Overheard on the bus. Seriously.
“Have you got your Easter Lily yet?”
“Nah. Not yet.”
“You know why it’s shaped like a fanny, don’t you?”
“The Easter Lily badge. You know why it’s shaped like a fanny?”
“Shaped like a fanny? What are you talking about?”
“It’s shaped like a vagina.”
“What-ta fuck are you on about?”
“A vagina. The Easter Lily is shaped like a vagina. It’s symbolic, like. Easter… Re-birth. White… Purity. Ireland… Womanhood. Easter Rising… Birth of a nation.”
“I don’t know what fannies you’ve seen…”
“… What about the Stickies then?”
These two may not have known it, or maybe one of them did, the lily has indeed been a symbol of eroticism and sexuality since the time of ancient Greeks at least.
