We do

Oh, and what it takes to get hit full frontal by the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbra_Streisand_effect.

Great fun imagining their faces!

Certainly you and xyzzy are aware of the selection bias in this forum? We're all smart and have too much time.
Unless you ban everyone from posting, you cannot guarantee 100% family friendliness.
Now, be honest, do you really think the censors had a fighting chance against Mae West?
Think of all the fun she could have had with paragraph-breaks!

I've got a feeling in my water that Ernst's tender touch might be appropriate ATM.

Methinks we should confine our subtle obscenities to the music thread
where most folk fear to tread.

BTW I may be a veteran on this site by now (Baptized by Mally
RIP) but... I forgotten what I was going to say now.

I'd go for Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity.

I named my first son Mark Angwin Eddy. My good schoolteacher friend
thought about the initials and his verdict was that it would be OK
unless he went around saying things like
"Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?"

Speaking of family friendliness...

Hey kids,

Pretty awful, huh?

P.S. Don't do drugs.

Deal!

It's your fault I got in trouble with the local authorities (again), so I do hope you have a cunning plan to get me out.

He delivered a serious lecture on drugs sometime in the

the only hard drug worth taking was Cocain.

Kids,

What davieddy wants to tell you, is that he's Brahms and will post a question about vintage erotica in a thread for endocrinology, because his last post was about tables designed in the 1950's.

P.S. Don't drink and drive.

Kids,

As part of my newly regained family friendliness it is my duty to inform you that you must never, ever leave the 'l' out of the word public. Because if you do, you are referring to something very naughty, but you will not be told why it is naughty until you are at least 37.

Unfortunately this is a grave error and now the big bad government will take away all the pocket money from all the members in this forum, unless we can find a liberal moderator with a history of reckless tolerance of extreme profanity in pubic places, on whom we can blame the permanent emotional scarring of the entire future generation.

P.S. Don't talk to strangers.

The other subtlety about Cockney rhyming slang I failed to tell you
about was that some of them are known by the first word and others aren't.

Stockhausen, now you tell me. I'm beginning to suspect that Cockney rhyming slang totally Sweet'N Lows = blows inertia of mass = ass, because it appears that the originators were bedside table = unable to cobra and asp = grasp the here kitty, kitty = necessity of LarryBird = upward -compatibility.

Our "conversation" if you want to call it that is getting me Eight Miles High.
Need to calm down a bit. My ex wife was half Cypriot. I guess you will
figure out why I think "Velvet Undergroud" is my all time favourite
band name.
