William Safire’s NYT Erotica

Fishtern Maureen Miller alerted us to this gem in William Safire’s column yesterday. Usually we like to protect our innocent Fishterns from the lewd realities of a scary, scary world, but we are helpless in the face of a hot n’ bothered NYT. We’ll show you “entangled,” Judy Miller! Quoth Safire:

“A pun is to wordplay what dominatrix sex is to foreplay – a stringing whip that elicits groans of guilty pleasure.”

Rock us like a hurricane, baby. GROWL.
