Ask Cody: Volume Three by Cody McGraw

For some reason people have always asked me for advice. Be it on relationships, food choices or which Power Ranger is coolest, I’ve been asked it all. Lately I’ve been thinking I’m not being fair to the rest of the world if I don’t open up my advice to everyone. You see, I’m a very honest person. I’m going to tell you exactly what I’m thinking and not spare your feelings at all. It’s one of the many things that make me me and people tend to respect that.

So I made the choice to help people. That’s right. I took on a few questions over Twitter and email and compiled them for everyone to read. This is MY advice column and I hope to help you with anything you’re having issues with. Seriously, anything. But don’t go complaining if I say something you don’t want to hear. If you looking for someone to candy coat your bullshit then you're humping the wrong leg. 

Dear Cody,

Why are men such jerks? Is it because their genitals hang out?

Inverted penis

Dear Inverted Penis,

Have you ever thought that maybe it’s you? Maybe people don’t want to be nice to you because you’re sort of an unpleasant bitch and gave your uterus a really off-putting nickname. Just a thought.

Dear Cody,

Why do all my friends do cocaine?

Fed Up Straight Edge

Dear Fed Up Straight Edge,

Funny you asked because I’ve often wondered the same. My rationalization is that young people today think they are some sort of ‘80s Wall Street douchebag. Really, guys? Putting something up your nose is appealing? Sounds more like a new sex trend. Either way I REALLY wouldn’t want to try either or see it demonstrated by Phyllis Diller.

Dear Cody,

My girlfriends and I have been on a series of dates recently in which the person is either dating someone or being completely disingenuous. It’s pretty frustrating and I was hoping you could help steer us in the right direction in the way only you can.

Big Hearted Beautiful Doormat

Dear Big Hearted Beautiful Doormat,

You must be new to this column because all my loyal readers already know everyone is an asshole. People today have no idea what’s in front of them and are instead looking past you to see which bar skank is next. Yeah he might be making out with you but he is already scanning the room looking for his next tongue bath. My advice to you would be to give these assholes a taste of their own medicine. After each kiss punch him in the face and make out with the next guy and if he doesn’t like it then maybe he should get his attention span checked/balls removed until he learns to treat you like the self-proclaimed big hearted girl you are. Don’t go gay, either. Lesbian drama is the WORST.
