Not Tonight, Honey...

"I have a headache and I'm tired and I have to get up early and I'm not in the mood and I'm still upset about that time in 1993 when I asked you if those Capri pants made me look fat and you had to think about it before answering 'no.'  So I am now activating the Wifely Force Field of Solitude — BZZZT! — and you can go sleep on the couch."

Uh, hudey?  Goth my thongue stuckth to the forcth field, here.

Jeez, Tatyana S., what'd I say?

Awww...I have the same bed for my kitty, though he would never be caught dead sleeping on it. *sigh*

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 07:26 PM

haha, gender stereotype jokes! in the relationships, women, they don't want the sex, but the men, they, haha, they want the sex! yes! these jokes, they are not going stale!

Do these pants make me look fat?
Do these pants make me look fat?

Haha! Ah, jesus.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 07:52 PM

haha, highly sarcastic posts! people, they take things far too seriously, haha, they make posts on cuteoverload! yes, these posts, they are not going stale!

Does this post make me look petty?
Does this post make me look petty?

Haha! Ah, xenu.

He-Pug looks like he has very baaaaaad things on his mind.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:05 PM

My goodness, the nuffers have gotten sophisticated on us- things are turning mean and the vibe is getting distressing. What could account for all this hostility...this madness??

*pins back to the wall*

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:08 PM

So it's one of those ice-cold triple-dog-dare-you force fields, then.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:08 PM

(except... where's the third dog?)

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:08 PM

Nina -- I think you mean comments...? Meg and Mike, they make posts. (and sometimes me)

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:09 PM

Love the 90-degree tongue curl! Is that a dominant or recessive gene trait?

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:12 PM

haha, i just got my electronic @ss HANDED to me! in the future i'll know better than to mock jokes that i think are just lame stereotype recycling, because -- BECAUSE WORMS TURN MY FRIENDS! Haha, can I get a towel to wipe all this egg off my face, or should i just wait for the embarrassment to BURN IT ALL OFF???

[...your ass is electronic?? What do you do in the shower? - Ed.]

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:20 PM

@lsncee: I thought your comment was funny. Thanks for the laugh!

(But I think the post is funny, too.)

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:23 PM

Oh my god. *pinches bridge of nose* Can we get some nuffer-filters in here so that people can stop freaking out all over the comments? Dear lord.

I thought the post was funny. I really doubt that NTMTOM was trying to make some kind of sexist statement. Jeeeza.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:24 PM

Theo, yes, I meant comments. I'm sorry, I usually post on forums, where the term is usually "post".

I guess that little mistake kind of took the wind out of my sails, didn't it? Bah.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:47 PM

@Isncee: Actually, I was just trying to come up with some entertainingly bizarre explanation as to why that dog's tongue looked like it was stuck to an invisible wall. This was the angle that came to me first, so I rolled with it.

It's possible -- just possible, given Tom's history of posts -- that the "sexist" dialogue is meant to be satirical. It's kind of like the way Stephen Colbert represents conservative outrage - in a slightly nuanced, exaggerated performance, the "meaning" and intentions of the words are undermined for comic effect.

The hovertext, in this case, seems to support this hypothesis.

Nice job, Tom. You chauvinist piggeh.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:55 PM

Chubby dog with lolling tongue on hot day: "Do these pants make me look fat?" (Notice lack of gender stereotyping.)

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 08:59 PM

NomTom don't ever feel like you have to explain your posts. And certainly not to sarcastic wiseacres.

Nina, your *post* was hilarious. (I knew what you meant...I visit a lot of forums, too.)

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:07 PM

AND he left the toilet seat up!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:08 PM

hahahaha! adorable and even moreso with the capshon! <3

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:17 PM

And he leaves all his whisker shavings on the bathroom sink!!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:18 PM

Is anyone else noticing the awesomeness of the phrase "Wifely Force Field of Solitude" (is that anything like the Fortress of Solitude)???

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:38 PM

Tom, you mean you are not Mike? Don't confuse me, its too easy!

Love the caption and especially wifey's "don't you dare think about joining me on MY bed" eyeball warning.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:40 PM

and another thing, is "Not that Mike the other Mike" a line from "American President' starring Michael Douglas?

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:45 PM

@becca: Thank you. I think the WFFoS may be related to the famous Reality Distortion Field. :-)


Not That Mike The Other Mike
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:48 PM

@ffleur: I like that movie and I'm familiar with the scene you're describing, but the name they use isn't "Mike." I think it's "Clark."

Not That Mike The Other Mike
 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 09:51 PM

@Not Mike aka Tom: good grief, you know your movies. I just checked the screen play and damn! You are right.



Not that Clark, the one from Indiana.


Damn, I hate being wrong.

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 10:07 PM

Pugs have the greatest expressions. The eyes say so much.

Cute pups!

 |  Oct 01, 2008 at 10:35 PM


 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 12:14 AM

Oh Honey I love it when you get mad, it kinda turns me on, woof woofa howl howl.

Hon Glad
 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 01:29 AM

Yes i love pugs

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 02:09 AM

My girlfriend and I have conversations like that, and we're both women (although not NeoCon).

We don't leave the toilet seat up, though.

Hey, somebody unstick that pug's tongue!

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 02:12 AM

pug in capri pants!!!

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 04:37 AM

I LOVE the mere idea of a pug in Capri pants.

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 06:15 AM

How about diCaprio in pug pants?

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 06:21 AM

hahaha this is my home life - exactly - my husband is wearing a dip in the couch from sleeping there so much, just the other day I was saying that we just needed to build a husband sized dog-house for him. :D

I love it.

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 06:22 AM

"Stuck to an invisible wall" - that's just what I thought too. Then I thought, forgive me, that if my guy had a tongue like that, I probably wouldn't turn him down.

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 06:51 AM

Erebella, you don't know where that tongue has been!?!?

Pugtastic post!

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 07:46 AM

Long, long ago, on a post far, far away...

There was a commenter named Mike.

But then...an EVIL Mike nuffer came and his comments were MEAN and NASTY.

So Mike changed his name to Not That Mike the Other Mike.

And that is the legend of NTMTOM.

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 08:01 AM

OriginalMel, would you tell me the NOMTOM bedtime story again? But this time with shadow puppets?

Cuz that would be awesome!

Capt' Tightpants
 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 08:36 AM

Wifey Force Field of Solitude is hilarious and so is the triple-dog-dare-freezy joke!!

You know what "NTMTOM" makes me think nom Tom in my haid.

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 08:55 AM

see capt. tightpants also thinks "nom Tom"!

nom nom nom

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 08:56 AM

Well Capt' Tightpants, only if we are very good, and we smoke some Humboldt County first. Then we can watch Toonces the Sewing Cat make our shadow puppets for us. And then I'll tell you the story again.

Men and women are different in more than the physical sense. We are not just "parts is parts". Just because we are different does not mean to imply one is "less" than the other. Our differences are wondrous and exciting.....and very funny! If we were the same except physically...the species would have died out years ago.....from BOREDOM.

Enjoy, celebrate the differences....and the pugs in capri pants. :)

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 09:38 AM

You might lean in close and say something sexy like, "I think I'll go to bed, I've got work in the morning." It's business time!

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 09:59 AM

I'm more concerned about the fact that the little pug looks much too much smaller/younger than the big pug to be his "wife". Unless it's a trophy wife, I guess. Looks more to me like, "You are grounded for life, young lady! You will not be allowed to date until you're 30!" and the puglet, "Awww Dad, it was just some capris and a tube top, it wasn't that revealing, really all the girls wear them. Don't be so old fashioned!" Something like that.

Mary (the first)
 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 10:05 AM

It's weird. I love this picture.

But if you look at it in a certain way, it looks like the larger pug is stuffed and has just been scooted into frame. The little one is kind of like "holy crap is this one of those rhesus monkey experiments, or like a Trojan horse filled with kitties?"

 |  Oct 02, 2008 at 11:36 AM

Mary (the 1st), I totally agree with you. I think it looks like the bigger pup is scolding the little one - like sending him to bed without dinner. And look at that tiny face! He's trying to look all innocent, but that puppy knows he's in big trouble!!!
