A Conversation for Magnetic Poetry

A guy I know had such a kit with a rather suggestive-bordering-on-obscene example of 'poetry' on the front of his refrigerator, which I spotted while in his kitchen. So guys, be aware that when you invite people (especially of the opposite sex) round they might not appreciate your efforts, and in fact be rather scared of what kind of maniac they may be watching TV with!

My parents had a magnetic poetry set, and every time my brother's friends cam round they'd try to compose the most obscene sentences they could. My parents tended not to look at it that much, and whenever they had friends over they would end up having to explain to them why the phrase: "I want to lick chocolate off Brad Pitt's parts all day" (a comparatively mild offering, but one which stayed there for months) was stuck to their fridge.

There really ought to be a warning on the box about keeping the sets out of reach of teenagers.

Why didn't they just remove the obscene poetry from the fridge?

On that subject, is there any chance these people could be persuaded to bring out a John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester supplementary kit. That would be rather enjoyable.

If you do have the kind of home where it wouldn't seem out of place, obscene poetry can be the most fun variety. I do agree that such might not make the best impression on a first date, though. But it depends on the date! smiley - smiley

As I said; after the first week they barely looked at it. But when anyone visited they made straight for the, either to read what was on there or to write something themselves. It's the great hazard of something like magnetic poetry that - once the novelty has worn off - you almost forget it's there when you're not using it.

Of course, the one time I make a mildly inflammatory comment I go and sign my real name...
