If you’re not reading the Abstinence Clearinghouse’s website, then you’re really missing out. Here’s a typical deep thought post:

It’s amazing to me that “no” happens to be one of the first words in a child’s vocabulary. Yet, when they get to be older, the word simply goes out of their head when it comes to their sexual integrity and, just as important, their sexual health.

I say no to abstinence. This must cause HotMama the sort of mind-blowing pain that causes you to just get up and change the music in hopes everyone forgets before you return to your beanbag chair, man.

One simple word can separate them years of physical pain and other effects of STD’s as well as unwanted pregnancy.

“Condom”? Usually it takes more than that, like, “They’re in the top drawer.”

I don’t think HotMama at the Abstinence Clearinghouse should waste her preciously few working brain cells coming up with these nuggets. There’s a whole website full of profundities she can cut and paste.

Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis.

Better not take a dog on the space shuttle, because if he sticks his head out when you’re coming home his face might burn up.
