Magic Shake-Ball

Dear Magic Shake-Ball:

In the bath tub tonight, my young son announced that there should be a ride called "Sprout the Flower" at Storyland. "Sprout the Flower" is his personal performance art piece where he likes to--how shall I say it?--invert his tiny manhood and then watch it grow. Inappropriate delusions of grandeur, or good clean fun?


"A scaly gauntlet now with joints of steel/ Must glove this hand." (2 Henry IV 1.1.146-47)


Yikes. Okay, Shake-Ball, I hear you loud and clear. Forget the whole closeted Catholic theory--I think you must have been a Puritan.

  1. BWAH! (I can just hear him, seeing this post in years to come: "I cry thee mercy then, for I have read/ That thou hadst call'd me on these kiddie games.")
