The sock dologizing mantrap.
She's not bad though.

La Femme

You know, I still don't get that. I know what it's from, and I get the reference. I just don't really understand its actual meaning.

Matt

Once upon a time men really did walk around with rolled up socks in their trousers to appear as if they were horse hung.
Well, people back then weren't really all that different from people today.
They just didn't speak about it like they do these days.
(They had ads for, er, 'prosthetic' trouser snakes to impress the ladies with back then.)
The ladies had similar false advertisments as well, so the playing field was pretty fairly even.

But imagine the poor lady who found out the bulge was more than real, but understated..?

La Femme

Well, sure, but "dologizing" is a made up word -- at least as far as I've been able to tell. Perhaps I just haven't been searching hard enough?

Matt

It is a word that is archaic and no longer used.
Mirriam Websters tend to remove them.
The root word, I believe, is Dologise (Maybe with a z).
It meant to pay over rapt attention to or to be overly worshipful of.
So, the sock-dologizing old mantrap spent her days staring at male crotches.
(A future in modern politics was hers for the taking!)

La Femme

Well *I* can't find any other reference to it anywhere, but I DID stop looking through by something like the 15th page of results after you wrote this. I can't find anything with s or z, and nothing with the whole word. You could completely be making this up. :-P

Matt

Now that is odd.

La Femme

Try it yourself. Maybe it's just me.

Matt

I tried it yesterday, couldn't find it.
Which is quite odd considering.

La Femme

Or it really is just a made up word and some pompous lit teacher tried to convince you it had meaning. :D

Matt

Like all those Shakespearian words.
"Doth Brutus Bootless Kneal? Cirra, Give Place!"
"Speak Hands for me!"

The Wife

Well, something like that.

Deanatroi

Oh my god. I just saw a news story about a guy who stole a rare $3,500 bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. Where he hid it is sooo timely!

I hope that clerk got fired. That was some bad store monitoring.
