:: [Prev] detachable penis [Next]
So a co-worker who shall remain nameless shows up at work today in an extremely complex skirt made of some sort of tweedy fabric with half an inch of fur trim at the hem and little shiny rocks (rocks!) sewn at various intervals along the bottom third of said garment. Skirt-wearing co-worker, another co-worker and myself were discussing the proper care of this baffling object (dry cleaning, apparently) when I made an intentionally lame crack about how she might have to "get her rocks off" before dropping at the cleaners. We all had a hearty chuckle about my saucy pun, then Skirty (not her real name) says, "You know, I don't really understand what that means."
"You know -- get your rocks off," the other two of us said, making encouraging gestures with our hands as if to help the joke along.
"That's some sort of sexual thing, right?"
"What, like touching or rubbing or something?"
"It has to do with testicles," I stage-whispered helpfully.
"I don't get it. They're not detachable or anything."
So that was the highlight of my workday. And you?

Sounds like her new office nickname is "Rocky"!

Yeah, "Skirty" here. I enjoyed reading your entry. I'll be using this "Get your rocks off" phrase at every turn. ;-)

You might be surprised, but there are situations where the phrase might not be wholly appropriate. Here, for example.

You crazy pontiff you.

Hey, what's Rocky doing these days? Is she still wearing rocks? Or did she get her rocks off?
HA HA HA HAAAA!!!!!!
