Yeah, it’s pretty gross.
i hopeno images came up!
when i was 13 i had to learn about it by reading the back of my tampon box. then i asked my mom. but she wasnt home. i asked my DAD.
Charlie, I would recommend brain bleach for you. Men other than doctors shouldn’t have to know what Toxic Shock Syndrome is…
Already on it.
-like- I bet she doesn’t though or else she would be hospitalized.
that’s gross dude
it’s life-threatening… I hope Cathy/Claire is okay.
I just remembered that they may need to get to a doctor
How do you know their names are Cathy and Claire?
That’s what Charlie named them for censorship purposes.
Omg and you had to here that. I feel so sorry for you. That is nasty :(
umm charlie men can get it too. not the same of course, but they can
Charlie I’m wondering, do GAM say more than 1 stupid thing a day, or do you just pick out the best? :)
Sometimes they say 10 stupid things in a day. Other times they, mostly when they are sleeping, they don’t say anything stupid. It’s kinda random. But I’m always computer ready.
And now you know, Charlie. Now you know.
Ahh, the things you learn just by listening to the girls. Although this is probably one of those things you’d rather not know eh? Poor you.
I hope she went to see the doctor though; TSS is potentially fatal.
I doubt she actually has it. GAM think they have every disease.
good luck charlie
^ I’m just going to pretend you had no intention reminding of any crappy Disney show.
didnt think of it till it was already posted sorry
Oh my, this one went from “Dear girls above me” to “Oh dear god!! No! NOOO!” I feel so bad for you Charlie.
Charlie, somewhat unrelated but… I found your blog yesterday was reading your backlogs when I got to the part with the pillow. I then realized that not only was this stuff hilarious, but 100% legit. I lost it, and could not contain the laughter much to the suspicion of my co-workers and various bosses.
I read the entire backlog of your site in one go. Keep it up man, your a hero for being able to tolerate that kind of idiocy in your life. I would have snapped by now…
Wow, thanks so much for this. Made my day.
Anytime. Also I am a douche for using the wrong form of “your” in my reply. Please accept my apologies.
I think this is a first though. The girls knew something (that wasn’t fashion related) that you had to google. Look at them learn! Hopefully if it ever happens again, it will be something less unpleasant to learn about.
is this the first time the girls have educated you, charlie?
Well, tech they could have just learned about it from the lil paper inside their box of tampons. Which is prob like harcore literature for them haha
haha! You’re probably right, it is hardcore literature for them.
Yeah, the internet is a dangerous place, I felt the same way when I googled Santorum.
what is it i’m scared to look it up
Me too. I’m not going to. I will remain naive! (hooray?)
Eww! Why is it that I have to google everything?!?!?
Oh dear god!!! Poor Senator Santorum…
….Santorum…..it seemed like such a nice word…blech!
Ohhh God. Why did I look that up….
Can someone please explain what santorum is? I’m to scared to google it.
Oh dear God that was awful. The world has just opened up to me.
Oh god. I think curiosity just nauseated the cat.
Good job spreading Santorum, Ana.
EW. EW. EW. I googled it- now I regret it. :c
lol this reminded me of when my parents got married…..I guess one day my Dad was reading things while in the bathroom, and read the tampon box. After reading about TSS he forbade my Mom from ever using them again! Then she forbade me when I was older. I never listened but for some reason this post made me smile thinking about that.
haha that’s awesome.
Now you know, Charlie. Don’t google everything you hear. Some things are better left in their apt.
Acrobats are always doing good turns.
Hi Punmaster!! Haven’t seen you around in quite a while :)
Agh! I’m on the same cycle as these girls!
oh my…. I didn’t even think of that until now…. so am I… ugh. >/
Woaahh me too.
p.s. first time I have ever commented on this site =)
So many questions. How did they even here about TSS and what made her think she even had it? If it is a rash though, she should still have that checked out.
this is probably more information then you need to know but on the inside of the tampon box there’s a piece of paper telling you what to do if you think you have tss
On all tampon boxes, it gives a warning of TSS, which I assume is how they found out about it. It is actually very severe, and can be life-threatening.
learning about girl bodily function-related stuff always seems to terrify guys.
Its a VERY “frightening” subject. :P
I know, right?
Compared from the various VD’s they could have obtained, I’d say that TSS is a fairly mild one.
This is definitely one of the funniest posts.
I meant “compared with”…I’ll just blame autocorrect…everybody else does…damn you autocorrect!
Why did I google it, too? Mine eyes!
Also, this was uploaded on my birthday. :D
I remember learning about that in middle school health class… It’s always a bit awkward when they have those type of lectures… Anyway, this is my first post. You rock, Charlie!
First off, Ewwwwwwww! Second….I sadly am on the same cycle as these girls too…./:
When I read that is it bad that when I read this I heard my best friends voice?? Be would freak out to if he had googled it
Wait which friend Cory or hunter?
You’re really annoying. Every time I see one of your posts it makes me want to say, ‘Cool story bro! Tell it again!’ in the most sarcastic voice I could muster up.
you don’t have to be a douche about it
Bahaha. Douche is the best you can do? Go back to the 5th grade.
vos adepto a vita stupidi parum Troglodytarum
Sooo… You’re calling me something along the lines of ‘stupid caveman’ in Italian? What the hell??
that was really close, but no i called you a troll and it’s Latin big difference.
Try not to feed the trolls, they’ll move in and start smelling up the place.
Mhmm it doesn’t really make a difference in latin. I’d like to say that you’re equally as troll-like as I am, but physically I’m like a freaking unicorn.
First off, ugghuhujhnuhuhuhuuhuhu. Secondly, keep it to yourself and get to a hospital ASAP.
TSS is not something to eww at. My little sister just had a case of it. She was nearly unable to walk due to weakness, had a fever of 105F, had to be taken by helicopter to a bigger hospital, and spent a few days in the ICU. So ladies, remember to change your tampons regularly.
Exactly what I was thinking. I mean I understand the immediate “yuck” reflex, particularly with the males, but honestly. It’s a disease just like any other icky disease, and actually a rather serious one at that. Speaking of, based on the tone of your comment I’m assuming your sister made it through okay; I’m very glad to hear it. I hope everything’s just fine again now :)
Even though I am a male, I looked it up and was totally fine with what I read. I didn’t think it was disgusting at all, although I got a list of potential causes in alphabetical order, so tampon use was low on the list. Maybe being married also changes things. It is certainly not the worst disease/disorder I have seen.
I looked it up. . . Good to know what to look for :P and I’d much rather google that than blue waffles o.O gross >.<
DO NOT google blue waffles! there is no mind bleach for that one.
Just when I thought I had burried that particular memory :(
sorry guys D: this post made me google THAT for the first time. I almost pissed myself from fear D’:
Just when I thought that memory was gone forever…. Thx…. -3-
Oops! Definitely not one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen online. . . Wont even go there this time >.<
I won’t so… Youre welcome;D
She did make it through and is just fine now. Thanks Cassie.
How many people have googled this?
I would just like to report that TSS is now trending in the Google search polls. Well done, Charlie!
Well, that’s just dandy.
I’d rather not look it up. Ignorance is bliss sometimes, and I don’t want to ruin how cool “Toxic Shock” sounds to me.
hahahahahahaha!!! But isn’t ignorance not bliss? Just ignorance X)
I also never thought of it that way, that sounds so cool now that you pointed it out :D
Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I feel obligated:
My friend died of TSS last summer. It’s serious shit and can start in just two hours of using a tampon. Every young woman should be fully informed. For more information, visit you-are-loved.org
You knew Amy?! Thanks for putting up her site. I never met her but I know Sara.
Yeah, I’ve been friends with their family since high school. Small world.
I don’t get it… I googled it and it didn’t bother me. Then again, neither did 2 girls 1 cup or the blue waffle thing. Seeing the after affects of two surgeries does strengthen the stomach I guess :D
OH GOD!!!!!! My friend showed me 2 girls 1 cup today, I almost threw up o.O I don’t know how that didn’t bother you!!!!! Are you a superhero or something?! :D
How do those things NOT bother you? Where can I get this amazing superpower?
There are two parts of my brain working here… One part says what is this? Look it up! And then there is the other part that says “Don’t do it you dumb bastard…”
Well after reading a few comments I’m pretty sure I’ve figured out what it is… I guess you can say that is gross, but try working in a hospital for any measurable length of time. Especially in the hospice area. Old people just don’t care man…
I just asked my older sister… Its kinda gross & another reason I dont plan on using tampons….
i don’t get why that’s so gross. because it can result from tampon use? come on… it’s actually a serious disease, and as far as disgusting things related to the genitals go, it’s incredibly tame. grow up!
Because I’m too scared to google it, someone please tell me in the least disgusting way what TSS is.
I’ve been out of town for three weeks, and it’s great to catch up on nearly a month’s worth of GAM. I find it a very productive way to prepare for college… My roommate might end up one!
Its a disease you can get from leaving a tampon in too long, Luna. Yeah, its seriously not that gross, boys. However, you can die from that…. she should probably get that checked out.
Charlie, I tune in to this site because it makes me giggle…but this didn’t, my best friend died 2 years ago frm toxic shock syndrom. Whether your neighbor has it or not is a non-issue, because a fatal disease should not be used to entertain your masses of fans. Like you said…they say many other funny things…and you used the one that includes a disease that plagues thousands of women and kills hundreds? I feel like youre making fun of it. I’m sorry but I can’t support a site that pokes fun at fatal diseases.
I’m sorry your friend died but I really don’t think he was “poking fun” at tss. And besides, once you google something who knows what sick things pop up. Especially if you’re a guy and googled that.
He wasn’t poking fun at the disease. I am sorry for your friend, but honestly your friend has nothing to do with this site. Charlie posted what he always posts- something one of the girls above him said. How would he have known about your friend? Should he just censor everything so that no one ever gets offended? Then there wouldn’t be a DGAM site.
& that would torture EVERYONE…
Wtg!!! You have an opinion!! So do I!!! You think I don’t realize that this site it over dgam not tss… uh derrrr….no ish sherlock. And how are you 2 to know what he is doing?? Are you charlie? I think not! And its not about my friend or the disease in general. Its like making fun of cancer or spine abifida. Just tasteless. And I don’t think he should censor himself. But I think he should be more courteous to his fans and their views. That’s just pleasing the masses.and this mass wasn’t pleased. And I was voicing that to CHARLIE, not for the useless view of others. I posted in his comment section because I know he sees it and that seems the only way to give MY opinion to him. Sorry MY view did not please you, but honestly I could care less.
“No ish sherlock”? “how are you 2 know”? Why are we typing like third graders? U NO SPEEK ENGRISH? U MAD BRO? Honestly, if you didn’t seem like a whiny child- whose probably lying about having a dead friend for attention on this site- I might agree with you. But Charlie can post whatever the hell he wants. And I can comment on what I want.
And yes, I do realize this site is about DGAM, not TSS. Do you? Because you seem to be the one having a fit. I on the other hand, am sitting here laughing heartily at how bothered you are. Cold? Yes I am. I am a frigid bitch.
KimeeFace=my new hero:) thanks for stopping the whining!
