A Simple Thought Expanded…

So I was thinking (Red Alert: Nuisance To Follow), why do we never hear  news stories on how an “Employee of the Month” from McDonalds showed up at a camp filled with over-weight beings holding a tray full of Big Macs to give a lecture on the dangers of obesity…

If there was actually a thing called “common sense” and all humans owned a piece of it, they would probably say this is a dumb idea… I mean, they would probably call it playing dangerous mind games using temptation (with enough stories about temptation in myths to rationalize)… OK! No problem, I can play along with that…

But then would someone please explain to the Simpleton, why he continues to hear stories about Miss Universe visiting areas that have been labeled as “AIDS stricken zones of the world” to  promote safe-sex… The Simpleton’s idea to promote safe-sex would be to send old folks  and  have them share their sex stories…

This thought actually reminds me of an interesting person I had once met on a plane  (between 1997 – 2001, I did more flying than superman)… Once a doctor in Congo, but now part of sales team for a Telecom Company in the US… Why did the doctor become a salesperson?… Well! His story went something like this:

Being part of a group of doctors who had to go into rural areas of Congo to treat and prevent AIDS, he slowly lost interest in the medical profession… I was told, most of these villages were very conservative as far as discussions on sex goes, so to promote safe-sex via use of a condom, they had to use a banana to represent the male sex organ… What followed was a shortage of bananas within the village, and many reports of unpeeled “condom wearing”  bananas in the local trash cans…

To end this nuisance, I would like to thank the bitch next door ( and I’m referring to the female dog here and not the lady who owns her) for barking and inspiring me with this thought… A Bark which I had translated as cry from a dog wondering why dogs and other female animals (not to mention Aliens) are not represented in a pageant called Miss Universe…

Now think about that… On a second thought, Please don’t think about that or if you really want to do me favour, please don’t think when you read my scribblings…
