And that's when...

Take a good look at the above photo as it's very important.

That was made by my friend Dave for two reasons. He obviously hates Halle Barry (I'm not sure why). But Dave put that photo together to illustrate a concept we came up with a couple of years ago.

Back then, there was this fellow who was found in a bush outside of a hotel. He got extremely drunk and was discovered crying and covered in his own vomit. He had also managed to pee his pants.

So we developed a phrase to describe the exact point where an individual experiences the most intense personal humiliation imaginable -- "That's when he pissed himself."

Yeah, it's great stuff. Think about this example. There was a prosecuting attorney a few years ago who liked to cavort with female prisoners. He was caught in the act with one.

What happened next? He lost his job, his wife left him and his career was over. So the exact moment when he was caught with the prisoner is the one that marked the beginning of the period where he lost everything.

That's when he pissed himself.

Remember Gary Hart? It looked like he might have a shot at the presidency in 1988 until he was caught with Donna Rice. Henceforth, he will be known as the guy who was caught with Rice and is politically dead as Geraldine Ferraro.

That's when he pissed himself.

You see? That's one powerful phrase there, isn't it? I hope it catches on and is trotted out whenever someone engages in activity that is so humiliating there's just no other good way to describe it.

No wonder the crime rate is up in Little Rock - all the adults are busy putting wet patches on photos!

Except you, of course, The Hawg! Perhaps they should make you Police Commissioner. I am sure all the criminals in Little Rock will piss themselves then. said...

Maybe you should get a patent on that phrase?


Eat Well. Live Well.

I actually see a big future for this phrase (and for the picture of poor Halle Berry). Seriously, I can hear people all chiming in, "AND THAT'S WHEN . . . " Dude, definitely trademark this or something. It's a winner.

So why Halle then?

The Natural State Hawg said...

Denford -- I think that's a great idea. I'd crack down on crime in a heartbeat. They'd implement The Hawg Plan in crime-ridden cities around the nation.

Paul -- There's an idea!

JD -- We've had a lot of fun with that phrase over the years and I'm inclined to spread it around.

Harrison -- You'd have to ask the guy who put the photo together!
