It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

OK, boys and girls, let's come back to our senses

This post is not specifically in response to TGR's post, but is a general response to those inmates who have posted in this thread and who indicated their shock and dismay at my use of the name, "Pouty Lips".

I'm going to tell you about a television show - a very popular television show in fact. It was on the air for over a decade, and at certain times, it was the highest-rated show on (American) television. If you haven't guessed already, the show I'm talking about is "M*A*S*H".

One of the main characters on the show was Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan. Need I say more? I'm wondering where all your outrage was when this show was rated number one. Something happened in the intervening years which sensitized you so much that you now see a name like "Hot Lips" or "Pouty Lips" and instantly you recognize it as a grave, even vicious, offense against women, regardless of context! For those of you who feel that way, hyperbolize much? What would you do when confronted with actual, real viciousness? When you say that referring to someone as "Pouty Lips" is a vicious put-down, I just have to wonder what kind of genteel world you live in. I can't even begin to understand it.

BTW, I don't believe that the term, "babe", was used in my OP on this topic.
