Last week in Germany, a dominatrix ordered her client to walk around in public in a PVC suit and gas mask, which made some people fearful of terrorist activity. Der polizei were called, and apparently greater or lesser amounts of hilarity ensued.
For some reason, this reminded me of a young woman I dated for a while back in my undergrad years. She was ummm… colorful, and while I was dating her, she worked at a combination head shop and boutique for people who were ummm… even more colorful. In any event, we were talking on the phone one night, and she sounded kind of bummed, so I asked what was wrong.
“Oh, it was a lousy day at work. Someone stole all our nipple clamps.”
I couldn’t help it — I just cracked up, and said, “Terrible times are these, when even innocent purveyors of nipple clamps are subject to such depredations!”
Well, I thought it was funny.
