If I ever ordered food or drink, and the food or drink that got to me was in a container labeled "Big Dick," I admit I'm not sure how I'd react. There are so many possible reactions. Perhaps I'd blush, and oh-so-casually check to make sure my pants weren't unbuttoned. Perhaps I'd check out the person behind the counter and decide whether to flatter them back. Perhaps, if I were with friends, I'd show them all the cup, loudly and proudly. Quite possibly, I'd frame it and put it on my mantel, next to that old receipt that says "suck my dick fuck-face
" on it.
However I'd react, though, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't
react by getting all pissy
about it and writing a letter bitching about it to a consumer website.

First of all, lots of us are guilty of making small penis jokes. Me, I tend to make those jokes about people who drive Hummers, and people with car stereo systems that can wake the dead. However, there's a time and place for these kinds of jokes, and the workplace isn't one of them
The dude has my sympathy. We make a lot of penis size in this culture (hell, in most cultures), and it's one of those things that we don't really have the power to do anything about. And now, his picture is in the news, and everyone
knows he's got a little one. But here's the alarming part: these assholes handle airline security. You know, all that theater that the terrorists drove us to put in place so that we can indulge our ever-growing paranoia and proudly lie about how the terrorists haven't won.
And as important as these people are supposed to be, they obviously can't be bothered to act like adults doing a job.A Complete Dick
So, by now you've heard about George Alan Rekers, that asshole anti-gay activist, getting caught at an airport with a "luggage handler" he met on rentboy.com
The rentboy has my sympathy, too. On the one hand, the whole internet knows he's got a big one. On the other hand, the whole internet now knows he's a rentboy, and that's going to give him problems in all sorts of places: dinner with the family, job interviews, high school reunions...
He seems like a good kid. A bit underdone (he's 20, Rekers is 61), but a good kid. He doesn't deserve this kind of "fame." That said, as long as he's already stuck with it, I hope he helps nail that self-loathing hypocrite to a wall.
