"I'm a country boy, I've got a 4 wheel drive
Pile in my bed, I can take ya for a ride
Up city streets, down country roads
I can get ya where you need to go
Cause I'm a country boy."
Richard: "I don't think I'm wrong in saying that the sexual imagery here rivals that of the best English poets. For instance, here's an oft-quoted line from Marvell's "To His Coy Mistress": "Let us roll all our strength, and all /Our sweetness, up into one ball;/And tear our pleasures with rough strife/Thorough the iron gates of life." It's unecessarily cluttered, don't you think? But Jackson's fusion of driving and sexual imagery culminates in a wonderful boast about his sexual prowess. When he insists that "I can get ya where you need to go" he's bragging not only about his driving skills, but about his ability to bring the woman to orgasm."
Chip: "He's certainly right that country boys are very skillful in the bedroom. I think it's because we grew up watching animals fuck."
Faithful readers will recall the LC's recent report on Judson King, the 11 year old whose half-hour presentation on domestic hedgehogs at a City Council meeting convinced the city fathers to rewrite their legislation on the matter. Young King is in the news again: after many years of studying pictures of hedgehogs, he finally received a real live 'hog for Christmas. The touching story was the lead-off piece in yesterday's 6 News at 6 (ahead of stories about various murder trials and a piece about an escaped convict) and you can watch the video for yourself here (please do):
