Stan liked to fill his bath, fine-tune the ratio of hot to cold so that he could barely stand the heat of it, and then slowly descend his dangling testes into the scalding water. He would then submerge the rest of his body, inch by inch, minute by minute. Yep; once in a while, Stan liked to stew. Stan liked to share his stew this meant ladling out generous helpings of the stuff into Japanese style (but made in Hong Kong) bowls, and then bringing them into the kitchen to serve to people (e.g. his grandmother). Also, Stan would devilishly tell his grandmother that the soup was Japanese. It was called Konichiwa soup. He put Ramon noodles in it to make it believable.

01/29/2004 Will Disney: So, wait, was his name Stan or Stew?
01/29/2004 Will Disney (4): I'll give it four stars. Why? "Stan liked to stew" and the name of the soup itself.
01/29/2004 Jimson S. Sorghum (3): I think the first line should have been the one that Will pointed to. The current one is long and kind of impossible. Did he straddle the tub and hover above before finally lowering his testes? There's also a lot of superfluous language that doesn't add to the humor. I think the idea is pretty good, though. It seems there must be a better way to execute it. The noodles are a nice touch.
01/29/2004 qualcomm (2): this line: "Japanese style (but made in Hong Kong) bowls" i hate so much. it is unfunny. i told you assholes i don't like homo.
01/29/2004 Ewan Snow: Didn't "do it" for me. Also found the Japan/Hong Kong aside infuriating. I do, however, like it when dangling testes meet scalding water. But that's neither here nor there.
01/29/2004 Joe Frankenstone (3): Who's Ramon?
01/29/2004 senator (3): I liked where it was going. Then I think the punchline came too soon (no pun intended). I do like to say Konichiwa, over and over again to myself (seriously).
01/29/2004 scoop (3): I agree with senator. I like how it starts, but I think it shouldve ended earlier. It explains more than it has to.
01/30/2004 Mr. Pony: (FOR EXAMPLE: Konnichiwa means "good afternoon". Konbanwa means "good evening" The noodles are properly romanized as "Ramen". Ra-Me-N. The Japanese bath is called a "Furo", or "O-Furo" if it contains honor. No kidding.)
01/30/2004 Benny Maniacs: would it help if Stan was a chink?
