Default Theme party menus ideas please: Martha is back

I am planning a make your own fashion ankle bracelet party to celebrate
Martha's release from prison. Any cute ideas for menu items that would
be considered "good things"? I have come up with peneitentiary pasta,
shellblock C kabobs but would love other creative ideas. Thanks in
advance.

Someone suggested pigs in blankets! That might be considered
politically incorrrect but is being considered.

Work the term Shiv into the kabobs.

Gotta serve cupcakes for dessert.

If you're serving alcohol, flavor it with really ripe fruit or
something that tastes really yeasty, to simulate cellbrewed wine/gin.

Give each other really messy tattoos with felt tip markers. For more
reality, put some rouge around them to simulate infections.

For appatizers: cut triangle shaped pieces of bread and toast it, find
triangle crackers, or use tortiallas. Spread on some cheese and top
with shreded cheese or crumbled up shredded wheat or chopped-up alfalfa
sprouts or whatever; rug munchies!

Why? For using a mildly vulgar term, or for reffering to same sex
relations, or for using a mildly vulgar term to refer to same sex
relations?

If the first, then guilty. If the other two; why?

It was offensive and, worse, not even funny at all.

I become "mildly" offended when people are disrespected because of who they
love. I discussed this with a ******* friend of mine, and (to paraphrase)
she said it's like using an ugly word like n*****. If you're part of
whichever group is being discussed, it's okay to make a joke about
yourself. It's hurtful when someone else says the same thing.

Are you a *******, Greg? If you are, then you're forgiven. I just think
it's weird for parents to name their daughter Greg.

Oy. I see you're getting beat up -- I think it's funny. All of it.

It's like yesterday's paper, they solicited advice from the readers, advice
for
Martha. Several women had thoughtful comments to make and they printed
one from a guy. Start a line of prison linens, black and white striped
sheets,
etc. HAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHA Wait while I catch my breath,
that's the funniest joke I heard since Martha's going to redecorate her
cell.
Hoooo WEEEE, was that a knee slapper. I thought Greg was more
than that post.

How about guns carved out of potatoes? Then baked,

"It was offensive and, worse, not even funny at all.

nancy "

See, I don't see why it's offensive. I see that it is tasteless, and
that's what I
intended.

Comments about same sex encounters in prison are a staple of discussion
of prison life.
Whether it's jokes about dropping the soap, or ugly tirades about some
criminal getting
what he deserves by having to dance with bubba, the subject always
comes up when discussing
men in prison.

So is it wrong to transfer this to women in prison? I don't think so.
Good for the goose.

The term then? It's vulgar, but it just doesn't have an edge to it.
It's not degrading, because the act
itself isn't degrading. It's not especially disgusting, because
neither word in the phrase calls up images of
unclean or unhealthy items. You could as easily say "Wig Kisser" or
"Merkin Gourmet"

It's not even a phrase used in anger. When people are insulting
*******s, the term of choice is "Dyke".

No, It isn't an offensive term. It is a 12-year-old-boy mildly
ignorant lockeroom josh. It's tasteless and innapropriate.
So is a party themed around poking fun at someone's questionable
incarceration. It wasn't highly amusing, but
it wasn't a complete bomb either. It appealled to the other
12-year-old boys in the group, and trust me, that's just about
all of us at one moment or another.

As for Damsel's question of whether or not I'm a *******;

1.)well, I cook, clean, bake pastries, am good at dressing myself and
picking out curtains, use moisturizer, enjoy fragrant handsoap,
and am intimate with a woman. I have quite a bit in common with at
least some *******s.

2.)Are you? If not, I'm not sure you get to be offended for them.

Oh, hold on. I'm confused now. Was it the lameness of some of the
other
jokes? Hmmm. Well, that's another matter. But how else do you joke
about a prison theme? Obviously, Martha wasn't in OZ, but isn't that
part
of the fun of a joke party? Going over the top? Infected prison
tatoos and
bathtub (well, other plumbing is more likely) hooch are certainly over
the top
for girlfriends getting together to goof around.

Thanks, however, for the confidence.

Good for you!

I get offended on behalf of others all the time. I'm one of those
maternal, nurturing types. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Don't forget to get the word "poncho" in there. Apparently, there was a big
cry for her poncho when got released. It was made by another inmate but
that is as much as I know.

Poncho Punch? Fruit punch with cactus juice? I got it! Poncho Pockets!
Pita stuffed with your choice of meats or metal instruments!
