AHEM, SHLOG?

Alright, I'm tired of friends reluctantly saying the name of my blog. And of fellow bloggers reluctantly posting the name of my blog.

I get it. It's dirty.

"Shlog" is similar to "shlong." "Shlong" (actually spelled "schlong") is a slang term used by thirteen year olds no later than the nineteen eighties for "penis." "Penis" is the anatomical name given to one component of male genitalia. Genitalia are utilized in sexual intercourse. Those who don't engage in sexual intercourse as regularly as we very attractive happily married folk giggle at the mere mention of a word in any way related to sexual intercourse.

"That's funny. He said penis and then geni-something and a long word with sex in it...a lot."

Grow up.

Shaun + Blog = SHLOG. That's all.

shaun,

to further your etymological understanding of "shlong"...

the german word for snake is schlange, which sounds like shlong-u. Make the natural connections and you see how we reach 13 y/o thoughts.

You could try "Blog + Shaun = Blaun" instead. Or maybe "Blog + Groves = Bloves". Somehow you could also call it "Glrog".
The list goes on and on... explore your options.

Oh, great! Being of the much older, married and female persuasion I had never put this together and just assumed that shlog was shauns + blog. Now I can't even say the name of your blog anymore without giggling...

Maybe you should have a contest for your faihful readers to re-name your blog. Wait, from reading their comments it would probably be worse.

cheers,
shari

I saw the obvious from the start, both Shaun+Blog and schlong (I never thought I would type that!), but figured that the former was your intent. The latter I have not heard since I was at a B52's concert when they sang "Strobelight".

I did. And in an unexpected turn of events it's attracted more than forty viewers from this link posted over on Derek Webb's message board.

Geez, tough crowd.

that was hilarious! what really made it even more so was the giggling baby picture! I had honestly never thought that when i saw the word 'shlog'. . maybe it's a 'guy thing'?! *a young guy thing?* and I suppose because there's such a huge variety of words for penis?!

I am a nurse. I see a penis on a regular bases. It is so true how young people smurk at the word. I liked the picture you used!

P.S.
I did not think of penis either when I read SHLOG. Now you have planted that seed in my mind. What will I do????

I never thought of "shlog" as a dirty term but I'm always careful when I type in shlog.com - you never know what might be hidden in those misspellings!
