  1. Nessa says:

    I just thought about something else I like to say. I like to say Franks and Beans for men’s junk. BUT I have to say it like the guy from There’s Something About Mary. My place in hell is secure for mocking the special needs people.

  2. Bay says:

    “Taking out the garbage” is awfully close to a euphemism on Vanity 6′s 1982 album. In the song “If A Girl Answers, Don’t Hang Up,” a girl calls her boyfriend only to have a strange girl answer his phone. (Actually, the other woman is voiced by Prince.) So the first chick asks to speak to Jimmy — “Hello? Is Jimmy there?/ Yes, but he’s taking shower./ Oh, I see — did he just take out the trash?/ No, that’s something he used to do. Now he’s takin’ out me.”

    Believe it or not, the lyrics in that song actually get worse.

    ROFL!!! Can’t believe how much of that album I remember. That’s just sad!

    So I’m totally backing up the “taking out the garbage” euphemism. When it was used among my circle of friends, it meant sleeping with, well, someone of loose morals. Like, you know, someone who might hold a penis her mouth ’til the swelling went down.

    Fun episode!!!

  3. Kelley says:

    Bay – stop making me blush !!!

    I’m still digesting this episode, but I think I kinda LOVED it ! Did Shane grrrr ? Must listen again to be sure.

    For the record – I’m ALL OVER “going to M.O.” – Laura rocks.

  4. Bridget says:

    Nessa: That’s hilarious, and I will see you there. :D

    Bay: I want to hear that song now! It sounds awesome! If you say “taking out the garbage” is for reals, I’ll believe you. :) I still giggle when I think your euphemism, by the way!

    Kelley: Shane does that growl thing a lot, isn’t it great? He also does a mean Scooby-Doo.

  5. Shane says:

    Ness — can I call you Ness? Ness, I love the franks and beans bit… We do that around the office all the time. That, and “have you seen my baseball?”

    Bay – Thanks for confirming the taking out the trash euphemism. I still say it sounds suspect, though.

    Kelley – Grrrr!

  6. Kelley says:

    Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :-)

  7. Nessa says:

    Shane, you can call me Ness. Only because we share the same affection for Shirley.

  8. Jamie says:

    Is “taking out the garbage” the same as “poking around in the trash” – the latter clearly refers to the odd experience I may have had with a lady in my darker more youthful days…

  9. Bridget says:

    That sounds more like it than “taking out the trash” does, Jamie. Also, ew. :)

  10. Sid says:

    Young man! Gay leather pants… Chaps… I own chaps, I’m not gay… But I get a ton of shit for it at my theater where I work.

  11. Bridget says:

    Sid: See, this is why I was laughing about that ad. I don’t think you should call leather pants gay unless an individual pair leather pants have declared their sexual orientation to you.

    I think we’re going to need visual confirmation of the chaps, hon. Flickr awaits your awesomeness. :)
