"Bronwen" still can't get her own computer ---- and she's off the
reservation, yet again, and on the warpath.
I tell you, that husband of hers must really be a male, chauvinist pig.
Appalling! Why, why ---- he treats her like a squaw!
Secondly, I can't IMAGINE a more disgusting sight than even the
*thought* of "Bronwen" stretched out on a Hawaiian beach, or any *other*
beach ---- in the complete buff. Vide infra pro risibus.
We DON'T need that.
'Twould be Visual Pollution ---- of the worst sort.

"Young whelks and winkles, in pubs, do it, Little sponges in their tubs
do it. Let's do it, let's fall in love. Cold salmon, quite 'gainst
their wish, do it, Even lazy jellyfish do it, Let's do it, let's fall in
love. The most select schools of cod do it, Though it shocks 'em I
fear, Sturgeon, thank God, do it, Have some caviar dear. In shady
shoals, English soles do it, Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it,
Let's do it, let's fall in love." ---- Cole Porter, Yale '13 -- 1928
