I've been working in this joke - it's awesome. It's a play-on-words type thing.
The punchline is hilarious. But I am having problems getting the joke set up correctly. You see, I need to have a situation where there is a young woman who desperately wants to finish her dental training. But traditions and cultural standards require that advanced training be for men only.
Her hope for a brilliant white career in the dental arts was not crushed, however. She devises a plan whereby she dressed like a slightly older male in order to remain in dental school and have a chance at her dream. She finds love, confusion and thrust into roles as hygenist, receptionist, doctor a counselor, babysitter. The gender-bending charade falls apart when the young Avigor feels up our heroine after a particularly hefty hit of nitrous and finds hills where there should be plains.
It's a tough situation to set up. It is pretty darned hard to pull that off without looking contrived, you know? I'm going to keep working on it as the punchline is totally worth the effort.
I'm not one to go to "mixers", meetings and little gatherings of like-minded folk who discuss nothing but how is fortunate it is that "people like you" are having these little soirees. Self-referential, co-dependent, mutual masturbation.
But I attended my first progressive/liberal political meeting arranged by the good folks at Drinking Liberally. Who?
An informal, inclusive progressive social group. Raise your spirits
while you raise your glass, and share ideas while you share a pitcher.
Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place
to talk politics. You don't need to be a policy expert and this isn't a
book club - just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent
frustration and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk
The meeting was held at the legendary Zeigeist (a place I swore I wouldn't go into until I finally got my motorcycle.) I met several people, sucked down a couple Mt. Tam pints (too hoppy) and was able to vent/discuss/argue politics with smart, knowlegable people. I think I'm going to make it a habit... maybe learn a few things.
