Whoremonger

Roll it around your mouth.... whoremonger.

I read in the letters to the ed yesterday about some crim who was a whoremongerer, and honestly no other profession title has ever sounded so appealing.

Whoremonger

Like 007, but twice as cool.

1. A prostitute's customer
2. A pimp who procures whores

Which one sounds so appealing?

Martha said...

Just the word.

Tom said...

That is indeed the best-sounding profession. It even eclipses the best description I've ever heard when asking someone what they did. "Me? I'm a wastrel." He then backed up his description by buying bottles of Krug for anyone who walked past.

Ah, Mondo Cucina in the good old days...

Wastrel is brilliant, especially since he was one. Brilliant.

I put 'hedonist' on the electoral roll a few years ago, they didn't use it. At the time it was actually totally accurate. Wankers.

I've always rather fancied being a professional Rapscallion.

I always rather fancied you were.

I've always liked the word philanthropist. That has a fancy sound to it. It also has the added benefit of being somewhat more repectable than whoremonger. That said, the average philanthropist probably has less fun

I want to be a professional dilettante when I grow up

i.e. An amateur or dabbler; especially, one who follows an art or a branch of knowledge sporadically, superficially, or for amusement only.

Me? I am just feculent. My scrofula is inflamed and I have a rash in my natal cleft.

Martha said...

I'm loving the natal cleft. However I'm worried about the scrofula, I'm sure that is a notifiable condition.
