Oops! Where did that come from? No, I love the internet because occasionally you stumble across someone saying something important. Something you believe in. And you sit there nodding to yourself, thinking, 'Man, I wish I'd said that.'

Here's my favourite bit:
It was like the penis was literally the magical eleventh finger that allowed you to write, and if I could just GROW ONE SOMEHOW, or imagine it into being, I would gain the abilities I so desired.
Tee hee. Anyway, I'd love to know what you think on the matter. Because I think MAUREEN JOHNSON IS A BLOODY GENIUS!
