Other Fugitives and Other Strangers: Contest

I have a copy of Other Fugitives and Other Strangers to give away. A signed copy! Rigoberto was kind enough to dedicate the book to a Lorcaloca reader. That's you! You!

The contest is open to everyone.

To win the book just leave as a comment your favorite double entendre. It could be something you've read in a poem or novel. Or something you heard in a movie. Etc. If you think the double entendre needs some explaining, some context go ahead and provide it.

After a few days I will ask Rigoberto to pick his favorite double entendre. The winner gets the book.

Good luck.

And oozed sap

A friend of mine has a teenage son with a new girlfriend who he's crazy about. She said she will tell him that he can't have the car and he will say "Well, then I'm walking to Tasha's house."

I said he was like this wild young explorer out in the world. I said, "He's walking to Mount Tasha."

And my friend said, "Yes, that's exactly what he's doing."

O Rose, thou art sick!
The invisible worm
That flies in the night,
In the howling storm,

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy,
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.
