Pro-Bush Liberals

Apparently the political spectrum is more complicated than originally thought.  Here's an article from the left-leaning New Republic to illustrate this. 

Will the National Review come out with an anti-bush position?  Like Daddy Ward, being conservatives, they tend to be hard on the Beav and prefer shorter hair.

More Than One Blue Swim Suit

Here's a little slightly embarrassing moment from my misspent youth.
A group of us were doing Spring Break down on the Gulf Coast near Panama City, and we were swimming near darkness in deep water, cavorting around.  Just on a lark I decided to give my boyfriend a little squeeze, so I gave him one after sneaking up on him underwater from behind.  No problem, I thought, despite my approach from behind and underwater: he's the one wearing the blue swim suit.   This was intended as a hint of what could occur later on tonight.

My total bad!  I thought it was my boyfriend that I gave this little squeeze to, but it was someone else.

More to the point, he was not wearing an athletic supporter.

The other guy gave me sly looks for the rest of the evening.
But, I figure, what harm was done?

Really, Really Odd Book Titles

I confess that I'm a sucker for odd book titles.

There's a sense of wonder: why did someone bother; but another side of me says that I should be open to new experiences.  Sometimes that can be a good thing.

It raises existential questions:  Should a person knit a sweater out of dog hair?  Why would farting be good?  What sort of crafts might be made out of pantyhose?

Are there delicious recipes that might be made from roadkill?  Am I missing something from my life?

There's a book on Gay Bulgaria.  Must be a fascinating read if I return to Varna or Plovdiv.

There is even a book entitled The Romance of Proctology.  Fascinating reading for bum doctors.

I did not see these on the list; but there are book titles like Father Christmas Needs to Wee and Bondage for Beginners.  I guess the latter one is illustrated.

Whore Houses in Tennessee

Yes, Tennessee has odd laws; including the "proud bitch" statute occasionally encountered in internet summaries of dubious legislation.  However, the "proud bitches" in this case refer to the four-legged rather than the two-legged variety.  Nancy Pelosi need not worry should she choose to visit Memphis.

But, one common old saw is that there is a law in Tennessee that states that no more than eight (some sources say four) adult women can live in the same house, as that would legally define it as a brothel.  This is often used as an example of the backwardness of the residents of the Volunteer State.

No, Charlie.

There's no such law.  Anyway, what defines a brothel is what takes place inside it, not it being inhabited by females.

If such a law existed, there could be no sorority houses.

And, under the stricter form of this supposed "law," the foreign residence of the Chili Dog Girls in Murfreesboro would meet that criterion.  Now I know that some errant males stayed from time to time, but nothing commercial was going on.

Anyway, as long as I'm on the topic of whorehouses in Tennessee, let me show you a picture of the second-best one:
