Oh, Dear


They didn't think I would post this picture. Clearly, they were wrong.

Now, I could tell you the backstory of this particular picture. But I'd so much rather hear your theories.

I figure it's an alternative form of wine tasting.

Soni | May 26, 2006 02:44 AM

So, I see the new "ying yang" logo for the LGBT conn party is up. Hotchacha!

Here we see two podpeople passing information utilising their high-speed bio-neuron connection.

Euan H. | May 26, 2006 06:11 AM

See kids? This is why implanting magnets in your tongue is a bad idea!

John O'Neill | May 26, 2006 06:20 AM

Ah, the mirror-universe interface is working again, I see. And finally, photographic evidence!

marrije | May 26, 2006 06:36 AM

I think the photo credit explains it all. Who's the handsome gentleman in the white shirt?

Gabe | May 26, 2006 08:06 AM

Oh this is too easy.

Obviously it was a "Most Creative Way to Share the Last Tic Tac" game.

I assume you guys won.

Jim Winter | May 26, 2006 08:26 AM

Wonder Twin powers... ACTIVATE!!!

Wan Zafran | May 26, 2006 08:31 AM

I have no theories concerning the photo - but thank you for corrupting my soul, John.

John H | May 26, 2006 08:46 AM

Auditions for a KISS tribute band - you both forgot your makeup, though...

Man, a big tumbler of vodka will inspire all sorts of behaviour.

Andrew Wheeler | May 26, 2006 09:18 AM

It's very simple: that's Isaac Hayes, and simply no one can resist him.

"See, this is how we catch snowflakes on our tongue in Ohio. No, no, the tip of your tongue needs to stick out a little further..."

alkali | May 26, 2006 09:28 AM

Look, I heard you the first time when you said you didn't want to run for Congress.

Saundra | May 26, 2006 09:38 AM

"And if someone wants to write slash fiction about OMW, this is how *I'd* start..."

Jim | May 26, 2006 09:54 AM

You should post a no-coffee-drinking warning ahead of such pictures. I damn near sprayed coffee on my keyboard. ROFLMAO.

Kero aka Kevin | May 26, 2006 10:01 AM

Too much Scumble.

Tor | May 26, 2006 10:30 AM

Clearly, you guys are playing hacky-tongue with something small, white and round... Either that, or you are just about to lose a "how close can I put my tongue to yours without touching" contest...

Ijon | May 26, 2006 10:37 AM

"First, they both licked twelve-volt batteries..."

K. Brown | May 26, 2006 10:55 AM

First party: Wanna make out?

Second party: Yeah, whatever.

Dave Pittman | May 26, 2006 11:10 AM

The combat faces of two fierce warriors engaging in an impressive sword fight (not shown).

Dewey | May 26, 2006 11:11 AM

Looks like these two poor souls lost the bet.

Or did they?

alex | May 26, 2006 11:26 AM

After getting the news about the cat-fucking, parrot-diddling, and who knows what else, you honestly expect me to even raise my eyebrows at some interracial same-sex tongue-twiddling?

RooK | May 26, 2006 12:13 PM

And I did it MYYYYYYYY way!

Don | May 26, 2006 12:54 PM

I assumed it was a garlic breath-a-thon competition.

Brian | May 26, 2006 01:59 PM

You spent time in prison at some point in your life?

Justine Larbalestier | May 26, 2006 02:06 PM

Marrije: The incredibly handsome man in the white shirt is Doselle Young one of the coolest, funniest, most enablingest men in the universe. He also gives great comics. It's an honour just to know him. But Scalzi, as you can all see, is even more honoured!

Mary | May 26, 2006 05:36 PM

I say it's a "Mine's bigger than yours" contest. Isn't that typical bar behavior when men gather with drink?

Jaye | May 26, 2006 07:33 PM

The Brokeback Ghost Brigades

Jeff Porten | May 26, 2006 07:39 PM

It's not the size of the tongue, it's the dexterity.

Mdean | May 26, 2006 07:52 PM

John, didnt know you where a Downlow Brotha.

Adam Rakunas | May 26, 2006 08:06 PM

"See? That exchanging info with tongues thing from Aeon Flux is *totally* doable.

Smurf | May 26, 2006 08:57 PM

You could take the soul-kissing out of that pic, and I'd still laugh at the Huge Black Guy At A Sci-Fi Convention aspect of the photo.

RK Jones | May 26, 2006 09:42 PM

Two words.....gay chicken.


Harvey | May 27, 2006 12:33 AM

HEy.hey.hey I said NO Tongue....

Jon | May 27, 2006 12:39 AM

Is that Bob Sapp?

Google him, you'll laugh.

"No, no -- you're a HUMMINGBIRD sipping NECTAR. Dammit, work with me already."

Steve | May 27, 2006 05:00 AM

You're exchange long protein strand information. You know, you can do that just by holding hands...

Steve | May 27, 2006 05:01 AM

We're exchanging long protein strand information. If you can think of a better way, I'd like to hear it!

John O'Neill | May 27, 2006 09:55 AM

I'm shocked that I never even thought of The Simpsons when I saw this picture, and went with Star Trek instead. What the hell is wrong with me...?

Harvey | May 27, 2006 10:31 AM

Simon Says: Say Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh.

Look mon NO GUTS!
