This Link is Beneath You and Me Both

The Onion has a great piece on "self-abuse." Perhaps the only funnier treatment of this topic, without ever saying what is at issue, is the memorable Seinfeld episode "The Contest."

A sample:

"We placed ads in the back of men's magazines and newsweeklies," Hattchett said. "The sisters find that the majority of the victims who reach out to them are unable to escape their tormentors, even during a short phone call. We thought having non-threatening, soft-voiced women answer the phones would make it easier for victims to discuss the problem, but most callers only seem interested in the operators' fashion choices or whether they like to 'party.'"
