In Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs (which was the last novel in America to be the subject of an obscenity trial before being published in 1962) we meet a "bull dyke" who can "cave in a lead pipe" with her vaginal grip. Presumably she had done her kegel's exercises.

Certainly makes Mr Bloom "asquat on the cuckstool" seem rather tame.

You have not made a case.

"You have not noticed it."

I think we have a very different idea of what qualifies as a case. But you may put it down to my dim-wittedness if you prefer.

No. We disagree only on how much need be said, sometimes.

And sometimes there is a fine line between being elliptical and obfuscatory.

Ullrich, were you asking me for a citation of the article I had read. Because, if so, it's long gone. Sorry, I just remember it being in a minor sort of folklore journal.

besides, i don't think i want to read such a vulgar joke here. there are plenty of x rated sites that specialize in vulgar material.(my son ran an X-rated web page, and his, and others are not unknown to me)

i have no problem with adult subjects. i don't think we need to refrain from all mention of breasts or penises or other body parts (and there really has never been any effort to censor -except self regulation--but i don't think retelling a vulgar joke (publicly) will add anything to topic. Do you?

Occationally (and i too have been guilty of it occationally) we have gotten out of hand, and the subject matter has become, well BLUE. but as a general rule, we refain. we certainly don't INVITE people to post vulgar jokes.

a quick quip--that makes you laugh befor you blush.. that's one thing, but HEY, tell the joke here... well its generally not done.
If anyone thinks this general policy is wrong, they are welcome to correct my assumptions and make some of their own!
