High School Students Create Ketchup Bottle Cap That Solves the Problem of the First Squirt Being Watery

Anonymous said: Could your followers press you for your top 5 Shakespeare dick jokes?



AH HA HA HA oh I love you.

Okay, well, the raunchiest one is Romeo and Juliet 2.4, Mercutio to the Nurse:

“for the bawdy hand of the dial / Is now upon the prick of noon.”

And the baldest one, Henry V, 2.3, Pistol to Nym:

“I do retort the solus in thy bowels, / For I can take, and Pistol’s cock is up, / And flashing fire will follow.”

Schlockiest, Twelfth Night 1.5, Feste to Maria:

“Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage.” *rimshot*

Cleverest—and hottest—Sonnet 20, the poet to his beautiful young man:

Till Nature, as she wrought thee, fell a-doting,
And by addition me of thee defeated,
By adding one thing to my purpose nothing.
   But since she prick’d thee out for women’s pleasure,
   Mine be thy love and thy love’s use their treasure.

(For me the most important word here isn’t “prick’d”—giggle—but “nothing,” which was Elizabethan slang for vagina. Nature added one thing, a prick, which is to my purpose nothing, a vagina, so


AHEM. Shakespeare gettin’ his frottage on?)

But okay, my #1 all-time favorite Shakespeare dick joke is Hamlet 2.2, Hamlet to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern:

Happy, in that we are not overhappy.
On Fortune’s cap we are not the very button.


Nor the soles of her shoes?


Neither, my lord.


Then you live about her waist, or in the middle of her favors?
Faith, her privates we.


In the secret parts of Fortune? Oh, most true. She is a strumpet.
Because yeah, most poignant.

One of my favorites: “better a witty fool than a foolish wit.” With “wit” as slang for penis, i.e. HOPE HE’S DUMB AND HUNG.

But you can’t beat the blatant comment from Mercutio about Juliet: “Oh, that she were an open arse, and thou a poperin pear!”

I have “Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage” on a show shirt. I had no idea it was a dick joke XD




There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
