Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

The male brain? You'd have to do your research at its satellite location near the gonads.


As all men are able to talk to swordtail fish, (one more thing we keep hidden from the ladies) I asked one, and hell, he came with the same answer this species does!

Reminds me of an old joke where God is telling Adam why he made woman so beautiful, kind, etc. Finally Adam asks, but why did you make her so dumb and God answers, "So she would love you."

I never could tell a joke, but you get the idea.

Donna B: Same set-up. God's pulling 'gifts' out of his bag of godly tricks and is down to the last two. First one he pulls out: 'Ability to pee standing up' and Adam goes all Horshak on him and demands that gift without knowing what's left in the bag.

Last one God pulls out: 'Multiple orgasms.' Eve smiles knowingly.


On a camping trip (but only then), you'd gladly sell your orgasms for a mess of don't-need-a-pottage.

Camping trips are when you get yourself a Go-Girl:


What a cool product!! This one sounds like it might actually work.


Amba! They have a twitter feed! Gimme that go-girl mobile and I'll pee all over the to speak!

Donna B.

I think the "Go-Girl" twitter feed is not one I'd follow, even if were I HUGE fan of twitter. Oh my... the horrid possibilities:

~~I just wrote my name in the snow.

~~If only the astronaut stalker had known about this.

~~Peeing in the backyard in the dark really is fun.


LOL! Your parody is probably better than the real thing.

I don't particularly care to follow a brand, even a brave and plucky brand.


Plus, does anyone really want "pee tweets?"
