"Can I masturbate to you?" is going to be my new go to question when iZombies walk into me.

I just clicked on the link and read the story about how the skateboarder was hitching a ride, holding on to the back of a truck. It infuriates me. It's bad enough when teenagers take risks doing stupid things like this, but he was a 32-year-old man with a wife and two young kids. Please, please, please, I beg all the other dudes out there who think it is cool to do this sort of thing to please think twice when you have kids. It's not cool to get run over by a truck, leaving your family behind. Totally pointless and infuriating.

Hitching a ride on a truck while riding a skateboard should be the last thing on your bucket list because it's probably the last thing you will ever do. Just hit a bump or a pothole and you might end up under the truck's wheels, just like all those extras in the latest Mad Max movie.Sad but completely avoidable.

Every time I walk by Quintessence and see it filled with young women, I have to fight the urge to stop and ask them if they are unaware of the fact that their money is helping to support a serial flasher. There should be a sign - with photos - on the exterior so anyone who walks in there is fully aware of the owner's skeevy predilections.

That's a shame about chef Dan. It's pervy, but not an atrocity. I hope he can control his compulsions in the future and be able to recover from this.

So if you're Mom was sitting on a bench and some dude came by and shoved his dick in her face, you'd be cool with that ? 'Cause last time I checked, whipping it out was against the law.... just FYI.

So my Grandmother was in Moscow in the late 80's. Sitting in a park minding her 70-something year old business. Guy walks up to her & whips it out. She looked down & just started laughing. Guy ran off. Thought I'd share.

Excerpted from today's AM New York:

"A raw food chef and serial subway pervert struck again Tuesday at a Manhattan station - the third time this year, police officials said...Police officials say he has also been linked to two sex attacks that the Manhattan Special Victims Unit has been investigating at the 8th Street station and Union Square at the beginning of the year...Hoyt became notorious for his creepy acts in the subway when he was arrested five times in 2005 and 2008, police officials said. He pleaded guilty in 2006 to misdemeanor public lewdness, and was sentenced to two years of probation and counseling."

Yeah. Sorry, that's an atrocity. Many of 'em.

Makeout, your grandma sounds like a hoot and a half.
