Yesterday's post

I'm sure many are wondering WTF was yesterday's post about. Well, it was kinda like an episode of "Seinfeld." It was about nothing. The night before I had been putting some I-can't-believe-it's-not-butter on some corn when the phrase "I can't believe it's not smegma!" popped into my head. You should all know by now how random my brain can be at times. I just laughed to myself and thought it would make a funny LJ post. I haven't done a random post like that in some time. I was curious as to what type of responses I would get. Many of my friends sometimes post short random bits that lead to some pretty funny threads.

So what is my fascination with smegma? Well, back when I was in geology field camp, I heard one of the other students call his friend "smegma breath." I went to the dictionary and my response was pretty much like many of you, "Ewww." I found the word, however, extremely funny. I started using it myself. It even became a running joke between my roommate and me. When something was going to take a long time we referred to it as "longer than it would take to make a bowlful of smegma."

On a sidenote, I believe in an episode of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" someone was named Mrs. Smegma. I think it was the skit where you are taught how to remain hidden.
