Poor man indeed. Imagine coming home to an atmosphere that anaesthetic. The very thought of it is enough to drive one to drink.

re: point 3 - I had no idea they were so open about the whole "men like a bit of lesbian peep-show" thing.

*Oh, Doreen, would you be a dear and pop round at half-five for some kiss-kiss? And do be sure to wear those red garters we picked up from Old Tom's shop the other day. Ta*

falsie: good thing you seem to have at least eight friends with well-stocked bars then. and no woman would question you either, if you stayed out all night.

sur: you're doing well, being all oppressed and asking for permission. :D

??!: now i have to go read point 3 again to see where lesbian peep shows come into this.

??!: You know, I had exactly the same reaction to point 3, then resisted the urge to make the obvious jokes.

I had exactly the same reaction to point 3
What to say? One is humbled to be on your wavelength. heh.

Space Bar said...

It's from 1955. Not *that* long ago. Wonder what kids will find quaint, amusing or offensive in 2063. (My pet fear? "They hated Dubya in 2008! How stupid of them!!")

Uh oh. Now I know where I went wrong. I did not know my place.

As always, snopes.com is informative.

rahul: interesting! i didn't know that. but as the article itself says, just because it's proved to be an urban legend, it doesn't mean that things weren't at least somewhat that way in the '50s.

heck, they're that way here even now!
