That is both disgusting me and, at the same time, making me glad that I have some cold leftover sausages in the fridge.

Is there a medical or psychological term for that type of disconnect?

(if there is, I bet the prefix "cannaboid" is part of it. just a guess...)

There's a BIG difference between Louis XIV & Louis XVi.

For one, Louis XIV would never have left Marie Antoinette a virgin for seven years.
