The Mighty Minions of Mire, submitted by specter13.

If you've ever seen a Gilligan's Island episode involving quicksand (about 1 out of every 3), you should know that the protocol for quicksand escape is to remain motionless while someone rescues you in a comical manner, possibly involving a gorilla suit. The fine folks at The Mighty Minions of Mire would disagree with this, and instead recommend that should you find yourself sinking in quicksand, the best tactic possible is to become horrified at the fact that one of the many visitors to their web site is probably masturbating to your situation. Here's their defense:

What is this quicksand/mud fetish all about? Well, generally, we find ourselves erotically charged by images, stories and such depicting people in situations involving quicksand and/or mud (usually deep mud). Most commonly, our fantasies involve the opposite sex in such situations, but not always (yes, there are gay 'quicksanders' who are primarily interested in scenes of the same sex sinking).

They are also quick to point out:

More women will be showing up here soon.

Certainly! I'm a bit disappointed that dying in quicksand is a bit uncommon in this day and age, not to mention that it requires a lenghty scouting process that basement-dwelling pervs don't have the motivation and non-bedsore-ridden skin to perform; because of this, the amount of Mighty Minion fatalities must be pretty low. As a consolation, I'd like to think that anyone who attempts to recreate quicksand fanfiction by renting a backhoe will be chased out of town with power tools, far from any place with internet access.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
