Just be glad this post doesn’t have a picture.

Working at a public policy school—where most of the students are studying environmental or social policy issues—is a daily testament to the social divide between domestic and security policy communities.

Now, dear readers, you know I like an obscene joke as much as anyone (Hey Baker!), but can you imagine sending this e-mail to your colleagues at work?

Hey, ya’ll!!!!

So got a few things for my fellow wonks……

1) Halloween Party – My roommates and I are hosting a Halloween Party on Saturday October 29th, starting at 9pm or so. The address is [REDACTED]. Please feel free to stop on by……there will be a bunch of policy people, and toher degenerates there. Even if I have never met you, you are still invited. For those of you metro-bound, the nearest stop is the Howard-Shaw metro stop. Hope to see you there!

2) Jezebel Passion Parties – As some of you know, I do sex toy parties to help supplement my income during grad school. Essentially, they run like Tupperware Parties, but with more interesting products. I don’t necessarily want to promote this too much, but I am always looking to set up parties for girls/boys nights, bachelor/ette parties, etc. The parties are free, and if you host one, you get 10% in free products of whatever I sell. If you are interested in hosting one ro know fo people who may be interested, please feel free to send me an email.

Thanks!

Call me crazy, but I just can’t imagine Jay Sigger rolling into the Pentagon and asking some Four Star if he and his wife would like to host a Passion Party in exchange for ten percent of whatever he sells in free product.

Anyway, sorry for the off-topic post.

Tomorrow, I’ll be back to wonkery and leave the sex toy commentary to Wonkette … who, BTW, has impeccable taste in watering holes—she happened to be sitting next to MKH the other night when Olivier and I met up with him for a drink at my favorite bar.

    Dang – maybe I should have taken you up on that introduction to Steinbrunner to set me up with a PhD at UMd.

    Isn’t that how A.Q. Khan got in trouble? Selling naughty items at informal get-togethers? Can’t you just see him and the North Koreans, smirking, giggling and blushing, picking out primary designs….

    Since I’ve never been one to pass up an easy opportunity…

    Theres an entire comedy sketch in the “penetration being a function of length, not speed” with regards to the RNEP…

    Oh good god no. Not even in jest. Not even to the free-wheeling field grades there.
