  1. The second one has been on Texts From Last Night for months. Step your game up, Lamebook!

  2. Emma’s brother must be a massive pussy to scream at that. No shit, I was listening to my shower radio the other day and the local classical music station decided to do a film segment on Hitchcock. Now THAT was freaky.

  3. … kamarate, you do realize that Psycho is a Hitchcock film… right?

  4. Yes, Kate, you’re right. They both learned by tinkering into other people’s, and don’t have to deal with expensive maintenance.

  5. Alan fails at trying to be funny.

  6. I’m pretty sure the “Canada” comment was taken from Texts from Last Night.

  7. …And, after reading the comments, I *am* sure of that.

    “A male gynaecologist is like an auto mechanic who has never owned a car but has studied cars for decades and learned from other auto mechanics and made it his life’s work to understand the minutiae of how a car works better than any ordinary car owner ever could.”

    Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

  9. Any GYN who thinks like doctor douchebag over here is full of himself.

  10. No, anne, actually. The doctor’s right.
    Having a fucking vagina doesn’t make you a vagina expert and does not qualify you to examine and diagnose potential problems.

    I like his car analogy. Mostly because my freaking 6-y-o kid knows more about cars than most car owners.

  11. I agree with Kate, my gynae’s always been a (born) female

  12. Eh, I’ve heard the gyno one before. Not even that amusing or clever the first time I heard it.

  13. IMO, male gynecologists are better than female gynos, and it’s exactly because they DON’T have vaginas. They’re more sympathetic, less judgmental, and more careful.

  14. I’ve had both female and male gynos that I’ve liked for various reasons, but I’ll tell you one thing: the female docs are always MUCH gentler sticking that speculum in there. :)

    Yeah, that’s what I was trying to say. Sorry, I just re-read my post and it’s totally not clear. What I meant was that Emma deliberately put it on her brother’s iPod… when the Psycho theme came on when I was in the shower, it was live radio – totally random! And it was a bit weird, but I certainly didn’t scream and leap out of the shower ;-)

  16. This post reminded me of a joke: A gynaecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and HMO paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic. He went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes, attended diligently, and learned all he could.
    When the time of the practical exam approached, the gynaecologist prepared carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor, saying, “I don’t want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?”
    “The instructor said, “During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.” After a pause, the instructor added, “I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through the muffler, which I’ve never seen done in my entire career”.

  17. During my many years spent as a male gynaecologist I only ever rode a bike and never once did I fix an engine.

    I did stick loads of inappropriately shaped stuff up women’s baby chutes though, so not a total waste of time.

    Quick note to all you ladies out there, if you’re using a female fanny doctor you are a Lesbian who likes’ to have other ladies fingers in you… I know because I was a fish box doctor myself so don’t argue with me.

  18. Good cover, Kamarate.

    And since everyone’s giving an opinion, I also disagree with Kate. Having a vagina does not make you an expert. Hell, mine still does the most wonderfully surprising things.

  19. Disturbed There’s nothing better than a cum gutter that has the ability to astonish…Can you make yours sing…or wink…or burp or smoke?…

    I’m still imagining that you have a bushy orange forest around your lower love lips…is this correct or should I picture it bald?

  20. Yes, Mofo it does all those things. Except the burping. Not ladylike, you know.

    And since I like to bring out the inner pedophile in my men, bald is the way I go.

  21. Oh that’s a shame. I was hoping you had a sexy ginger sponge…never mind, I’ll continue with the more accurate hairless vagina imagery… my pubes are dark brown, curly but neatly trimmed and tinged with a slight stench of wrongness by the way.. Just in case you were wondering?

  22. Nope, that’s pretty much exactly what I figured. :D

  23. Wandr,
    MDs miss shit and misdiagnose all the time. And studying the female reproductive system in college may give you a degree but does not make you right all the time. I know my reproductive organs better than any female OB-GYN and I sure as hell know them better than any man. Sure, he may have gotten a visual on more VD than I have, but I understand and care for my body better than he can on his best day.

  24. anne,

    “MDs miss shit and misdiagnose all the time.”

    That’s true, but they are right the vast majority of the time, and certainly far more than amatuers. And you seem to be missing the point (or at least I hope you are…) that their most important duty is diagnosing and treating disease. You may know your body, but they know bacteria, fungi, and viruses much better.

    continuing the car analogy, you are basically saying that just through driving a car for years, you can now find and treat engine problems, despite never having seen what each problem looks like, much learned how to repair them

  25. -should be ‘much less, learned how to repair them’ for the last sentence
