Sometimes What I Say Surprises Even Me

"There's nothing worse than postmodern cock, I have to say."

Indeed.

Ah? The things I learn chez Crazy.

So premodern and modern cock are just fine and dandy? I am dubious.

Dr. Crazy said...

I too, am dubious. However, FB made me post this, as it's one of those things that flies out of my mouth without me realizing it, and he thought it would get a conversation going that wasn't about DEATH, sweet death. Indeed, other than you and Belle, who are undauntable, I believe it has silenced everyone.

You know, when he made me post it I had to make him repeat what I said back, for I never realize I say these sorts of things when I say them. And that reminded me of a time when I did a similar thing with Medusa (long before blogging). I don't actually remember my line that time, but I know it ended with something like, "because I have more important things to do like theorize about voodoo."

That said, now that I think about it, I'm thinking that the early modern cock may be what we're after. Marvell and all.

I'm trying to imagine the context in which such an utterance might take place. I'm stumped :)

God, I totally agree.
And I offer a consideration not of early modern but of PRE-modern cock: let's get medieval, ladies.
Seriously.

another vote for the premodern.

Aw. And I was thinking postmodern cock would be detachable.

Sisyphus said...

Hmm detachable, good point. Maybe it's not all bad. Now Enlightenment cock is surprisingly interesting, what with Rochester and Byron and poor Tristram Shandy and all that. However, I think it is more interesting theoretically than as a matter of actually reading it.

Hmm postmodern cock would probably be a matter of pure spectacle, mere representation of signs, which kinda makes up for the detachable-ness. I'm right back where I started. Meh.
