The sub-moronic ramblings of a semi-functioning illiterate


As Valentine’s Day approaches I thought it only appropriate to interview the most wanted man, uh…boy in the world. I’m talking about the one, the only….CUPID.

CUPID – Pleasure to be here. Despite this being my busy time of year, I can always find time for you H.E., you helped my blog become what it is today and for that my heart is ever at your service…..You know, if you wanted I could set you up with somebody? I still feel bad about your last relationship. In my defense though, you were the one who fucked that up. Cupid’s arrow is rarely wrong and sometimes you got to give a little to get a little if you know what I mean….

***** So tell the readers, what is the hardest part being the God of Desire?

CUPID – The hardest part? My cock.

* silence *

Nah, I’m just fucking with you. Nothing like a little dirty humor to lighten the mood. Seriously though, the hardest part has got to be humanity. Fifty years ago this would not have been my answer, I mean, fifty years ago people knew how to make a commitment to one another. Now everyone is so needy and expects so much from the person they are with, no one knows how to stay in anything longer than a few years. Its sad really. I blame the hippie generation for this. All that free love fucked up real love for the rest of you. Well, that and women’s lib. Give me the days where I just shot a guy with love and never had to worry about what the woman wanted, because if she didn’t go with the guy I shot then he would just take her. It sounds bad but god-damn it made my job easier.

***** What’s with the bow and arrow?

CUPID – Are you serious? They’re fucking magic, that’s what! It brings forth love and happiness and shit to all that the arrows pierce….Whats with the….Look, if you find a magic shotgun for sale then I’ll buy it, but since there is no such thing, I’ll stick to my bow and arrow thank you very much..

***** How does love in the twenty-first century differ from say, the Renaissance period?

CUPID – Two words, E- Harmony. Them and all those other find love web sites that have popped up since the internet began. Back in the good ole days you didn’t have to fill out a twenty questions exam to get shacked up with somebody, you trusted my arrow to make the right connection. Now though, since these computer cupids have shown up, love is down, STDs are up and the murder rate in Juarez, Mexico has skyrocketed.

That last one has nothing to do with what we are talking about, I just got done reading a book about Juarez and that crap just keeps slipping out, sorry. You get my…..shit….what was my point…….Oh yeah, the Renaissance! It was different.

***** Have you ever missed an intended target? 

CUPID(long pause) On the record, no. Off the record, fuck yeah.

Look, it’s not easy, this job I mean. Its a ton of pressure for one God,you people are so fucking needy, especially you women. From now on, why not just say what it is you’re really looking for in a guy. First off, sense of humor is not that fucking important to you, so stop saying it first. It would make my job and your connection to your true love so much easier to make.That being said, I’ve fucked up here and there throughout time….Do I regret doing it? No, I rack it up to learning experiences…….I do feel bad about Whitney Houston though, I never should have introduced her to Bobby. That was my bad and for that I apologize.

Otherwise, mistakes or no mistakes, once that arrow hits you it’s no longer my problem. Love can happen anywhere, but I can only do so much, it’s up to you to make it work. Here’s an example, that teacher that slept with her student a few years back. You remember, right? She slept with him, got pregnant, got busted, got fired, got jail time, had the baby, got out of jail and then, got back together with him. That’s dedication people. It’s also a tale of love through the toughest of obstacles. What she did was wrong, there’s no doubt about it, I messed that one up, but in the end the love prevailed. All you humans see are the bad things in the people that I hook you up with, somehow you stop seeing the good after being with someone awhile. I never understood this, because the second you break it off, suddenly all you remember are the good qualities, the things that were always there but you would look past. Everyone fights, everyone has issues, it’s up to you to work past them and make it last. Not me.

***** Mythology tells us you inherited this job from your mother, Venus. Tell me, how did it feel growing up with the original MILF as your mom?

CUPID- My mother only talked to me when she wanted something from me. She is a vain, manipulative, alcoholic and I hated growing up with her as a mom. Did you ever see the movie Mommy Dearest? Imagine that but in God form, that’s how my childhood was. I’ve got so many issues because of her I had to cancel my subscription. We haven’t seen each other in years.

***** The identity of your father has never been made public, although Mars has been a popular suspect throughout history. How true are the rumors that you are scheduled to appear on an episode of THE MAURY POVICH SHOW with the intent to confront him with a paternity test?

CUPID– What? Where did you hear that? Of course it’s not true! There’s no need. I found out years ago who my real father was and it certainly wasn’t Mars. No, no, my father lives in Florida, his name is Dale Gibbons and he’s a retired nightclub owner from Miami. Cool guy actually.

***** Was it difficult growing up as an obese child with obvious bladder control problems?

CUPID – All those paintings and sculptures were taken when I was going through a growth stage of my life. Look at me now! Fit, tan and with 12 pack abs. Do I look anything like those pictures? No. I worked hard to get past those looks. Jenny Craig helped of course, but it was mostly me and my dedication to get fit that did it.

And as far as the bladder control goes, I don’t know where that got started. I never wore a diaper, I always went in the nude back then. Censorship is a bitch. Some people can’t handle the male nude form so you got to cover it up, that’s where the diaper comes in.

***** Fill us in on your unfortunate accident where you accidentally shot yourself and fell in love with Psyche?

CUPID – You’re getting these questions from Wikipedia, right? See, that’s why you don’t trust a user controlled reference site, they get it all wrong usually. Okay, you want the real story between me and Psyche? Here goes…

My mom comes to me one day complaining about this chick, saying she’s taking all her worshipers and shit. So mom asks me to go over to this girls place and make her fall in love with the most vile thing I could think of. High as a kite and pissed off because I was in the middle of a game when I was summoned, Saints Row 3 I think, we get all the games before humans do, its one of the perks of being a God, I grabbed my bow and arrows and flew over to her house.

As I’m sneaking into her room I’m trying my best to be extra quiet, but you know how when you’re trying to be quiet every sound is amplified, like, a thousand times? Well that’s what was happening in that room. Every step seemed to cascade through the whole house, and me being high certainly didn’t help.

Finally I get real close to her and start to pull out an arrow, as I’m doing this, her little Min Pin comes running up, yapping the whole way. It scared the shit out of me and I dropped the arrow. I hated that dog. Twinkles was his name. Can you believe that? The dog was totally gay too, he used to try and hump one of the guards dogs, a big German Shepard named KrissKross, it was hilarious.

Anyway, I dropped my arrow and it scraped her foot. Not me like Wikipedia would have you believe, but hers. She wakes up, bing, bang, boom, she sees me, falls in love and hasn’t left me alone since.

In the beginning it was cool. I would sneak over for some late night tail and scurry off again, but after a while it started to get a little stale. I think she saw how I was feeling and figured that the only way to keep me around was to get pregnant.  When I found out I was pissed! I totally wasn’t ready to be a dad, I’m still not but it is what it is. In the end we are all responsible for our actions and so I had a kid with her. If you’re looking for morals that’s about as good as it gets. Wrap that shit unless you want a world of shit. Either that or stick to stickin’ the back door, if you get my drift.

***** So, is the God of Desire dating anyone at the moment?

CUPID – Jen Aniston. Six months now. It’s nice I guess.

    • I know what you mean. It’s all seems dirty somehow.

      February 14, 2012 at 4:24 am

  5. talker96

    One of the most touching and beautifully written pieces I’ve ever seen on this site. All it needed to be perfect was a funny picture of a cat with a wacky headline underneath. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with a cat picture.
    That being said, good post……and use more cat pics, they’re hilarious.

    February 14, 2012 at 4:33 am

    • You mean, like….THIS???

      February 14, 2012 at 4:37 am

      • Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong.
        How the hell do I unsee that?!?

        February 14, 2012 at 9:27 am

        • Dude…Afro cat is awesome!

          February 14, 2012 at 9:31 am

  6. I think I’m printing out Afro Cat and hanging it in my office. Nice post, BTW. Cupid is one foul mouthed little demon…I love him!

    February 14, 2012 at 7:03 am

    • I’m thinking Cupid needs a session with a good shrink.

      February 14, 2012 at 9:33 am

  7. Another great interview, H.E. Valentine’s Day is my least favorite day of the year, but beginning the day with this hilarious interview has taken the edge off – thanks for that!

    February 14, 2012 at 8:37 am

    • Yeah, Valentine’s day is my least favorite as well. I used to blame myself for being a loser at love, but now I know whose fault it REALLY is!

      February 14, 2012 at 9:36 am

  8. Hope you’ve conducted your interviews for the year already.
    There were an awful lot of PR people running around outside Easter Bunny HQ when I passed this morning. Heard the phrases “That HE guy” and “No way in hell”…

    February 14, 2012 at 9:30 am

    • Hehehehehe…..

      Oh I’ve got something planned, alright. *wrings hands*

      February 14, 2012 at 9:37 am

  9. This almost certainly be the funniest thing I read all day.

    At least, the funniest thing not said by a politician.

    February 14, 2012 at 9:49 am

    • Yikes.

      “This almost certainly WILL be the funniest thing I read all day.”

      Damn hangovers.

      February 14, 2012 at 9:50 am

      • And on a Tuesday! I’m impressed.

        February 14, 2012 at 10:02 am

  10. Reblogged this on The Fog of Ward. and commented:
    This may well be one of the funniest things you end up reading today.

    February 14, 2012 at 10:07 am

  11. Next time I get a bow in the arse I just be thankful it wasn’t buckshot.

    February 14, 2012 at 10:42 am

    • At least you’d have someone who loves you there to pick it out, right?

      February 14, 2012 at 5:50 pm

  12. lol! Love this. And you are dead on with the sense of humor. I would like a man that doesn’t freaking NAG…

    Happy Heart Day!

    February 14, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    • Happy Heart Day to you!

      February 14, 2012 at 7:06 pm

  13. fonduekid

    F…ing hilarious 🙂 Thanks

    February 14, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    • Glad to help. 🙂

      February 14, 2012 at 7:07 pm

  14. I didn’t expect Cupid to throw the f-bomb out so robustly. Then again, he probably does have a huge, throbbing…headache from all that matchmaking. What a stressful job! 🙂

    February 14, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    • As my mother would say, “He used to be such a nice boy. What happened?”

      February 14, 2012 at 7:09 pm

  15. Cupid was responsible for VD, you know. And Syphilis, which was named after one of his old girlfriends, as was Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. They each broke his heart, so he named diseases after them, and then spread them around all over the earth just to rub it in.

    February 14, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    • Gagging at “rub it in.”

      February 15, 2012 at 12:46 pm

  16. Kim

    Cupid has potty-mouth, like a bitch!!!! LOL

    February 14, 2012 at 11:53 pm

    • Who knew? 🙂
