Swivel on *this*, Little Nell

Gah. Too busy to post anything lengthy but I had to share this snippet: the kawaii Japanese female tarento on NHK's "let's learn Italian" show last night was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with, underneath some abstract logo I didn't recognise, the following slice of fried gold:

Dick Swiveller
Oh. My. God.

And yes, I know that Richard Swiveller is actually a character from a little-known Dickens novel, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that, even if our smiling hostess is similarly well versed in the works of England's greatest novellist, she may not be fully cognizant that her t-shirt effectively reads "I spin round on penises".

LOL. This reminds me of the T-shirt one girl friend used to wear sporting a really weird message. Something among the lines "The happy, felatios people" :D

Well, that's what you want, I suppose. No-one should be miserable about giving felatio - or receiving it, for that matter.

I used to live not far from Beijing. One day when I was travelling into town on the bus, a girl got on wearing a T-shirt with the slogan "Lovely Pussy Society". I wished that I'd been in a position to at least gesture to her what it really meant.

A couple of friends of mine said they saw another girl (this was in southern Jiangsu Province) wearing a T-shirt which said something like "Bring that boner over here right now".
