Have You Pulled a PK?

My friend Kevin - and we're gonna go ahead and change his name to Speed Racer, so as to avoid any Kevin Confusion - told me that he and Mrs. Speed Racer had to go to a baby shower, and that he was not looking forward to it.

He confessed to me that he intended to pack a flask, reminiscent of THIS blog entry, if you're a new beholder of my dubious brilliance.

And then I got to thinkin. . .

(insert ominous music)

When you hear someone's name and it's usually associated with a specific action, that person and that action are kinda synonymous, ya know what I mean?

For example, everyone knows what it means to pull a Monica Lewinsky, right? Or to pull a Lorena Bobbitt? Or a Tonya Harding?

Heh, remember the time I almost pulled a Tara Reid with Mr. McFeely?

Ok, my boob didn't actually fall out, but my bra strap made an untimely appearance which was captured by the Paparazzi. I just thought it would be funny to have Tara Reid and Mr. McFeely in the same sentence.

If you heard someone say "Oh my God, I just pulled a TOTAL Penny Karma!" what would be your immediate assumption?

That the person had:

- Packed a flask in order to endure an event which would surely be, at best, unpleasant?

- Launched into a profanity-laced tirade, infuckingventing new fucking swear words in the process?

- Taken an amusing picture with a cell phone camera, especially one of a sign prohibiting the use of cell phones?

- Become something they swore they'd never become, such as a minivan-driving soccer mom?

What does it mean to Pull a PK?

I'd love to know what you think, as long as you don't say like "act like a total twat" or something.

If I were to 'pull a PK', I'd be putting on my power panties, (wo)manning up, and telling it like it is - all the while being wildly entertaining.
Pulling a PK is empowering yourself, and saying 'it's okay to be who I am'. No holds barred.

Dude, my verification word is grovel. That doesn't bode well.

I'd vote for option two, the tirade - the fabulous and never-not-shocking presentation of an opinion that I adore so much. I think anyone who has that kind of commentary running in their heads is totally pulling a PK. :D Rawk.

Speed Racer said...

So do I get 2 votes since I'm the inspiration for this little contest?

I vote for taking a flask,

and for taking inappropriate pictures.

And if you're really good, you can do both!

I actually already use this term in my daily life since I keep my dh informed about all things Karma. Around here to be "PKed" means "to be smacked in the face with some kind of extreme irony" and to "pull a PK" means "to completely eviscerate someone verbally at a place and time that they will never find out about."

Speed - I was going to go back and post that picture! It was genius!

"to be smacked in the [fuckin] face with some kind of extreme [fuckin] irony"

Added my own little spin. :)

A PK to me is finding a kick ass deal on beer anyplace I look.

I'd vote for using 9 sticks of butter in a loving gesture to my heart-health-challenged monster FIL.

putting on power panties - or two pairs of panties for double the power

Trillian42 said...

Hmm... sending random cellphone pictures to someone just because it made you think of them? :D

Honestly, though, I'm not sure I could narrow it down to one thing. I like the power panties suggestion, though. :D

After seeing that video of your badass self rapping along to the stereo in your van, I will always think of you when I'm driving down the road, singing profane songs to myself in the car.

Rip said...

Clearly, pulling out one's cell phone to take pictures of odd things found while shopping could certainly be defined as a PK moment. Wasn't there a pic of a "d*ick in a box" costume a while back?

Since I am one of the truly privileged ones who actually gets to hang out with you in person, I would have to add that for me, if I start becoming ubercompetitive in ANYTHING, I would be Pulling a PK.

I thought pulling a PK involved flashing your boobs? HOw did this get called into question?

Kashmir Knitter said...

Okay, go read my blog, I'm going to tell on myself (with embarrassing photos) that I totally pulled a PK.

SiressYorkie said...

I think anytime I put on a bra that makes my tits look thoroughly irresistable, that'll be a PK.

Or maybe, when I stand up to the Outlaws, I'll be thinking, "I'm gonna go all PK on your asses..."

Or maybe we can say, "Then I opened up a can of PK and totally took charge..."

(would the PK come in handy-sized packets for easy travel? because I have that whole customs thing to deal with when I visit...)

Cary said...

I"ll pull your PK if you pull mine first.

Rachel said...

I'm going with the boob flashing, especially if the person pulling the PK was standing under a highway sign with the same designation as their cup size.
