I SHAVED MY BALLS FOR THIS?

That's what was written on the T-shirt of the guy sitting across from my date and I last night. When I started to laugh after seeing the shirt, I got an eye roll so intense from my date, I thought her eyes would get stuck in the back of her head. When I said, "Come on. That's funny," I got a 5 minute lecture on how the shirt was disgusting, and that I was an immature child for laughing at it.

I knew well before her harangue that this would be our first and last date since she sat there most of the time scowling with her arms folded, as if she were on the blind date simply because she lost a bet.

Halfway through her diatribe about my immaturity, I started to wish I had actually done some pre-date landscaping just so I could get up, start to walk out, and say to her, "I SHAVED MY BALLS FOR THIS?"

Gee, Marc, I must be immature, too, because I thought it was funny as well! Your date needs to get a sense of humor!

Well, it was a kind of vulgar humor not every woman would dig. What gets me is that they like to interpret things and generalize in such a way. The shirt is disgusting to her, that means it's not funny, that means you're immature for laughing about it in her presence, that means you're somehow trying to insult her, that means you are a pig, and pigs are not kosher ... that means she can't eat you, that means she'll have to starve to death.

She's dumb and has no sense of humor. I laughed and I didn't even see the shirt.

I so want that t-shirt.

(See, I'm female. Without balls. So it's ironic.)

Tiny- I found it online:

If I ever see someone who clearly doesn't have balls walking down the street wearing the shirt, I'll assume it's you and say hello.

Uber- I think this chick actually does eat pig, but I'll never know for sure since I don't see dinner plans in our future.

I walked by a guy the other day with a T-shirt that said, ,"Proud of my Privates". The shirt was funny. The guy.... well he was funny in the sad way.

Perhaps you should order the t-shirt and wear it on your next date. Just for giggles.
