maher slays me...

On the profound stupidity of the family values lot who remain holdouts against HPV vaccinations, that would greatly reduce the number of cervical cancer cases nationwide, because they think it will encourage promiscuity:
It's like being for the salmonella poisoning in peanut butter because it will discourage weirdos from spreading it on their ass and calling the dog!
Now why didn't I think of that? But I digress.

Yes, I watched the same episode and was laughing for several minutes after.

As the mother of now, four, daughters... I have already told my husband that as soon as they turn the eligible age I am taking them to get this shot. He was hesitant at first, methinks his thoughts floated towards the conservative regurgitations he's heard on the subject. But after some soft prodding on my part, he has come to see the light. There is no way in hell any mother who loves her daughter will keep this vaccination from her adolescent to-do list. Frankly, I think it's the perfect opportunity for a mother and daughter to have "that talk" just at the age they start transitioning into adulthood.

actually, there is plenty of support for the promiscuity argument. That said, the Sweet Pea is getting the shot (if for no other reason than it is free for employee's kids).

As Dad said, if you can't be good, be careful.

Four daughters? Too bad spared is against gun ownership--what is dad gonna use to intimidate dates?

Great, now I have this awful visual. You could have left out the dog thing, you pervert.

On happier news, I am an uncle once again. Missed St. Paddy's day by a day, though. And his grandma is the day after. Such irony.
