Search inside…my PANTS

Courtesy of my friend Mel, check out this serendipitous placement of the Amazon.com “Search Inside” arrow.

All I can say to Lady Chatterley is: Honey, if you need to search for it, you might want to look into getting a new lover. I’m just sayin’.

    Can you imagine what the stepback cover for that must look like?

    Oh, someone *had* to know it was placed like that!  And so apropos for the book.  I love it.

    What also struck me as funny was how the description for the book says that modern readers now appreciate this book for Lawrence’s masterful writing instead of just the sex scenes.  If that’s so, why did they still feel the need to put a crotch shot on the cover? :-)

    Holy CrapPants! That’s some cover. But I’ve never read the book- just seen the BBC mini-series with Sean Bean. Who showed everything (and I mean everything).

    Hey, and there’s even a zoom in option right on top of pic!  Need to look closer?  *g*

    I guess it’s safe to assume I’m not the only one who ran to Netflix and searched for Sean Bean?  Hurry up, post office!

    That’s priceless.

    Does anyone else think that’s a rather crude cover for the book, though? Am I getting prissy in my old age? Or is this another aspect of the “the cover should accurately portray what’s inside” argument?

    “services77”—oh, I am laughing much too hard, now!

    If you are going to rip off the Sticky Fingers album cover include the damn zipper and the picture of Mick’s tighty whiteys with da boner!
    Damn literary classic packaging wanna be rock stars.

    Needs more coffee.

    Yikes! I just think I was thrown down in the hay.

    Sean Bean full frontal in a BBC miniseries… I am there. Has anyone seen BBC’s Clarissa? This is where I fell in love with him- talk about an antihero. And then the Sharpe movies- very very hot that man is.

    I was so into Mellors when I was a fifteen-year-old wannabe slut!

    In fact, I can remember Miss—yes, Miss—Armbruster, my sophomore English teacher, stopping at my desk during study hall and asking me, in an unmistakably snide and disapproving voice, “Who’s reading list is that on?”  (She was referring to Lady C.)  I gave her my most innocent teenaged look and said, “Mine.”

    Some years later, I realized Mellors was certainly not circumcised.  This made a huge difference in my perception of him after I learned the word smegma.

    (Please, forgive me.  I’m sorry sorry sorry if I’ve offended anybody.  Just blame that horrid-sounding, seemingly phlegm-related word!)

    Is this the place to say how much I friggin’ HATE Lady Chatterley’s Lover?  Good God, that part where he goes on and on about the “woman’s blind beakishness.”  Some day I’m going to write a time-travel book where some woman goes back and gets with Mr. Mellors and he makes his speech about the beakishness and she says, “You know what?  Shut the fuck up.  Just shut the fuck up about the beak, you freaking paranoid misogynist.”

    Oh, and I saw Sean Bean in some awful tv movie once where he was burning his lower-class lover with a cigarette.  Anyone else see that?  I’m thinking maybe it was the “sequel” to Gone With the Wind, but I can’t remember for sure.

    Huh? That’s my favorite word next to sweat and jockstrap. But I’m to real for pay TV.

    Anyone seen the new french version? It won all sorts of awards in France. All I’m saying is that standards must be different in France, because that is 3 hours of my life I’m not getting back.

    though I’d be interested – if anyone else has seen it – in opinions about our hero’s package. I’m having an argument with a friend about whether it was really his, or whether they pulled in a stunt-cock…

    (short83…you’re telling me! :) )

    katidid, I don’t know about anything else, but I do know that “stunt-cock” is going to be my word of the day today!

    I’m guess I’m a glass half full kind of girl, cuz I just saw the invitation to do a thorough search, not having trouble finding the prize. Either way it’s still funny!
