Putting your Finger on It

Well, there it is….

Not, I’ll admit, the most impressive specimen of its type you’re likely to see, I must admit, but considering the cold weather, it is probably the best one you’ll be getting your hands on, providing you warm them up first.

You will, however, have to be very careful, after all - as someone of your experience and worldliness must know - the Double Entendre is a very shy creature, not seen as often as it used to be out in the wild. There was a time when the Double Entendre used to run wild and free across this great… er… avera… mediocre… country of ours.

Back in those days there wasn’t a place where the wild Double Entendre could not be found, in both rural and urban settings, with almost every place where people gathered, both private and public, having at least a pair of domesticated Double Entendres about the place for the amusement of the people gathered there, especially when one of them ran up the inside leg of one of the ladies and its cheeky little head popped up whenever there was a lull in the conversation.

Of course, every comedian in the land had a specially trained herd of Double Entendres they would bring out during their performances, much to the amusement of the audience who waited with great anticipation for the sight of the comedian whipping out his Double Entendre for the first time that evening.

These days though, the Double Entendre is seen as rather unfashionable and rather old hat, especially when someone catches sight of its old hat. Still, though, times change and maybe one day the Double Entendre will again be as fashionable as it once was.
