I decided you were all dirty buggers when yesterday’s blog post – “Let’s Talk About Sex” – started going off. I’m talking crazy clicks. Ah, I thought, so that’s the secret.

And I immediately joined the masses in Googling what the “triceratops sex position” might be.

I can’t quite bring myself to even explain the tamer version, aside from pointing out that a triceratops has three horns …
The dirtier version … oh gawd.
Anyways … that blog about bar hopping in Newie will have to wait another day.
Song of the day: Berlin “Sex … I’m a …
