David Price says: “Ladies . . . let ur man drive!”

Nov 26, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

David Price has one Cy Young and multiple instances of Twitter failure. Here’s his latest:

I guess the sentiment of wanting us all to be safe is laudable. But, um, yeah, I hope if there is a Mrs. Price — be it his wife or his mother — she doesn’t see this.

UPDATE: Jeremy Guthrie for the win:

    I can’t believe that this turned into a bunch of comments about sexism, rapists and driving statistics. Its a joke people, get a sense of humor.

      I don’t think Price was joking. But we are sure having fun with it.

        You know PMS interferes with magnets. The compass is WRONG!

        ‘philiac, it’s: “You know PMS interferes with magnets. The compass is WRONG, bitch!”

        Ladies. You’re doing it wrong (as usual). Here’s how it goes, New Millennia Edition:

        “Dear, the nice lady on the GPS says that’s the road we should take. I know you think its a boat ramp, but you’re not a GPS satellite, now are you? Why you can’t open a pickle jar on your own! So, don’t worry your pretty little head about that water. I’m sure My Girl Friday here (pats GPS) will get us there. She has such a sexy sweet voice, doesn’t she? Not like you. You sound like your mother.”

      • historiophiliac - Nov 26, 2013 at 7:08 PM

        I will only believe that GPS person when it gives directions like: “Go down the road aways and take the right before the road jags. If you get to the Dairy Queen, you’ve gone too far.”

      • indaburg - Nov 26, 2013 at 7:49 PM

        The GPS is a retard. She’s probably blonde.

      Do you want me to recount some “jokes” about black people or Italians or the Jewish or Hispanics or Asians or the Polish from when I was a kid? I remember my dad and Uncles thinking they were pretty funny, maybe you would enjoy them.

      • bh192012 - Nov 26, 2013 at 6:26 PM

        Technically yes, I want you to recount some “jokes.” Even when they’re sexist, racist make fun of disabled people, insensitive, crude, crass, below the belt etc. they can still be funny.

        Better yet, if it makes you squirm to do that, maybe instead you can find some insensitive jokes about white American males?

      • historiophiliac - Nov 26, 2013 at 7:24 PM

        I have an old dude joke, if you need it.

      • indaburg - Nov 26, 2013 at 8:04 PM

        Actually, ‘lions, some of those jokes are funny. And I say that as a beleaguered minority. Doubly so–colored and female. I could have been gay or bi and gone for the trifecta, but no such luck. Anyhow, those jokes are told by a person of said group. Chris Rock can make n*gger jokes. I can’t. Greg Giraldo can make Latino jokes. Silverman can make female jokes. They’re funny. It’s the right of inclusivity.

      • paperlions - Nov 26, 2013 at 8:48 PM

        True enough. Of course, my relatives are pretty much German/French/English/Irish and the reasons for the jokes were not for humor or inclusivity….and I think intent is important, it is always important…heck intent is why certain words/jokes become toxic in the first place.

        To their credit, my older relatives (now in their 60s and 70s) have shown some growth, but that growth is 100% related to “new relatives”. In part from cousins that have married someone of Asian or Latin American descent….but most of the “growth” has actually been with respect to attitudes about sexuality due to “out” gay people in the family…and everyone realizing that they are just people that want the same things as everyone else and they didn’t change be being outwardly gay. Unlike ethnicity, the fact that you can suddenly find out your son/daughter is gay (whereas you generally can’t suddenly find out they are black/asian/middle eastern/latin) can really change those attitudes and sensibilities quickly and for the better.

        Image if that could happen though. Your son is white/black and then one day: poof he’s black/white! That would make for one hell of an impression.

      • paperlions - Nov 27, 2013 at 9:19 AM

        Oh geez. That sounds like a fine comedy skit. I suppose in some parts of the country that would lead to a bunch of “Race Rehab Centers” being opened where they try to “fix you”.

    • Bill Parker - Nov 26, 2013 at 3:23 PM

      I mean, it’s a sexist joke (thus the comments about sexism), based on a sexist and baseless but nonetheless pervasive stereotype (thus the driving statistics)…what’s the hard-to-believe part?

    • butchhuskey - Nov 26, 2013 at 3:26 PM

      Although I’m not morally outraged by Mr. Price’s tweet, it was a dumb thing to say and easy to ridicule.

  2. 18thstreet - Nov 26, 2013 at 3:18 PM

    Nice grammar, too. Vanderbilt College, everyone!

    • km9000 - Nov 26, 2013 at 4:15 PM

      Well, lack of punctuation is more of a problem. But he at least limits his exclamation points to one per sentence.

      And no hashtag? #antiERA?

  3. pjmitch - Nov 26, 2013 at 3:22 PM

    I think it’s obvious that Mr. Price has a very limited knowledge and experience of what woman find funny.

  4. jfk69 - Nov 26, 2013 at 3:27 PM

    I will let her drive. If I don’t. She will drive me crazy…Sorry David

    Please don’t click on my previous post. It didn’t link to what it was supposed to.

    And What, exactly was wrong with what he said?

    • indaburg - Nov 26, 2013 at 8:13 PM

      In case you’re serious, statistics prove that women are safer drivers than men. That’s the number one reason why insurance rates across all age brackets are lower for women than men. We’re also smart enough to know if weather conditions are very poor, you don’t drive. You stay home. It’s not worth risking your life.

      • bdickey33 - Nov 27, 2013 at 1:42 PM

        Basically women are probably less likely to think, “Oh yeah! I got this” in a snowstorm when slow car is in front of you.

    Buckle up and drink responsibly. No texting while driving.
