And in Lille, too... I daresay the people there had better things to worry about than a fakir faker.

People were expected to pay to see that? High school kids these days sport far more 'interesting' (to put it politely) hardware.

If he blew his nose once in a while he wouldn't be so off putting.

Phideaux,

You have it right my friend. Mom, can I have permission to have a gold chain attached to both my nipples? A actual question a parent friend related to us from her 14yo daughter.

Back in my day (oh, God, am I really so old I'm using that line? Shoot me now!), it was truly, deeply embarrassing when two teens were kissing, and their braces locked together. Now, it's considered no big thing when a girl's tongue piercing gets caught in the ring of a guy's sack piercing.

Can you imagine a newspaper now covering a guy nailing his tongue to a board?

"Can you imagine a newspaper now covering a guy nailing his tongue to a board?"

I can imagine that more than, say, something actually news worthy.

shoving a 4 inch spike up the penis got me a good reaction from the public but my love life has suffered terribly

The "viagra-like" benefits don't always work out...
