Prepare to be Offended

Fair warning: Insalubrious material ahead!

If you click on these links, you are likely to be offended....and you may wet your merkin, umm, if you wear one. Put your coffee down.

The merkin - Scotland's gift to humor (well, one of them anyway). Does Lee Corso wear one?

The Straight Dope: What is a merkin?

And then there is this hilariously tasteless bit on hypospadia.

And yeah there is a serious side to this one as discussed by Nicholas Kristof.

Alas, I don't think there is a serious side to merkins although the folks at alt.usage.english newsgroup gives a good try. Maybe George Bush was actually pulling a fast one and actually meant refer to his fellow citizens as 'my fellow merkins'!
