The latest installment of THE SQUID JIGGER'S BALL for 5 April 2009 was a lecture series on the birds, the bees and the butterflies, the flowers, the trees, and the squiddies (an English-language idiomatic expression which refers to courtship and sex). The phrase is evocative of the metaphors and euphemisms often used to avoid speaking openly and technically about the subject. According to tradition, the birds and the bees is a metaphorical story sometimes told to children in an attempt to explain the mechanics and consequence of sexual intercourse through reference to easily observed natural events such as plant pollination. Yeah baby. Hopefully, you all learned a little something. Also, feel free to use it again. Put all your little chillen' down in front of the radio and play the set list and they will be all set. Simpatico, you dig? Again, no thanks is needed, it's a community service we aim to provide.
Spring has sprung. You feel it? A dip in your hip and that glide in your stride? In spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt toward the Sun and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to spring forth. Spring is seen as a time of growth, renewal, of new life (both plant and animal) being born. The term is also used more generally as a metaphor for the start of better times. Yeah baby, so dig yourself and be groovy. Go out and do something nice for someone.
Also, we paid some tribute to the late LUX INTERIOR of THE CRAMPS. He passed into perverted glory in February. THE SJB chose to celebrate his achievements and have one more down low ultra twist in his honor:
And of course since we are dancing:
Happy Happy Happy SPRING everyone, enjoy it. Finest Kind. Heigh ho.
Wowie Zowie, our pal Table Top Joe gave us the heads up on this one. He also stated that "you know there's a GOD when you can freely access this stuff". Amen.
