In Anticant’s absence, Ben Trovato has been diligently scouring cyberspace for titbits worthy of reproduction in the Burrow. Here is his latest find: 

An elderly gentleman who is less potent than he was in his youth consults his doctor, who after trying many unsuccessful remedies refers him to an African Witch Doctor.

Saying 'I can cure this', the Witch Doctor throws a white powder into a flame, and there is a flash followed by billowing blue smoke. ‘This is powerful healing, but you can only use it once a year’, the African explains. ‘All you have to do is say '123,' and it shall rise for as long as you wish!'

The patient asks, 'What happens when it's over, and I don't want to continue?' The Witch Doctor replies, 'When your partner can take no more sex and is completely satisfied, all she has to say is '1234', and it will then go down. But be warned, your potency will not return again for another year…'

The old gent rushes home, anxious to try out his new powers. That night he showers, shaves, and smothers himself in expensive perfumes. He slides into bed, cuddles up to his wife, says '123', and suddenly he has the most gigantic erection, just as the Witch Doctor promised. His wife turns over and asks, 'What did you say '123' for?'

The Beadle and Mrs Malaprop have asked Ben to confirm that this tale bears no relation to any denizens of the Burrow.

It is clear that the hols have given our ole Antipostmodernirony a new lease of the under-the-blankets life.

Sexist comments now we see.
Be Jesus what next?

Welcome home Anti-the-still-sprightly-subterfuge.

So it is true that Anticant is into oral culture (123four) rather than book culture where the word has meaning.
I agree with the Zola comment. Anticant is postmodernity in denial.

just think what would have happened if she had said '4,5,6' in return.

4,5,6 do the twist

Ooops. Wrong website.

'Ooops. Wrong website.'
Wrong, right website.

Merkin said...

Sorry, Anti.
You know your patrons as does any publican.
Sometimes you have to put up with it.
Since the funeral, I have had to say the same thing to more than one publican.
Things will balance.

I hereby inform you that I have engaged SueGrabbitandRun to keep a watching brief on the scandalous goings on in this den of thieves.

A den of drunkenness and [in Dame Barbara's absence] iniquity the Burrow may be; a den of thieves it is NOT!

Libel writs are being issued immediately on our behalf by Messrs. Wink, Nod, and Tongueincheek.

Does AntiKantian confirm that this "tail bears no relation"?
Rumour has it that the Beadle has been involved in "special holiday weekends in Devon". Just rumours.
The neighbours were not amused.
But the beat goes on.

AH, Me, 'tis time to drop by MY old soliciters I reckon, Ferret, Ferret, Poke & Pry, hmm?

"Rumour has it that the Beadle has been involved in "special holiday weekends in Devon". "

I hope the Beadle found the place. Why use satnav when Peter Snow's Swingometer would do the trick. Or a Tom-Tom-Sarah-and-Sue.

Why does Anticant always bring sex into our table talk?

ben trovato said...

Because it brings in the customers!

anticant said...

Because two of the only three topics worth talking about - religion and politics - are barred from the Burrow as being too serious, which only leaves sex, which isn't.

Even my heroines - bosom-heavingly chaste though they be prior to matrimony - are aware of the facts of life.
