Begging for a Pegging?

posted by on October 9 at 14:36 PM

Did “Ink Pen” cartoonist Phil Dunlap sneak a very dirty joke onto the comics pages of America’s daily newspapers on purpose? Or by accident?


Is there some other sort of pegging a person can beg for besides this kind of pegging?

Thanks to Slog tipper Bill.

Pegging, spanking, AND flogging. Good times.

yes. look at your dictionary.

3. to strike with a peg so as to hook or pierce.
8. to throw (to peg a ball to first base).

It's colloquial for a straight punch to the stomach. Pretty common in the older hero comics.

Nice, Dan. You just dumped a shit load of trouble on some poor artist. Try to restrain your impulses.

Dan didn't play sports growing up. Apparently.

Dan, you may be a lascivious slut, but surely as a writer-type you can see the context is pretty obviously "a punch". If legs can be stems, then arms can be pegs.

Which, I guess, could lead to a whole other specie of sexual reference... but no, no, that would just confuse matters.

Homonyms should be fair game for people acting under strict censors. Dave Chappelle got to say "Skeet, Skeet, Skeet." on TV. why can't ths guy get away with it too?

Aw, you're all taking Dan down a peg or two.

No! NO! That word was INVENTED by DAN SAVAGEZ!!

Heh, "Homonym"

It's also a rodeo term when the steer wrestler grinds the horn into the ground. (ooooo...still sounds sexual, no?)

Yuh think that's bad, I got a friend named...(wait for it)...Peggy!

If memory serves me right, when Dan was running the "what to call pegging" contest, he had an Aunt Peg and was preparing to take a load of crap (no pun intended) from her once the results finalized on "peg."

"Beggin' for a peggin'"? Hmmm. "BfaP" could be a really useful abbreviation in the personals. Imagine the T-shirt and bumper-sticker potential here.
