I’m apparently not great at blending hyper-intellectual pretentiousness with dick jokes.

  1. Overwhelmed and confused. I’m a fan of emoticons and removing sneakers and socks – does this mean I’m unsexy and both acceptable AND unacceptable? Haha!
    Explain yourself, New York Magazine!!

  2. I’m glad I saw the edited version, now I’m less concerned.

    Although that in itself should be cause for concern…

  4. You made me laugh out loud. Which unfortunately meant the eternally cranky woman from the office next door came over to see what I’m laughing about … she just would not understand.
