“Little Red Corvette” And Low Standards

Posted by admin - 11/04/12 at 05:04 am

You ever get that moment when you see something from your youth, and because you are now an adult, you actually take the time to think about it and it makes no sense?

Happens to me all the time, which kind of sucks. I’ll be listening to the radio and hear something like “Beat It” and think to myself, “Man, Michael Jackson was so popular he could take a lyrical piece of crap like ‘No one wants to be defeated‘ and make us buy it.”

Anyway, I had another one of those moments tonight and heard “Little Red Corvette.” I never really thought about how Prince said the girl had a “pocket full of horses, Trojan, and some of them used.”

It doesn’t matter how hot you are or what kind of Prince-inspired dirty stuff you’re willing to do. If I find you with used condoms in your pocket, that’s a deal-breaker, ladies.

I’m all about the safe sex, but you should discard those as soon as you’re finished with them. Even if the bedroom only has a wicker trashbasket, you can throw them away when you get to the bathroom. Please.
