I was watching the news a while back and I saw this caption under
"Nancy Pelosi flexes her clout." I thought, "Ewwwwwwwwwwww I don't even WANT to know what part of the anatomy her clout is." Then I wondered why the media thought is so important that the world should know this disgusting fact. Who in the hell would want to see her clout? Not I.
OK OK I'll confess. I am a walking talking dictionary. I know what clout means, but it just caught me off guard and in my usual gutter-mind mode, I couldn't help but laugh.
Don't worry, I'll save you the trouble of looking it up: Dictionary.com defines clout in this sense of the word as: Informal. pull; strong influence; muscle, esp. political power: a wealthy campaign contributor with clout at city hall.
Now that you have learned a new word, go out and use it as dirtily as possible!
In case you cant read it. The caption on my post pic says "If not for the gutter, my mind would be homeless" I found it very apropos.
