Pubic Hair is public

About ten days ago I was being interviewed on Gayelle by Dennis McCommie. The subject was the upcoming NDDCI dance season at the Queen's Hall. It went OK and was helpful in promoting the show. The kind of publicity that we struggle for and we're glad we got this opportuity. But the thing that stands out most about the interview was the beginning of it. As we came out of the break and the camera kids were counting us back in, Dennis was hurridly trying to get rid of the piece of gum he'd been tangling with during the break. Talk show talking can make any mouth dry. He just barely got it out and stuck inconspicuously on a tray on the desk. Caught by our audience, he explained his predicament. He also shared that he just only then noticed a pubic hair on the now discarded piece of gum. "Can you say that on air, in the morning", I quipped. He explained that as long as it wasn't my pubic hair. I continued the joke and referred to Justice Clarence Thomas in the first Sexual Harrassment trial ever. Inerestingly Dennis had found himself in a similar trial and left T&TEC amid similar allegations. LOLTT

this reminds me of this one time [not in band camp]...

Opened a leading newspaper, there's an ad from a WELL KNOWN bank - a Notice Ad. Sounds normal right? It reads...

"PUBIC NOTICE" - surely the copywriter was on vacation...
