Be the ____ you want to see in the world.

Frani’s roommate likes to leave inspirational messages on the fridge. (Apparently what she’s inspired was another roomie’s less-than-dazzling wit.)

If I take time out of my day to put an inspirational quote up here for you guys, I expect you to not write penis on it. kthanks.

    I say we try to put our own modified inspirational quotes below. I’ll start.

    Start by sucking what’s necessary; then mouth what’s possible; and suddenly you are deep throating the impossible.

      Bring me penis, or bring me death!

      Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much a penis can hold.

      A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its penises.

      Penis doesn’t make the world go ’round; penis is what makes the ride worthwhile.

    Dear Frani’s Roommate,

    No one except 90 year old women who smell like Icy Hot and original flavor Listerine and pretentious young people who really need a smack in the mouth like inspirational quotes. Your roommates would much rather have different penises posted every day. Thank you.

      Also 70 years of being told to watch what you say around first your children then grandkids even greatgrandkids. Could just be that no matter how old you are they just can’t believe you’re old enough to handle a dirty joke. After all when you’re pushing 90 everyone under 70 is still pretty much a baby, and you wouldn’t tell a penises joke to a baby.

    Extremely juvenile humor warning: This reminds me of a game I used to play with cheesy love songs of the 80′s and 90′s… depending on the context, replace “love” with the most apropos off-color slang for sex or naughty bits.

      I am Your Disease

      I hate meetings.
      I hate your higher power.
      I hate anyone who has a program.

      To all who come in contact with me,
      I wish you suffering and death.

      Allow me to introduce myself…
      I am the disease of addiction.

      Alcoholism, drugs and eating disorders.
      I am cunning, baffling and powerful. Thats me!

      I’ve killed millions and enjoyed doing it.
      I love to catch you by surprise.
      I love pretending I’m your friend and lover.
      I’ve given you comfort.
      Wasn’t I there when you were lonely?

      When you wanted to die, didn’t you call on me?

      I love to make you hurt.
      I love to make you cry. Better yet…
      I love it when I make you so numb,
      You can’t hurt and you can’t cry.
      You feel nothing at all.

      I give you instant gratification.
      All I ask for in return is long term suffering.
      I’ve always been there for you.

      When things were going right, you invited me back.
      You said you didn’t deserve to be happy.
      I agreed with you.
      Together we were able to destroy your life.

      People don’t take me seriously.
      They take strokes seriously.
      They take heart attacks seriously.
      Even diabetes, they take seriously.
      Yet, without my help, these things wouldn’t be possible.

      I’m such a hated disease, yet I don’t come uninvited.
      You choose to have me.
      Many have chosen me, instead of love and peace.

      I hate all of you who work a 12step program.
      Your program, your meetings, and your higher power weaken me.
      I can’t function in the manner I am accustomed to.

      I am your disease.
      For now I must lie here quietly.
      You don’t see me, but I’m growing more powerful everyday.

      When you settle for mere existence, I thrive.
      When you feel fully alive, I weaken.
      But I’m always here waiting for you.

      Until we meet again,
      I wish you continued suffering and death.

    The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the penis.

    I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my penis to always reach my destination.

    If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a penis.

    Put your heart, mind, and penis into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.

    It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the penis.

      Penises in all honesty aren’t the most exciting thing in the world for me. I don’t get the obsession. They’re necessary for various functions like urinating, but – they’re nothing to write home about.

      And for the record I’m not that thrilled about butts, boobs, or vulvas/vaginas either.

      I’m either turning into an old prude or I’m finally coming to terms with being grey-ace and tired of pretending to be otherwise.

      Perhaps if I had gone with my gut and used ‘pants’ in lieu of ‘harbor’, more people would have gotten it.
      But to your point, if I had a bush to put it in, I wouldn’t need a hand, now, would I?;-)
