Oh y-s, oh y-s, oh y-s, y-s, y-s, Y-S!

Bizarre. An ad in today's Indy for a "feminine massager" guaranteed to bring women to "org--m" in 60 seconds.

What were they thinking, substituting those two litle dashes for the missing letters? Did they imagine that this would somehow make the ad less potentially offensive? And if so, to whom? Surely they didn't seriously believe that the kind of people who want electronic assistance to achieve sexual satisfaction in a minute flat would come over all Mary Whitehouse when confronted by the word orgasm?

C-me, c-me, that would be absurd.
