How Did I End Up On The Cover Of This Romance Novel?

Last week at the supermarket, while shopping for my weekly supply of three dozen eggs and 12 pounds of mutton, I spotted a rack near the checkout...


Actually, he is pretty Hot. And must look great with his shirt torn open and six-pack abs rippling. Lotsa mantitty. (Readers of Delicate Sensibility, avert your eyes.) Only flaw is that I prefer brunettes.

I wonder if they intended "spotted a rack" to be funny in it's own right?

Charles..you stole my thunder...I was going to seize on the rack comment myself. We are disgusting. Thank god.

Sphinx Ink believes you are correct. Mr. Duncan Larksthrust, author as well as subject of the article, no doubt intended all meanings that could be read into his phrases.

Sphinx Ink also is disgruntled because she didn't catch the reference herself. But then, Sphinx Ink is female and her mind does not travel the same paths as the male mind. Except for sometimes.
