Men's magazine Ralph was planning to include the boobs as a free gift with its January issue.

Classy.

What kind of name is "Ralph" for a men's magazine?

Apparently, you never read "Forever" by Judy Blume.

5: No, I never read that one. But after reading up on it at Wikipedia, now I understand.

"Judy Blume considers this book to have had one "odd and lasting side-effect of its popularity"; the decline in the popularity of the name Ralph. Throughout the book, Michael consistently refers to his penis as "Ralph", and the subsequent generation who grew up reading Forever seemed unwilling to consider it as a suitable name for their children."

My wife says she has a similar problem with the B-52s song "Rock Lobster", after a friend of ours revealed that his ex-girlfriend had bestowed this nickname on his penis.

Likely not, but it's the first thing I think of when I hear "Ralph." (And there's also the vomiting usage. What did poor Ralph ever do to be so rudely treated?)

Similarly Mona Boone Jakon. Which Cat Stevens revealed was his pet name for same.

Resolved: If you have a pet name for your Mr. Wally penis you are probably a dick. If you share it publicly you most certainly are.

I have never read the book in 11, or "Forever" (of course). I associate the name with Ralph S. Mouse.

If a man told me his penis was named "Nader," I, well, I just don't think I could take him or his penis very seriously. I'd be happy to read about such a person in a book, though.

Perhaps tangentially related, here, for all the Unfogged ladeez in the house, is some advice straight from Yahoo on how you can snag a rich guy.

Sample tip: "...at dinner, they don't settle for anything less than grade-A beef, so four-star steak houses are prime ground for high-powered business types. Before sitting down to rack up the bill (on the company expense account, of course), they'll probably hit the bar first."

Go get 'em, girls!
