SparkleDouche Research Project.

Postby Lonesomebri » Wed Sep 18, 2013 8:10 pm

I am interested in researching how readily sexual orientated individuals recognize douches and sparkle ponies compared to excusing them. As a hetro male I feel that a pink furred buxom lass holding a half gallon of cheap vodka and wearing a hat saying “High Maintenance” can be a vital and contributing member to my camp. While others may disagree. To this I can only scratch my head and wonder what some people are thinking. I believe this split in perspective is also evident with douches. A weighing of perceived merits, an ignoring of over-riding evidence. He’s a good guy, his segway douchemobile is green powered, or something like that. All I need is a grant writer and someone to do all the work. I know that if I could pull off wearing pink fur or rock a segway, I could just get someone else to do it for me.

You realize that this will make sense to no one but myself, right? :P

For every sparkle pony that is fluffy, tanned, lean, and glittery in all the right places, there are 100 brave men and women in the background doing paperwork and peeling potatoes to send that sparkle pony to the front lines.

There are two good strategies with properly using sparkleponies to your advantage:

- Take advantage of sparkleponies that everyone else has done the work for.

- Be an even bigger douche/sparklepony that the sparklepony wants to buddy up to and have the "lesser sparkleponies" in your entourage do your work, or have their minions do it.

Okay, my data is coming together. Does anyone know where I can rent a segway douchemobile for the next burn?

In that case, I'll rent you one from UHaul. They always cancel their reservations.

Sadly, Segway of Oakland actually offers this service, including cleaning and pick up in Reno. :(

I wish I were kidding. :cry:

And their pictures feature feather headdress creatures. So sad. :cry:

To sum up: :cry: :cry: :cry:

According to BBadger, I'm being "lame and petty." Why he gives a shit, I have no idea. I suppose he could say the same about me. Funny thing is, I didn't know that one is not allowed to vent on eplaya. I also didn't know that it's not appropriate to respond to the OP with relevant content, even if the both the OP and said "lame and petty" response are typed with a whole lot of tongue in cheeks. My apologies, sir.
