the clitter... ok that's worse.

I actually think a lot of female baseball fans would prefer yours, John.

Because then their boyfriends would possibly be inspired to actually find it.

Maybe.




OK, probably not.

How do you miss the clitoris? It's not like it hides itself until you've completed three dangerous tasks.

The three dangerous tasks that work best are dinner, dancing and a movie.

Or you could go for one incredibly easy task and just spike her drink at dinner. Although I don't know if the clitoris will reveal itself if she doesn't know she's aroused.

how about the "taint," as in, t'ain't one and t'ain't th'other.
   7. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: August 23, 2007 at 06:09 AM (#2496337)
This is a near Wok-level affront to decency and goodness

Oh c'mon, nothing I ever say will be ever as indecent and sad as tonight's game.

how about the "taint," as in, t'ain't one and t'ain't th'other.

I'm OK with that.
   8. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: August 23, 2007 at 06:13 AM (#2496339)
if it's a strikeout pitch, we could name it after wok: "the kok"

man, i could do this all day. (that's what she said!)

ok, i'll stop now. (that's what she said!)
   9. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: August 23, 2007 at 08:56 AM (#2496357)
If you want to name a pitch after me, you call it "the slant" or something.

Methinks the fact they printed "The Slutter" in The Globe article, and it is the combo of those two pitches probably won't damage too many children.Besides if Sox fans were held to a strict code of decency and goodness I probably wouldn't see as many "Jeter Blows, Giambi Swallows, and Matsui *******"T-shirts when I go to Fenway.And we all know once the BBTF creator Saint Reverend Jim F. sees this horrid word it shall be censored for the good of America's children,and their children.
Huzzah <_<

If you're gonna name one after Wok, wait a few years 'til he's lost a few inches off his fastball.
   12. IronChef Chris Wok Posted: August 23, 2007 at 12:03 PM (#2496372)
The CVORT (comedic value over replacement thread) is through the roof right now.

Somebody get Brattain up in this joint.

The article doesn't say anything about how this supposedly new pitch is thrown, and Papelbon had "at least one teammate rolling his eyes." If it's a cut fastball grip and a slider release, well, Andy Pettitte's been doing that his whole career. Papelbon has a refreshingly quirky sense of humor, not a patent on a new pitch.

This thread has gone far worse than I thought it would.
   15. Francoeur Sans Gages (AlouGoodbye) Posted: August 24, 2007 at 01:59 AM (#2497626)
Matt Morris also throws a slutter. And I've heard it described as such on several TV broadcasts.
   16. Gonfalon Bubble Posted: August 24, 2007 at 02:05 AM (#2497649)
Call it "the Pap smear."

I find that hard to believe.

It could have been worse. Someone could have suggested "the Papelboner".

Pap should call it a gyroball just to piss off Will Carroll.

the teabag? especially if it's all up in your face.

Where did you think it would go?? The intro had me in stitches, and I am sure you didn't even mean to be funny.

The slutter should be renamed "Paris Hilton". That's mostly clean, but has the same effect.
   23. Justin T., Director of Somethin Posted: August 25, 2007 at 02:52 AM (#2499081)
I think "Pap smear" is by far the best alternative. If Jonathan Papelbon were a professional wrestler, his finishing move would absolutely be called the "Pap smear".

Um, I thought anything with Papelbon and that medical procedure had been long banned by Therapy. I of course had tried this about a billion years ago, which led to the banning.

No, it would be called the Papelbomb. You seriously overrate the creativity of wrestling writers.
   26. Darren Posted: August 25, 2007 at 04:28 AM (#2499168)
Yes, Wok is correct--the medical stuff is no good. Glider. Collider. Spider. Something like that.

Well, there's Rick Rude's "Rude Awakening" and Norman Smiley's "Norman Conquest."

Who was the guy in the 70's who named his hybrid pitch "The Thang"? That could be brought back for Papelbon, and be suffciently G-rated.
   29. Darren Posted: August 25, 2007 at 03:58 PM (#2499323)
How about he calls it "a pitch that's not really all that new, apparently?" Or he just sticks with the pitches that have allowed him to K 68 in 45 IP this year?
