I was going to save this for a Wednesday, but 1.) it's not a joke and 2.) I'm still laughing about it.
I got to head over to Yellow Jacket country this last month. While over in South Dakota I learned about a problem that the South Dakota legislature via the Department of Public Safety decided to correct by using a state wide multimedia campaign.
The campaign was designed to help South Dakotans deal with a real and serious problem that is gripping the state. Like any good ad campaign they had some slogans:
#4 "Keep calm and don't jerk"
#3 "Nobody likes a jerker"
#2 "Think before you jerk"
#1 "Don't Jerk and Drive"
The ads were obviously designed to deal with the problem over overcorrecting on icy roads. Fortunately they yanked the ad campaign before it confused people involved in this other road related epidemic:
Survey: Fair amount of sex while driving among young S.D. motorists
University of South Dakota survey finds many students distracted while behind the wheel
When it comes to sex drive, at least among some young people in South Dakota, there’s a fair amount of sex while driving going on.
From the state that brought you — and then took away — the “Don’t Jerk and Drive” safety campaign comes a survey that revealed that nearly a third of men attending the University of South Dakota have had sex while driving, as have nearly 10 percent of women at the school in Vermillion.Go ahead and reread that last line one more time. Got it. Good. Now do the math. 1/3 of the guys have had sex while driving but only 10% of the girls have. Either that means that...well we wont go into what that means. I have it on good authority that the South Dakota Department of Public Safety has a sheep survey that is due back in at the end of February. We'll have more on this story as it develops.
