A salute to capitalism

First, new poll on the left sidebar joining the rhyming euphemism poll. How do you feel about JK Rowling outing Dumbledore?

My commute now takes me through the sleepy community of Arlington, MA. Nothing very interesting here at all, except for the Monroe Salt Works.


Yup, you read that right. They sell Hoo-has. Which I'm sure is a equivalent to bric-a-brac or doo-dad, and not in any way a slang term for the lady parts of a lady. At first I thought that Arlington had one of those rare pottery/houseware/whore shops, but I was stopped at a red light and didn't see a string of MIT undergrads streaming into the place. Instead, it might be more like a Sears Auto Center, but instead of tires you can get your hoo-ha rotated, or perhaps you can shop for a new hoo-ha.

So ladies, next time you're in Arlington, swing by the Monroe Salt Works and ask to see the 2008 models.

whats really sad is that some counties (those in the south to be specific) are now thinking of removing the Potter books from the public libraries because of his gayness.

don't these people realize he is a fictional character?!?!?

What a coincidence, I've been looking for a salty Hoo-Ha

and bric-a-brac

Carl: I think that was behind Rowling's thinking, she just said "Screw it, if you can't deal with a novel, I'll decide that one of the characters was gay."

Tasty: You and Jiggs need to write a sea shanty titled Salty Hoo-Ha.

I bought my hoo ha at a resale shop.

slappy said...

I want a re-release of Scent of a Woman where he just screams "PACINO!" instead of "HOOAH!"

At a consignment store a friend of mine picked up a nice oak dining room table and a new hoohah.

I was looking for a new hoo-ha, but my state has very firm anti-hoo-ha laws.

Road trip!

jiggs said...

indeed, I was calling back to the conversation that we had in vegas a long time ago where I suggested that Pacino ought to say, "PACINO!" instead of "Hooha!"

slappy said...

Earl: Repeal the anti-hoo-ha laws! Bring it to the Supreme Court - Clarence Thomas is definitely pro-hoo-ha.

Jiggs: Huh, I totally forgot about that. I only remember our can't-miss plan to have a vaudeville show of two people doing bad Dean Martin impressions.
