Overheard on the bus. Seriously.

“Have you got your Easter Lily yet?”

“Nah. Not yet.”

*pause*

Easter Lily“You know why it’s shaped like a fanny, don’t you?”

*pause*

“What?”

“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.”

*pause*

“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.”

*pause*

“I don’t know what fannies you’ve seen…”

*pause*

“… 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.
