Taleena (now, there’s an exotic and beautiful name for ya), at Sun Comprehending Glass, hosts this week’s Carnival of Comedy - number 27, for those who keep track of such things.

Here’s a not-so-random quote:

“blog d’ellison [sic] has a profanity laced post on condom marketing.”

Hmm. Let’s take a closer look, shall we? Upon checking, the post in question contains only one example of profanity: a sad, lonely fuckbomb...admittedly, used as The Verb (“fuck our brains out”), not simply an expletive. None of the other of the “Big Seven” Serious Profanities* figure in the post.

Mature themes? Yes. The following expressions may be found:
  • butt plugs
  • Big Johnson
  • salami
  • Personal Meat
  • dick
But what do you expect in a piece on Condom Marketing, anyway?

Profanity laced? Hardly. How about “Containing a nugget of chewy profanity and sprinkled with a delicate frosting of crude euphemisms. With schoolyard epithet!”

Now, that’s a downright tasty intro. Taleena - read and learn!
