The Online Schmekel*

Smile For the Camera


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

IAFF Corruption: Nice Ride, Dude
The IAFF membership has no idea what is spent by the king pin. Wine of choice often is Opus One and other expensive wines. One would only have to see his private wine locker. It's worth thousands! Do you think he spent his money, I know he doesn't.

If this is correct, Eric, he certainly didn't claim it on his tax returns.

Hi, Curtis. I would answer your question by saying that the information fully represents his current reckless spending of member's dues. If I am wrong, and he has suddenly switched to eating at Golden Corral and Sizzler's, he should prove it. Stay tuned and thanks. Eric
