    Whoever wrote this loved writing about a dildo placed in a woman's box so much that he (can't imagine it was a she) used a variation of the line twice more in a four-sentence article.

    "... some kind of blackening agent..."?

    Can't believe they got away with using the word dildo. Seems like sex toy would have been usable. But not dildo.

    Wonder what the "c' word was? I'm guessing "cute."

    Don't hockey fans shower the ice with dildos regularly? IIRC, I've seen "dildo" used in those wire stories. I don't think its as shocking anymore.

    They used sex toy in the headline, so I'm guessing you're right ...

    Frank Drebin was charged with assault with a concrete dildo.

    I thought this thread was going to be about the classic golf line:
    "Despite the abominable handling of the press luggage at the Zurich airport, the Swiss Open got off to a rather fine start Thursday."
    Or something like that.
