It's not hard when you have the same thought like 40 or 50 percent of the time.


Jim Carrey and John Travolta can be spokesmen for the campaign: Got Breastmilk?

Anyone else think of Meet the Parents?

Edit: Curses, there was no thread when I made this, and it was half an hour late.

I suppose it's more likely for her to move her legs slightly than to lose them entirely, but I suppose it's open to interpretation.

One would assume it to be a difficult position to assume in an armchair.

THIS IS THE RIGHT THREAD PPLZ

Was the only one to first think of the gay-rights movie? It could be because I had heard it mentioned in another context no more than 30 minutes ago, but ah..

I want this on a t-shirt. (And then I want to be a woman so that I can wear it)

It could be a particularly wide armchair. Also, as a stick figure, she would not require much room to do so.

I hope the t-shirt version includes an extra set of legs.

Not really, in a good lazy boy, it's super comfy and easy to get into (assuming flexibility). Curling up into a comfy chair with a comfy book is awesome. Can't get the same effect with a laptop/smartphone, I'd found. It's sad :( Lucky I have real books to read. Got 1984 and Catch 22 I need to read still, paperback versions ;)

Only glasnt could make a thread 10 minutes later than two others and have it still become the main thread. (Why we don't just use a script to autogenerate the threads is beyond me)

This one felt like it could've used a lot more buildup and thinking behind it. If I want random boob jokes I'll go read QC, thank you very much.

Punchline falls flat for me. Timing's a bit off, and the line itself is weak.

So long as a woman has had one baby, lactation can be induced.

Why would he be thinking of breast milk anyhow? She's build like a stick insect.

40 or 50% of the time? That seems low for Randall.

In other news, there was a country where the careless translation of "Got Milk?" turned out to mean "Are you lactating?" I forget where though and can't be bothered looking it up. (Mainly because I'm not about to Google that phrase :P)

I would assume that this is because of the lack of certain bits that in a male get squished and thus make such a position less comfortable for males.

Assuming this is the right thread, since it has more replies (and newer replies).

True story slightly related. I was living with my brother and sister in law and my young (newborn) nephew for a while. I made myself a cup of coffe and there was milk in the fridge in a small milk jug (like the kind you'd put on a table for afternoon tea). I took a sip of my coffee and it was rather odd tasting. I thought maybe the milk had turned, so I took a swill and it tasted offish, and tipped it out.

Later that day, my brother asked "What happened to that breast milk in the fridge?"
Whoops.
I told him I spilt it. Lies are handy.
