My rule is that you can post on any thread but this one...

Oh, I do it all the time - it's great fun! After all, I know I don't need to taste dog turds before I can decide they're not worth eating!

Each time this thread appears on the New Posts page, this song immediately comes into my head and stays for hours and hours: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=507mzQGC0nk. I like it, but enough is enough now. Secretly hoping the thread dies out...

Well, Well, I missed both the song & the bloke with five fingers and a thumb on one hand when viewing a favourite movie!
Literary joke inspired by this post and the thread. Why was Hall Cained? Because he refused to Marie Corelli.

I went to a party last night and the book came up in conversation. One woman said she'd read all three, couldn't put them down, but that they were really badly written so she is mystified why she was so glued to them. I was asked if I'd read them (having this reputation as a reader) and admitted that I was not interested. Perhaps it depends how much one has S M fantasies! I know there is quite a market in fluffy pink handcuffs! Personally pain doesn't do it for me!  Confused

No pink fluffy handcuffs I assure you Ann some of the stuff was quite disturbing!

The BDSM stuff was calmed down in the 2nd and 3rd book, but it does definately get in your head, I had the exact same feelings about the 3rd book in particular, I was cringing at the way it was written but I just couldn't put it down.
