The Treat of the Graham Cracker

Though the end of May means that Masturbation Month is officially over, it is acceptable (and encouraged!) to continue to celebrate this time-honored solo-love love-fest throughout the year ... this is similar to the notion that April is Earth Day Month, but many continue to recycle the other 11 months of the year (or so the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency informs us).
Future blogger GAK directed me to a significant information regarding the historical importance of the Graham cracker and masturbation:
s'moreI'm so peeved at myself for not knowing about this historical connection that I could beat myself up for my poor researching skills; not in the same way as when Ike used to beat Tina*, but more like when Elmer Fudd kicks himself for being tricked by the silly Bugs Bunny. Well, I'm off to restock my supply of graham crackers for s'mores at the upcoming summer beach parties.
*Domestic violence is nothing to laugh about ... just ask John Wayne Bobbit.

yet another food you Americans are withholding from Australia! We are a friendly people, why must you be so unkind?

Blogger Nam LaMore

LOZ: hold on! you make it sound like there's nothing to eat in australia except cardboard.

that can't possibly be true, cuz i always hear about how the australians are such big BBQ fans -- what are you guys BBQing there?

Blogger Lester T.

Blogger Loz

Oh my, so that was WHY graham crackers were made. Does that mean people had excess in their sexuality?

Too bad, I can't find them Graham Crackers here in NL. Maybe I try some American shop and see if they have. I used to eat heaps of this while growing up.

THE DUTCHED PINAY: personally, i don't think there can ever be an EXCESS OF HUMAN SEXUALITY. as someone had reminded me recently, the most pacifist of ape societies is the bonobo (pygmy) chimpanzee.

these chimps use sexual greetings among its members -- i forget, but i believe there's only one taboo relationship (mother-child), otherwise, all the members greet each other by having sex. there is no recorded instance of conflict in that society.

though you might not be able to find graham crackers in NL, i remember buying DIGESTIVE BISCUITS all the time -- and, they taste very similiar to graham crackers -- to have with my weak tea.

speak up!
