Note: Let’s see if name changes make a difference. I fear not.
This episode takes place at the International Symposium for Secular, Atheist, Skeptic, Humanist, Freethinker, Non-Believer, Agnostic, Vegan Rational, 3rd Wave Skeptifem Peace, on a ship in international waters, incorporated in Delaware, chartered in Liberia and floating off the coast of Switzerland for the sake of neutrality.
Our gracious host is L Moore.
L Moore : Guests, please be seated. Dinner is about to be served. You’ll find chairs have been placed at the 10 seat tables tops with only 6 chairs at them to allow for private personal space so no one accidentally or coquettishly bumps elbows.
Warning folks, the chef has violated our trigger warning policy and the menu for this evenings meal may have some suggestive or abusive language like ‘bathed, sauteed, sliced, breast, etc., Please be seated.
Karlie Porterlie: Maybe they better hand pass Xanax laced appetizers before people read them..
Vacula: I couldn’t believe out on the ship deck how the chairs kept being moved around. I was sitting in one, got up to get a drink, came back and it was moved.
OB: You’re just an MRA chair punisher.
Vacula: LOL what are you talking about? Then I get in the dining room and see we could have made a lot more money on the tickets for Peace Symposium if the right number of people were seated at the tables. This isn’t rational, who made this decision?
EB: Since we have had problems with men moving chairs to close together in the past we have implemented a comprehensive 10 page Chair Policy. Anyone who violates them will have an incident report made and have to walk the plank if found guilty. What’s wrong with a chair policy?
Vacula: That’s not very egalitarian EB. Whose to say a woman couldn’t be responsible for moving a chair?
OB: It’s MRA types like you who always want to downplay privilege.
Vacula: I’m really glad you are here so we can sit down like two humans and try to resolve our differences through civil discourse.
Karlie Porterlie: Yeah, that would be really cool of you to do.
OB: Shut up you sister traitor or I’ll come on your Facebook page and pull a Mahew. And you Vacula, you’re nothing but a vitriolic misogynist.
Vacula: I love it, now OB is roasting me! You and your friends have done more promotion for my blog than I could have ever paid some SEO guru to do for me. You know, we make a great tag team, OB, would you be my agent?
Stay tuned for another episode of ATAWT whenever comedy lends itself and the mood strikes ~ Karlie Porterlie XXOO
