is how come Chiiti turns out so homely? WTF, dude? What, Hrithik Roshan wasn’t available?

@Snorri Haraldsson:
I was also a bit disapointed with the lack of a finale dance number.
but I wonder if we were seeing all of it. SlashFilm say it is the most expensive movie ever made in India and the second biggest grossing.
it seemed kind of short for that.

@al2o3cr: Exactly. Plus, when asked flat-out how to attain salvation, Christ answered:

“Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

“Which ones?” [the young man] inquired.

Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.”

“All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
-Matthew 19-21

Note that he didn’t say “Call yourself a Christian” or “Believe in the virgin birth”. He didn’t even recount the parts of the Ten Commandments having to do with God and idolatry. What he said, basically, was “Treat people like I would”, and then, “Give away all your stuff”.

We need to return to these values, true Biblical values, as “Christians”, IMHO. Those of us who ascribe to the belief, that is.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One:
I dont think I could give away my Plasma. but I take your meaning.

The 41 year old dentist is on the left. Since they’re in Munich and they’re already in costume why not use beer as anesthetic?
@al2o3cr: @Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Interesting observation by Osteen to equate “poor and broke and defeated and sad”. Survey after survey after survey finds that wealth has nothing to do with how happy people are. Most of the happiest people in the world have very little in the way of tangible assets. Maybe Osteen should go back and read 1 Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

@Dave H: And thus, what I found interesting about it: It’s not the dude doing the exploiting.

those germans. so ahead of the curve.

so who is mr. pinup in the center?
(to lazy to look)

and why isnt he wearing Lederhosen?

@Dave H:
“Money can’t buy happiness.”

Gabrielle Solís: “Of course it can! That’s just what we tell poor people.”

@jwmcsame: Any feminist conversation about strippers needs to include strippers, who typically have their own strong opinions.

@nojo: Can’t recall the source, but I read something semi-recently to the effect that stripping to put yourself through college is not just a cliche.


money cant buy happiness, but it can rent it.
– me

is this the right time to admit I have worked as an exotic dancer?
no photos available. sorry.

@Capt Howdy: most strippers are better conversationalists than clothed chicks in bars. except for the one who told me her name was currency and then told me that her name meant money.

in my experience drag queens and strippers are some of the smartest and most grounded people on earth.

@Capt Howdy: C’mon, you can share the photos with us. We’re all friends here.

not even if I had them.

I was a wild child. what can I say. I had fun. I can say that.

@Capt Howdy: It is always the right time to admit that.

@Capt Howdy: Heh. I disrobed as part of my living for a while, both off-Broadway and at Splash, back when they still had showers. Champs and The Eagle too.

we bought the boat. and it was a blubberfest. i couldn’t control myself. we were tooling around the water and Dallas says, i haven’t used it since my kids and grandkids were here over xmas– and his voice cracked. that’s all it took for me to start babbling and blubbering. the name of the boat, btw, is DUGOUT. i’m honored to own Christina’s boat. we talked about her more than the boat. he said everyone called him from barry to the PM of T&C and he’s still receiving sacks of mail. he said his family is very close and they’ll get through it. he’s a hell of a nice guy. so i made him cry. i’m a real peach. we’re going to name it “Christina.”

@baked: Thanks for sharing. He sounds like a nice guy. Also, I think it’s bad luck to rename a boat.

Probably not the correct placce for this but does anyone here ever look at Nick Anderson. He nailed the Baaaachman/ repug rebuttal


if I am correct there is no correct place here.
that was awsum.

sort of like Athena springing from the forehead of Zeus.

John Milton’s Paradise Lost interprets this myth as a model for the birth of Sin from the head of Satan

I will see your TJ and raise you an inexplicable grand piano on sand bar.

I love this story.

Here’s a mystery that gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “piano bar.”

A grand piano recently appeared on a sandbar in Biscayne Bay, about 200 yards from the Quayside condominiums off Northeast 107th Street. Whoever put it there placed it at the highest point of the sandbar so that it’s not underwater during high tide.

How and why the piano got there is a mystery. A grand piano weighs at least 650 pounds and is unwieldly to move, said Bob Shapiro, a salesman at Piano Music Center in Pembroke Park. “You don’t take it out there in a rowboat,” Shapiro said.

@SanFranLefty: @Capt Howdy:
tell me about it! the senseless death of that bright, vibrant child hit me especially hard, and there i was…WEIRD. i don’t think i ever bought anything that involved so much weeping. at one point he was comforting me! rat, being rat, got teary eyed, but was most interested in who called him and when he was leaving for spring training. and thank god for it. Dallas and i were openly sobbing.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: @TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ:
noooooo are you serious? i’m stuck with DUGOUT??? i’m going to ask the googles…….

AHA! this is actually interesting..there are loopholes and “ceremonies”
that involve alcohol! to rename your boat and avoid the curse…


Men who strip and Christina’s boat. Stinque at its finest.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: That was a tad earlier than my time, I think… Interesting. As a concept.

@baked: Didn’t I tell you you’d cope?

@Snorri Haraldsson:
mother knows best
i don’t know if you would descibe it as coping, but i got through it, such as. my head is spinning. move over a little.

@baked: Everything I know about boating, I learned from Girl Scouts, which probably explains why my knowledge of alcohol-involved curse breakers is non-existent.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ:
i was never a girl scout and i know nothing about boating except being a passenger. i was pulling ropes today and learned how to tie it to the dock.
woo. it’s a start. i was delighted to read how to change the name without creating ‘the perfect storm’. did you read that? creepy! i’m very nervous about the whole thing and still stunned. rat twisted my arm. i don’t think we can afford it. rat behaves like we still Have Money. i would have put it in savings, where we lost so much.

@Snorri Haraldsson: Did they have sex clubs back in your day? Did you ever meet President Buchanan at one of them?

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: I’m so tired. Jet lag is killing me and Jack LaLanne has gone to that big Bally in the sky. And now I have to learn about you doing things at Splash when it still had showers???!!1. And we still have no pictures?? Jesus! Between you, Howdy and Cheap Boy we should have our own calendar. It could be like Dieux de Stade except butch.

@mellbell: I love you too. And Catt does his best.

@Snorri Haraldsson: They took pictures of me at The Eagle. For a long time they were on the website.

@mellbell: I love you too. I love everyone here almost as much as I love my reflection, which is saying something.

THIS IS FUCKING RIDICULOUS! I shoveled an hour ago, and already there’s A HALF-FOOT OF SNOW where I shoveled. And I gotta get up as THE ASSCRACK OF DAWN to catch a train that PROBABLY WON’T BE RUNNING. FUCK!

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: I heart you babe. The President Buchanan comment made me bark audibly.

@JNOV: Dry as a fucking bone here in New Mexico. I’m not even going skiing again until we get some more snow. I fucked up my boards pretty bad when I went out a couple of weeks ago, had to pay a shop to run them through the base sander.
