This is getting to be a little ridiculous and certainly not in good taste. This is definitely not an appropriate forum to this kind of thread. Clean up your act Art. You can be offensive and way out of line. I realize that people don't have to click on a thread but if we want to encourage young people to Mudcat and enjoy folk then this ought to be a site that parents don't have to worry about. I hope we don't need to start censoring thread titles. Let's stick to the folk topics. The threads on where people live and what they do are interesting and appropriate but this one is definitely not necessary.

Dear Annoyed,

Brother Art made a wholly appropriate thread for a folk music site. One of the most important of the folk genres is the one where a statement is made about how a society has lost its collective good sense. Brother Thieme has just pointed out that our online society seems to have lost its focus lately. And as one who has been participating in the loss of focus, he brought me back to center. Check out the threads in the last two weeks or so and it seems to focus more on online curiousity than music and the issues that spawn it. Now, I view you all as friends and acquaintances, hence I have been playing along. But I must admit to wondering where the music discussion had gone to.

Good job, Brother Thieme.

Can we please stick to the point of encouraging people to post whatever they like.

If you don't like the subject just ignore it and the thread will quickly die. I would like to think that no one here. is, or considers themselves to be more important than anyone else.

I for one mind less about threads here asking personal questions than ones that reduce the forum to the level of some of the newsgroups.

I am a little annoyed too.

I use trojan ribbed. I find this a perfectly acceptable conversation. To think that condoms is a dirty idea that kids should not be exposed to is a terrible attitude. My daughter was born in my wife and my senior year of High School. We are a teenage pregnancy. As a parent now, I beleive you should be able to talk about a condom with a straight face, comfortably and not as a dirty idea. You should be able to keep them on your night stand instead of your sock drawer. Your kids should be able to talk to you about it. We cannot deny the amount of sex in our society, the casual attitude towards it today, and the inevitable desire for it. To avoid talking about condoms is to pretend that sex does not exist or cannot hurt a person and a family. A condom is a good thing, and I will always deal with a condom as easily as I deal with a toothbrush, or a comb. Is it appropriate in the threads? Yes, it is life, folk is life, music and frieds and life is what this is all about. Sorry to the annoyed, but I don't see anything wrong with it here. Especially with such fine, open minded people that are the Mudcat.

Folkmusic not much fun any longer? Can't do the "Game of All Fours" in C above High C anymore?

Maybe it's because you just put the first scratch in that Martin D-28 you told us about on the "What Kind of Guitar Do You Play" thread in November. Maybe it's because you used those extra heavy strings you read about on the "What Kind of Strings Do You Use" thread and your 1964 Vega Pete Seeger long neck folded up like Myron Florin's accordion. Maybe it's because you're a 42 year-old diagnostic computer pathologist for a non-profit internet marketing firm making $535,000 a year but you work 26 hours a day and plug into Mudcat on your coffee breaks.

What are you gonna do? Trade in all your nGhardaraha na Ceoltori a Brachandurandandra CDs for Dr B and Da Bad Noose house-rap fusion discs? Not a chance!

Pull yourself out from underneath that snowbank (applies to North Americans living above a line stretched between San Francisco and New York and Brits living North of Spaghetti Junction), wipe that Ultimate 40 Suncreen off your sweaty red nose (applies to Australians currently not holidaymaking in the Blue Mountains) and sign up for Uncle Art's Family Folk Music and Condom Camp (location to be determined by on-line thread).

To secure your place, send $50 (American, Australian, Canadian or Euros accepted) to Art Thieme, c/o Walgreen's Drug Store, Port Authority Bus Terminal, New York, NY, USA. Please include 2 dozen new condoms (of your favorite brand). Art will personally test (possibly with another person) the integrity of each of these sheaths and report on his findings at the "Hi, my Mudcat user name is....?" cocktail party on the first night.

I agree with Max. It sure is a folk topic. There are plenty of jokes and folk tales about condoms and there is at least a handfull of songs about them.
Personally I thought the thread was hilarious and wasn't the least bit surprised to see that Art had started it.
So Annoyed, put your smile back on and search for condom in DT.

As a matter of interest, I wonder how many folksongs there are that can be attributed to someone not using a condom. Songs like 'Blow the candle out', 'The Nutting song' etc..

"condom-minimum"

....so there was this condom factory in Texas, and when Alaska was admitted to the Union, some Alaskans, who wanted to rub it in about now being the largest of the United States, placed an order for 12 gross of condoms..all to be 10 inches long!

The production manager went to the president of the firm and asked.."So, what do we DO with this order?"....The president thought for a minute and said...."Fill it....mark 'em 'medium'"

sure..those items are one aspect of our folklore..and I know several more jokes..but I suspect they are already on a hundred joke sites...

From: Jenny

I understand why this thread was started, but Max makes an excellent point. A forum is a group of individuals discussing a common thread. Not every thread is going to be for every person. My thinking is that if a thread doesn't interest one, don't go there. With cyber communications, most often we never see those with whom we are communicating; it's natural to want to know a bit more about one another. There has been a generality of feeling towards folk music mavens for many, many years. The generality is that we turn up our noses at anything that does not relate directly to traditional music, acoustic music, etc., i.e., we are folk music snobs. I know that isn't true, but some of the people visiting the Mudcat site may not. So ... if the threads wander off the the subject of playing/singing folk music, so be it. After all that business with gargoyle, I have been reluctant to do anything more than lurk in the forum and maybe a few others are feeling likewise, which would account for some of the more lighthearted threads. And, Max, the message you sent has to be taken seriously ... thanks for your candor. jenny

From: gargoyle

Being a "traditionalist" I prefer "Lambskins." Yes, they ARE from sheep intestions; they are commercially available at the local stores. If your concerns are mearly contraception and not "desease preventrion" they are tops....and they are reusable after washing.

From Junior High Days comes this ditty:

In days of old, when knights were bold,
And rubbers wern't invented
They tied a sock, around their cock
And babies were prevented.

Somehow I get an uneasy feeling that the Mudcat is being used for a college senior's demographic study in "Social Ecoology." Next questions will be dealing with "toothpaste," "detergents," and lengths of anotomical appendiges.

Of course condoms are O.K. to talk about, here or anywhere else, but they are a bit limited as a musical instrument, all I ever seem to get out of them is one loud percussive bang!

As we all know this thread was not started for the purpose of dicussing condoms but to make a point, it was made and with some humour but can we move on now?

Jenny said some good things and surely we all want eveyone here to feel that they can un-lurk and contribute. If they don't then I suggest that they are in the wrong place. We have to work hard towards a situation where people can feel free to do that, without all that tiresome stuff about if the subject is offline or discussed two years ago or anything else.

Reply to the thread, don't question the poster right to say it. To my mind The Mudcat is an inclusive 'club', without any stated rules that I am aware of and that is why I like it, if it ever becomes a place for the self-chosen few, I for one will not be there.

If you don't like the subject don't contribute, it is as easy as that. The posts about where, why and what we do, were and continue to be well supported (but from now on a little bit more inhibited) and that says it all.

Shambles, you gotta work on your technique. A condom works great as the string on my mini gut-bucket. Stretch it right, and it changes tune better than a rubber band. Of course, if we had three or four, we could really have a "rubber" band.

Shambles makes yet another good point! I sometimes get the impression that once there has been a thread on a given subject it is kind of a faux pas to bring the subject up again. But with new people coming along all the time we probably shouldn't worry about it too much. Same subjects may throw up new viewpoints anyway. So - how about digging in your memories and re-visiting some golden oldie subjects, just to counter-balance the lighter-hearted threads.

Subject: RE: What brand condoms do Mudcatters prefer.
From: Joe Offer

Hi, Kris - it's certainly just grand to bring a subject up again and again at the 'Cat. HOWEVER, it's far better to revive the old thread and continue the previous discussion, rather than starting a new thread and scattering the information all over. That way, we build a body of information, rather than repeating what has been said before. Go to the Forum Menu and try a Forum Search ( or click here), and see if there's even been a thread on the subject. If you post a new message to that thread, it will bring the whole thread to the top of the menu.
You can use the Filter on the Forum Menu to do a quick search for names of threads posted within the last year - if you want all the threads for the past year, leave the filter box blank and set the "age" for 365 days (or however long, up to a year)- be prepared to wait, because the list of a year's threads is long. You will see that some thread titles repeat over and over again, so information about certain subjects is scattered all over or hidden in threads with generic titles like "lyrics request" - THAT'S what we're trying to avoid.

It's amazing how we walk criss-cross and wander through so many different ideas. We force each other to explore to thoughts, some of which are outside our comfort zone. One day when we are old or dead, there will be some amazing traditional songs that will have been borne from the cosmos of the 'cat.

Hey Peter, Ya remember our go-rounds from a year plus ago, about some folks wanting to specify thread topics? Exactly right, "don't click..."

Gargoyle, somehow I just can't see myself washing out condoms. Would they go in with the whites? Do they survive the spin cycle? (smiley emoticon thingy)

Art, to answer the question posted, in my best Mae West lure, it ain't so much what the picture of the box looks like, honey, it's what it's filled with that counts.

To everyone else who's having fun with this one:

I once sold condoms which came in individual matchbook covers to a band in Boston called "Skin". Great advertising packet to hand out at concerts. This was at the height of the AIDS scare, so it was also very PC & "enlightened", besides being a LOT of fun!

When I was a kid we'd fill a condom with water (not to wash out a used one) and they'd expand and expand and expand and expand until the whole sink was filled with the totally unwieldy HUGE mass of water! It took four of us to grapple with it and get it to the edge of the roof of the 15 story building where I grew up in Chicago. We'd wait intil the guy we wanted to "get" was standing and waiting for the Sheridan Road 151 CTA bus and then we'd let the thing go!! When it did hit the ground (or the guy or whatever) it soaked everything from there to Lake Michigan.

Ah, nostagia!

Put me right off me D H Lawrence I can tell you.....

Mind you, if I was going to do this with a condom, it seems likely that the extra-strong nuthin's-gettin'-through-this-sucker variety would be a better candidate. it doesn't seem the time for the "extra-sensitive" type!

However, the nobelist intents to keep the thread's course within the bounds of the "Mudcat Mission" and the "Thread Topic" have elicited the some vocal bursts of hilarity (as a very somber person)that I have sledom experienced in many years of "netting." There are some "classics" here...but Kirs "this may throw up new veiw points" expresses it well.

It is with regret that I morn the, hopfully, transitory/momentary, departure of my dearest, most honorable, gracious, kind and benevolent Mr. B.Seed since this is precisely the type of thread he would have relished.

In the interest of a lyrical tradition:

An old man using a condom
Found he could never get a good bone.
But with a rubber band
It grew simply grand
Now his wife cannot leave it alone.

It is my qualified opinion that whatever brand of condom your dad keeps in his sock drawer is the best kind to drop off the fourth floor fire escape on the kid from the other clique. Proximity to concrete and or rosebushes helps immensely.

It is worth pointing out that this thread has probably the fastest rising contribution rate in the history of the Mudcat. 60 since the 11 of Jan is a record I think. There are others that are larger (over the 100 mark, but they came slower). The Princess Diana thread was pretty fast, but I don't think it competes. I think that is enough social science pornography for one paragraph.

It does make me think twice about starting a tongue-in-cheek thread!

One of the reasons I hang out with folkies, and why I majored in Philosophy, is that both groups tend to be interested in and knowlegable about, anything & everything! Folk music, however you view it, does tend to be about what 'folk' do everyday, and thus we have songs about dead cats, baling hay, sailing ships, and...yes...condoms. And it is a fact that the 'saltier' topics and songs have always gotten a lot of attention...jokes and songs are a LOT easier way to approach such topics than are moral diatribes and dry scholarship!

Subject: Lyr Add: FIRST JOHNNY (Frank McGrath)
From: Frank McGrath

Art - You will have to answer to a vengeful and bitter God for starting this thread.

I tried, manfully, to resist the temptations of the "Condom" thread - but failed. To say that condoms are close to my heart is incorrect both in the physical and emotional sense but they have had a very memorable and traumatic effect on my life.

You see, contraceptives were illegal in Ireland for many years and it was only in the first flush of my manhood that condoms became available - but only through a chemist shop. That's not very long ago either, eighteen years ago or thereabouts. So there was childish embarrassment about the purchase of these novel devices when they came on the market. There was also misunderstanding about there use - (many jokes about people chewing them to prevent pregnancy).

Thankfully, I never had to use the much because in my pre-marriage days - AIDs were things to assist old people walk. Unfortunately (fortunately) I did have to use them for a while.
I don't know about modern packaging but I can swear that condoms used to be argon welded into metal containers. Those metal foil packages were bastards to open even in the broad light of day in serene sense of mind. But try opening one in the back seat of a car in complete darkness with your blood lust rising to an unmanageable peak and maintain some semblance of romance - forget it!. So I was moved to songwriting to try and purge those terrible memories from my soul.

Assuming some daft git should want to sing this song - I use the air of the "Pool Song" (Jimmy Crowley version). But those without any respect for great songs have chosen the air to "Barr na Sraide" which is very similar and has the correct mournful "sean nos" feeling. Others prefer to use the air to "Sullivans John" which is faster and you can clip through this long dirge at a pace more acceptable to modern attention spans.
Anyway, I purge my soul one more time - and damn the Mudcat for reminding me.

So here is my revenge.

A song of love, lust, misfortune and
complex poly-hydrocarbon materials.

The Nenagh Singers Circle presents a song by Frank McGrath.
This song is semi-autobiographical. Unlike the character in the song, Frank McGrath survived (unfortunately) to tell this tragic tale. Wise old sayings tell us that truth is stranger that fiction and much more brutal. There is no doubt that Frank McGrath is both very strange and brutal, so his story must be truthful. But we know that it isn't, so therefore, wise old sayings must be a pile of shite. Which aptly describes this song.

First Johnny

Oh, I am oft times told, great stories old,
Of heroes long since gone.
And many a tale of sword and sail
And maidens quite undone.
But History has yet to record and set
The deed of daring done
And to expand on that act confound
How our man put his first johnny on.

Oh this battle great which I now relate
Begins in a Chemist Shop.
Our valiant Knight, his fists clenched tight,
'Waits hustle and bustle to stop.
When the coast is clear and no customers there,
He makes his gallant charge.
To the Alchemist said, with his face all red.
"A packet of 'dem yokes' please; ...size large!".

With his booty in store, makes for the door
With a plain paper wrapper discreet.
Back to his abode, he secrets his fine load.
Save his mammy and them yokes should meet.
Reviewing his plan, our heroic young man
His heart filled with victorious pride.
"Well aren't I cute, for securing the loot.
Shure all I need now is a ride".

To search for romance, our strong knight had no chance.
He excelled in uncommon bad looks.
So he brought his good steed with the greatest of speed
On a tour of the quay side and docks.
There he met a wan and a bargain was done
And they went back to her little home.
From her purse she took out a johnny most stout.
"Girl 'tis all right ... shure I brought me own".

Well our hero advanced with his great shining lance
To his lady, most eager to smote.
"Hold on there me buck, you'll not get your luck,
Save your little maneen wears his coat".
"I'm sorry my dear, your beauty's so rare
My mind with such passion did cloud.
Just hold on there a tick and I'll do me trick
This great charger in rubber we'll shroud".

Well into his pus the johnny packet was thrust
With a terrible tearing of teeth.
His gums got all gashed and his pallet was mashed.
Still no trace of the latex beneath.
'Tween clenched molar and jaw, and powerful gnarled paw
He gave it one last mighty heave.
When out suddenly shot, that condom much sought
Along with his two fine front teeth.

Not caring a toss, for his dual dental loss.
Expectation was numbing the pain.
And there at his feet, like a greasy old teat
Lay this object of sexual gain.
Blood streaming from face, downwards he did gaze
At a yoke not half an inch long.
His mind became fraught, with imperical doubt
"Shure that feckin thing won't fit on!".

With encouraging words, she explains johnnys works
To a student more eager than smart.
And without hesitation, but with much lubrication.
He put to protecting his part.
With the great speed of light, and all of his might
He rammed it right 'round his broad blade.
It flew off even faster, oh what a disaster.
Through his nostril, it entered his brain.

Not caring a damn, for his cerebellum
Shure 'twas only a minor mishap.
He procured a new packet, of smart rubber jacket,
And secured it beside his tooth gap.
'Tween clenched molar and jaw, and powerful gnarled paw
He gave it another good heave.
And to no ones surprise, there was dental demise.
And he lost two more fine healthy teeth.

Retrieving once more his condom from the floor
He took aim with the greatest precision.
He stretched the French Letter above his Red Setter
And launched up with a powerful incision.
His shot it was sure, with successful capture.
"Begob now I'm on the pigs back.!".
He let go with relief, which caused instant grief
It snapped tight round his soft tender sack.

With the frightening grip of a jubilee clip
The johnny cut off all circulation.
His members grew black from the root of his sack
And he viewed this with some consternation.
His parts to relieve, he bent down to retrieve
The condom with urgentful grasp.
It snapped off in the race and pulled over his face
And squeezing his throat with a gasp.

He fell to the floor, the girl ran to the door
Assistance she frantically sought.
To resolve the travail, a doctor she did hail
For her lover so tragically fraught.
With a very quick check, for a pulse in his neck,
The Doc made this mournful diagnosis.
"I hope you've been paid, cos my dear I'm afraid
Your friend has most severe rubber mortise".

Our man met his demise with great bulging eyes
And the coroner made his report.
"Mandibular traumatisation, facial laceration
And then shure the poor fucker choked.
Brain damaged by rubber, and oh yes your Honour,
If alive in great need of a denture".
The judge he was grave, as the verdict he gave
"Cause of death was by mis-condom-venture".

So come all you young boys, when your ladeen does rise
Take care of that condom most cursed.
Use a patched inner tube or a Wellington boot
Or the bag from a corn flakes box first.
Don't let your ambitions create inhibitions
When your maneen protection must don.
And remember the story so frightful and gory
How our man put his first johnny on.

Of geez, here goes nothing.

Most of you may have figured out by now, but for those who hadn't and are still confused (and just really, really gotta know), typically, a dental dam is associated with safe sex for lesbians during cunnilingus for the prevention of transmitting STDs. It is thick (thereby hampering pleasure-ability), doesn't taste good (again...)and there is controversy about its effectiveness. Saran wrap is actually a more highly chosen safe sex barrier in this situation, from my experience and that of other lesbians I know. Whether dental dams are used by heterosexual couples, I don't know, although I've wondered.

I know this is probably MUCH more than anyone here ever wanted, needed or hoped to hear about dental dams at the mudcat. I apologize if I have offended any readers.

I admit, I already knew what dental dams are, heard about them YEARS ago. I don't know any songs or limericks about them. There's a thread about how much time people spend on Mudcat; my visits are getting longer and longer because Joe keeps adding all these links. I came to this thread after reading the methodologies threads Joe sent me to. And then I had to look at the condom catalogue; I'm pleased to see it has a "Secure Server".

Max and Barbara write about dad's sock drawer. Well, I did once rifle my dad's drawer when I was young(er) and found something I never forgot. It was written on a piece of paper. My excuse for writing it here is that SteveF gave me an html assignment to type out two limericks; so here's no. 1: There was an old man all forlorn
Who wished he had never been born
And he wouldn't have been if his father had seen
The place where the rubber was torn.

TRANATLANTIC MISUNDERSTANDING

Of course I would never dream of wearing a toilet bowel on my penis - especially if I wanted to stand (no pun intended) any chance of having sex with anything except for that rare person with a plumbing fetish.
But on this side of the Atlantic we would consider it more than odd for someone to urinate (or worse) into a condom.

Also, I am sure the gay liberation groups in North America would be quite upset to hear that Irish and even British people still set fire to fags and smoke them in public - having purchased a packet of twenty in a local store. Similarly, we find the Americans obsession with civil rigths for cigarettes at least quaint if not completely bizarre.

And those US TV programmes and films where the gentleman says to the lady;
- "Can I give you a RIDE" -
Well on this side of the Atlantic, no gentleman would ever dream of being so blunt and crude to a lady. We are much more self effacing - we might say - "I suppose a ride is out of the question? - and we would still probably get a slap in the kisser.

Ha! I've just remembered a lovely incident from a few years back.

A chap I know started working as a barman at the local pub. He was quite nervous and anxious to please. It was a lunchtime, and a gent who had just recieved his dinner and collected his knife & fork leant over the bar and asked 'Excuse me, where are the condiments? Our lad replied 'I think there's a machine in the gents.'

Ouch.

The second woman goes right to the drug store and announces to the sales person that she wants some condoms! The salesperson is rather amazed at the age of the person wanting that item. He askes her, "What kind do you want?" The answer? "Just give me one that'll fit a Camel!"

Once I was in the pub with my buddy Liam and a young fella who had just started working for us. At the time Liam and I were about 40 and the young man, a new Union Rep, about 28 or so, was putting the moves on this young one who sat down with us. Liam and I were just sitting there, amazed at the line of blarney and being done with a straight face and all. We were rapt with attention, enjoying the joust. Several jars of Uncle Arthur's finest later, the young fella was still going(the young woman was humoring him), when he asked her, straight faced and trying his best to be a sensitive man of the '90's, "Have you ever noticed how men give cutesy little names to their penes? I looked at Liam and he looked at me, and I said "I don't think Big Ed is such a cutesy little name" and Liam shot back "I call mine Sgt. Steiner, please kiss his helmet". Needless to say, we kind of messed up his line, the young woman started laughing and walked away a few minutes later. This young man has never forgiven us.

Big Catspaw,
I have never used "penes" in my life. But I learn so much here. Where the hell else would I learn a song like McGrath's.

Frank,
speaking of your song, I did indeed do it in a small group after the performance. I just sang it to a tune that I made up to fit. The guys and gals just roared. I, of course had to help them with vernacular a bit. They absolutely roared. I got the distinct impression that I may have to do this more. I had one advantage though, my dear friend. I had just finished doing a benefit for a slain State Trooper. Wasn't much chance of me landing in the pokey. When next I am in Ireland, I will pay you your "royalties" in Uncle Arthur's and songs.

First of all, I like the ones with the red race cars on the packet. You can find them in the men's toilet in most pubs in the UK. There are, though, typically 4 problems in purchasing them there:
1) The odds are at least 50/50 that the machine will take your money and give you nothing in return
2) Buying things like this is a men's room is a great way to meet blokes and, if that's not your thing, it could be embarrassing for the other party
3) I always seem to be standing in at least 2 inches of water when I do this and at least 1 coin always seems to slip from my fingers
4) The machine is usually placed right next to the door and I get smacked by it at least 5 times during the transaction as intoxicated patrons enter the WC.

Second, and this for Big Mick who wrote above on 18JAN at 8:54PM about he and Liam being in a pub together, I have checked with Liam, Mick, and he tells me that the incident you describe did not happen that way at all. He left with the young lady! All the best,

Here is my one contribution to this thread. It could just as well go with all the other jokes I added to the 'cheering up' thread. Maybe you have heard this one. -----------

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night and have dinner with her parents. Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and have sex for the first time. Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms. The pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex. At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he'd like to buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack or family pack.The boy insists on the family pack, he explains to the pharmacist that he is expecting to have a big night with his girlfriend tonight. That night, the boy shows up at the girls parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door. "Oh I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!" The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated. The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down. 10 minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy. Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend finally leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, "I had no idea you were this religious." The boy turns, and whispers back, "I had no idea your father was a pharmacist."

I was also going to criticize Catspaw for the audacity of keeping this tasteless thread alive. However, I noticed the last posting on "Concom II" is my "refresher" post.

Your humble servant,

Well see RiB ol' budddy, there wasn't a blue clicky thing on #2 and I hated to give Will a bad example.

I also send my apologies to Square Deal, Square Shootin', Square Root Joe Offer, who discovered, on this very thread, a website for Dental Dams.
