The Stigma Of Community Service

I dunno.

When I was younger community service didn't mean what it seems to mean in today's world. It once seemed like a noble and good thing to do. But now, not so much, at least in one degree.

(Just a disclaimer of sorts, serving your community is a good thing.)

Now when I hear of, or see someone performing community service, I wonder what illegal activities occurred for them to be performing community service. What heinous crime did this person commit to get sentenced to community service? Is this the first time? Is this dude who's helping me find a book at the library serving part of his sentence doing community service for armed robbery? Is he now eying my ass because it's cute, or just scoping out the bulge......

my wallet is creating in my pants?

(I know at least one of you wondered what bulge I was talking about for a second there. It's okay, I welcome perverts here as well. Ah shit, that'll be a word for the search engines, won't it?)

Anyway, that's my random thought for the day. Aren't you glad I shared it with you?

Wait....

Do you have time for another random thought?

Good news for Catholics in a small church in Wisconsin. Their Priest stands accused of simply stealing church funds. Much better crime, and more socially acceptable, than sexually abusing little boys in my opinion.

Always a silver lining folks.

And as alluded to in the last post I expect to be offline fairly early today. I know, I know, I'll be as sorely missed as a fat kid at a birthday party who samples the frosting on the cake several times, and licks his fingers between sampling.

No easy community service for our lowly criminals...they pick up trash!

Hmmm...there is no better way to start my day than to read about your bulge....

Are we getting a little peek at your smart-assed side? I hope there's more to come :)

the search engines love phrases like 'with daddy in the park' - had a pic labeled that because well, it was my daughter.... in the park.... with her daddy pushing her on a swing. Fully clothed, nothing suspect. God, had over seventy people down load that pic. I wonder if some places just search for pics and download instantly and then go though them.

And I agree - stealing money so much better than fiddling with the choir boys.

Gail -- I'm sure they do that here too. :)

ChiTown Girl -- I think I possess a bit of a smart-ass gene. It'll probably appear in here occasionally. ;)

gaijinwife -- Amazing the number of weirdo's with a computer and what they look for, huh?

Haha I think the same thing about people doing community service.

We miss you already! =D

I think we should bring back the public stocks and pillory in the town square. That would be a much better deterrent than picking up trash or working at the animal shelter. Save those jobs for the homeless or destitute and pay them in food.

Is it a sign of how lame I am that when you said "bulge" the first thing I thought of was your wallet? Where has my sense of vulgarity gone?!

I had a good laugh at the creepy librarian thought. Used to work in one, and yes, you have to be somewhat warped to work there, what with the no talking or laughing rule. Kind of like church. Hmmm. Similar creepy people factor?

KLZ said...

I know this will fall on deaf ears, because that's how it goes, but you probably want to stop checking what keywords people used to find you.

Because you'll like humanity a lot less after seeing some of the things they're searching for.

You don't just get to tell us you have a cute ass ... this post is useless without pictures!

WhisperingWriter said...

You're going to get some strange people searching for strange things on your blog now. I mean, bulge, community service, Catholics...;)

SY said...

Very random indeed.. and yes I was one of the perverted people... Very disturbing indeed

You're right, stealing money is so much more acceptable than sex crimes. At least that priest has some moral backbone!

I used to do community service when I was in high school, but now I just don't have time (which I know sounds horrible!), plus, I really don't want to spend my time with petty criminals!

Charlene said...

My mind did not go to your pants when you said bulge. I was thinking that the guy was eying your pants looking for a stolen book!

As to Priests taking money, heck all pastors, brothers, etc. seem to eithe rhave their hands in the kitty or ... opps. I mean their steal money.

There's a guy here running for state Senate whose commercials talk about him being a pastor. I figure that's not an endorsement of honesty at all.

This is the internet. Anything you write about will appeal to some pervert somewhere. Pudding. Stinky shoes. Mannequins. Any mundane object can and will be fetishized. So you may as well just write whatever you want. :-)

Sarahf said...

Managing to combine armed robbery, dodgy bulges, and Catholicism in one post surely earns you sme kind of, slightly odd, award? Awesome.

Just Plain Tired said...

Just gotta say thanks for the comments folks. Much appreciated.
