All I can hear right now is Lena watching TV out in the living room. It’s an Oprah episode about people with hard-core OCD. Germ and dirt-phobes. One guy has to go out in the back yard to use the bathroom because he can’t bear to touch a toilet. He obsessively cleans his house to the exclusion of any form of social life or ability to maintain a family.

Man, I wish there was a way to rent people like that.

  1. Man, I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks like this…

    I know, HOW un-PC, but hey, if they’re OCD, then direct those energies so they not only help themselves, but we get clean houses too! With 3 sons, what a challenge they’d have in MY household!

    What a service to sell! OCD House Cleaners, Inc. — the franchise rights alone will make you rich!

  2. He craps in the garden?

    Lovely. Just what you want the kids seeing.

    And I thought *my* neighbours were bad.

  3. Kev…did Enkidu got healed and then whacked all over again just to return him to the boss? Heck, even the blood stain is on the wrong side…

    A most needed reversal is on order?

    Anyways, Oprah!?!?!? I’d take her advice with a drop of sugar (or reasonable facsimile to avoid diabetes). Can’t say I must be wary enough since the slight jab to the Anonymous that caused several retaliations. Or the fact that, like Dr. Phil and some “pastors” (like [former] Cardinal Vorpine), she knows she manipulates her audience to her every whim.

    And actually, if they’re such germ-o-phobes, I would propose inviting said people to your house, take all of your perishable (read: important) stuff away or locked in what would be the “Danger Room”, and tell them “I got to do some work, but there’s an awful lot of germs. Care to help me clean around? I can’t do it all day.”

    So, in a nutshell:
    1) Store all your important stuff
    2) Call OCD/clean junkie
    3) For…erm, CONVINCE your sl…erm, THEM to waste…erm, HELP you clean.
    4) ???
    5) PROFIT!!!

  4. Oscar: The blood is on the wrong side because I drew Enkidu facing the wrong way and flipped him in Photoshop. I was kinda hoping no one would notice so thank you SO much for pointing it out. πŸ˜›

    Um… Lena just came back. I’ll get back to this in a bit.

  5. Dude, it’s fine. I’m just teasing Oscar ‘cuz he was teasing me. It’ll be okay β€” I promise. Go have a beer on me.

    (BTW Oscar, I thought your post was really funny. πŸ˜† Oh, and I did add the black eye because I figured there would have to be some kind of scuffle getting Enkidu tied up!)

  6. You should have just resumed it in these few words, either:

    “No human waste, Sherlock!!!” (for lack of mention of the other word, which begins with the letters “sh” and rhymes with “let”

    or “Thank you for your statement, Captain Obvious!!” πŸ˜‰

    Also, poster above Kev’s last post: go have a beer on us. For an entire week. Finest lager, as well.
