Jag undrar...

While taking a bit of a break from what I was supposed to be doing, I decided to sneak a peek at Cosmo online. Not exactly brain food, but amusing. I had to laugh, and wonder, at the following tidbit from "Sex Tips From Guys":

Tugging on my earlobe just a bit with your teeth makes me lose all sense of the English language.

Now, I wonder, is this equally applicable to the Swedish language?

Although I generally steer clear of websites that promise glamour to me when I'm browsing the web in nothing but a pair of very old briefs (horrible picture, I know, and I apologize profusely), I bit the bullet and read some of the tips. Quite amusing, although I would be willing to bet many are written by women, and all others have been re-written by women.

But for the question asked: as my personal experience with dentally administered light earlobe tugging is nonexistant I wouldn't really know. Given that the relative complexity of Swedish probably is slightly higher than English (I'm guessing) I would think the same loss in language sense could indeed happen.

Quite an entertaining blog, I must say. I suspect I will return regularly.

No, the opposite is true. If you bite someone's earlobe, they suddenly become fluent in Swedish, normally speaking with a slight Gotland accent. It's a very strange, scientific fact ;-)

If women wore as simple as I am there wouldn't be so much speculation :>

Well, it all depends on the force you apply. If you bite quite hard and thorough you might just get to hear some German

tusen tack eff, for that wonderful image.

i like swedish girl's theory. in fact, i'll have to do some research. i've always wanted to hear what a Gotland accent sounds like.

Well, I did apologize... Just imagine me being a svelte, handsome man and you should be just fine.

Yes eff, you did apologize. Problem is that I keep imagining that guy on your user pic in his boxer briefs.

Ah, I see. Well, that's Tommy Cooper and he's been dead since he kicked the bucket on stage in 1984.

He may not have been a good looking man, but he was a funny bastard. I don't know what type of underwear he wore, though.

I guess I'm a little bit better off. I don't think there are too many guys who would mind imagining Greta Garbo in her underwear.

I would think so too.

When it comes to the real me (if such a thing exists) I think ipecac would be a better choice... Unfortunately.
