Some of you might have to think about it for a while.

A teenaged friend of mine had been keeping her sexual preference hidden from her parents, knowing that they’d react badly. Her parents discovered her secret, blew sky-high, and sent her off to Amsterdam to straighten her out.

I’m sure I should feel sympathy more than anything, but instead, all I can think is, “my God, so many jokes!”

Well...that sounds like a great idea...lets straighten kids out by OD-ing them on their habits...

Probably one of the worst places in the world you could choose to straighten out a kid

Obviously Amsterdam. Prostitution is legal there, and at least if she were a prostitute, she could get forgiveness. After all, do you remember Jesus forgiving any gay people???? Didn't think so.

I hear they have dam good bier in Amsterdam. Make sure she doesn't mix her beer with the many legal drugs!

I feel disappointed because either nobody got my "land of dikes" joke, or nobody else thought it was funny.

I got it. I just thought I'd be cool and not be obvious about it. You know, a post like "haha...that was good...because Amsterdam has lots of dikes...and that's also slang for a lesbian...good one". Really, Ben, we're smoother than that.

The story is great because it is hilarious for the above reference and ironic for the city's notorious reputation for otherwise illegal activity. We got it.

Alright, as long as my subtle humor is appreciated.

I thought it, but didn't think you were going there until I read your tags. So I went with the less vulgar humor.

In Grand rapids we have a lot of Dutch people, many with rather unfortunate names: Mordyke and Molesta for examples.
