The Online Schmekel*

Smile For the Camera

twitter

Does our collective heart go out to soon-to-be former Navy War College professor John Schindler whose penis was apparently tweeted, so to speak?

Perhaps not.

The tweet was of a text message which  included a different sort of  member ID.

Included in the press coverage is an email purportedly written by Mr. Schindler.

He is a former NSA analyst who is divorced, re-married, right wing, religious and who knows a “vixen” when he sees one.

Busy guy.

The Pose

It seems there are only two basic schmekel poses: the easy one and the hard one.

Mr. Schindler says his is the easy one but he might be “pulling our leg”, or his.

If you wish to judge for yourself, the link is at the end of this story.

Aren’t schmekel shots curious?

First, there’s the taking of the photo in the first place.

The whole idea must be to share it as it’s pretty familiar geography for the owner and it’s not exactly frame-worthy.

But, let’s be honest, most people don’t want or need to see a pic of your schmekel.

And, you wouldn’t want most people to see such a picture.

Which means you must be sending it to someone you don’t know at all or barely.

What a first impression.

This is not the old snail mail polaroid snap shot either.

This is digital and a click and a drag away from world fame.

“Honey, is that you?”

Proof of Schmekel

Is the digital schmekel meant to “wow” the recipient?

If so, perhaps it’s best to include a note, “not to scale.”

I suppose that it’s fine to be schmekel proud, but still, you could be selling yourself short, in more ways than one.

As they say, schmekels come and schmekels go.

Schmekel talk has a proud history.

Word emerged recently that U.S. President Warren Harding, in an earlier and gentler time, wrote about his schmekel to his mistress naming it “Jerry.”

Perhaps in our digital tell all/show all world the schmekel shot, easy or hard, is here to stay.

One thing is for sure, if Mr. Schindler wrote the email accompanying the photo, his biggest schmekel is right between his ears.

    This is almost beyond belief…except that I’ve inadvertently come across stuff just as weird while surfing. Does this say something about what’s happened to our society??!! It’s sickening in a way, but on the other hand I’m still laughing.

Eric: Good history lesson. For some reason I thought you were getting ready to get into the Texas City explosions. I think I saw that anniversary is upon us as well. Thanks for your kind work about Glenn. I have repeated them often as the most fitting obituarial words I ever have heard, i.e. "he…

When you were around Chief Gaines for any length of time you realized that notwithstanding his long and distinguished career in the active fire service, that just because he retired didn't mean he was no longer engaged learning and sharing on many different subjects and issues of the fire service! Oh no...if anything he "dove…

Thanks for your big-picture perspective, Eric. I think that when we most need to keep our wits about us and keep in mind a larger context is when we are least likely to do so. Maybe this is why we're all told to count to 10 before responding when we're upset.

I had never met Chief Gaines until just last month at the National Fire Academy, but having heard much about him in previous classes, it was nice to hear him in person. What strikes you almost immediately is a sense of pride he had, mixed with a passion for the fire service that instills that…
