The old razzle-dazzle



"Five against one" has long been my favorite euphemism for masturbation. "Five against one?" I'll exclaim, retreating to my room. "I like those odds!"


However, I've realized that given the early connotations of the word that now refers exclusively to America's first original indigeous art form, "jazz hands" is an accurate and literal description of the act. So I think I'll try that one out for a while.

The phrase "copious jazz hands" has been an inside joke with a mutual friend of ours for the past few weeks. Now I feel dirty.

Thanks for ruining everything, Peter.

I hope I did ruin everything! Our mutual friend will be back to relying on the ol' jazz hands before you know it.
