A Wee Bit of Truth:
I was once told that with one Irishman you get a revolution, and with two Jews a democracy. I decided I wanted to marry one of the Jews. I figured the lady and I could start a family that might become a Democratic Revolution...
Sadly, she fled Tijuana, destination unknown.
At a social level where an environment or a bubble of political correctness is paramount it can exist in places by thin veneer, camouflaging sexism, anti-gay sentiment, working class contempt, racism. Where political correctness doesn’t often exist socio-cultural camouflage is rare: Where racism, anti-gay sentiment, sexism, class contempt might exist, it often does so without dishonesty; plain, jagged, brutal.
Not likely true:
A long time ago, when my ex-girlfriend and I used to walk around naked, I stepped onto a scale out on the lanai to weigh myself.
My Ex checked the results. “Huh? How’d you do that?" she asked, "You lost 8 pounds in an hour.”
I smiled with honest anticipation, asked her to grab my hummerhonger -- she did. And,
as a mystical-magical woman might; she instantly built a full-size woody. I stepped back onto the scale and said, “This is how” --
I was 8 pounds heavier.
The lady checked the scale. “Huh?” she smiled as a mystical-magical woman might.
An hour later, dwindled, I was 8 pounds lighter, again.
