The more Pinky Pervsalot studied the ecology of the travelling freak show, the more her desire to become a funambulist crystallized, the more she realized she was but a flying trapeze artist destined to bang the fire-eating two-headed man.

Furtherance / Rally

Screen Shot 2015-03-24 at 12.09.49 PMAfter a particularly harrowing LSD trip Nigel Diapers decided then and there, lying amongst a heap of cat litter sand castles that he had built and immediately crushed in his drug-fueled stupor, that the drugs were inhibiting him from furtherance. If he wanted to achieve his goal of becoming prime minister of Narnia he would need to rally, pick himself up by the boot straps, sew himself a new fur coat, and stick to doing Molly instead of LSD.

— Cindy Capleton

furtherance [fur-th er-uh ns] noun 1. the act of furthering; promotion; advancement.

 rally (verb) \rah-LEE\  1 a : to bring or come together for a common purpose b : to bring back to order 2 : to rouse from low spirits or weakness 3 : to make a comeback

Brogue / Disposition

Screen Shot 2015-03-17 at 10.52.31 AMASK CINDY

Dear Cindy,

I’ve been dating the love of my life, Carl, for 6 months now and we are completely smitten with each other. Recently though, Carl has taken on the strangest persona — he’s dressing only in green, speaks in a very offensive Irish brogue (even though he’s from San Diego and has an unforgivingly strong Southern California accent), will only order a drink he created called Guinney’s (a bottle of Guinness mixed with an entire bottle of Bailey’s), and has adapted a menacingly playful disposition (he plays practical jokes on strangers and immediately offers to grant them 3 wishes afterward). I love him with all of my heart but his new all-green wardrobe, insane accent, and slapstick attitude are starting to feel strange to me. Should I confront him myself? Stage an intervention? Pretend like this is all normal? Help!”

From, Green with Worry

Dear Green with Worry,

Marry Carl immediately. He is obviously metamorphosing into a leprechaun and will soon have completely control over gold after the completion of his transformation. Do you know what the market value of gold per ounce is these days? Get yours, bitch!

Love, AskCindy

Collywobbles / Pretend

Screen Shot 2015-03-16 at 12.03.51 PMWhile the idea of getting an accidental boner while presenting on fishery ecosystems at the United Nations Climate summit would give most men the collywobbles and cause them to pretend that their dancing peens were nothing but a trick of the pants pleats, Diapers remained unfazed at the thought — he was wearing a XXL diaper anyway, so it’s not like anyone would even see it!

— Cindy Capleton

Momism / Geyser

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 5.54.52 PMAn excerpt from Cindy Capleton’s dissertation for the completion of her doctorate, the topic of which was MILFs — The Cornerstones of Society:

“As demonstrated in the datum below, it has become clear that causation of MILFascination in the Western world (particularly in men of the upper class and upper-middle class) is due largely in part to the physical attachment established between mother and son, the basis of which is what we in the academic world refer to as ‘boob hypnosis,’ or process in which a MILF uses her boobs to hypnotize her son in order to establish control over him throughout his life. While most men are able to shake themselves free of this black magic, my research shows that men in certain socioeconomic systems have been unable to do so. Thanks to the overbearingly dominant mind control (also known as momism) used by MILFs, it is proven that these men have grown into irrevocable sissies who are afraid of anything from a harmless geyser to an innocuous butterfly. Evidence of the first victim of boob hypnosis goes back as early as Sophocles’ Oedipus, and if you would be so kind as to turn to page 69, we can explore this idea further. This chapter is entitled Oedipussy: The Emasculation of Greek Heroes by MILFs and Their Boobs. Again, this chapter starts on page 69.”

–Cindy Capleton

momism [mom-iz-uh m] noun, ( sometimes initial capital letter) 1. excessive adulation of the mother and undue dependence on maternal care or protection, resulting in absence or loss of maturity and independence.

geyser (noun) \GYE-zer\ : a spring that now and then shoots out hot water and steam

we-could-not-talk-foreverShe was young, into new medicines. He was a well-to-do great-grandfather from upstate. She liked to think of herself as bohemian, and he owned the Corporate Conference Convention Corp. She said their first meeting had been brusque (she felt smarter speaking in extra letters); he misremembered it as brusk. She saw his black AmEx card, and if he could see anymore he would have noticed her tattoo, “Sequins,” right above her left ass. She asked if he was into formication, whereupon the user places a bottle of Shaft-flavored Axe Body Spray above the lip and engages it into the empty area formerly occupied by his/her brain, otherwise known as “the Axe Effect,” or getting AE’d; he thought she said the word generally defined as consensual sexual intercourse between two people not married to each other. It was love at first sight.

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 11.18.30 AMHere’s a tip for all you go-getting career-minded youngsters: do a hit of LSD before your next job interview. The formication feeling that you’ll think is real will make you jittery and alert (because a million bugs crawling over your body will make you both those things, it’s a guarantee), making the answers to your interviewer’s questions brusque and to the point. Your tone will not only terrify your potential employer, but will also get you hired out of pity!

— Cindy Capleton, career advisor

formication [fawr-mi-key-shuh n] 1. a tactile hallucination involving the belief that something is crawling on the body or under the skin

brusque (adjective) \BRUSK\ : so short and frank in manner or speech as to be impolite

It was a stark and wormy night, and Meghan had a serious case of the bed bugs. She checked her chonometer: 3:14am. Son of an itch. She knew coming to work at the Center For Web Development was a gamble, but she followed Todd, a spider who once promised her the world (but is now so wrapped up in his net worth that he stopped paying attention to her months ago). “The big city isn’t any place for a lady bug,” Meghan’s mom said. And maybe she was right. Still, there was no way she’d go back home to the hairy arms of her circuis-freak ex, Gary, a lazy Trapeze Moth.

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.52.31 AMChief Warrant Officer Neville Diapers (distant cousin of Nigel Diapers himself, lovable vagrant), stood at the helm of his ship, adjusting the glittering insignia shining on his chest. He stared into the choppy seas, fiddling at his chronometer, a gift he received from his beloved Helmsworth after graduating from the naval academy. Glancing down at the time, he shrieked, and called to his crew: “Increase speed by 69 knots! We’ve got two hours left to get these trapeze strippers to Moby Dick’s bachelor party!”

— Cindy Capleton
