My husband and I are both in an Internet business, but he’s the one who truly lives, eats and breathes computers.

I finally realized how bad it had gotten when I was scratching his back one day.

"No, not there," he directed. "Scroll down."

Her hubs, in the midst of a spasm

Of itching, says, "Lower — that has 'em! "

I hope she's controlling

The depth of her scrolling,

Or else she'll be scratching a chasm.  :O :ermm: :angel: :) :D

Lol, T(h)ink - rub or scratch gently:  :O:P:ermm: - :):D:D

When the skin is badly itching,

like a lot of needles stitching,

causing ache and nervous twitching:

scratching helps far more than bitching -

all the more if "babe" is "scrolling",

with the rubbing gently strolling

to reduce the stinges' trolling -

so, hub's* wheels can go on rolling.

Marianne, you too, oh it is just BRILLIANT!

Marianne TheOtherTink

Lol, thank you, Virginia.



Marianne, after O'Tink's masterful response to your Q, I just have nothing to add... :D  <3

Marianne Virginia

Lol, Virginia, enjoy! :):angel::D:D



No way to beat Tink's and Marianne's answers! Every time I try to make a rhyme, too many cuss words come out, so I keep them to myself! :D :D :D

The guy in the article below seems to think English cuss words had more to do with the politics of the Norman Conquest than anything else, but I don't think he's right. It's not polite to use the equivalent words in other countries or languages either.  :angel: :D


But the following is more to the point:  :D :D :D

"...but by Rabelais' beard she will throw several fits, if you speak of them roundly as good honest...---"

Oh what wonderful lyrics here, Other Tink!

...and I loved the Psy Today article...the etymology of obscenities? Well I DO know at least one gesture considered obscene in the USA, but the parallel in Europe and South America is apparently not so much...and it's The Famous BIRD!

Here is the parallel, in Europe and South America it's the FIGA, means the same thing as The Bird, but I have read it's not considered obscene. Even Dante mentioned "the figging sign"...look closely, the thumb tucked between index and middle fingers? Whew! (Now if we only knew how ours came to be called "bird"...)

Lol, Virginia, talking about birds: T(h)ink might remember something in German.


Virginia Rooster

O'Tink, those are two fascinating links! Amazing the term "flip the bird" did not come into usage until the 1960's...and the erotic poem from WWII (at least back to then) is wonderful!

One of the verses about "plowing the field," I remember seeing something like that in a translation of a very ancient scripture from Old Europe in the time of the mother goddesses. The ancient goddess was saying to her prospective paramour, "Plow my field, O Dumuzi, plow my field" ... (or something like that). This of course from an Earth-centered era in which the sexual act was honored as a sacred act...

TheOtherTink Rooster

Marianne, I'm shocked, SHOCKED!  :O :blush: :blush: :ermm: :angel: :) :D

Fortunately, to 'bird' someone is not (yet) a verb in English.  :P

TheOtherTink Rooster

Yes, Virginia, the 'flip' form is relatively recent.  I think the old way of giving someone the finger was to pump one's fist upwards with the middle finger already extended.  Maybe a more modern form is to raise a completely clenched fist and then flip the middle finger up.

I have observed both, but have never used either, so I am not an expert on the matter. 

:O :blush: :ermm: :angel: :) :D

Virginia Rooster

O'Tink, your information draws a bit of a gasp from me...and that is because it STILL seems so strange to be living in a culture where the act of coitus is not a loving act always, but instead aggression and rage.

TheOtherTink Rooster

Yes, Virginia, I have wondered about that too, especially since it also exists in language... eff this, eff that, eff you, WTF, effing ... (fill in the blank), or just plain f— :(

Marianne Rooster

Oh T(h)ink, ..... giggle, giggle, giggle - what a good morning laugh!


Virginia Rooster

Well Marianne's mention of good morning laugh, so I went to my Geneva clock...10:40 PM PST in the Pacific Northwest, and it's 7:40 AM in Geneva! (Don't know why I get so tickled over comparing our time zones...)

Marianne Rooster

Lol, Virginia, you are correct; the time difference is 9 hours; it is (waiting for the "beep") half past nine (a.m.) here, and it must be half past midnight on your side.

I am used to dealing with the time differences - lol.


Oops, I took a break, it is a quarter to 10.
