That’s… beautiful.

The weight of possible interpretations is so tremendous it is practically bending spacetime.

At the moment I’m thinking that it’s a stern warning : If you are going to have sex with a stuffed toy pig then you are NOT to use a condom.

Safety is NOT an option. IT’S SANCTIONED.

She really should have a shoulder belt, too.

Should have been “not an OPTION”, right?

Seen in Madison recently:


This one seems to me to send mixed messages.

In a world where safety is not an option, there can be no recourse to the tyranny of the majority.

If you are going to have sex with a stuffed toy pig then you are NOT to use a condom.

It’s the Astroglide-lubed slippery slope of gay marriage – first adorable couples at City Hall, next man-on-dog sex, then men marrying box turtles, followed by men marrying horses*, and eventually unprotected sex with stuffed toy pigs, until, panting and exhausted, we reach the climatic end stage of dogs and cats living together!

*It’s uncertain whether the box turtles get divorced or if we’re talking about some kind of multi-species polygamy here.

I remember that the game Command&Conquer had “Surrender is not an option” written on the box, although in-game you could go to the menu, pick “Stop current game” and then pick “Surrender game”.

There was also an “Options” menu, and Surrender was indeed in a different menu.

Oh, the difference between “optional” and “an option.”
