If you can't find Nymphomania, you can always visit Climax, Colorado. Or Beaver Lick, Kentucky. And in Pennsylvania, visiting Intercourse is always a possibility, but don't take a wrong turn and end up in Blue Ball. Of course, NJ listeners and DJs can just visit Dicktown.

Driving once with friends, we turned onto a smalltown route called Shy Beaver Road. The sign made me think, "Pfuh, the local kids and probably adults must get regular guffaws with this." Moments later on that very road -- what are the chances, eh? -- I saw a woman in a bathrobe sitting on her front steps above a sloped yard, with the sightline just so and the back of the robe hanging open just so below her bent legs...well, sir, it was fleeting enough to not quite be the bluntest full mon(s)ty, but it was enough to note that THAT was not the neighborhoods eponymous shy one.

I had the 'Tell Me' single as a kid. The B-side had a mean cover of the Fab 4's 'I Wanna Be Your Man'. 'Tell Me' is sort of an early example of jingle jangle. The single cuts out the jangly lead guitar solo; that's on the album.

Re: The character of "Homer Simpson" changing his name to Bruce in that weird song "I Fell for Her, She Fell for Him & He Fell for Me": Back in the 70s, "Bruce" was apparently regarded as a gay-sounding name. CBS executives made the producers of "The Incredible Hulk" TV show change Bruce Banner's name to David Banner because they thought "Bruce Banner" sounded gay. (What jerks!)

Wow, "The Bull and the Beaver" -- what a song! So lascivious.
