Just like the girl that married dear old dad

(Warning: adult-only content ahead. If you get offended, you deserve it for not believing me.)

Did you understand? There is ADULT-ONLY stuff ahead, as in PORN. You want PORN, then click on the link to the extended entry. You don't want PORN, don't click. Easy. Offended by porn and think it "degrades women"? Don't click.

Now, on to PORN.

Well, I was looking through Tart Graphics, wondering if I should change my web page to one of these themes (tempting; it would offend so many people), and I got to wondering -- where on earth did they find so much vintage porn? Then I remembered that this is the internet. The first site Google brought me was RetroRaunch, a very pretty, nicely designed site full of naked old people before they were old (or dead).

Of course, since it is PORN after all, a lot of the pictures are -- well, hum, grandma! We hardly knew ye. And I read somewhere -- I can't remember where -- that people didn't practice oral sex until after the 1940s. Shyeah, right.

PS: you could open this page in another window and listen to it while you look. (If you have Quicktime installed the song will play.) I know you're looking. Aaah! You looked! Caught you!

I guess I am in a better mood now.

Well, if you feel the need to festoon your page with pictures of nekkid women, far be it from your humble readers to say you nay!

In the interest of protecting you from lining the pockets of people you would find . . . objectionable (which is to say, difficult to refrain from beating unmercifully), I am well acquainted with the person who owns and runs RetroRaunch. Nothing wrong with the site at all, as you say -- it's a terrific site.

But the owner, with whom I interacted for many years at the Straight Dope Message Board, where she goes under the name "Stoidela," is a despicably unpleasant person. Let's just say that, if you put a wig on Ted Rall, then added in all the unpleasant personality traits of someone like Hesiod Theogeny, you'd almost have it.

Oh, I have no intentions of becoming a member. (Hmmm -- considering the subject, maybe another word should be used...) I don't need that much old porn.
