Friday’s fun finds
I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by to add their comments/thoughts on Wednesday’s blog. It is possible to discuss a potentially volatile topic civilly, agree to disagree and share different viewpoints without devolving into schoolyard tactics, and y’all proved it this week. ♥
Nothing of import today, so I thought I’d end the week on a lighter note and share some finds.

Pretty damned risqué for 1968, no?
My favorite verse:
Tell the socialites to look the other way
It’s instinctive stimulation you convey
It’s a necessary function
Made for those without compunction
Who are tired of vanilla every day
Damn! People said “vanilla” back then, too? Here’s the song, for those who’d like to listen:
And finally, for a few more laughs, check out Hermione’s Friday FAIL photos. The tunnel one is especially outrageous! 😀
Have a great weekend, y’all.
