A Koan. Sort Of.

If a tree in the forest falls on Marlee Matlin and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
No.
Of course it does, you idiot.
Huh? Are you on drugs?
Who the hell is Marlee Matlin?

What should I do with my chainsaw?

1. Pawn it.

2. Throw it into the nearest lake.

3. Dismantle it and mail the parts press release style to her next of kin.

Of course it makes a sound, but there has to be someone in a box close to where she is smooshed recreating that sound in sign language.

But Karma, I CARE!

OK, for all of you who are voting, who the hell is Marlee Matlin, I shall tell you. She's a deaf actress. She won an Oscar for "Children of A Lesser God." She was also a regular on "Picket Fences" for a while, her character went from criminal to mayor. She's been around for years. She also had a recurring role on "The West Wing" for a while. Far from a regular, but back over a few years to do guest appearances as the same character. There are pictures of her on the IMDb if you want to take a look. And yes, the question is an updated version of a Helen Keller joke.

Have you ever had sex with a deaf person - someone who's been deaf since birth? It's... kinky even when the sex is vanilla. They moan and gasp like us, but it sounds, um, really different.

OK, why didn't the bulk of the comments for this post appear until today? I love the way the software works.

spin, number three, of course. It's the most dramatic.

lifeisablast, I already did. However, when I checked the RSS feed yesterday, it wasn't visible to anyone but me. So, I had to repost the comment. Deaf actress, in a nutshell. She has an Academy Award and everything.

digdug, HEY! After those two years in the "home" they gave me a piece of paper declaring me sane!

Fallic, you're a sick, sick man. I admire that in a person.

handyman, I care, dammit!

Dysgyzed, if I was, I would. But I'm not, so I can't.

corezon, heh. That's not even the worst of what I ask people.

Voodoo, no, I haven't. But considering at least two deaf women from the site visit my blog, I think we're both in trouble. The one only thought it was funny the first time I asked her at a meet and greet to turn around so I could talk behind her back. hmfpht.

nightstalker, tehehe... Looked her up, did you?

LOL...wow!! Interesting when some people make fun of deaf people like that. Ann, I like this joke, but some other deaf people won't like this joke, hun.

Voodoo, hey, you have no idea, but umm..have you had?? You can try me for sex to see for yourself and shut up, lol. (j/k)
