I wrote this in response to some goofball's attempt to "pornalize" a website.

Porneau? – No, No….

Dear Anne:

Webster defines pornography as “obscene literature, photographs, paintings et cetera,… intended to cause sexual excitement.”

It seems to me that the U.S. Supreme Court has defined pornography as pertaining to one’s “prurient” interest. Webster defines prurient as excessively interested in or curious about sexuality…tending to excite such interest or curiousity. This word comes from the Latin, pruiens, which translates to “to itch”!!!!

Personally, I am sorely disappointed. My prurient interest wasn’t excited at all. Rather than the hard poor corn that I so pruiently pursued; what I perused was parody. And not even good parody or satire at that. Pretty much just rude and crude for the Howard Stern effect. Obviously, a program just inserted some buzzwords here and there to “pornalize” that website. It’s wasn’t like a flesh and blood person, oozing sexuality from every pore sat down and lovingly dissected everyone and everything.

Webster, you know -- that vertically challenged kid on the old sit-com, defines parody as an imitation of the characteristic style…designed to ridicule. It comes from the Greek word, parodia which translates to a “burlesque song or poem”. Another definition for parody is, “poor imitation, travesty!!!!”

I wasn’t offended myself; but then I wasn’t singled out (I think) for the royal treatment. I can understand your feelings. I don’t think that I’d be personally offended in any case, because as we know my soul is uglier than a sack of festered (Expletive deleted).

Yup, probably obscene and even profane, but porneau – no, no. Further prurient participation was not pricked on my part. Of course, I don’t know how or what Clarence Thomas would be feeling if he were to peruse and ponder the content. Did he ever figure out who put that hair on his can of Coke???

At least you can take some comfort in knowing that our word pornography is based on the Greek word pornographos, which translates to “writing of harlots”!!! Why the nerve of those dirty whores!!!

Yours truly,

Raoul Abrasive

Actually, the flaunting of that which is obscene is basically a rude "mooning" of one's enemy, brought on by the anger associated with unjust social oppression. It is intended to cause the mocker personal shame and feelings of inferiority in response to the initial affront that one female receives from an unfriendly other.

Another fun article. I hope to see much more from you.
