Re: Ask Inner Corner


Hey Inner, this is your corner...

Who's the first one who looked at a gerbil and thought, "**** it, let's give it a whirl"?

I question whether anyone has actually done it...kinda like the chemical in pools that changes colour when you pee...or people putting razor blades in kids candy apples. Everyone talks about it...but I'm thinking it's never actually been done.

Now a light bulb I believe...could happen if your ass has a brilliant idea.

I think in a world where people are eating Tide pods or "dating" goats and sheep....anything is possible.

It has been done, and not surprisingly the person I knew who did it died of aids in the 80s. I was a friend of his brother and he used to tell us of all his doings in Greenwich Village.

How many people do you know personally who have actually eaten a tied pod or dated a goat?

Re: Ask Inner Corner


At first, I thought that that story about the pod eating was apocryphal also, then I saw videos of idiots actually doing it. Hopefully, these morons will be selecting themselves out of the gene pool.

The real question I have is, why do my thumbs smell so badly now?

Guess you're ambidextrous.

Re: Ask Inner Corner


The guy that I knew who did it was in his early 20s, he was gay since middle school. Everyone knew it and he did not care about it.

We thought he had a screw loose and some of the stuff he told us was unheard of. Let's just say they practiced with whiffle ball bats in a way most would not.

“Now I got the gun, you got the brew
You got two choices of what you can do
It's not a tough decision as you can see
I can blow you away or you can ride with me"
I said, I'll ride with you if can get me to the border
The sheriff's after me for what I did to his daughter
I did it like this, I did it like that
I did it with a whiffleball bat
So I'm on the run, the cop's got my gun
And right about now it's time to have some fun
The King Adrock that is my name
And I know the fly spot where they got the champagne."”

If it is hidden, I have a good idea as to where to look for it.

Lol Robie I got lots of answers about lots of things.... But when it comes to eating soap, climbing mountains or shoving gerbils up my ass I'm a little out of my element.
