Overheard in the Media

Spanking references are everywhere these days. Here are a few that made my spanko senses tingle.

On the radio:

During a retrospective on the failure of a major investment firm that led to the financial collapse a year ago, the presenter spoke of a review of "...those banking practices..."

When you say it fast, it sounds like TTWD.

In a newspaper:

After a dinner party, in front of a blazing fire, "the hostess finally at ease, with [guests] of various ages draped over laps and sofa arms..."

You finish the sentence!

On television:

A popular cooking show star who likes simple, casual dining complained that when she walked into a dining room and saw "the white tablecloth and the straight-backed chairs, I get shivers up my spine."

Who wouldn't?

From Hermione's Heart

Geez, it's like the media is terribly repressed and preoccupied at the same time--can't keep from talking about it.!

Oh you certainly find them Hermione. Loved the last one.


Hermione said...

Mick - Yes, I think there are a few spanko journalists out there.

Widgets - Yes, those cheeks are everywhere.

Ronnie - So did I.

shivers for straight back chairs... wow!!! Your picking up on this means Ron might have to keep you at home, and not let you out of the house.

I can so relate to this. My ears perk up without fail when I hear a radio commercial for any bank with a name that ends in a "s". (Commerce Bank, for example, gets me every single time).

Hermione said...

redxx - Hmmm, whatever would I do with my time?

Jennie - Welcome! Commerce bank - that's a good one.

'Overheard in the Media', would make a good 'photo caption' picture. The two busybodies listening at the door, heard these words uttered. "Hermoine my dear", said Ron. I am going to raise your dress waist high, pull down your knickers, and give that bare bottom of yours 'six of the best', with a cane. Do you understand Hermoine"
