Do NOT Google Hanging Naked Men

This post had objectionable content.

Can you please tell me the train of thought that led to the brilliant idea of attaching a PDF of images of flowers that look like a humanoid with an erection as drawn by a second grader and naming it "Do not google naked men?"? Because I'd love to hear it. -ST

Re: Good at solving Cryptic Clues?

I tend to be better at coming up with clues than solving them, but I still enjoy a good cryptic (as much as I enjoy a good pun - assuming I ever find one).
