Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps

Maxim magazine has placed a number of posters in my neighborhood (and, doubtless, in others) urging women not to manicure their men, as it removes their "rough edges". I think I speak for possessors of sensitive erogenous tissue everywhere when I say that if you ignore my complaints about your rough edges, you are going to find yourself relying heavily on your Maxim magazine, if you know what I mean.

I have to come up with an idea for a final project for my Shakespeare and the London Theatre class before 3:30 this afternoon. I'm thinking of choosing a passage/scene and performing it/getting other people to perform it various ways, possibly including rewriting in contemporary language and/or setting. This has an obvious presentation component, but a much less obvious paper component.

We are currently reading Much Ado About Nothing. Beatrice/Benedick forever, and a pox on anyone who doesn't think that loud declarations of hate can be a perfectly sound basis for a pairing. ;)

Does anyone want to hear my rant about my hatred for the MPAA rating system in all its manifestations, but especially on fanfiction? I keep meaning to write one, and then getting distracted by shiny things instead.

Okay! I hate the MPAA rating system! Hate hate hate hate hate hate hate!

... this is going to need some work, isn't it?
"Rough edges", as it were, can be very sexy, no doubt about it. Whining about how you have been emasculated by a form a grooming is, however, pretty much never sexy. Also, I think the victory is going to be pretty hollow for any oh so manly man who gets booted out of bed along with his poorly-maintained equipment. ;)
I'd read a rant about that. And I would stand around with a placard encouraging passers-by to come and hear your wise and ranting words. (Well, as long as it wasn't raining.)
I swear, countless pair of my underwear have been deathly snagged due to my husband's "ragged edges."
It's certainly not a good system for rating porn. In fact, doesn't the MPAA get pissed about people using it for rating fic?
