Etiquette

I am certain that several of my readers will enjoy The Recently Deflowered Girl: The Right Thing to Say On Every Dubious Occasion. You know who you are.

Deflowerment at Seance

At seance conducted by smooth-talking gypsy, you ask him to produce spirit of Rudolph Valentino. Spirit of Valentino appears and you are deflowered.

After deflowerment, you say, “Gee, Mr Valentino, may I have your autograph?”

He says, “To tell the truth, this whole seance is a fake.”

You say: “Personally, I don't believe in them either.”

Curses! It seems that the Gorey estate has asked it be taken down!
