One might almost call it a monologue

The McCain Institute for Advanced Vaginology announces: Know Your Vajayjay: An Expert Guide to What’s Up Down There.

All it lacks is an endorsement from Maureen Dowd, and clearly that’s just a matter of time.

I demur, though, on the V-word itself. “Vajayjay” is as uneuphonious a word as exists today; I’d almost rather hear one of the four-letter terms — no, not that one — instead.

Then again, my none-too-extensive experience with owners of same suggests that the preferred term is simply “there” (cf. The Tubes, “Don’t Touch Me There”).

    Normally, I have the utmost respect for your good taste and judgment.
    I recommend another cup of coffee.

    I prefer “cooch.” I had a girlfriend in college who demurely referred to it as a “po-po,” but to me, that sounds too much like it might mean the other gender’s attachments instead, so I never used that one myself. And I have always thought that the anatomical term was just waaay too close to being somebody’s name, since I have a cousin named Regina. Obviously, no-one ever actually *pronounced* the word to me, so reading it, I assumed it was pronounced like her name.

    Imagine my horror at discovering the pronunciation of the Saskatchewan city.

    That’s just wrong, people.

    Frank Sinatra and crew used to call it a “Bird”. So when he sang, “And your bird can sing” or ad libbed “How’s your bird Mrs. Robinson”, Dean, Sammy, Joey and Peter would hit the floor rolling.

    “Down there,” I believe is proper. Cooze has a nice ring, tho.

    Which makes me wonder about John Lennon’s “And Your Bird Can Sing” (from Revolver).

    I’m pretty sure John Lennon wasn’t in the Rat Pack, so I’m not sure he meant the same thing Frankie did when The Chairman covered the song.

    I wonder what Vijay Singh, the golfer, thinks of all this.

    OT, John S. I wish you’d get a new comment system. It’s always asking me to verify the letters/numbers but the box is empty. Grrrr.

    Dick-I just tried posting a commnet (not logged in) and the word verification came up. Not sure what’s wrong.
