    1. I'm assuming you've pulled OFF your frilly knickers and tossed them on the stage.

  3. I've got a bag of old knickers at the ready...

  4. If I was wearing any knickers, I would throw them on the stage!

  5. I have been instructed by The Mistress to inquire publically to wit:
    PLEASE DEFINE THE TERM 'SAFETY GAY' FOR A BITCH WOUDJA.

    I am so not cool. I know. I know. *opens tiny clown umbrella and cringes*

    1. I thought I was the only un-cool one.

    2. NATIONS & BLAZNG SCARLET: The definition of "SAFETY GAYS" is best left to the professional gays...Jon, Thom, Norma, and Peenee for instance.

      Mistress MJ could tell you but her definition wouldn't have as much "je ne sais quoi."

      ATTENTION GAYS: Please define "SAFETY GAYS" for Ms. Nations, Blazng Scarlet and other non-homosexualists.

    3. In a nutshell: When a diva is busy singing and dancing, she is often accompanied by a brigade of choreographed male dancers who not only add to the festivity, but are there to catch her if she falls. Hence the term "safety gays".

    4. Thank you, Thom.

      Send me a link to whatever you consider the ultimate SAFETY GAY clip and I'll post it for the enlightenment of our readers.

    1. Topher, I should have included you in my list of professional gays but I've had too many of "those" days too.

  7. Now someone tell me what a 'professional homosexualist' is. I can't seem to find a listing for that on DEX. Do you get a company car? What about a key to the executive glory hole? What about company shares? I'd share company with anyone here (except Knudson because he smells like pee.)

    1. A "professional homosexualist" might be described as "a mo in the know."

  8. Has anyone noticed that ol' Tom Jones dresses on the left? Put on your sunglasses first; that outfit's a veritable nuclear holocaust of groovy.

    2. JON: I knew I shouldn't have given you the key to the executive glory hole!

      You're standing too close again!

    3. If Sir Thomas were on the other side I probably wouldn't need to be closer than about a foot away... Jx
