it’s a boat, folks, or rather, an article about said boat in the local paper, entitled ‘marina wants to send salty sailboat back to sea’. turns out this fellow, robert turobiner, brought his boat to the ventura harbor, and all the stuffyass yachty types are all agog about the name of the boat — ‘i learned from lesbians’ and his own original artwork which depicts two topless mermaids kissing. you can just see the kiss in the picture, it looks quite chaste to me. he also has a website, the url of which is apparently quite naughty. the picture is taken to deliberately obscure the url — all that’s visible is ‘hemtheywi’ though i’m not sure about that last ‘i’, and the next letter could possibly be ‘l’. it’s a long url, i’m thinking ifyou____themtheywill__.com. it’s so naughty, the paper doesn’t reveal it. the article itself is not in their online version. i have googled ‘robert turobiner’ and ‘i learned from lesbians’ which is also the title of his second CD, an acoustic CD. i have looked on mp3.com for his name. my not inconsiderable search skills have failed me.
the website is supposedly naughty in title only, turobiner is quoted as saying it ‘doesn’t live up to its name’. and i can’t find a damn thing online. it’s a mystery. but i’m on it. if need be, i shall travel to the damn harbor myself with my digicam and delve further into this. i must know.
and as for the harbor management and the fussyass yachtspersons who object to a couple topless mermaids smooching on a boat, well, all i can do is heave a heavy sigh. yeah, like suggestive boat names and mermaid boobies are a shocking new development in maritime lore. two other boats in the harbor, the ‘horny hooker’ and the ‘tail chaser’ aren’t being kicked out — i suppose corny double entendres involving fishing imagery are ok then.
can you just feel me rolling my eyes?
