This series is inspired by the "Words From
Unity" public service announcements
that ran on television (particularly in
Kansas City) in the 1970's and 80's.
Back in the 1980's, long before Facebook, computer bulletin board systems were the way to friend and like and message through a monochrome system of postings and replies. In one particular thread, one young lady took time out to consider what she deemed the raunchier things in life. Others, your servant included, added to that list in successive postings. Here are some of my contributions. Remember, I was barely a teenager, and I was waxing mischievous, so please don't reply to me saying, "Some of these things don't fit the definition of 'raunchy.'" I know they don't.

  • Gum stuck on the ceiling (or anywhere else)
  • Intestinal gas
  • Parking the car up the street, walking down the street and seeing it roll past you
  • Slugs
  • Sticky Christmas tree resin
  • Various brands of canned pet food, especially upon opening the can
  • Some stinking cow
  • Old Milk Duds
  • Grapefruit juice

Obviously, your list will vary -- greatly.
