In a pickle with Viagra

There are some things you just can't make up.

A couple of days ago, I ran into some website-related trouble at work. I was trying to add an event sponsor to the website, and it wouldn't let me add them without adding their URL. Unfortunately, their domain name had expired and the site was being squatted by an ad for Viagra or something like it.
So I sent an email to two guys at our national organization with the subject line, "a bit of a pickle."

Yes, really. I realized what I had done and laughed out loud. No one wrote me back with smiley faces...I think I probably made them uncomfortable.

Anyhow, I found a fix, so no one thinks a transportation company is hawking sex pharma.

Somewhat more disturbing, I visited my family and when I went in to check Yahoo email, the autofill prefilled the link to "YouPorn." Um. I have a brother who just turned 18. He pled not guilty.
"I don't use that computer," he said. Right. He has a phone and an ipad.

So it's either 1. another member of my family (too sickening to contemplate! Family members don't have sex. We were all brought by the stork) or 2. someone who was cat sitting did some internet cat sitting as well.

Or, as someone pointed out to me today, "He may have looked at it after all. Everything is bigger on a computer screen."

And we all know that size matters. My little brother is also legally blind.

So what is YouPorn anyway? Is it a perverse version of YouTube? Are there any - ahem - guidelines?
(You must know about razors? You must not play Sir Mix-A-Lot? You must not compare yourself to Ron Jeremy?)

I'm not brave enough to go visit the site, but inquiring minds want to know.

I've never heard of the YouPorn site but now my imagination is working overtime! And it's not pretty.

Charles Gramlich said...

wow, a site such as you porn would never have crossed my mind. now it will of course.

Elephant's Child said...

Drat you. My inquiring mind is off - and running. When you find out I hope you will let us know.

DWei said...

Free pornsite. Nothing special.

Lynn said...

Never heard of it. :)

Introverted Art said...

That are things about our family members that are better unknown FOREVER!

Vanessa Morgan said...

Never heard of it. Probably one of the many sites of that type, I suppose, and nothing out of the ordinary.

Ms. CrankyPants said...

This is going to sound like bullshit, but I *swear* a friend told me about it! My FRIEND (really! No, really!!) said it's porn made by regular people, not actors.

Abby said...

I was guessing - yes GUESSING - that it's like a nasty YouTube, as Mrs. CrankyPants seems to be confirming through HER FRIEND. I wonder if they use GoPros?

Granny Annie said...

It is highly doubtful that I am Ron Jeremy since that sounds like a guy and I am not a guy at least I wasn't the last time I looked. However, now I have a new name for my next bawdy rooster:) Know nothing of YouPorn...sorry.

Ms. CrankyPants said...

Abby, yes, we do.

DAMMIT! I mean, my FRIEND says they do. Blast...

Furry Bottoms said...

*laughs* now I know why the Wyzard likes you! I am always terrified when that kind of thing pops up on my screen at work. They're supposed to "monitor" everything you do on the computer so anytime something porn-ish pops up on my computer I have a freakish meltdown. Much like being in the bathroom and somebody in the next stall poops and you walk out to wash your hands and a new person walks in the door, smells the poop and assumes it was you and you want to scream "It wasn't me!!!!!!" OH wait. Its not like that at all. Nevermind.

Furry Bottoms said...

I am not looking at that site, by the way. I am still at work.

OldLady Of The Hills said...

Never heard of that site---and in truth, I have never heard or known of any porn sites...It just doesn't interest me....I think it IS interesting that it is Porn made by regular people----we are certainly narcissistic people, aren't we....OY! LOL!

Never send a boy to do a man's job.

On another note: My curiosity means I must give it a look. If you don't hear back from me............

Cheryl said...

I had never heard of YouPorn but I think Ms. Cranky Pants' friend is probably right. That sounds like a site that is a "must have" on the Internet. DIY Porn, of course...it makes perfect sense.

Mike_D said...

As one of your best friends, I will investigate YouPorn and report back.

For science...

G. B. Miller said...

Short version: it's a porn site.

Riot Kitty said...

Leave it to two guys to tell me what it is!

Blue said...

YouPorn... haven't tried it yet. Also... welcome on board the Blue Bora Rocket.

Munir said...

I am not curious enough. You know once you search a site, it keeps popping up. I don't want to be the one responsible for adding things that other people don't need to see.

Birdie said...

YouPorn? I am surprised that someone didn't think of that sooner.

Riot Kitty said...

Blue: Why thank you, my friend!
Munir: That's an interesting take!
Birdie: Me too.

Dr. Cynicism said...

YouPorn... a free YouTube-like site that streams porn in all kinds of different categories and... um, nevermind. So I've heard.

A Beer For The Shower said...

Sounds like someone needs to learn how to use Incognito mode. Or delete browser history at the very least. I thought that was a porn surfing standard?

Riot Kitty said...

Dr C: Welcome back!
ABFTS: Um. Yeah.

CraveCute said...

Hahaha! And I really love the expression on cat #2's face!!
