Things I thought I'd never see

...include "Amazon Women On the Moon" accurately predicting the future. Witness this press release, verbatim as always:


Don't be surprised if the next person you date asks for your Safe Sex Passport!

Research shows the biggest fear both men and women have about sex is getting a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), especially HIV, and rightly so.

With nearly 19 million NEW Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) infections occurring each year in the U.S. alone, 1 in 5 of your readers will be affected by an STD at some point in their lives, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Gonzalo Paternoster, founder and CEO of SSP BioAnalytics, Inc., has taken on the fight of preventing the spread of HIV and STDs through his 'outside the box' creation of the Safe Sex Passport, and the world is starting to listen. The Safe Sex Passport will make a difference for your readers as they become empowered to take responsibility for their own health and the health of others.


If you're not familiar with "Amazon Women On the Moon," it's a 1987 screwball comedy in the style of "Kentucky Fried Movie," directed by and starring dozens of C-listers (Arsenio Hall, Ed Begley Jr., Howard Hesseman).

The segment "2 I.D.'s" features Steve Guttenberg showing up for a blind date with Rosanna Arquette, only to be subjected to a thorough computerized check of his dating background (his final mortal sin: repeatedly pretending to like Meryl Streep movies). I'm pretty sure the SSPP doesn't go into that much detail, but it's still eerie.

Anyway, there's more to make fun of. "1 in 5 of your readers will be affected by an STD" sounds like a threat; Gonzalo Paternoster sounds like a MadTV sketch character; and... uh, let's just say that Porkchop has complained before about overuse of the phrase "outside the box."
