They don't like boobies, either.

Stinky!

This story was reported on the BBC one day last week, where they had a spokesperson from the RSPB. Long story short? It was the off-the-shelf forum software's auto-moderation system. As soon as it was brought to their attention, they fixed it. Tits, cocks, shags, etc. are now all perfectly acceptable in context. Human mods are expected to pick up inappropriate context.

So may you all Shag someone with a lousy pair of Tits, till your Cocks rot and drop off!

You know who else didn't like Cox? That's right: Ghostface!

Speaking of Cox, this guy has the worst name ever for a urologist.

Maybe they just need to try it once.

You know who else has a problem with all these birds?

My pussy, that's who.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds? Look, if they want to have any weight as a feminist advocacy group, they may want to change the name.

Do you prefer your boobies brown, or masked, and would you rather have great tits or bushtits?

Or are you more of a dickcissel?

so what was the old version of the penis game?
posted by shmegegge at 3:42 PM on June 4, 2007


I wouldn't mind a cockatoo myself.

A woodcock is also pleasant to encounter, but this is where I draw the line.

I don't have any strong preference, but a marabou never harmed a boobie or a tit.

I hear that a militant lesbian splinter group has already formed: The Chick Appreciation Society.

(The Chick Appreciation Society would like to clarify that they in no way support the aims or beliefs of the Canadian Pigeon Fanciers' Association)

How about a King shag with chicks?

Tanagers today! Grouse, grouse, grouse. They're just flycatchers, bustards and zitting cisticolas! (I'd like to whip poor Will.)

Bittern? I a grebe — I'm just a coot.

Oh, duck off, you great flaming galah!
posted by UbuRoivas at 5:13 PM on June 4, 2007


It is important to know just what kind of tits you like, I think. Especially if you're some kind of Tit Tyrant. Penduline tits, Fire-crested Tits, Sombre Tits, Crested Tits, Pygmy Tits. They come in all sorts of colors, too: Grey, Yellow, Blue, Azure, Black. Or maybe a Mountain Velvetbreast is more your speed?

If you are more of a cock person, well, there's snowcocks and cock-of-the-rocks, as well as woodcocks, not to mention all the woodpeckers.

Enough to keep a dirty-minded ornithologist occupied for years!

Surrounded by all this expert analysis & commentary on the various kinds of tits in the world, I'm starting to feel a bit like a shag on a rock.

Some guys like small tits. Just be sure your're not robin the cradle.
posted by longsleeves at 5:52 PM on June 4, 2007


True. After all, you wouldn't want to be tarred & feathered & run out of town.

Q. Who killed Cock Robin^?

God. Can we not avoid such entendre?

A. Batman. In a hissy fit.

The interview with the RSPB press officer girl was fantastic. She was so determined to convey the "we're not PC-gone-mad" message that she said cock a lot when asked.

And then when she was asked if there were other words that might be amusing, she riffed off all the others cited above off her own initiative. It was actually very hot, in a Daisy Donovan sort of way.

a lot of interesting bird names that I had not even considered. I despise censorship - where will one draw the line?

Grouse, grouse, grouse.

What?

That is so getting favorited.

Grouse!

The difference between the adjective & the verb almost makes me think those down under folks might do some things on purpose just to be a bit off the beam?
