VARIANT OF IMPOTENCE STORY

IT SEEMS MR. JONES DECIDED TO GIVE UP SEXUAL INTERCOURSE
FOR LENT. HE WAS TELLING A FRIEND ABOUT HIS PROBLEM IN
ABSTAINING.
"THE FIRST FEW DAYS IT WASN'T SO BAD, BUT EVERYDAY AFTER
THAT IT BECAME WORSE. ONE DAY SHE BENT OVER TO PICK UP
A CAN AND I ALMOST ATTACKED HER, BUT I FOUGHT IT OFF.
A FEW MINUTES LATER, SHE BENT OVER AGAIN AND I ALMOST
SCREAMED, BUT I FOUGHT IT OFF. THE NEXT TIME SHE BENT
OVER, TO PICK UP A CAN, I COULDN'T FIGHT IT ANY LONGER.
I GRABBED HER, THREW HER DOWN, TORE OFF HER CLOTHES,
AND FINALLY SATISFIED MYSELF. OF COURSE, THEY WON'T
LET US SHOP AT A & P ANYMORE."

Submitter comment: THIS STORY, I BELIEVE, IS THE SAME AS THE ONE ABOUT
HOWARD JOHNSON'S. THE INFORMANT, A FORTY YEAR OLD MAN
FROM STEUBENVILLE, OHIO, IS PROUD OF HIS ABILITY TO
RELATE A STORY. HE HAS A SLIGHT OHIO DRAWL WHICH
ADDS A GREAT DEAL TO THE EFFECT.
