I received my copy of The Bedside Guide to No Tell Motel via Lulu yesterday (very quick service there), and was reading it last night after the games. What a naughty-fun anthology! Kudos to Reb and Molly. Some of my favorites so far:

Emily Lloyd's "Plummy," which opens with "She stuck her thumb in and pulled out a plum. I didn't know it was in there." And later alludes to WCW with "My wife! I said. Is probably! [tug] Saving! [tug] That for breakfast!"

Jill Alexander Essbaum's "On Reading Poorly Transcribed Erotica," which takes a standard porn passage and performs a word substitution with hilarious results: "He shoveled his duck into her posse/and all her worm juices spilled out."

Charles Jensen's "Rough Trade," a wonderful prose poem which ends with " . . . a butterfly flaps its wings in Beijing and a moving car blow-job goes suddenly, horribly wrong."

I'll be bringing it to the bedside table tonight. *wink*

Oh, thank you, thank you--this makes me want to "burn six or seven calories" [grin]
