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.

    He must be Irish! Never trust the man behind the curtain

Your post brought a smile of rememberence of the "blaxplotation" movies of ths 70's such as mandingo. The relations and myths are still evident today as you said (so i guess that events in ferguson aint much of a suprise)..but in the same breath i say the only way you change a perception is by…

The tragic deaths of Liverpool fans at Hillsborough was the result of a criminally corrupt police force showing utter contempt for the Health and Safety of the citizens they are paid to protect. The establishment cover up post disaster has caused reverberations in British society for 25 years, the courage of the friends and family…

As previously stated, there is almost always more to the story. Here in Houston our mayor who is female and openly gay is doing all she can to take away our FD benefits. I don't like her because of her agenda against firefighters. It has nothing to do with her gender or sexual preferences, but…
