Warning: Figaro wrote the following gratuitous and adolescent post against his better judgment.
Quote: "Many in Congress must be taking dancing lessons trying to skirt the words ‘DP World’." Comment by figurist Jim Sweas to Figaro’s last post.
Figure of Speech: sexual innuendo.
We don’t usually post on Saturdays, but Mr. Sweas’s prurient comment got us thinking, unfortunately. (If you don’t know what "DP" stands for, you have our lasting respect. Googling won’t help either, thank God.)
If you’re in a certain Beavis & Butthead-like state, "Innuendo" itself becomes a sexual innuendo. (It’s also Latin for "nodding at," presumably while winking. )
Try reading the Wall Street Journal in that salacious frame of mind. Johnson & Johnson, Mobil Oil, ConAgra (what if Viacom bought it?), Peabody Energy, AAG Holding Company, Microsoft (could it use some ConAgra?), Safeway, Goldman Sachs (great porn star name), Wellpoint, Chubb, Texas Instruments, even Toys ‘R’ Us sound pretty darn spicy.
If you don’t have anything better to do (and we devoutly hope you do), feel free to add more sexy corporations in a comment.
Snappy Answer: "Heh heh, you said ‘skirt’".
