It Is a Shame

I overheard on the news the other day that the Congo is the rape capital of the world. It's a shame that there has to be a rape capital, but let's be frank here. As long as there are humans on Earth, there will be a rape capital. We just have a tendency to rape each other, along with murdering, stealing, and taking advantage of the weak to make ourselves stronger. Given tha we have to have a rape capital, it's a shame that it can't be in Djibouti. Then we could all go around saying "The rape capital is in Djibouti," and, oh, how we'd laugh, and laugh, and laugh.

Except for the people being raped in Djibouti, of course.

I am always amazed by how far people will go in the name of power. How do you have so little respect for humanity that you can rape, pillage and kill your neighbors (or anyone for that matter)?

Of course, Georgia's titles as one of the fattest states doesn't look so bad compared with rape capital of the world. So there's that.

Well, Julie, I don't actually rape, pillage or kill my neighbors. I usually won't even kill, rape, or pillage spiders, so there's that. Some of those lady spiders, though... There's some real junk in some of those trunks.

But really, I only brought this up so I could make the Djibouti pun. You're kind of harshing my buzz even if this was an cynical joke.

And were you calling me fat? At least Georgians can say we're not from Mississippi, which is both the fattest and most poorly educated state, I think. Still, if it weren't for Atlanta and all the urban hipsters, we'd probably be much closer to Mississippi.

Wow. Making light of rape. Way to go, Jacob.

Personally, I think it'd be funnier if the rape capital were Canada. Think about it: Canadian rape. 'Cause you know there has to be something they're not telling us about our neighbors to the north. They always give me that little sideways look, like they're sizing me up. Makes me wonder...

I'm just glad the rape capital isn't Cape Town.

Djibouti is my favorite country. I want to go there so I can call someone, and when they say "Where are you?", I can say, "In Djibouti!"

There has to be a Uranus joke somewhere here...

Well, now you've made a rape joke. You can pretty much forget about running for a high political office. At least the pressure to protect your reputation is off now. Feels good, doesn't it?
