In the middle of the 20th century, when the back-street abortions were rampant, the FBI in the U.S. mounted an unprecidented crack down on the abortion providers. In an effort to avoid being arrested (or worse), the abortionists took to hiding their programs in ice cream parlours and popsicle stands. Anti-choice terrorists used the phrase to signal their compatriots to leave the store quickly just before the explosion in order to avoid dectection

the internet is so helpful. and weird.

I don't think blow this popsicle stand is at all dirty. It's your filthy mind.

Also the "wad" in "shoot my wad" was originally a pile of money (as in "wad of cash"). The pornification of everygoddamnthing is ruining perfectly good phrases.

Of course it doesn't mean "let's blow this popsicle stand", because "popsicle stand" isn't a sexual euphamism, so the phrase would be meaningless.

Shotgun shells have a something called a "wad" that sits behind the pellets, and gets "blown" when the gun goes boom. So maybe the term has hunting origins?

I've actually used "the money quote" to describe the salient portion of a document, before realizing that while I wasn't certain, it was probably derivative from "the money shot". God alone knows where I picked it up from.

I have also had a partner ask me, musingly, what the derivation of "on all fours with" was, and answered by saying "I dunno, let's see what pops up on Google." People, do not google "on all fours with" with your boss looking over your shoulder. The results are bad. (The derivation of the phrase as used legally is buying horses, I later read. I still don't quite get it -- the legal usage means something like corresponds with, or is perfectly applicable to, and I can't see what's corresponding to what if you're buying horses -- but at least it sounds clean.)

hoist on one's own petard,

Explosives, not firearms. And you have to go back to muskets to shoot one's wad. Powder, wad, shot, ram, aim fire repeat. To have shot one's wad, one must first have shot all of one's bullets. My guess is it took the first musketeer about two seconds before making a sexual reference to the procedure.

There's a funny way that decreased standards of prudery has made the language more prudish. "Dick" has been a synonym for penis for quite awhile, but it's only become unusable as a name recentlly -- back in the '60s, even though if you'd asked anyone with a normal command of obscenity what "dick" meant, they would have known, "Dick Nixon" didn't inspire a Beavis and Butthead "heh heh heh" everytime anyone heard it, because for most people it was so inappropriate that it just didn't come to mind.

Now that we're all expected to be consistently thinking about sex all the time, you end up policing your language a lot more for double meanings so as to avoid the Beavis and Butthead moments.

To illustrate my 34, see Tripp's 26. Actually, I don't think there's any intended or original obscene meaning related to buying horses or otherwise in the legal usage of "on all fours with", and I doubt Tripp can come up with anything plausible. But we now live in a culture where it's a point of pride to invent double meanings regardless of whether there's any point to it.

If you purchased, unseen, a normal draft horse of a certain shoulder-height (in hands), some tool could (and various tools have, way back there) deliver a Shetland pony-sized animal, since if that animal reared back on its hind legs, the shoulder height of the pony would be similar to a regular draft horse, thus fulfilling the letter of the contract. So one specifies the measurements of the animal when it is on all fours.

50: In my experience the pron industry were early adopters and exploiters of search in general and tricks to increase their "searchability" in particular. I think the rest of the world (and search engine algorithms) have caught up to some degree and as a result pron pages don't dominate the front pages as much. For instance, just searched on "watersports" and everything on the first few pages was water-skiing, boats and the like. I am pretty sure using Alta Vista back in the day you would have gotten a more ribald mix.

A buddy of mine was in the Philippines and got kidnapped by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. They had him bound up in a little cage, and kept him there through the entire monsoon season. It was a tight, wet, MILF box.

Back in the early sixties, my uncle just fell in love with the Twist. He would go anywhere to do that dance, and when the song hit the charts, he would do anything to hear it. In fact, he would go to any concert he could -- anywhere! -- just to hear it in concert and dance along. All across the country, he followed Mr. Checker's band -- he was a real Chubby chaser!

Moro Islamic Liberation Front

Those guys really should think about changing their name, or something. Same as FARC, which reads halfway as farce, or Fark.

101: Yeah, apparently there is also an attraction at Disney World called the "Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor".

I think Disney's ad campaign for that may be ill advised, though. "Come for the mouse, stay for the MILF"

aside related to 105, I knew someone who used to like mixing bourbons, and we'd tease him about Knob (creek) Gobbler (wild turkey) nights.

This guy I work with is a real neat freak, constantly cleaning something or another. Yesterday, he's carrying this stack of arguments he's made in other appeals when he just got all fixated on his door being all smudged up. He dropped his briefs right there in the middle of the office so he could polish his knob.

Actually, my sister volunteers at a rehabilitation centre where they teach traditional cooking skills to young offenders. She says she prefers to go on Wednesdays, because if only a couple of guys show up, she sometimes gets given a spit roast.

102- At a dinner party, a refined gentleman asked what was good to wear for cooking. I said I'm usually naked while tossing my fiancee's salad, then he told me that he'd just finished shrimping and got his ascot on one.

No lie. And if we are really really serious about world peace we just gotta get everyone together and tell fart jokes first.

Cause the answer to righteous anger (which is, as we know, da bomb) is a fart joke. Simple as that.

My cat has this weird upholstery fixation where she's always sniffling or nibbling some fabric or other in the house. Why, just the other day, I came home to find her munching carpet.

My new girlfriend had invited me inside her home for the first time since we'd begun seeing each other. Having met her outside her house several times in the past and having commented on her bright fuschia window dressing seen from the street, I said "I'm surprised that the carpet matches the drapes."

Back in 2002, when Manute Bol fought Refrigerator Perry on Fox's Celebrity Boxing, it took me a minute to parse something I heard from one of the boxers' corners between rounds: "Someone's pooped. In the punch, Bol! It ain't pretty, sure, but ya gotta clean this up. Everything else you got--in the punch!"

You know what would be neat? What if donkeys were marsupials, and then when you went on a camping trip and were lugging all kinds of stuff up the mountain you could just take it in the ass?

If I am not mistaken, this might be quasi-obligatory for you at some point.

My friend is a musician who keeps the instruments covered while playing them for their protection. Thus he plays the canvas piano, the quilted violin, and the skin flute.

I was recently playing bridge with a few ladies of my acquaintance. I was new to the game, and kept forgetting the rule about following suit. Finally, my partner grew so frustrated with my clumsy play that she chided me, "For the last time, once you go black, you never go back."

Oddly enough, I've just come back from seeing Joan Rivers' stage show, in which she performed a skit based on one of Henry Fonda's most famous roles. You wouldn't have thought that an aging comedienne would have been able to pull off Twelve Angry Men in under five minutes, but she had us gasping in the aisles.

Our cute gardener came by last week to plant the bulbs for next spring. Because of all the rain we've had recently, the ground in the flower bed was too muddy to do a proper job of it. I stamped around the garden looking for a suitable spot. At last, after much frustration, I told her that she should kneel down where I was standing and plant her tulips on the firm protuberance she would find there.
