Wal~Mart Wednesday: The Joke

A picture on the inter-webs made me think of one of my favorite jokes…

“The masochist said ‘Beat me.’ The sadist said ‘No.'”

This joke cleverly shows the distinction between masochists and sadists. A masochist derives pleasure from receiving pain while a sadist derives pleasure from inflicting pain. So the sadist, in denying the masochist the pleasure he would receive from the pain of a beating, pains the masochist and therefore, obtains pleasure.  TA-DAH!! (Read that last sentence a couple of times if you like. I worked hard on it.)

What brought this to mind? You ask.

Her pants read:

And I thought, “No…no, God, no.”

Thank you, People of Wal~Mart.
