(Anorak (UK))   Ever wonder how drunk the framers were the night they signed the Constitution? Fifty-four bottles of Madeira, 60 bottles of claret, eight of whiskey, 22 of porter, eight of hard cider, 12 of beer, and seven bowls of alcoholic punch, that's how drunk   (anorak.co.uk) divider line 4

ginandbacon: BMulligan: ginandbacon: BMulligan: Best Princess Celestia: Donnchadha: Sybarite: Fortunately, upon more sober reflection, they carefully edited out the SHOW US YOUR TITS clause they'd added the night before.

Original wording of the Second Amendment:

"A well regulated sorority being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to show their bare tits shall not be infringed."


Given the language of the time, I believe it would have been a little different. 'Free to bare thy bosoms' and all.

Not necessarily. "Tit" is a very old word. In Old English, "titt" means nipple or breast. "Tit" was a common word in Scandanavian languages, referring originally to a small animal (e.g., those birds which are still called bushtits or titmouses) but as early as the 16th century came to refer to a girl or woman, often used in a deprecatory way synonymous with "hussy" or "minx." Curiously, though - and in this sense you're correct - the plural form was essentially unknown from its passage out of common use in the transition from Old English to Middle English, arising again only in 1928 or thereabouts.

I just got the weirdest girl boner.

Then my work here is done.

You get a gold star for exceptional internetting.


Thank you. I only hope you understand that my goal was not merely to titillate.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: If I just publicly committed high treason on the most powerful nation on the earth I'd what to get all tore up too.


Guess who doesn't know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence?
