Tripping Along The Ledge


This is Funny

I accidentally sent a photograph of my penis to everyone in my address book today. Not only was it embarrassing, it cost me a fortune in stamps.

    Reminds me of the old story about Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams. They were in a restaurant once and a woman came over and asked Capote to autograph her naval. Capote obliged.

    The woman’s husband, jealous and a bit drunk, swaggers over, pops his lad out and says “While you’re at it, why don’t you autograph this too?”

    Capote looks at the man and says, “I don’t know about the autograph, but perhaps I could initial it!”

    @ Gueleton – I heard a variation of the same story. Capote and Gore Vidal who both hated each other were at different tables in a restaurant. A woman asked Capote for an autograph. Vidal was drunk, got jealous. When Capote was walking past on his way to the bathroom, Vidal whipped it out etc. etc. etc.

    I’m pretty certain it was a jealous husband. There’s another story that when Capote was visiting Perry Smith in jail one of the prisoners shouted “Suck my dick, you faggot” at him as he walked past the cells. Capote replied “I don’t snack!”

    The guy was a one-man small-dick-joke conveyor belt is what I think you’re saying…
